A very exciting new addition to our online shop today... Introducing Mermaid Peepul!
These have been a long time in the planning so it's lovely to finally be able to share them and make them available. You can choose to buy the Mermaid or the Merman at £10 each, or buy both together for £18.
Here they are with toys by Grimm's and Black's Toys, along with some of our favourite shells and stones picked up on visits to the beach.
This week I had a very exciting delivery - exciting for a peg-doll-painting geek, anyway. A set of superfine and eye-wateringly expensive miniature paint brushes, all the way from Buffalo, NY. I've been waiting a while for them so I couldn't wait to put them to good use - and this custom order was absolutely perfect for them.
The request was for a set of four peg dolls featuring the flags of four different countries - Serbia, Montenegro, the UK and the US. None of the flags are particularly simple in their design so I was nervous about how good a Job I'd be able to do. But I'm pretty happy with them. Especially the stripes on the US flag - all painted freehand. The brushes are amazing!
You can buy Flag Peepul with any national flag of your choice from our online shop now!
After lots of feedback from our lovely followers on Instagram and Facebook, we've started adding more individual 'job' based Peepul to the shop. And we've started with some traditional shopkeepers, which are lovely for small world play and role play. Our little boy, George, keeps picking them up and saying 'He's going to make bread. He's going to make apples. And she's going to make bacon!'
You can buy individual Baker, Greengrocer and Butcher Peepul from the shop now, on their own or as part of a money-saving bundle of two, three or four different Peepul from our range of individual characters.
