Matryoshka is an old Russian toy, and mushrooms are a symbol of the dense forests of central Russia, Siberia and the Urals. Raduga Grez have beautifully combined the two images and got this set, simple and full of surprises, like childhood itself.
You can hide feathers, large beads, chestnuts and sea pebbles in the parts of a set or use them as bowls to feed teddy-bears and dolls. When unfolded, matryoshka looks like toy mushrooms – you can hide them in the nursery, and then collect them in a basket. You can play in a family where the biggest matryoshka is mum or dad, and the smallest one is the youngest child.
Children love opening and closing nesting dolls, arranging them by height, and are delighted to see that a large thing hides many small ones. But traditional Russian matryoshkas are not kids-friendly enough – the wood is rough and closes too tightly.
