~ Worry Doll ~
According to legend in Guatemala, worry dolls have the ability to remove worries from sleeping children. Children tell one worry to each doll when they go to bed at night and place the dolls under their pillow. By morning the dolls have gifted them with the wisdom and knowledge to eliminate their worries. A local legend about the origin of the Worry Dolls refers to a Mayan princess named Ixmucane. The princess received a special gift from the sun god which would allow her to solve any problem a human could worry about.
