CUSTOM TOY KITCHENS BY MACARENA BILBAO
Update: Macarena Bilbao closed her business on Janury 2020 to work on another project. We would like to wish her the best in this new stage, altough we will miss her incredible work. For those of you interested in great wood toys, here are some alternatives:
If you like dreaming, then welcome to the magical world of Macarena Bilbao, a talented Spanish designer that keeps creating treasures that please any child’s imagination: washing machines, fruit and vegetable stands, dressers, desks, shelves, headboards, nightstands, hangers, toy guitars, toy telephones, cameras, wooden fish, accesories, kitchen utensils…..
With a Computer Science degree, it all started at the end of 2010 when Macarena built a toy kitchen out of pallets for her own children, and published the result in her blog, when all of a sudden she began receiving orders.
What initially was an entertainment for her, has now become her passion and her way of living. In 2013 she builds her workshop, and currently she exports her products internationally (worldwide, to more than 15 countries)
There is no doubt whatsoever that the most wanted product of Macarena´s whole catalogue is her kitchen.
Macarena offers three different sizes in her kitchens, in order to suit any space or any age: Pettite, 50 cm; Bam, 60 cm; and Gulliver, 70 cm.
But, what makes her kitchens so special, is that there are not 2 alike. Macarena creates custom made kitchen that can suit any customer’s demand (parent or child), so each kitchen is really an unique piece.
You can see the excitement in every kitchen made by Macarena Bilbao, each detail is carefully hand made, enviromentally friendly and customized to every client´s taste.
All the manufacturing is enviromentally friendly, and each toy is made with FSC (Forest Stewardship Counsil) pine boards form controlled forests. Also, the paints used are water based with low VOC levels.
Macarena is now very excited with her new challenge: a doll house that is now designing in collaboration with interior designer Rebeca Terrón. Although still a prototype, we will soon find it in her catalogue.
