Worry Dolls

Worry Dolls are a traditional friend in Guatemala.

These small dolls become your confidant.

Each night before you go to sleep, so the tradition goes, you confide all of your worries to your worry doll. The doll is then placed under your pillow. It is said that the worries are gone by the morning. 🙂

Although these are not toys, I would suggest that they are not suitable for children under the age of 8 years.

Guatemalan Worry Dolls

These dolls have been a part of Guatemalan traditional culture for a long time!

Guatemalans are taught to offload all of their worries to their Worry Doll before going to sleep. The doll is then placed under the pillow… and on waking, it is said, that the worries are gone!

Although these have been categorised, you could easily choose the ones you like best.


I love this tradition.

The idea of clearing your head before going to sleep is just lovely – and would make for a peaceful nights’ sleep.

That may be the secret – with a good nights’ sleep, everything is much more manageable… Or maybe these little dolls really do have special powers??


These dolls are made in Guatemala.
