Little Red Dolls

June 20, 2013

A few weeks ago, one of my best friends from high school was visiting and she brought the most thoughtful gift! She had little dolls made based on the costumes my kids wore during the Little Red Riding Hood episode of Olive Us. Aren’t they adorable?

The dolls are called Peg Buddies. Apparently, you can send them an image, and they’ll create a little doll just for you!

Take a look at the video — it’s so fun to see how carefully the dolls replicated the details:


I’ve included a few more closeups of the dolls below if you’d like to see — and a special doll for June as well!

Little June wasn’t in the Little Red Riding Hood episode, but my friend still wanted to have a doll made for her, so she based June’s doll on her dress in the How To Be Two episode. Take a look:

Those are adorable. I would never want to break up the set by letting each child have their own. At least you have photos of them together.

Oh my goodness, what a great idea! I love them all, but the little June doll is especially sweet.

Adorable! I am going wild over Buzz and Woody.
What a great gift to receive from a friend.

SO amazingly exciting to see my little guys on your blog! I am so so glad that you love them so much! They were seriously so fun to paint in their little characters, and now my four kids love watching OliveUs episodes! :) Thanks for the post!

Isn’t that great? And June has grown out of the dress now, so I love the doll especially.

My husband had some (not sure the artist) made of our family. They are so fun and we all love them. My daughter has her favorite dress at the time and holding her favorite stuffed animal. My husband is holding a Starbucks cup. They are precious and a treasured keepsake!

What a great idea! And what a special friend!

One of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever seen!

Robyn (my friend from high school) is the best gift giver! She really has a knack for coming up with something thoughtful and meaningful and beautiful.

I love these dolls and the whole concept: creative, adorable, and meaningful. Checking out that Etsy shop now!

I had a pair of these made of my husband and me for our wedding cake toppers. We have them on display, and are a great memento of the day!


16 Design Mom June 23, 2013 at 8:01 am

That’s genius, Deborah! A perfect momento.

I’m curious to know if she even got the green placket and buttons down the back! :)

So sweet! I have to ask, where did you get the Little Red Riding Hood Cape? I’m dressing my 2 yr. old daughter up for Halloween and need a cape. TIA!
