The Legend of the Worry Doll
The Legend of the Worry Doll is based on a Guatemalan tale that has been passed down through generations. The story is about a Maya goddess that presented tiny dolls wrapped in colorful threads and fabric to help people address their stress and anxiety. People were instructed to share their fears and secrets with the dolls and then place them under their pillows when they slept. The legend maintains that by doing this the dolls will take on those burdens during the night, allowing the person to sleep trouble free. Children all over the world have found comfort in the legend of the worry doll and the act of whispering their fears to the little dolls.
