When the Dollmakers' Kattywompus first opened in Monrovia in 1991, it was a small doll shop with just 600 sq. ft of retail space.

Twenty-one years later, this family-owned business occupies a nearly 2,500 square foot space in Old Town Monrovia, and has become a thriving toy, gift and music store that has designed products for companies such as Mattel, Disney Store and Discovery Kids.

The shop in Old Town Monrovia has been design central for such items as the Batman doll for the Michael Keaton movie premier, Three Stooges dolls, Hello Kitty product, science-related product for the Discovery Kids license, and the popular Fancy Nancy dolls and accessories.
