The perfect guest to any child's tea party, these
charming 'poupéées' are the creations of Péénéélope
Naulleau. Their story began in a house filled with
children and toys, where in her small workshop,
Péénéélope was inspired to make these dolls, using
lambswool stuffing, cotton jersey for skin and
mohair yarns for hair. Like true Waldolf dolls they
are intentionally simple to foster children’s imagi
nation and creativity. Each doll is different but they
are all ready to be loved.

A beautiful doll must have an equally beautiful
wardrobe. Astrid Le Provost’s dolls outfits are
irresistible and a perfect fit for Péénéélope Naulleau’s
dolls. Produced as patterns or ready to wear gar

linen and wool. Her outfits use muted shades and

own choices. If sewing isn’t for you, her collection

dolls and children.

Tamar Mogendorff – her name is as distinctive as
her creations and neither is likely to be forgotten.
The beauty of Tamar’s creations does not lie in
their perfection. Her use of old linen, antique
embroidery, tweed and even newspaper coupled
with rough stitching and raw edges give them a
texture and personality that requires a certain
knowledge to appreciate. What could seem like
flaws to the untrained eye are the essence of the
appeal of these patchwork treasures.
Tamar Mogendorff’s creatures, from £75-£180 choose from a hen with 2 eggs, geese, a penguin family, small, medium and large birdhouses, a polar bear family, an owl couple, a dachshund or a greyhound..
