What’s On Our World Peace Shelf — Multicultural Nesting Dolls

To read about why I started this series, check out What’s On Our Most Important Shelf?.

I stumbled upon these Multicultural Nesting Dolls and I knew they would be the perfect addition to our World Peace Shelf!  Unfortunately, this is a vintage set and I haven’t been able to find them on sale anywhere else.  If you are crafty, you can make your own using this set.

L is obsessed with this work.  She pulls it out probably 5 times a day.  She loves talking about the different dolls (especially their hair), and it’s nice to be able to have this out as a simple illustration of the different skin colors that exist in the world.

Nesting dolls are also great for building hand strength and size discrimination skills.

“The child, making use of all that he finds around him, shapes himself for the future.”  ~Maria Montessori
