Collection of toy projects
Mainly pirate themed projects done for my favourite French client, Djeco.

The fierce Gnomus comes with a dreaded cage! 
He is one of the Djeco Pirate Arty Toys, and he wants his treasure so beware his cage! 
The brutish figure comes with a fearsome skull staff and strong cage!

I'm currently working on a pirate card game, another 4 vinyl toys and a giant pirate jigsaw puzzle (sneaky peak below). 
I have several projects that are currently being manufactured including pirate swords, balloons and a temporary tattoo.
I'll update this project as they come online.
