If there is one moment in my life that sticks out it was when I was a very small boy and went to my Aunts house (She wasn’t really my Aunt, but that is what I was told to call her) and she showed me something so wonderful it turned my little nerd World upside down. What she showed me had many names: Nesting Dolls, Matryoshka Dolls, stacking dolls, but it doesn’t matter what they are called, that day they blew me away. But it seems I may have underestimated these “dolls” as something past generations played with, so maybe it is time for me to relive that moment as I take a look at ten of the craziest and most unusual Matryoshka dolls from around the world…
Avengers Nesting Dolls
It was one of the biggest films of 2012 and one of my favourites, so it should come as no surprise to find these amazing ‘Avengers Assemble’ dolls in this top 10. But it has to be said they are amazing for sure (if a little expensive).
Matryoshka Madness Dolls
Toxic, fun and very vivid! Those are just a few words that perfectly describe these nesting dolls, and a whole set of them for a tenner is a great bargain as well.
Yellow Submarine Nesting Dolls
There are not many submarines that only have a crew of just four people, but this is one of them. It is, of course, the World famous “Yellow Submarine” piloted by the four Beatles.
Star Wars: Wookies Chubby Nesting Dolls
A Wookiee’s natural habitat was the dense forests of the planet Kashyyyk. So it would make sense that they would be right at home in the forest of Russia and then turned into inspired nesting dolls. …what do you mean that makes no sense at all?!? It did to me!
Matryoshka Madness Pink Pig Nesting Dolls
One of the more unusual ones you will ever see is this amazing pig, stacker. If you love pigs these will stack up nicely on your mantlepiece.
Matryoshka Madness Ninja Nesting Dolls
I have always wanted to be a Ninja or was it a Power Ranger?!? Whatever it was I needed some truly epic martial arts skills to do it and sadly I don’t have them.
Cat Nesting Dolls
Don’t worry it is not Caturday already, but being a cat-loving nerd I did find this truly amazing and a perfect gift for any loving cat owner, or maybe just a fan of Caturday!
Ninja Turtles Nesting Dolls
For those too young to remember these they are The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and as a child growing up they were my heroes and with a brand new film due out this year they will be back on top of the toy charts and these will sell like hotcakes (or dolls).
Matryoshka Madness Nightmare-Zombie Nesting Dolls
Not only do I like most Zombie related items, but I also a good laugh and this ticked both boxes and it is not too expensive. So for all us Zombie fans out there, this might well rank right up there are the best Russian dolls you have ever seen!
Star Wars: Stormtrooper Nesting Dolls
It would have been a crime for this not to make it onto this list, because not only do they look simply amazing, but they are also cheap as chips! Normally nerd inspired merchandise costs the earth but this is highly affordable and that, in my opinion, makes this truly epic.
