Petitcolin is a French firm that has been producing dolls for over a century. It is one of the world’s most respected producers, and is responsible for pioneering many doll characteristics that are now industry standard across every type of realistic doll – almond-shaped eyes, turned-up noses and the mouth shape that is half serious, half smiling, are all originally Petitcolin concepts.
Today, Petitcollin has grown to become one of the most well-known producers of dolls both in France and internationally. It is now one of the oldest manufacturers of French dolls for children.
Petitcollin still continues to make dolls using traditional methods today. As the Petitcollin signature trademark, each doll features the mark of the eagle's head which is accompanied by a number which indicates the size of the doll.
