Counting Toys and Chimes

A sub-category of matryoshka collecting is the counting toy, which is usually many small pieces inside a larger doll, used to encourage children to learn to count and play. Sometimes the dolls become more elaborate and leave the playground and take on a life of their own.

Chimes fall into the category of bells or roly-polys. The Russian term for these dolls is Неваляшка (Nevalyashka), which means "won't lie down". These dolls can tilt and spin. 

We come across banks on occasion. They can either open, or be unopenable. Many of these novelties come from Semenov, Krutets and Sergiev Posad.
