From wikipedia

Nutcracker dolls, also known as Christmas Nutcrackers, are decorative nutcracker figurines usually made to resemble a toy soldier. In the German tradition, the dolls are symbols of happiness that frighten evil spirits. Although almost all nutcrackers from before the first half of the 20th century are functional, a significant proportion of modern nutcrackers are mainly decorative and cannot crack nuts. Nutcrackers are also part of German folklore and serve as protectors of a house.
