All of our nesting dolls are authentic Russian nesting dolls. Every doll is handmade and painted in Russia. Nesting dolls are made out of lime wood and water-based paint. They are safe, fun and unique gift items. Three piece dolls are well suited as children’s gifts or party favors, or small tokens of appreciation for friends or relatives. They are also good as kitchen & home decorations when you need a unique but less conspicuous decoration for your home.
