Happy Birth-neigh

Chinese lore holds that babies born during the Year of the Horse (January 31, 2014-February 18, 2015) will be energetic, intelligent, strong, friendly, and loved by many. Mark the development of each of these traits in your special little foal with this Year of the Horse keepsake box. Designed by Kerri Lee, this felt-lined, wooden box comes complete with a special image of an adorable baby horse and a tiny envelope for holding a lock of hair, with space to write your baby's name and birth date. The box is the perfect place to keep the baby's first pair of booties, a favorite toy, or pictures from their first year. Handmade in New York.

        This was a special gift for my granddaughter who was born several months ago. Her mother is very happy with it, and I hope my granddaughter will be, too, when she's older. A good box for special treasures!

                        I purchased this for a co-worker who is about to become a grandma for the first time. She loved the box. I would definitely purchase this item again.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        It was delivered sooner than expected in perfect condition. I had it gift wrapped and sent to my co-worker and I watched her open it. It was nicely done. She and I were very happy with the quality.

                        I love this Baby Keepsake Box because it is unique in its focus on the Chinese birth year. I felt it is the perfect size for small items (like a baby hat and booties, hospital bracelet, etc.), however, it is not large enough to store larger items. It looks perfect in a baby nursery.

                                          The box is well made and totally adorable. Parents/grandparents can keep baby memories then the child can use it for treasures. The cover could not be any more cute. My first grandchild will be born in the "Year of the Horse" and the artwork referencing that is perfect. Love it!!!
