Who doesn’t love them? While the modern day nesting doll is most popularly associated with Russia (Matryoshka) or Poland (Babushka), the first nesting dolls actually came from China.  The Chinese crafted nesting boxes that date back to the Song Dynasty, around 1000 AD. These boxes were both functional and decorative. Sometime during the 1700s they applied this concept to a set of dolls and the first nesting doll was born.
