All About Russian Dolls
To many people, Russian dolls are a souvenir from a foreign land; something to place in a cabinet as a decorative piece and this is a wonderful way to preserve a corner of Russia in your home, but in reality their purpose in life is to charm, to enlighten, to educate and to amaze.
Even today, there are teachers in Russia who use Matryoshka Russian dolls as a learning aid. If you have ever sat and watched a young child patiently trying to put all the pieces of the Russian dolls together, you will understand how something so simple can captivate and enthral.
This website is dedicated to Matryoshka, the little wooden doll that for over 100 years has been a symbol of nature, motherhood and the everlasting circle of life. Many of the dolls on this site are unique, some of them unusual, but all of them with their own characters and charm.
We hope that you will share our journey and enjoy these little treasures.
