Details

Crafted by members of the Lopez Garcia Family of Guatemala, these quitapenas dolls make a wonderful gift for friends or family that tells the recipient you care about their well-being and wish them the best. Quitapenas means "to remove worries" in Spanish; artisan Aura Lopez explains the Mayan worry doll tradition. "My grandparents said that the way to use them was to take the doll out of the bag or wooden box and tell it your problems and fears," she states. "Then, you place the doll under your pillow and, the next day, your problem becomes smaller or can be resolved." The set consists of two pairs of male and female worry dolls joined together by a red heart. Handmade, the dolls are dressed in vividly-colored traditional Guatemalan attire and arrive in a pouch of handwoven cotton fabric.

"A perfect gift to share with a friend you love."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have ordered a number of worry dolls from the Lopez Garcia Family and have found that they make the cutest, most individual looking worry dolls I have ever seen. These adorable Love and Hope doll pairs are so sweet. I gave one pair to a dear friend of mine and he loved them, as do I. A nice way to share some love and hope with someone.

"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!
