    Your group of dolls are called Peg wooden dolls and are collectible
    here is link so you can see and read abouth them
    Peg wooden dolls also known as Dutch dolls is a type of wooden doll from Germany and the Netherlands. They originated as simple lathe turned dolls from the Val Gardena in the Alps.[1] These dolls were sold undressed. Young girls would then make their clothing from scraps of fabric.
