Djeco is a family business, passed down from mother to son. It is a timeless business whose maxims are creativity, boldness and passion. In the Djeco family, honour goes to the mother, Véronique Michel-Dalès. She created her small company in 1954, a time when few women embarked on adventures of this kind. The company name is a reference to the gecko, the lucky lizard. In 1989 her son then took over the running of the business. In the beginning, he visited the four corners of the earth, importing toys that did not yet exist in France, and his global vision still pervades the little French company.He then began to dream of toys that were not on the market. All that remained... was to create them! In 1997, gifted with artistic skill uncommon in the world of toys, he devised a collection of educational toys. Wooden and cardboard jigsaws, and wooden toys, to begin with, then the range widened to include card and board games.
