Details

Traditional Guatemalan worry dolls share the love as festive ornaments by the Lopez Garcia Family. Each doll in the set of six is crafted by hand and wears a handwoven skirt and headdress. "The idea is to trust each doll with whatever troubles you. It is said that during the night, while we sleep, the dolls will whisper the solution to our troubles," says Ana from the Lopez Garcia Family. The set of six arrives in a hand-loomed cotton pouch.

Legend has it that the Maya Sun God gave princess Ixmucané the gift of solving people's problems. With time people started making dolls in Ixmucané's honor and they would tell her their woes, hoping she would solve them through the dolls.

Please expect slight variations in color and size as each doll is crafted by hand with available materials, making each one unique.

I love these worry dolls. There were an excellent value and I am giving (some of them) as gifts to my closest friends during this horrendous virus pandemic. Definitely recommend them. They are quality and beautiful!

These charming Worry Doll ornaments are in such cheerful colors that they make me smile every time I see them on our Christmas tree. I think Im going to have to find some place to display them after we take down the tree.

"A mom s day gift"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The beautiful, precious Worry Dolls, caught my eyes and my heart! As a child, (I m now over 70!) I recall having a worry doll-although I no longer can describe it, and my little problems never became big! My daughter-in-law s mother is surviving cancer. So I hot glued little pins to the back of each one and also had a beaded necklace she can pin a doll too if her thoughts are overwhelming. It was a mom s day gift from her twin daughters. (+ myself) She was speechless! Thank you for the speedy transportation as received it within 3 days! The price took a great “worry” off my piggy bank and their beautiful colors and workmanship is beyond my expectations. Blessings to all the fingers that make these dolls! Priceless!

"Friends and Family"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am continuing a family tradition that my grandmother began when Ii was a young girl. I want each family to have a wreath and each of my grandchildren and grandnieces and grandnephews to have a worry doll or a Love and Hope set of Worry Dolls.. I am the oldest daughter in a family of nine children, and was able to spend more time with my grandmother, so I am the person who is most interested in continuing this tradition. Believe me, I need the help of coupons, because this is an expensive obsession!

I LOVE these little worry dolls! They are great as a decoration on a gift or just to give a friend who is going through a hard time. My granddaughters sleep with one under their pillows, to take their worries away.
