If you’re looking for a snazzy personalized gift idea, you may want to get in touch with Pegged, an Etsy store which sells cutesy wooden figurines with the appearance of pretty much anyone you can think of. Pegged’s founder Tamara has already crafted hundreds of dolls for families and newlyweds, but now she’s also branching out into capturing the likeness of pop culture staples like Superman, Harry Potter, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Scooby Doo and even The Beatles. It seems like there truly is a Pegged creation for everyone.
Each Pegged figurine is beautifully crafted and painted. Tamara chooses to keep things simple by illustrating details in a minimalist manner that articulates each characters’ attributes while retaining an adorable aesthetic. My favorite wooden dolls by her are the ones based on real-life family members.
