What is the history of peg dolls?
The tradition of making peg dolls out of wooden clothes pegs comes from a time when people had little money to spend on toys. When toymaking stopped during World War 2, children would make toys from items they found in and outside their homes. And wooden pegs became a favourite for kids to dress up with scrap fabrics and ornaments to make them look as real as possible.
What is this game?
Pegs and Cups is a montessori and Waldorf fave, an open-ended design that allows children to spend hours of imaginative play and be creative! They are perfect for child-directed play. They also build several skills along the way.
What is this game about?
Each of our six colourful Wooden Peg Dolls in this adorable set come in various shapes, nestled in a matching cup of the same color. Your little one would love exploring them while trying to place each of these peg dolls into their corresponding colour cup. The cups can also be stacked one on top of another. However there are so many more ways to play with our Peg Dolls family!
They're perfectly sized for little hands, and there are countless ways toddlers can engage with them in pretend or imgainative dramatic play for many years. These toys pack a conceptual punch- they will help your toddler to develop colour perception, coordination, spatial thinking, visual attention, fine motor skills, imagination, attention, memory and other skills. No wonder they are a montessori and Waldorf education fave !
