Warning: Nesting dolls with small parts present a choking hazard. The primary safety concern with nesting dolls is that many of them contain small parts that might cause an infant to choke. Therefore, very few nesting dolls are appropriate for children 3 years of age, or younger. Please do not let your children put nesting dolls into their mouths!

CSPIA: Child Friendly
Small parts, not children under 3 years.
When a great white oak gifts an old man a branch imbued with magic, he carves five wooden matryoshka dolls, "each smaller than the last." The wooden dolls take on a life of their own as they frolic from one season to the next, bringing the old man and his wife a joy they had always longed for. Beautiful verse and stunning, traditional illustrations full of woodland creatures and playfully painted matryoshka dolls explore a tale of heartache, hope, and love. The accompanying matryoshka doll set allows your child to act out the story as you read or create new adventures. Book and doll also sold separately.
