Arborist Peg Doll
Singapore is known as a Garden-City - but looking after all that greenery is tough work!
Community helpers like the Arborist serve us by managing and caring for our trees. Encourage an interest in these lesser-known community helpers by adding this beautifully hand-painted peg doll to your child’s play and watch your child’s interest unfold.
Build on your child’s interest with a book on Singapore’s flora or a video (check out NParks’s youtube channel!) to learn more about these important and hard-working community helpers.
Each peg doll measures approximately 9cm x 4cm.
Please note that these peg dolls are meant to be kept dry and there may be slight variations in each doll as they are hand-painted.
About Faces of Our Community (Part 1)
Community helpers are important! They make our lives easier, keep our communities clean and safe, and help our communities to function efficiently! Some examples of community helpers around us include:
- Firefighters and Paramedics who respond to emergencies
- Nurses and Doctors who help us when we are unwell
- Construction workers and cleaners who build and maintain the places we live in
- And many more!
Faces of Our Community (Part 1) aims to highlight the contributions of community helpers and inspire our children to find out more about them. By presenting community helpers in different skin tones, we also hope to encourage diversity in children’s play and eventually, make diversity in our community the norm.
