Get creative this summer with Djeco's Gentle Mermaid Dreamcatchers!
This DIY dreamcatcher kit is the perfect rainy day activity for older children who have more patience than younger ones but still want something fun and creative they can do together at home on those long school holidays. You can use this kit as an opportunity to talk about what dreams are, why they're important, and how you can help them come true!
Djeco is a family company founded by Véronique Michel-Dalès in 1954. The name, Djeco, is a reference to the gecko, the lucky lizard. In 1989 Frédéric Michel-Dalès took over his mother's business and eventually became its CEO. Today he has grown it into an international toy empire with many different products that have been created by both himself and other designers from around the world. For more than 50 years Djeco creations have been awarded four Oscars for toys in the 1960s.
