From Guatemala, tiny dolls made of wire, scraps of fabric, and string. The story is that if you tell a wish to one of them before you go to bed, and then put it under your pillow, the trouble doll will get up while you're sleeping and put everything right.

The trouble i told them most often when i was a small child was that no one took me seriously when i said i didn't like eggs. In retrospect, i guess they came up with a solution, just not overnight.
