That's a long title!

These are just plain wood peg-type thingies with a ball at the top and a cylindrical base that flares out. They are maybe 3 inches tall.
Am I making any sense?

I want to paint some as dolls but don't know where to start looking as I don't know what they're called.

Thanks!

Have you checked Caseyswood?

The bottoms of these don't flare out, but maybe they are elsewhere in the site

#8 is the big ones on the far right. A bit more than 3" tall. I've ordered from this company before and was really happy with everything! Shipping adds up, but isn't too bad if you order a few things. If you only want a few, it might be cheaper to get them at the craft store.

I love Casey's! They have ones that flare out that I think they call Angels? This one is 3.5" tall, and they also sell a 2" tall one:

Casey's is the same EXACT stuff as Bayerwood. I like Casey's website better...but when I looked a few months ago, they were out of the peg people I wanted so I didn't think to look again last night. I found Bayerwood when looking for big milk bottles!

Hi, I am going to make some dolls with these wooden peg people and would love to see some that others have made. If any of you have any photos that you could post that would be GREAT. TIA.
