BBC - h2g2 - Worry Dolls (695 words)
When a child is worried or frightened, their parents present them with a bag, or sometimes a tiny colourfully painted wooden box, of six Worry Dolls.
The child is given one doll each night for six nights and instructed to tell their worries to the doll, place the doll under their pillow and go to sleep.
Worry Dolls can be particularly useful in easing the troubles of hospitalised children - especially those awaiting surgery or having oncology treatments.
