There is a Mayan legend that states that when a person is worried and owing to those worries can’t sleep well, they should express their worries to a worry doll. The worry doll will worry on the persons behalf, this allowing them to have a good nights sleep.
All our worry dolls are hand made in Guatemala by Women’s co-operatives and small artisan groups. The money they earn from these handicrafts is very important to improving the quality of life they enjoy in their villages.
Hammock Heaven stock a huge range of worry dolls including; large worry dolls in a textile bag; large worry dolls in a traditional yellow wooden box; small worry dolls in either a textile bag or box; individual worry dolls; worry doll bookmarks; worry doll notebooks and much more. Apart from the notebooks and bookmarks all worry dolls come with a printed copy of the worry doll legend.
Worry dolls make great gifts for both children and adults who may be experiencing a tough time, stress or some sickness. Worry dolls make a very sweet and thoughtful gift for someone who is under pressure for exams or work, or also someone having a stay in hospital.
