Where toys live

to bring joy to children between 2 and 7 years in the form of toys that foster their all-round development

our values are the basis of our business culture.

We are a traditional toy company with world renowned brands and products which are kept fresh and alive through constant Innovation.

Safety is crucial at Famosa in two ways: On the one hand, our products, intended for children, meet and often exceed all safety requirements while, on the other hand, we have established safety in our daily activities as a priority.

We base our activities and competitiveness on quality. In order to manufacture our products, we use processes and materials of the highest quality, and controlled under the strictest techniques.

In our organization we believe that working as a team is the key to success; consequently we promote cooperation, sharing information and a sense of belonging to a team. Would you like to become part of the Famosa team?

We are enthusiastic and happy, like the children we serve.

We are consistent, honest and reliable in all our activities, both internal and external.

Our history consists of a half century of creating dreams

In 1957, in the place known today as Toy Valley in Alicante, a large number of small toymaker entrepreneurs decided to join forces, in response to the changes in technology in that field. This was caused by the appearance of plastic toys and the difficulty of funding the investments necessary to maintain competitiveness in view of the new situation. That's how Fábricas Agrupadas de Muñecas de Onil, S.A. (FAMOSA) was born.

Half a century later, we are still the premiere Spanish toy manufacturer, leading the industry in Spain and Portugal, with a major presence in more than 50 countries, including France, Italy, Mexico and the USA.

One dream? No. Thousands of dreams let Famosa go wherever imagination goes.
