"Very sweet dolls"

Bought these doll mothers with children to give to a neighbor. She had once said she loved the little doll used as a package decoration that came with Novica wrapping. We both had our first children at the same time. They are now adults. So this set appealed to me as a gift related to our friendship. Very colorful and sweet. Thank you.

"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.
