Details

Crafted by members of the Lopez Garcia Family of Guatemala, this set of six quitapenas dolls makes 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 three male and three female worry dolls each clasping a red heart to his or her chest and comes with a pouch made from loom-woven cotton. Handmade using tule wood, polyurethane, nylon stockings, kraft paper, and 100% cotton fabric, the dolls are dressed in vividly-colored traditional Guatemalan attire.

"Adorable Worry Dolls"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The Joined in Love worry dolls are colorful and well made. They are the best Worry Dolls I have ever seen. I like their larger size because you can actually see the faces. The Lopez Garcia Family has taken great care to make these. Even the back side of them is finished extremely well. I have already ordered the coin purse with a doll on it and will definitely be purchasing even more of their products.

My grandmother collected these Worry Dolls for me when I was a child. She would be pleased that I am continuing the tradition with her great grandchildren whom she did not have the opportunity to know. I am so pleased that they are available through Novica.

"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!
