Nesting Dolls Galore

November 6, 2009 Katja Presnal

Russian nesting dolls, Matryoshkas, are the most famous Russian souvenirs. I shared a shelf full of souvenier Matryoshkas with my sisters when growing up, and seeing the nesting dolls be such a big trend now brings back childhood memories.

We have a nesting doll store close by, a huge pink house full of Matryoshkas directly from Russia, and I took kids there one day for shopping. I was surprised that some of the nesting doll sets were over 500 dollars, and also the availability of every cartoon character and celebrity on earth as a nesting doll. I like the folk lore look of the traditional dolls, but I think I might have hard time fitting them in our home. But nesting doll prints have been so popular in the past couple of years, and still going strong that I wanted to look for some cute modern nesting doll products that I like.

I really like the set of three candles would be nice even for the Holidays. The nesting dolls pillows by Thomas Paul run around 70-80 dollars and would fit in modern home. I love the nesting Doll accessories by Beaky from England, and Enna’s nesting doll wall decals are cute too, both from Etsy. Etsy has a great selection of cute nesting doll products.

    I’m wanting to do my nursery in nesting dolls…any good websites/stores I should look into? I’m having a hard time finding things around town and I”m sure I’m going to have to go to the internet for most things.
