In the Djeco family, honour goes to the mother, Véronique Michel-Dalès. She created her small company in 1954, it was a family business that was passed down to her son.
She devised educational games such as Le loto des quatre jeudis and Ma maison des puces. Djeco’s games are attractive, intelligent and fun at the same time. The company name is a reference to the gecko, the lucky lizard.
The family business was put to bed for a while as Frédéric grew up... In 1989 the young man decided to reawaken the company and make the family business his playground. He began to dream of toys that were not on the market. All that remained... was to create them!
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.
