Marilu Doll made in Argentina
Marilu Doll made in Argentina 
Dolls only made in Argentina. The story of Marilu is the story of hundreds of Argentine girls who grew up playing with these dolls, who sowed those tiny gorgeous outfits taylormade for their own doll with those unique Parisian flavored model-patterns that appeared in the monthly issue of the Marilu Magazine. According to the experts it all began back in 1932 when Alicia Larguia talked with the German doll manufacturers Kammer & Reinhardt for a custom made porcelain doll. This was the genesis of a broad generation of sophisticated top notch dolls made for the luxury Argentinean consumption. Soon after the first models were made the doll was indeed a true success among the upper argentine society. By 1936 the production was taken over by another German firm: Konig and Wernicke. It would take until 1940 till a fully Argentine firm began to conceive and coordinate the production of these sophisticated gorgeous dolls. Early in 1940 the local Bebilandia was the sole company in charge of producing and marketing the outstanding Marilu. The Marilu dolls were true artistic creations, handcrafted and decorated in detail to the extent of featuring expressions and twinkling eyes… These were paste and wooden made dolls; the hair was natural and original; the eyes –one of the most outstanding features- were light blue sleepy looking. However the extreme detail within the lips, teeth, and tongue were the top detail references. Even back in 1940 this was the most sophisticated and valuable Marilu doll available. Without a doubt it still is, for that careful detail within the finishing touches is indeed an appreciated feature both for collectors and amateurs who enjoy the beauty within the artwork. This particular model had wooden legs and arms that had been coated with a couple of delicate paste layers to create a very finished real look. The fine technique for the articulations movements is outstanding; shoulders, elbows and hands move and rotate naturally. There’s a unique trademark sign that helps to identify the original Marilu dolls, and that is a blue stamp on the back of the neck –generally hidden by the long and beautiful hair-. Marilu dolls are 55 centimeters tall by 20 centimeters wide and 10 depth; this standardized size was the key to the other outstanding feature that came along with the beautiful doll: a stupendous, chic and sophisticated wardrobe. Featuring the latest stylish addition to the Parisian aesthetic trend or the newest Argentine creation a broad doll sized wardrobe kept up-to-date the doll image with which Society girls identified deeply. In those days the French feminine influence was without a doubt the strongest female role model. Considering this, we can trace a deep and strong influence that the French Bluette dolls had on the conception and development of Marilu. Alike the French weekly magazine La Semain the Suzette, Marilu Magazine was also a trend setter. These magazines were solely issued for the young female public; it was indeed the best proven proper method to assist these young girls into the feminine world of the time. Cuisine, sewing, bricolage, fairy tale stories and girly games were the index options featured by these publications. This super chic edition together and the oh-my-god fashionable doll wardrobe teamed up with the Marilu store for the moms and young women that alike the doll outfits were at the avant-garde of stylish clothing in Buenos Aires. Indeed Marilu was a trend setter for the feminine Argentine public. When researching the origins of those superb tailored mini outfits Marilu Dolls modeled we had the pleasure of meeting the relatives of one of the first Marilu tailors: Bid and Rene. They were so pleased with the research we had carried on trying to recover the story of Marilu from oblivion in the national and international market. They told us the insight story of the Marilu wardrobe in the early days of it’s conception. The Bidegain family who lived in Argentina was in the shoe making business –this was a family craft that was passed generation to generation-. Jean Hiriart who was Georges Bidegain's brother-in-law owned a shoe store called "Les Bebes" on Florida Ave in downtown Buenos Aires’ hottest and most sophisticated shopping area. A sunny morning while he was working on a great pair of shoes a beautiful woman walked in and asked Mr. Hiriart if he would make shoes for a doll that she was making. He said he was too into his shoemaking work but thought that his apprentice Georges Bidegain, would make them for her. Georges and his wife, Denise de Jaureguiberry, and her sister, Marguerite started making shoes and clothes for the woman's doll. The doll was "Marilu." Unfortunately when the Bidegain family left the Argentine Republic to their motherland France they had a trunk full of their own production and the Marilu dolls that was stolen the minute they set foot on the old continent. Nonetheless, in spite of the fact that the newer Bidegain generations couldn’t enjoy first hand these gorgeous dolls, they had left the world’s doll lovers a true and extremely valuable gift of sophistication, beauty and quality products for children.

Topic: Argentina

Bob Frassinetti, art and antique dealer and free lance journalist from Argentina, Buenos Aires, working on the web, writing both for pleasure and work on art, antiques and collectables, in and on Buenos Aires, Argentina as well are neighbouring countries, Chile and Uruguay.

Bob Frassinetti, the man without a childhood......... Don Frazinetti,el Hombre que no tuvo infancia. Agosto 3 Buenos Aires.


Maybe “The biggest collector of Argentine toys: Mr. Frassinetti, the man without childhood”, reads the headline in the latest Veintitres, a prestigious Argentine weekly issued magazine of more than 31,000 copies. Intrepid and provocative as most of their articles, this piece on Bob Frassinetti is no exception to the rule. The local journalist Diego Rojas teamed with Horacio Paone an Argentine photographer to work on this article on occasion of the Buenos Aires Toy Museum show at the British Arts Center to tell the nation the story behind this upcoming and growing cultural project that is Arts + Retro Toys. Born in Buenos Aires Argentina, and having lived all along the globe –from England to Guyana, from Colombia to the Caribbean, to latter reside in Buenos Aires city- Bob tells Diego “When I was a child, my parents didn’t buy me many toys, I used to play with nature and create my own toys… now as a grown up I felt it was pay back time, and currently I owe more than 10,000 toys with are part of my private Argentine made or found toys from 1900s.” Hence the title, making use of good humor and irony…Further on in the article Bob answers to Diego’s question regarding which were his childhood games and toys “We fished in the Caribbean coasts, from small multi-color ones to baby sharks and piranhas. When I was eleven I used to have an owl as a mascot. At that time I had the joy of meeting the Beatles first hand, because they were shooting the movie Help and stayed at my best friend’s house who had rented them a mansion in the Islands”. Bob’s life’s story is amazing, and the experience he gained through his life’s adventures is now being synthesized in his life projects such as BA Toy Museum and Art + Retro Toys shows. He’s a cosmopolite man and takes advantage of his multi culture feel to develop new and intrepid projects. In the world of toy collectibles he has his favorite of all: popular toys, those home-made unique pieces that reflect parental love to their children, home made items produced with handy materials and tons of imagination. To him, these are priceless items of joy and design, which he treasures as solid gold. Bob is an eccentric and joyful collector who has made a life project out of his passions and interests. Upfront and well hearted, this article has been able to capture of Bob and his project’s essence.

Más de 200 pueblos bonaerenses corren riesgo de desaparecer

• Informe especial
Surgidas a la vera de los ferrocarriles, diversas localidades del interior de la provincia tuvieron su tiempo de esplendor. Hoy se apagan lentamente, entre el envejecimiento de la población y la falta de oportunidades.
Bruno Lazzaro
Mansión. El viejo castillo de Egaña contaba con 77 habitaciones, 14 baños, dos cocinas y hasta un taller de carpintería. En el último censo, el pueblo perteneciente al partido de Rauch registraba 44 habitantes. La construcción del castillo empezó hace exactamente 100 años. Es uno de los lugares abandonados más atractivos de Buenos Aires.

Es uno de los lugares abandonados más atractivos de Buenos Aires.

A la vera de la vida. Y también de las vías. Así se desarrollaron los pueblos. De esa manera se comunicaron, prosperaron y eligieron su camino. Con los anteojos para ver los lujos de lejos; y de cerca, las cercas: el tiempo y el espacio, delimitados. Con la puerta abierta y el horizonte siempre en la olla. Hirviendo ante la eventualidad del sueño. De partir para alcanzar. Y de su posterior desarraigo. Porque hoy irse no significa volver. Y el tren ya no pasa. Y las luces se apagan.

En Ernestina viven 150 personas, 180 si se cuenta la parte rural. La mayoría de la población tiene más de 50 años. Pero no siempre fue igual. Cuenta la leyenda que en 1926, el príncipe de Gales, Eduardo VII, visitó el pueblo. De su pasó quedó el asfalto de la avenida principal de una localidad que alguna vez tuvo su auge y que, en la actualidad, forma parte de los más de 200 pueblos bonaerenses que corren riesgo de desaparecer ya que cuentan con menos de 300 personas.

Situado a más de 170 kilómetros de la Capital Federal, Ernestina (perteneciente al municipio de 25 de Mayo) aún conserva la magia que lo vio nacer. Sin embargo, diferentes factores lo llevaron a iniciar un declive poblacional que se fue remarcando en cada censo.

Lo mismo sucede, por tomar algunos casos aislados y de diferentes municipios, en Smith (que forma parte de Carlos Casares), un pueblo ubicado a 350 km de Buenos Aires y que ya no supera los 500 habitantes. El 10 por ciento de los 5 mil que vivían en 1930. 

En 1992 Smith sobrevivió a lo impensado. Luego de comprobarse que las tierras habían sido adquiridas a través de un, hoy, viejo y obsoleto sistema de libretas, el pueblo estuvo a puntos de ser rematado, pero gracias a diferentes acciones gubernamentales no ocurrió.

Ejemplos hay varios: Fortín Tiburcio, en Junín (250 habitantes); Marcelino Ugarte, en 9 de Julio (quedan 75 de los 3.500 pobladores que tuvo); o Cura Malal, en Coronel Suárez (menos de 100 habitantes). Hay casos excepcionales. Como el ocurre en Egaña (perteneciente a Rauch) donde se encuentra el Castillo de Egaña, una construcción magnífica que luce, abandonadas, las 70 habitaciones que lo componen en un pueblo donde hoy viven menos de 50 habitantes.

De gala. Pese a que el tren ya no pasa, Ernestina es uno de los pueblos más bellos de la provincia. Cuenta con cerca de 200 habitantes y en 1926 fue visitado por Eduardo VII, príncipe de Gales.

Diálogo activo

Guillermo Cavallero tiene 53 años y desde hace dos años y medio es delegado de Ernestina, cargo al que accedió a las dos semanas de ser elegido como coordinador luego de que el intendente Hernán Ralinqueo le diera la categoría de delegación. "Soy el primero, y es un logro enorme de esta gestión", cuenta el hombre que todos los días recorre los 20 kilómetros de su Norberto De La Riestra local para llegar a su lugar de trabajo. En total son ocho los trabajadores, entre el encargado de la recolección de basura, el de la poda, los enfermeros y los administrativos. "Como no soy nativo, me miraban con otros ojos, como sapo de otro pozo. Pero en mi casa me enseñaron respeto y trabajo. Y de esa manera, cuando no está alguno de los encargados, ahí me ven recolectando la basura, regando o sacando ramas. Desde entonces ya me hicieron parte", asegura Picaporte, el apodo por el que lo llaman todos, hasta el jefe municipal.

A Guillermo le sobra un deseo: "Ojalá algún día vuelva el tren. Nos devolvería todo. No es tanta la inversión cuando se trata de la vida". Y también una queja, claro: "Se pueden hacer más cosas, pero depende de la coparticipación. Y hay algunos que reciben más por ser del mismo partido. No es nuestro caso", asegura el delegado de Ernestina por Unidad Ciudadana.

En la misma línea, Ralinqueo dice que "si queremos crecer, el ferrocarril debe ser algo estratégico. Es un servicio público esencial. Hay que planificar de aquí a 20 años. No es inimaginable que los pueblos vuelvan a tener un esplendor".

Pero no todas las perspectivas son iguales. Según el intendente de 25 de Mayo "la vida cotidiana se desarrolla con los servicios agropecuarios y el comercio. Se ve la posibilidad de un crecimiento. Apostamos a eso. Antes no había presencia estatal, y ahora sí. Con la superpoblación del conurbano están llegando personas con ganas de invertir y comprar un terreno para una casa de fin de semana. El mismo proceso de Uribelarrea lo estamos empezando a vivir. Ernestina tiene la maravilla de la naturaleza y la ventaja de que se compran lotes grandes por bajo precio".


Muchos pueblos corren riesgo de desaparecer. Pero cuáles son los factores que llevan a que esto suceda. Según Javier Varani, docente y especialista en asuntos municipales, hay cinco puntos a tener en cuenta.

El primero, y principal, tiene que ver con que "la Argentina no tiene una política pública de ocupación de territorio. Todo lo contrario. Somos un país que concentró la mayoría de su población en un solo lugar. Y en esto somos campeones del mundo ya que tenemos el 32 por ciento de la gente agrupada en el área metropolitana de Buenos Aires".

No es un dato menor. Según Naciones Unidas, la acumulación de población es una de las principales causas de subdesarrollo debido a que de esta manera se generan economías desiguales. Lo que pasa claramente con el Fondo del Conurbano. Para Varani una política que apuesta a poner más plata para que cada vez, más gente viva peor. Para revertir esto hay que apostar a ciudades intermedias, de entre 500 mil y 2 millones de personas. Que cuenten con la totalidad de los servicios públicos. Pero no se debate porque todos sabemos que el que gana el Conurbano, gana el país. 

Treinta años atrás, el entonces presidente Raúl Alfonsín, soñó con llevar la capital del país a Viedma para descomprimir la ciudad de Buenos Aires. La aventura no fue bien recibida. "Ya no hay que mover al presidente. Lo que deberíamos hacer es ubicar, por ejemplo, al ministro de Agricultura en Río Cuarto o poner a YPF en un lugar donde haya petróleo".

Otro de los asuntos más importantes tiene que ver con el desmantelamiento del ferrocarril. El fin de la conexión entre los pueblos no sólo marcó el encarecimiento de todo lo que tenga que ver con las economías locales sino también que muchos de aquellos que se fueron a probar suerte, o a estudiar a la gran urbe, nunca volvieron. Lo que da como resultado otro factor: el envejecimiento de la población. Sin establecimientos educativos y sanitarios cercanos, se rompe la cadena de la propia evolución de un pueblo.

El cuarto motivo está relacionado a las rutas. Los pueblos siempre funcionaron a la vera de los caminos principales, pero de a poco eso que significaba su mejor aliado se convirtió en el peor enemigo y los pueblos comenzaron a desarrollarse lejos de las rutas. Varani marca un claro ejemplo del séptimo arte. "Se puede ver muy claro en Cars. Cuando se rediseña el camino y la ruta ya no lo atraviesa, el pueblo se muere".

Como quinto punto podría hablarse de cuestiones climatológica, como lo sucedido en Villa Epecuén (ver recuadro), pero ahí las políticas no son la principal causa.

Cierra el especialista: "Si Alberdi reviviera, diría: 'Gobernar es poblar... inteligentemente". Y hay que hacerlo. Casi 700 pueblos están por debajo de los 1000 habitantes y pueden llegar a estar en vías de extinción".
