This set is the best!!! When we do house swaps, it really looks as though I am a world traveler. I have decorated an entire shelf with the set of boxes and worry dolls along with one of Novicas worry doll mirrors. Together the boxes and dolls and the mirror look just beautiful!!!
I love these Guatemalan worry dolls. I gave them as a gift and they arrived in a lovely box, ready to give. Thank you!
These little dolls are adorable. They would make a great stocking stuffer or small gift for any holiday.

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.
