One of My Most Cherished Childhood Memories

Here's a review from OnSugar blog Little Wooden Elephant.

When I was little, and I used to go to my Grandmother's house to visit, and if I was good she used to get out her Russian Dolls for me to play with. I used to get so excited when my Grandmother reached for the Russian Dolls on the top shelf of her cupboard, and placed them in front of me on the lounge room floor! I would ever so carefully pull the big one apart, to reveal a slightly smaller one inside, and so on.  Then I would stand all of the dolls in a row on the carpet, big to small. It was when I got to the second smallest one that my grandmother would say to me "be very very careful with the small one at the end!  It is very special and we don't want  to lose it!"  So I would very gently open the second last doll which was very, very small, and roll the smallest doll into my hand.  It was so tiny!!  And so, so precious!  Playing with these Russian Dolls is one of my favorite childhood memories... The first Russian Nesting Doll was made in 1890, and children still love playing with them today.  They are a lovely, timeless toy. I was very excited when I found this set of 5 beautifully hand painted Russian Nesting Dolls at the gorgeous store Happy Little Hippos.  Have a look for yourself!

I love Russian Nesting Dolls. We have a lovely set that was a gift to hubby from a client years ago.
