The two dolls are called Akua'ba and are traditionally made by the Ashanti from Ghana (and adjacent area). Your examples are made for the market (for sale to tourists etc) and the arms are almost completely missing (a bit of a fantasy item based on the real thing).
The Other item is a Yoruba (nigera) maternity figure in Fakeye style.. but a fake.
