Our new website

And on that front, yes we have our new website up and running. There are probably a few things not working at the moment so if you find one please tell us!

Our new website


As a thank you to all our loyal customers for being a part of the friendliest and most generous Matryoshka store, we have a gorgeous matryoshka to give away and a guarantee this year that the matryoshkas will be amazing!

We want all you matryoshka lovers to post a photo on our facebook page of your favourite matryoshka bought from Babushkas and how you like to showcase your set at home. The most liked photo will win a matryoshka set! So get your friends, family and your next door neighbour to like your photo on our page! Get ready with your camera and start posting!


Oops, our new webpage wasn’t quite ready. Old one is back until we have the new one ready to go.

Some website changes

You might have noticed a few small changes on our Website ( as we’ve started to rework it. The items now sort default from cheapest to most expensive. And we also now have new Internet only prices which initially are set at 20% below our shop prices. This reflects somewhat the different costs for us of the two forms of retailing but it is also something that we will refine over the next few months so this is just a starting point.

Make your own Matryoshka competition

The winning entries from our ‘Make Your Own Matryoshka’ Competition. Congratulations to Olivette, Ruby and Evelyn (it was too difficult to choose between the two sisters’ entries so they both scored a prize!) A creative use of papier mache and paint. And Olivette’s knitted set is very cute.

Blog problems

We realise some of the links are not working, hopefully we will have these fixed in the next few days.

A website update

We’ve added some more stock to our website from one of our favourite suppliers from Kirov in Russia. These are the dolls that have had a reduction in their price due to the Australian dollar and suppliers price reductions. These are a very popular line.

Here they are on our webpage

And here are some pictures of a few of the products from this company;
