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
Yellow Submarine Nesting Dolls
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
Matryoshka Madness Ninja Nesting Dolls
Cat Nesting Dolls
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.
