Check out our walkthrough for Dream Chronicles: The Chosen Child.

- To find the star constellations, check this sky map:
Chapter 1 – Treehouse

- As you try to go to the sewing room, suddenly the room changes, and the door closes.
- In order to open the door again, use the grey key on the door lock, and grab the door handle and put it on the door. Go through to the sewing room.
- As you enter the sewing room, another strange thing happens, as your mat is cut into pieces and scattered around, and your sewing machine is broken.
- Grab the two mat pieces from the wall.

Outside Brenna’s house

- When you pass through the gateway, you arrive in the Nexus, a central hub via which you can access different areas. In order to open another gateway, and visit the next area, you need to collect dream jewels, and match the colors so that they correspont to the colored gems above the closed gateway.
First collect the metallic object.
- Now pull the handle and the gateways will move, putting you in front of a closed gateway with 1 orange and 2 blue gems. From your inventory, select the two dream jewels, and turn them around so that their combined colors match the gems above the gateway, and the gateway will open. Go through.
