About Nesting Dolls

What looks like one doll, suddenly becomes two, and before you know it, you have 10 sitting in front of you. The nesting dolls, which are native to the Russian culture, have been a popular toy and item for collectors since they were first invented in 1890 by Vasily Zvyozdochkin. Inspired by Japanese culture, the dolls have evolved to fit a variety of different themes. From Christmas to Easter, and every holiday in between, you can find a set of dolls to meet your needs. The dolls, which have extended from Russian culture and are now popular around the world, even display political figures and favorite animals. The dolls, called matryoshka dolls in Russian culture, serve as a metaphor and design paradigm. The vast inventory on eBay helps you find the set of new or vintage dolls that works best for your desires. No matter whether you want to showcase a unique piece of Christmas decor or if you want to symbolize a moment in time, nesting dolls can serve as the unique piece of art to do just that.
