These pretty dolls make perfect gifts

Cozy up to a cheery handmade Matryoshka doll from Vancouver’s own Little Red Caboose. These cute and cuddly modern-day versions of the traditional nesting doll may not be filled with miniatures, but they are stuffed with 100% lambswool, making them the perfect couch companion. They are available in a variety of colours and patterns, producing endless possibilities. Find your perfect match at the One of a Kind Show and Sale (Oct. 8 to 11) or shop online at littleredcaboose.etsy.com. Who says kids get to have all the fun—and all the toys?
