What A Treasure!
My grandmother gave me these when I was a young girl. I am planning on sharing them with my grandchildren and grand nieces and nephews (over 40 in all!). Every time I receive a discount coupon, I buy more.
For My Mexican Friend
I bought this for my best friend (her family is from Mexico) for her birthday. I didnt actually see it because it came to me giftwrapped, but it was WELL protected in its box. It was wrapped for dear life. So, if youre concerned about the fragility of it... Im not sure how it could possibly break with how well they packaged it in paper.
Guatemalan Worry Dolls
Years ago my high school Spanish teacher told us about worry dolls and gave us each one. I was excited to find these at Novica. I love the Two Mothers worry dolls because of the beautiful colors of their outfits and the attention to detail. The López García family does outstanding work.

Once you've told them, you put them under your pillow. It is said that during the night, while we sleep, the dolls will whisper the solution to our troubles. For us, crafting the worry dolls - - is our main source of income.It allows us to provide our children with an education as well as a job for all of us."
