This matryoshka illustrates the beloved fairytale of Masha and the Bear. A young girl may not seem to have a chance after becoming lost in the woods and caught by a bear, but this story of "brains over brawn" shows how even a little girl can overcome a mighty bear. In the story, she cleverly tricks him into carrying her back to her grandparents in a backpack full of pancakes. This set comes with the big bear, grandmother, grandfather, and a tiny birch bark basket in which the last piece, wee little Masha, rides. Made of 100% linden wood. Bear measures 6 inches tall.
Handmade in Russia.
