The Dreamsicles series and collectibles were made by Kristin Haynes and she started creating them in 1991.

Kristin was raised in Utah amidst an artistic family. After graduating with a degree in art from the University of Utah, she began creating a group of cherubs, bunnies, and other characters now known as Dreamsicles. They were an instant hit throughout Southern California, and demand became so great that Kristin could no longer make them on her own. She turned to Cast Art Industries for assistance, and that's how the Dreamsicles collection was born.

Kristin Haynes DreamsiclesAs a student at the University of Utah, Haynes began creating playful characters that she sold at weekend craft shows. One day, Haynes added a bright flower to one of her figures and the idea for the Dreamsicles was born.

At first, all figures were crafted by Haynes and the initial range of bunnies, cherubs and other collectibles were an immediate success. Demand was so high, she was unable to keep up.

DreamsiclesShe turned to Cast Art Industries, who were producing the various ranges of Dreamsicles. Individual castings, finishing and painting by hand, with natural floral decorations and subtle finishing touches, assured that no two Dreamsicles were ever exactly alike.

As Kristin's sculptures continued to increase in popularity, so did membership in The Dreamsicles Club. Formed in 1993, the club was one of the fastest growing collector organizations with at one point over 110,000 members. The membership came with a Clubhouse Magazine and as an extra free gift, the Membership Kit included the first ever Dreamsicles Journal and a "Keepsake" box.

In 2003 Willitts Designs acquired the brand. There is no official website anymore, but if you are curious how it looked like until 2002, visit this archived webpage. A few lines included Dreamsicles Garden Collection, Our Daily Blessings, and Love Notes.

I was in Ohio visiting by sister when I first saw Dreamsicles. I fell in love with them and still love everyone of my little angels. Thank you so much for your beatiful creations. Cathie
