Nina & Marco Collection
Nina & Marco is a collection of porcelain figurines of children and related items, designed by Julia E. Limpke for Goebel. They are characterized by large eyes and gentle facial expressions, reflecting the innocence and exuberance Julia sees in her own children and their friends.

The collection was first introduced by Goebel at the Frankfurt Spring Fair of 1992, although it was not officially branded as Nina & Marco until 1998. It was an instant success!

Proceeds from the sale of Nina & Marco merchandise go towards helping children in need throughout the world. Julia and Goebel have partnered with SOS Children's Villages to make sure each sale makes a positive difference.

There are now hundreds of items in the Nina & Marco collection, covering all aspects of childhood, from playground fun to loving family moments.

In 2000, a collector's club was formed, called Friends of Nina & Marco. Members would receive a welcome pack, including a figurine, and regular newsletters. They would also be eligible for exclusive member-only offers.

In 2003, Zapf Creation AG began producing a range of Nina & Marco limited edition 17" dolls, based on the Goebel figurines. Goebel produced the heads, arms and legs from porcelain and Zapf assembled them with soft bodies and their signature Designer Collection style. As with the figurines, proceeds from the dolls also benefit SOS Children's Villages.
