What's a Worry Doll?

Worry dolls are very small, colorful dolls traditionally made in Guatemala. They are given to a person, usually a child, who cannot sleep due to worrying. It is said that the person can tell all of their worries to the doll and then place it under their pillow and the doll will worry in their place, allowing them to sleep soundly.

I first learned how to make these larger wooden "worry dolls" when I was about eight years old, and I still love making them just as much now as I did when I was a little girl. Whether placed under your pillow, on your tree, in a frame, or anywhere else, I hope they bring a smile to your face.
