Each of Kate's Wooden You gorgeous wooden dolls is hand drawn and then hand painted (not mass produced) in Melbourne, to your specifications; there may be imperfections from time to time, which only adds to their character. Lots of love goes into creating each doll, as I found out while exchanging emails about my own custom made family dolls. I kind of regret not ordering superhero capes for myself and my husband, teehee, but I know one thing: Kate's doll would have a superhero cape on; I think she'll wish her superpower was not needing sleep, because she won't be able to keep up soon.

What a great start to imaginative play; perfectly sized for little hands and a fun representation of each of our family members. These hold a place of honour on our mantle...when they are not in the kids' hands!"

All products are hand-painted using non-toxic paints and varnishes, so they're safe for little people. Wooden You recommends the peg dolls for children four years and over, due to the small size.

If you would like a custom order, see the photo gallery for inspiration (don't forget Fido!), pricing page for guidelines, then send Kate an email for final pricing.
