It is very important to me that Stevie understands and celebrates different cultural practices. I really wanted to find Indigenous peg dolls created by a small, local Indigenous company. Luckily for me, I found Chloe! My favourite thing is meeting the creators and artists behind these products in person - Chloe and her kids are so lovely and welcoming. Stevie and I loved our little lunch time play date!

Created with inspiration from Chloe's old Indigenous dance days, where the girls wore black, red or other coloured dresses and the boys wore the traditional Lap Lap. Painted up in traditional Ocher; A clay rock made into a paste and painted onto their skin and clothing to be one with the land.
Need Inspiration? Chloe is an Early Childhood Educator and recommends creating small world play areas or cultural displays with her Wooden Aboriginal Peg Dolls. Lay some soil, grass, leaves and branches etc on a little tray table and create a little world so children can play and learn. 
Chloe is a young Indigenous woman from Barkindji and Maliangappa mobs situated along the Darling River in Western NSW, and Gamilaroi from Northern NSW.
