These handmade Guatamala worry dolls come in a variety of different styles and genders wearing Mayan style clothing. The size of the doll can vary between ½ inch and 2 inches tall. In traditional and modern times, worry dolls are given or lent to brooding, anxious or sorrowful children. They would tell their doll about their sorrows, fears and worries, then hide it under their pillow before going to sleep at night. It is said that the child relinquishes their worries to the dolls during the night and by the next morning, all sorrows are said to have been taken away by the worry doll and they can move forward refreshed the next day. The dolls are quite popular since they are so small and thus easy to carry around.
These are chosen at random when purchased online and come in a pack of 3.
