"Great Gifts!"

I LOVE these little worry dolls! They are great as a decoration on a gift or just to give a friend who is going through a hard time. My granddaughters sleep with one under their pillows, to take their worries away.

"Family Tradition"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

A tradition that began with my Grandmother. Her church supported these missions, and she passed the significance of the Worry Doll message to me: Place a Worry Doll under your pillow when you go to bed at night and give her your worries!. Now, my granddaughters are receiving Worry Dolls, and I share the legend with them. Barbara
