This lovely set of 7 Matryoshka Nesting Dolls are based on the very traditional Russian Matryoshka dolls but with a colourful make-over.
Each doll easily pulls apart so that a smaller doll can hop inside. Children love taking them apart and putting the dolls into each other, as well as using the dolls as play figures.
While traditional Russian dolls have ornate decorations, these nesting dolls have no painted expressions or details, so it is up to the child to decide which character each one will be - a non-prescriptive approach to play that suits Montessori and Waldorf settings.
Once together, this beautiful set becomes a compact toy that's perfect for travelling with.
Measurements: the height of the largest doll is 11cm, the height of the smallest doll is 1.3cm. There are 7 pieces in each set.
Material: Linden wood with natural certified German wax and oil for children's toys (Biofa).
Age Guide & Safety: 3 years+. Not suitable for children 3 years and over who still have a tendency to put things in their mouth as the smallest dolls can be a potential choking hazard.
