"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.

"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!
