Celebrating diversity in…
Welcome to Peggy Dollface! I’m Penny, the creator behind Peggy’s empowering and diverse handmade wooden toys, flash cards, jewellery, décor and artworks.
What began as child-friendly, hand-painted peg dolls, to promote inclusive play in my toddler, has grown into a range for adults and kids alike – with peg dolls and flash cards featuring inspirational leaders from social history alongside custom family portraits, portraits of pets, celebrations of PRIDE, home décor, wooden jewellery and even heirloom nesting dolls – these are artworks and toys that promote all the wonderful diversity of love and life.
I am glad to have found a way to help other parents who are looking to raise compassionate and informed kids. The idea began when I was struggling to find multicultural and inclusive toys for my toddler, Luca-Ray, that truly represent diversity in all its wonderful guises. So, I started to paint. With your help, Peggy Dollface dolls and flash cards bring social history to life, so kids learn and are inspired and empowered as they play.
As Luca and I started to read the amazing Little People, Big Dreams books by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara, I was inspired to bring her stories to life on wooden peg dolls. Now, the DREAM BIG collection includes social history icons like Frida Kahlo, Amelia Earhart, Amanda Gorman, Greta Thunberg, Martin Luther King, Jr, David Bowie… the list goes on and is ever-growing and evolving.
What I love, more than anything, is a new creative challenge – so let me know who your inspirations are and I’ll get the brushes out.
All my creations are hand-painted to order and presented in gorgeous reusable and recyclable packaging. The wooden toys are tested to the highest CE and UKCA safety standards.
