Since 1860, Petitcollin has manufactured their unique dolls. The company became the top French manufacturer of celluloid dolls between 1930 and 1960. 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.
