I LOVE these special-edition matryoshkas that are coming out as Russia gears up for the Olympics... Going to to have to pick one... Must say that the skier is right now my favorite, especially since my family has tickets for the Men's Alpine Skiing Downhill Finals (Medal Event). All of these dolls are being sold through the official Sochi Olympic site.
Matryoshkas are popping up everywhere as a symbol, too... They're in porcelain, wood and on toys, etc. One of the villages for the athletes (where the downhill skiers will be) is all decorated with Russian kitsch including matryoshkas, too.
Below is a magnet version of another favorite, also on the website.
