Outlet! Was $3.95!

Let your worries dissolve away as you sleep soundly -- whether you're in bed or curled up on a rug in front of the fireplace -- with our traditional Guatemalan worry dolls. Made in the image of the beloved canine, they're a lovely way to help ease a troubled mind.

According to the Mayan people of Guatemala, dogs with night vision help guide the souls of people on their journey to the underworld. The Maya also traditionally share their worries with the worry people, placing worry dolls under their pillows at bedtime. During the night the worry people whisk all their cares away. Try it and you'll wake up carefree – all your worries gone!

  • 100% cotton
  • In traditional textile bag with a small story card
  • 3" H x 2" W (7.6 x 5.1 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Guatemala

Dolls vary in color and design; please let us choose for you.

March 13, 2015 - These worry dogs are so cute, I bought myself 2 of them.

January 8, 2015 - Love these. I bought 3 for my daughter, her boyfriend and roommate. I heard of worry DOLLS but as a lover of the furry babies, LOVE the worry dogs

October 9, 2014 - I have worriers who love dogs. This little guy is a nice little add on to a birthday present.

January 18, 2014 - Beautifully made, whimsical, and exquisitely detailed. I love the fact that it is handmade and fairly purchased and supports local artisans, a win-win situation. My family adores gifts from this site.

January 2, 2014 - great gift -- a worrier on my list was the ideal receiver.

Artisan: Doña Jerónima Juárez

Artisan Doña Jerónima Juárez

Doña Jerónima Juárez was born in the small village of San Pedro Las Huertas, near Antigua, Guatemala. She stopped attending school after the third grade in order to supplement her family's income by helping her mother sell vegetables in the marketplace.

Doña Jerónima's mother taught her to make worry dolls, a traditional craft in Guatemala. She recalls, "I was trying for 2 months to make the worry dolls; I made one but was not good enough then I undid the dolls and tried again and again and again lots of times."

Her perseverance paid off. Eleven years ago, she was able to found a small workshop, "Artesanias Multicolor," in the Colonial City of La Antigua Guatemala. She is able to employ fifteen artisans in the production of traditional and not-so-traditional handicrafts, including the "Worry Cats," a design she developed exclusively for the Greater Good Network.

With their livelihood no longer tied solely to the agricultural harvest, Doña Jerónima, her mother, and her three daughters continue to turn their traditional crafting skills towards the creation of new and unique designs.
