Our Favourite part of our work here at Doli Dwt is creating Unique, PERSONaliseD Peg Dolls tailored to your specifications.
Are you looking for something special for that person who has everything? Our personalised peg dolls make a truly unforgettable gift! Have a look what some of our previous customers have said on our feedback page here.
Our customised, personalised peg dolls are the absolute perfect gift when only something totally unique will fit the bill. Working from pictures provided by you, we can create little dolls with clothes and hairstyles that make them resemble your loved ones and best friends.
Our peg dolls are a bit different to other lovely, painted Peg Dolls you may have seen.
The details you see are added to my little people using the art of pyrography. This is the art of burning decorative marks into wood with a hot iron tool. I have been using this technique since 2015 and it sets my work apart from other peg doll artists.
You can see lots of examples me working with pyrography in action on my YouTube Channel!
Attention to detail is paramount to me, so I colour them with the best, highly pigmented and light-fast pencils. These combine with the beautiful natural grain of the wood, producing a soft, tactile appearance that you just want to touch. I love the appearance and feel of wood grain, so prefer enhancing this with pencil over covering it with paint. However, sometimes a doll calls for combining the coloured pencils with acrylic or water colour paint. I always chose the best medium to meet the brief, recreating the peg dolls outfits as faithfully as possible.
Finally, I finish each doll by adding several layers of a non-toxic sealant. This ensures the wooden version of you stands the test of time!
2020 Price List:
Our 9cm personalised dolls (the “adult” size) are £25 each.
the PRiceS of the most popular configurations of our little customised peg dolls families are as follows:

Standard Couple: £50
Wedding Couple: £65

This may strike you as a bit more expensive than other “painted” peg dolls you may have seen elsewhere. That’s because my peg dolls are NOT painted – they are so much more! This article might help to explain further!
Of course, if you want to add Granny and Grandad to your set, our peg doll families are fully customisable. Or do you need to include a dog or favourite teddy bear?! Maybe you have an army of children that you need to have made? Do you know a crazy cat lady with two or three cats?
In fact, anything is possible with a custom, personalised peg doll order!
Additional adult, children and pet peg dolls are available for an additional cost. Simply get in touch with your custom arrangements. We are of course always happy to discuss your needs and give you a personalised quote for your individual peg doll configuration.
OUR PERSONALISED PEG DOLLS ARE INTENDED AS BEAUTIFUL KEEPSAKES. THEY ARE FOR DECORATIVE PURPOSES ONLY. They are to be treated as collectors items, for ages fourteen and over only.
ALTHOUGH NON TOXIC MATERIALS ARE USED on our products, THEY SHOULD NEVER BE PLACED IN LITTLE MOUTHS – AS TEMPTING AS THAT IS! PLEASE DON’T EAT THEM – OR GIVE THEM TO SMALL CHILDREN TO PLAY WITH!
