Thousands of Russian nesting dolls -- called 'matryoshkas' -- line every available surface of Babushkas. ('Babushka' is the Russian word for 'grandmother', so now you won't get confused. You can choose from the tinest of dolls to ones as big as a real-life doll, with prices according. All are hand-painted in Russia, possibly even by doting babushkas.
