Focus on Safety

A traditional Russian folk tale of cooperation and a favorite story-telling motif in children's books. A farmer wants to pull a turnip out of his frozen garden so he can make soup. Try as he might, he can't do so. He calls his wife for help and they pull together, but also fail. In turn, the daughter, the dog and the cat are called in to help. None of their efforts succeed until the mouse (charmingly shown on the largest doll) pitches in. Handpainted and handlathed Russian nesting doll set. Three and a half inches tall.

Price: $25.00

Please note: These are not cheap Chinese copies of traditional Russian matryoshkas: poorly painted and made of uncured wood (which quickly warps or splits). In every way, these are authentic Russian nesting dolls.
