Penelope Peapod

About Penelope Peapod

Celeb moms like Angelina Jolie, Julianne Moore, Brooke Shields, and Courtney Cox have all been spotted with their tots and Penelope Peapod dolls in tow—and the appeal is clear. The company, founded in 2004, has roots in creator Shelagh Herzog’s childhood, when her grandmother hand-crafted a crocheted toy using yarn, an empty margarine container, and a small baby doll. When Herzog came across the doll while cleaning out her attic years later, she decided to create a modern, high-end version of it, using luxe fabrics. The ideal carry-along for your little ones, each doll comes with a matching cradle that quickly converts to a drawstring purse.
