Gift Guide: Monster Matryoshkas

Matryoshkas are traditional Russian nesting dolls. You know, a big wooden capsule with an oft-ugly face painted on it, that spews forth progressively smaller capsules. When I was little my grandmother brought me back one from a trip, and I was always uneasy with the ugly mug and blank expression painted on it. These Monster Matryoshkas, however, put me oddly at ease... but why is the little one a penguin?
