"Family Tradition"

A tradition that began with my Grandmother. Her church supported these missions, and she passed the significance of the Worry Doll message to me: Place a Worry Doll under your pillow when you go to bed at night and give her your worries!. Now, my granddaughters are receiving Worry Dolls, and I share the legend with them. Barbara

"World Traveler"

This set is the best!!! When we do house swaps, it really looks as though I am a world traveler. I have decorated an entire shelf with the set of boxes and worry dolls along with one of Novicas worry doll mirrors. Together the boxes and dolls and the mirror look just beautiful!!!

"Perfect gifts for friends/family who are sick or experiencing difficulties."

These charming hand made dolls each hold a heart to accept things that the receiver is troubled by. This allows them to get much needed sleep and healing relief by turning each trouble over to one doll who clearly has a BIG HEART.

Best Uses

  • Relief from worring so much
