Each doll comes with special powers to protect, bring good fortune or punish others. They make great gifts and stocking stuffers and can be used as key chains or hook to a purse or backpack.
What I didn't realize was the history and controversy surrounding these little dolls! There are a variety of companies selling them and all of them claim to be the original version.
If my internet research is to be believed the dolls apparently originated in Northern Thailand. These dolls are called Saan Ha dolls and there are a handful of companies that appear to distribute these same dolls including Charm Voodoo (North America), Voodoo Baby (North America) and Kamibashi (Canada). I need to do some more digging to confirm this information. If anyone has info to the contrary please let me know!
