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

"LOTS of Cute and Colorful Worry Dolls"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The Lopez Garcia family has created some of these well-made dolls with light faces and some with brown faces, which I like very much. These Quitapenas (Worry dolls) are larger and more detailed than some I have bought other places years ago. It will be so much fun to give them as uplifting gifts. They will make my friends and relatives smile during these difficult months, because they make me smile every time I look at them. The Lopez Garcia family even tucked in a postcard of a site in Guatemala telling me thank you. I am so glad I purchased this set of 100 dolls.
