Matryoshka is a surprise game that absolutely fascinates children.
Matryoshka Acorn can be opened and closed easily by children, arranged according to size. In each half: you can hide feathers, large beads, loose parts and other treasures. You can put the halves one on top of another, hide them inside each other or build a tower. You can place the acorns around the room, give a basket to a child and collect them together to make a picnic for the squirrels.
Children love opening and closing nesting dolls, arranging them by height, and are delighted to see that a large thing hides many small ones. But traditional Russian matryoshkas are not really 'kid-friendly' – the wood tends to be rough and closes too tightly.
Matryoshka Acorn is made by lathe method – a round billet is put on a rotating machine and the wood working artisan uses a sharp knife to give the desired shape to the wood. This is an old technique and very few people practice it. Therefore, the number of toys is limited. But thanks to the craftmanship, the parts of these matryoshka acorns are perfectly smooth and easy to open and close.
