"Guatemalan Worry Dolls"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

Never heard of worry dolls until my granddaughter told me about them. She wanted them for Christmas. I was amazed at the detail. She loves them. I just hope she doesn t have that many worries that she uses them all up! Beautiful craftsmanship

"My first NOVICA order but not my last!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Worry dolls get an upgrade! Here they are a little larger than they ones I remember having in my youth, but they are perfect ornament size which is for what these are intended. They have cute, sparkly glitter foam wings in an array of colors. Oh, theyre so darling and JUST the thing these days to take your worries away for you on a 2021 Christmas tree. Beautifully made in a colorful guatemalan cotton print drawstring bag for storage. Just a great little set! Thank you.

"Beautiful and beautifully made!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love these little dolls! The little wooden box they come in is painted so beautifully, and each doll is different. Theyre each so tiny, yet so intricately sewn in gorgeous, vibrant colors, all with different dresses and head coverings. I always use them to tell my worries to, and they always help me to sleep in peace. I will treasure them and definitely look for more beautiful things from this artist!
