Blooming Peg Dolls
Author and puppeteer, Margaret Bloom, hosted a peg doll trade. She documented the dear little dolls and sweet stories from all over the world on her blog. You say "peg doll", I see Kokeshi. There are gnomes and geisha and fairies, oh my. If you click on "puppets" in her tag cloud, you will see the sweet puppets and stories she has made.
She also has a book about making peg dolls. She describes them as perfect for children to make. I agree.
