The Children of the World Peg Dolls
These handmade wooden peg dolls by Goose Grease not only encourage cultural inclusion, they support creativity, literacy and emotional development, too. During imaginative play, children create stories for their dolls and can combine them with blocks and open-ended materials as their tale takes off. You can also use these little dolls to support kiddo during new transitions—back to school, sleepovers, camp. Tuck a peg doll into their backpack to offer a comforting reminder that you’re thinking of them.
