My name’s Penny. I’m the creator behind Peggy’s peg dolls and things.


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 inclusive toys for my toddler, that truly represent diversity in all its wonderful guises. So, I started to paint. With your help, Peggy Dollface dolls and flash cards can inspire and empower kids as they play.

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 educational peg dolls and flash cards, alongside custom family portraits, portraits of pets, cake toppers and celebrations of PRIDE – these are heirloom artworks and toys that promote all the wonderful diversity of love and life.

A Note: 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.
