The DCTO (Dreams Come True Object) project is the collectable art figure designed by CHOCOLATE SOOP’s Dacosta Bayley.

It is a modern interpretation of an ancient Japanese Zen doll known as a Daruma doll. This curiously limbless, traditionally red-cloaked figure with unpainted eyes is used for personal dedication to a new venture such as starting a business, beginning a new path in life, or given as a gift for celebrations like New Years, weddings, and birthdays.

Painting in DCTO's left eye shows commitment to a goal; once the goal is achieved, you then paint in DCTO's right eye. DCTO (dik-toe) is designed to right itself when it is knocked over, reflecting the Japanese saying, 'Nanakorobi yaoki' "fall 7 times, rise 8 times".

The online shop is now open just in time for the Holiday Season. So energize those New Year goals with a whole lot of Zen power. Just click the ‘Shop online’ to find your Zen.

Designer toys are fun. I found this at My Plastic Heart. StrangeCo is another favorite designer toy website although many of them are already sold out.

ABOUT EBC

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
