Angela - You have arrived in Mexico. Congratulations! You have found the rag doll. It is dressed in local indigenous dress. In Mexico City, dolls called “Marías” are also made from cloth and dressed to imitate indigenous women. These often carry babies and are also adorned with ribbons and fringe/lace.(Wikipedia)

Next you are heading for China to find a hand-painted silk kite.

You have arrived in England. Congratulations! You have found the Jack-in-the-Box. A jack-in-the-box is a children's toy that outwardly consists of a box with a crank. When the crank is turned, it plays a melody, often "Pop Goes the Weasel". At the end of the tune there is a "surprise":[ the lid pops open and a figure, usually a clown or jester, pops out of the box. Some jack-in-the-boxes open at random times when cranked, making the startle even more effective.

You have collected all the toys for Santa’s sleigh so it’s time to bring them to the North Pole.

Walk for two hours to complete your journey. When you have completed this, you have finished the challenge. Thanks for helping the elves find lots of cool things to fill the sleigh!!

You have arrived in Japan. Congratulations! You have found the Menko cards. Menko is a Japanese card game played by two or more players. It is also the name of the type of cards used to play this game. Each player uses Menko cards made from thick paper or cardboard, with one or both side printed with images from anime, manga, etc. A player's card is placed on the hardwood or concrete floor and the other player throws down his card, trying to flip the other player's card with a gust of wind or by striking his card against the other card. If he succeeds, he takes both cards. The player who takes all the cards, or the one with the most cards at the game's end, wins the game. (Wikipedia)

Next you are heading to Mexico for a rag doll.

You have arrived in Russia. Congratulations! You have found the nesting dolls. The first Russian nested doll set was carved in 1890 by Vasily Zvyozdochkin from a design by Sergey Malyutin, who was a folk crafts painter at Abramtsevo. Traditionally the outer layer is a woman, dressed in a sarafan, a long and shapeless traditional Russian peasant jumper dress. The figures inside may be of either gender; the smallest, innermost doll is typically a baby turned from a single piece of wood. Much of the artistry is in the painting of each doll, which can be very elaborate. The dolls often follow a theme, aside from the typical traditional peasant girls, the themes vary, from fairy tale characters to Soviet leaders.

Next you are heading to England for a Jack-in-the-Box

Diane,

You have arrived in France. Congratulations! You have found the Etch a Sketch. It was designed by André Cassagnes of France, and later manufactured in Ohio. This mechanical sketching toy wasintroduced near the peak of the Baby Boom in 1960, and is one of the best known toys of that era. It was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame at The Strong in Rochester, New York in 1998. In 2003, the Toy Industry Association named Etch A Sketch to its Century of Toys List, a roll call commemoratingthe 100 most memorable and most creative toys of the 20th century (wikipedia).

Next you are heading to Japan for Menko cards.

You have arrived in England. Congratulations! You have found the Jack-in-the-Box. A jack-in-the-box is a children's toy that outwardly consists of a box with a crank. When the crank is turned, it plays a melody, often "Pop Goes the Weasel". At the end of the tune there is a "surprise":[ the lid pops open and a figure, usually a clown or jester, pops out of the box. Some jack-in-the-boxes open at random times when cranked, making the startle even more effective.

You have collected all the toys for Santa’s sleigh so it’s time to bring them to the North Pole.

Walk for two hours to complete your journey. When you have completed this, you have finished the challenge. Thanks for helping the elves find lots of cool things to fill the sleigh!!

Congratulations! You have found the kite. Kites were invented in China, where materials ideal for kite building were readily available: silk fabric for sail material; fine, high-tensile-strength silk for flying line; and resilient bamboo for a strong, lightweight framework.

Next you are heading to Russia for Nesting Dolls

I knew without taking the quiz that I was not a compulsive spender but it was good to confirm it. I have now completed the quiz and choose #3 - which I know is the goodie I'm looking for so I will get back to exercising!

You have arrived in Mexico. Congratulations! You have found the rag doll. It is dressed in local indigenous dress. In Mexico City, dolls called “Marías” are also made from cloth and dressed to imitate indigenous women. These often carry babies and are also adorned with ribbons and fringe/lace.(Wikipedia)

Next you are heading for China to find a hand-painted silk kite.

You have arrived in Russia. Congratulations! Your pick is the nesting dolls. The first Russian nested doll set was carved in 1890 by Vasily Zvyozdochkin from a design by Sergey Malyutin, who was a folk crafts painter at Abramtsevo. Traditionally the outer layer is a woman, dressed in a sarafan, a long and shapeless traditional Russian peasant jumper dress. The figures inside may be of either gender; the smallest, innermost doll is typically a baby turned from a single piece of wood. Much of the artistry is in the painting of each doll, which can be very elaborate. The dolls often follow a theme, aside from the typical traditional peasant girls, the themes vary, from fairy tale characters to Soviet leaders.

Next you are heading to England for a Jack-in-the-Box
