About Worry Dolls
An old story tells that when the Mayan Indians had worries, they would tell them to the worry people. At night they would place the worry people under their pillows and when they awoke, the worry people had taken their worries away.

This handmade product has been made by the Maya Indians who live in the highlands of Guatemala. They make their living from agriculture in the rural areas of the country and are often dependent on alternative forms of income.

Size: Each doll is roughly 5.5 cm tall. The set comes with a brightly woven cotton bag (various colours available) which are approximately 12 cm x 10cm.

Extra Information: These sets are ethically sourced

    All have their own character

    I received my worry dolls last week. They are lovely, all have their own character. I have given some to people who I think will benefit from them. I will use mine whenever I have a problem. I am sure they will help.

    This little sachet of worry dolls is adorable. Well-presented. colorful and detailed craftmanship. I bought it for my goddaughter whose parents are going through a divorce and it is a perfect and playful way to have her express her anxiety, while making her feel safe. Highly recommend.
