What are Dilly Blue dolls?

Dilly Blue dolls (aka Dillys) are wooden peg dolls and other wonderful wooden toy shapes, designed for small world play with an emphasis on learning through play.

How are Dillys brought to life?

All of our wooden dolls are made in Wales using responsibly sourced wood. They are hand painted using eco friendly paints and sealed using a child-safe blend of plant-based waxes and plant oil.

Are Dilly Blue dolls suitable for children?

All of our dolls have been through strict testing and are UKCA / CE certified by an independent lab.

Our 6.5cm and 7cm dolls are suitable from birth, though we recommend for play from 12 months as teething may damage the paint.

Our Diferion, Madarch and Skittles are suitable from birth, though we recommend from 12 months as teething may damage the paint. 

Our keyrings are suitable from 3 years+ only and should not be given to younger children as they may pose a choke risk.  

Are Dillys male or female?

Our dolls are gender-neutral. We occasionally choose to imply gender if it feels necessary to the design but overall they are either, both and anything along the spectrum.

Are Dillys eco-friendly?

All of our dolls are made from sustainably-grown wood. They are painted with low VOC, eco-friendly paints and finished with a blend of plant based waxes and plant oils to preserve the paint whilst giving a soft matte finish.

All of our packaging is either recycled or recyclable.

Do you take orders for custom dolls or sets?

Not at the moment, sorry!

Are Dilly colours random?

Yes we have made a conscious decision to be inclusive with all Dillys. If you would like to select which colours we use as part of your order then please add notes during checkout to the notes section provided.


International shipping update
Due to international shipping delays with Royal Mail's service, we've added a ParcelForce option. This is the fastest way for our international customers to receive orders so if you need your items quickly, please choose ParcelForce at checkout.

If standard Royal Mail shipping is selected at checkout, we have no control over the speed of the delivery and we are unable to refund or resend delayed orders until the statutory amount of time has elapsed: Royal Mail currently do not consider loss claims until after 25 working days after the due delivery date (source).

Where do you ship to?

We can ship anywhere in the world aside from within the EU (Brexit...le sigh), however do be sure to check your country’s import customs tax regulations as Dilly Blue is not responsible for any customs charges that may arise.

Do you accept returns?

Returns are only accepted within 14 days of your order. Products must be returned in brand new condition with all original packaging.

Cwtch Nadolig

What is Cwtch Nadolig?
Cwtch Nadolig is Welsh for "Christmas cuddle" and this Christmas we're again giving a cwtch in the form of a set of Dillys to someone you know and love.

More than any other year, things are tough for families with the cost of living crisis.
So we've decided to donate Dilly Blue gifts to help out families who might not otherwise be able to afford a gift.
We believe wooden toys are the best toys because they last and can bring joy to this generation of children and the next.

And when things are tough, even the smallest cuddle can help.

How can I donate?

During checkout there is an option to add a donation to your order, either a fixed percentage of your order or a custom amount. 

All donations will go to Cwtch Nadolig

What if I can't donate?

Don't worry, we're doing Cwtch Nadolig regardless of donations, but our Dilly fans' contributions mean we are able to help more families and share more of the Dilly joy.

Nadolig llawen i chi gyd / happy Christmas to you all 🖤 🌈
