33 Russian Doll Innovations

From Fairytale Fusion Containers to Pop Culture Matryoshkas

— December 14, 2011 — Life-Stages
These Russian Doll Innovations show how the legendary dolls are still strongly present in peoples' mind after more than a hundred years of existence. These nesting dolls, or Matryoshka dolls as they are originally called in Russian, are not only adorable, but they are also full of surprises.

Usually made of wood, these hollow dolls have the quality to fit inside one another. There are usually three dolls of three different sizes: one goes inside the other and the last doll is the biggest one. They're all painted with beautiful designs that resemble those of a traditional Russian peasant jumper dress. Now these figures are made of different material and are decorated with different themes like fairy-tales and pop culture icons.

Check out these Russian Doll innovations, which will remind collectors and readers why these dolls are so unique and playful.
