Dolls made by Götz Puppenmanufaktur
Götz dolls have been fascinating children since 1950, the founding year of Götz Puppenfabrik. The history of the doll as one of the oldest toys existing goes back even further. Children already played with dolls made from porcelain or alabaster in the Roman Empire.
And even though the world we live in has changed fundamentally since then, creative play with dolls didn't lose any of its attraction.
Since the 15th century dolls as we know them have been accompanying children when growing up. Our own history dates back to the year 1950 when Marianne and Franz Götz founded the Götz Puppenfabrik in Rödental. Since 1999 Götz Puppenmanufaktur has been managed by Anke Götz-Beyer and Uwe Beyer in second generation.
Marianne and Franz Götz found the Götz Puppenfabrik in Mönchröden (later part of the town Rödental). The first dolls were made of papermache. The papermachee part were bought and lovingly built to a doll . All femily members helped to make the story a sucess. Franz Götz sold and delivered the first years the dolls himself.
