Matryoshka Dolls – Don’t we all love them? With a variety of shapes and themes from fairy tales, religious, athletic icons and from wildlife to World leaders; the choices and possibilities are endless.
Kids love them and mine are not immune to their awesomeness. They are useful in educating young children about colors, sizes, shapes, stacking and unstacking into larger dolls.
Beside the vibrant colors and themes; I am fond of them mainly for what they represent: motherhood and fertility.
The gorgeous Matryoshka Nesting Doll in the middle was purchased at one of the Antique Stores in Downtown Pomona. Standing at 8″ tall and consisting of 9 pieces, it is one of my favorite acquisitions.
Being a Vintage lover and having spent at least six years in Pomona, CA; I can assure you that the Antique Row is the place to shop for everything Antique (paintings, furniture, books, toys, clothing, Silverware, tools and much more). I own a few sets, some of which I will be giving away to my readers.
