Homewares & gifts - worry dolls

Worry dolls are handmade dolls that have originated from Central America, mainly in Mexico and Guatemala.  Known as "munecas quitapenas" in Spanish, worry dolls come from the local legend of a Mayan princess who received a worry doll from the sun god to solve any problem she would ever be concerned about.
Tradition these days is to give a worry doll to a sad or worried child who could use the doll to funnel their concerns away and is used today in modern child psychiatry to help children who feel they need a listener or someone to talk to.
Worry dolls make a really cute present and also a useful tool for someone who tends to fear the worst. Browse our range of worry dolls and help someone give their worries away today!
