Trouble dolls

Trouble dolls are little dolls that come in a little wood box. I think they are from South America but not exaclty sure. I had a box my mother gave me when I was small. I asked every single doll every single night to take my diabetes away. Now over 3 decades later it has not happened yet. Where is that cure I was told when I was 5 would be around in about 5 years?

It's stuck in bureaucracy and red tape...

I've never heard of trouble dolls before, but they sound like a nice idea. I have been known to whisper a trouble or two into a dog's ear..
