The worldwide phenomenon, known as a nesting doll, has been making everybody happy for over a hundred years with its bright colors. The fairy tale about Riaba the Hen appeared even earlier. Riaba the Hen is one of the first stories that Russian parents read to their children. This fantastic story is also present in the Baltic folklore, as well as among the Tajiks, the Kalmyks, the Abkhazians, the Turks, the Romanians, the Hungarians, and even the residents of Sardinia. This beautiful Russian nesting doll is not just a souvenir, but also an amazing toy developing a child's imagination, speech and fine motor skills!
