Information

The Jouets Petitcollin toymakers is the last French company making traditional dolls still in operation. Over one hundred years old, it was especially famous for its baby doll which quickly became every little girl’s favourite toy. The company has been open to the public since 1998 and invites you to discover the various stages in making a doll: fitting and painting the eyes, attaching the hair, fitting and assembling the limbs, sewing the clothes and dressing it, all carried out using traditional craftsmanship. Finally, to satisfy your curiosity, delve into the history of this emblematic French heritage with a visit to the doll museum adjoining the factory, which was created in 2009 by the Pays d’Etain Communauté de Communes local authority.
