About Us

Hello there, greetings from Planet Peg and The Little Timber Toyshop! I am Hayley, Mum to two gorgeous boys and hundreds of little wooden peg people! In a previous life (before having children) I was a Primary School Teacher and Early Years Professional. I have a real passion for early education, inspiring imaginative play and sharing super cute wooden toys!

My little business started during lockdown when I got the bug for painting Peg Dolls, to enhance my own provision as a childminder. When lockdown finished and both my boys started school, I officially gave up Childminding and moved to Planet Peg full time, with the aim of turning my hobby into a little business...and here we are 3 years later, still in awe of the incredible journey it's been!

All of my pegs are handpainted, by just me, at my little desk in Staffordshire and even though I absolutely love creating them, sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day, to do what needs to be done! In all honesty, it started to feel impossible to be able to grow the business with pegs alone so I decided to strip everything back, to find a more sustainable way of working...and The Little Timber Toyshop was born!

Planet Peg is still very much active and is the creative/maker side of my business- the brand for my very own handmade wooden toys if you like. You can now shop Planet Peg alongside lots of other beautiful wooden toy brands at The Little Timber Toyshop!

The plan going forward is to keep going and growing! More pegs, more creativity and more wooden loveliness coming your way xx
