Djeco works closely with some of the best artists in France. Author and illustrator Charlotte Labaronne has collaborated with Djeco over many years to produce some of their best-loved products. Janie & Joe adores her artistic style and beautiful illustrations which bring Djeco's wonderful toys to life!
Renowned Children's Books Author and Illustrator
Charlotte Labaronne was born in France and studied illustration at the prestigious École Estienne in Paris.
She illustrates children's books and has developed a deep understanding of the art of story-telling and communication with chldren through illustrations.
Her use of bright, vibrant colours and her lovable depictions of animals gives her an instantly recongnisable style which children adore.

Charlotte Labaronne is also a respected author in her own right. Several of her books, including her delightful debut "Best Friends" and "Just One Roar" have been translated into English.
Collaboration with Djeco
Djeco's toys and games stand out because not only are they manufactured to the highest quality and standards of safety, but they are beautifully designed, illustrated and packaged.
Key to this design aesthetic is bringing in a variety of artistic styles to Djeco's wide range of products.
Charlotte Labaronne is one of our favourite illustrators. Her works can be found in many of Djeco's popular jigsaw puzzle sets.
Puzzles are a great way for children to develop their logical thinking and fine motor skills, so it is an added bonus for Djeco's beautiful artwork to grace these puzzles!
