Inspired by the American & European Toys, Dolls, & Doll Houses newly on display in our Permanent Toys & Dolls gallery, join us this February to create your wooden peg doll! Penny Peg Dolls, also known as Dutch Dolls, are simple wooden dolls with jointed arms and legs attached with simple pegs. These dolls were sold undressed and girls would make clothing for their dolls from scraps of fabric. Hand-carved and hand-painted peg dolls in various sizes were made in the United States and the Italian Alps.
At 1pm, join us in our Theater Gallery for a special performance of La Jolla Playhouse’s 2017 POP Tour #SuperShinySara. The POP Tour brings an original production specifically crafted for young audiences that addresses themes and situations that resonate with age groups 3rd – 6th grade. Seating will be limited to 100.
