Nesting dolls are the best known and most popular of all Russian souvenirs. The Russian word for these wooden dolls is "matryoshka", but they are also called matrioshka, matryoshkas, babushka dolls, babushka's doll, matroshka, matryushka, and stacking dolls. Whatever you want to call them, nesting dolls have a fascinating history, and they are the classic Russian gift. Our nesting dolls are carefully handcrafted.
The most traditional nesting doll design is one that looks like a young Russian woman dressed in Russian native costume with a scarf on her head. In the traditional nesting doll sets all of the dolls look almost identical to one another, and the number of dolls in the set ranges from 5 to 30, but some custom-made sets contain many more. In other cases, the set forms a theme, such as the classic sets of nesting dolls of Russian leaders, with each earlier leader nested inside.
Our online store has over 1000 different styles of nesting dolls, ranging from the most traditional, to the latest political, entertainment, and sports figures. To help you find the nesting doll that's right for your occasion, we've organized them by theme
