Just as in America and Germany, Russia cherishes the Nutcracker Ballet. Clara's beloved Nutcracker Prince bravely stands guard over this festive nesting doll, based on the Tchaikovsky ballet and Hoffman's fairy tale. The outermost doll features the Nutcracker himself, followed by a scene showing Clara cherishing her beloved new toy. Herr Drosselmeier is shown next, and then we see Clara and her Prince come to life! The Mouse King makes his appearance on the smallest doll. Colorful and fun, this nesting doll is sure to be a holiday favorite!
