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.
The founding of Famosa
Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe's Some Like It Hot… And the premiere of Walt Disney's Cinderella. Juan Ramón Jiménez wins the Nobel Prize in Literature for Platero y yo. The first plastic dolls are made... and Famosa is founded.
A group of artisan dollmakers join together to found FAMOSA. It's so the first Spanish toy manufacturing company is born.
This was the name of the first Famosa doll to be well received on the market. The critics called it a "unique creation in the neoclassical style."
