The Story Behind It

Guatemalan Worry Dolls

The Tiny Doll that Takes Troubles Away

According to legend, the Guatemalan worry doll has the ability to remove worries from sleeping children. If a child speaks their worry to the doll and places the doll under their pillow or bed when they go to sleep, in the morning, the dolls will have taken their worries away.

Traditionally very colorful and small, worry dolls are handmade figures dressed in the bright textiles and vivid patterns of the traditional Guatemalan highlands. We're enamored by the rich history and compelling folklore behind Guatemalan worry dolls. These beautifully handcrafted items make sweet gifts and great accents to any room in your house.
