So-called Bogorodskaya toys were very popular in the Soviet years, today this craft is slowly dying mainly due to the efforts of Chinese fakers. Today it is almost impossible to buy a real toy like this even in Moscow, it is sold where it is produced – not far from a Russian city Sergiev Posad.

    Extremely nice crafting, and for sure this beat the chinese to as there is no substitute for a talented RUSSIAN craftswoman.(not even for a lower price)

    Hello there,
    I have been looking at you’re web site – And I’ve been very impressed with all the beautiful carving.
    I understand that “linden wood ” is mainly used in the bear toys .
    Is linden wood a soft wood similar to cedar?.
    Thank – you for you’re time ………. Wayne.
