CrystalHouseCreates Makes Fabulous Gifts For All

I'm always on the lookout for creative and unique toys for Scarlett to play with.  Don't get me wrong, she loves traditional electronic toys just as much as the next child, but there's nothing like using your imagination to create your own fun.  Wooden toys are ideal for putting a child's mind to work to make their own adventure! What are some of your child's favorite wooden toys?

CrystalHouseCreates is an Etsy shop ran by owner Rebecca who creates adorable hand painted wooden peg dolls.  The unique thing about her dolls is that you can choose a ready made theme that she has available in her shop like Harry Potter, religious figures, Star Wars, Wonder Woman, and many others.  The best part is that she also creates custom family peg dolls! How fun would it be to have a set that is painted to look like your family? That certainly would be a conversation starter and a special keepsake that you'd want to have.  If you don't see exactly what you're looking for, Rebecca can work with you to make your peg doll dreams a reality.

I was very excited to have Rebecca create a peg doll set representing my family for Scarlett.  I knew she'd love it and it would be something unique for her to play with and use in her doll house too.

The process is very simple for creation.  I sent Rebecca several pictures of my family so she would have many examples to work from.  She uses acrylic paint to hand create a peg doll likeness from the pictures you send in.  She is very talented and I wish I had the skills and talent to do what she does.

Rebecca was very pleasant to deal with and eager to please.  The peg dolls arrived very fast and were done fabulously.  Two large dolls represented my husband and I, while the smaller one depicted Scarlett.  Rebecca really captured our clothing well on the dolls and didn't miss any tiny details.  The pattern on my shirt and on Scarlett's dress was noticeable and done well.  Our hair color is very accurate and if you turn my doll around, I have long hair!

The peg dolls are solidly built and sturdy.  You'll notice that acrylic paint is high quality and secure, you don't have to worry about it chipping or flaking off.  I loved how bright and vivid the colors were too.

Scarlett really enjoys the peg dolls and knows which one is me, her, and her dad.  She had fun putting them in her toy car and in her doll house.  I hope my peg doll was driving to the store for some chocolate cake!

I'm glad Scarlett has a fun toy set that represents her family, who is so important to her.  If you're looking to have a peg doll set done of your family, they would look great sitting on a shelf or behind a glass cabinet.  It would make a wonderful gift for the person who has everything and you never know what to buy them.

Keep CrystalHouseCreates in mind for all of your future gift giving needs, both present and future!  She'll be ready to work with you and create a fabulous finished product.
