It is about national traditionds..there are a lot of traditions kazakh people have and one of well known is “Toibastar” -
to give some presents to guests at Toi (mostly it is wedding).
These beatiful dolls are full of sweets and little presents to take away and then to remember about this event.

Kazakhstan’s many peoples speak many tongues – Russian, Uzbek, Kyrgyz, Uyghur and Tatar, among others – but after decades of suppression in the Soviet days, the country’s mother tongue, the Kazakh language, is still working to reestablish itself across the steppe.
While Kazakh is now the state language, Russian is a language “officially used along with Kazakh in state institutions and local self-government bodies,” according to the country’s Constitution, and is still widely used in urban centers and for business and politics. But Kazakh looks to be making a comeback, supported by government policies and an enthusiasm among many Kazakhs to ensure that the language of their ancestors thrives.
