Perfect gifts for friends/family who are sick or experiencing difficulties.”

These charming hand made dolls each hold a heart to accept things that the receiver is troubled by. This allows them to get much needed sleep and healing relief by turning each trouble over to one doll who clearly has a BIG HEART.
