This review is from: 5.75" Set of 5 Blank Unpainted Wooden Russian Nesting Dolls (Toy)
I just received this order in a very timely manner. This is my first set of unpainted dolls to work with so I have nothing to compare them to, but they seem very well made; no cracks or thin areas or unreasonable stains. There is sawdust on them and they smell wonderful so it seems like they had just been made before they were shipped. If there are problems with the make and workmanship of the dolls when I begin to work with them I will adjust this comment accordingly. Otherwise a very nice product and I recommend BestPysanky.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid quality dolls for crafting, do remember to use a primer if you're painting, December 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got two sets of these for use in an art project, and I'm a pretty big fan of them. The wood is smooth and pleasant to the touch, all the dolls fit nicely, and though the first couple of times opening them required a little twisting back and forth they stayed open without being loose after that. All the dolls sit steadily when set out in a row. The littlest one is very light, so if you're putting it somewhere it will be jostled a lot tape it down.

Definitely prep the dolls with a little modge podge or primer before you paint. The wood drinks paint in if you don't.

I did run a rough piece of cloth around the inside and bottom to remove a tiny amount of loose wood shavings. It didn't seem to harm the wood.

Also, two of the dolls in one set had knots in their finish. It didn't affect the texture and I could easily paint over them, but if you're just staining as opposed to painting you should plan for that. The other set had no knots at all. I'm guessing... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Best buy for your money, October 18, 2016

Really great product and worth the price. Purchased 4 of these and every one came in great condition! Even unpainted they still look beautiful and are very smooth! Some pieces did fit more snug but a little hand sanding seems to work just fine. We did find that using a base coat before painting helped because they really absorb the paint. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and would love to buy again! I would be careful handling though as the wood is a bit on the thinner side and could easily break if you aren't careful!
