Honor Your Little One

Chinese lore holds that babies born during the Year of the Horse (January 31, 2014–February 18, 2015) will be good communicators, perceptive, cheerful, and clever. Mark the development of each of these traits in your special little foal with this Year of the Horse keepsake shadowbox.
Inspired by the dioramas she assembled as a child, Kerri Lee created these adorable boxes to hold a child's first-year mementos, such as their favorite trinket, shoes, or first-year photographs. The felt-lined, painted basswood box can be propped open with the help of a discreet wooden peg, so its pop-out images of an adorable horse and the little one's treasured keepsakes can be displayed at whim. Handmade in New York.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

        I bought this for my niece's baptism. My sister teared up when she opened the gift. It is so cute and so well made. Such a unique surprise and great way to store keepsakes.

        Cute, but overpriced

              Ordered this to give to a friend for her daughter's birth. It's really cute, but WAY overpriced. I may keep it, it was so expensive, I guess I expected more - in the packaging or what it is. Again, very cute!

                    This product is not only adorable, but has great workmanship. It is also very versatile with the different built-in display options. I would highly recommend this purchase for a new parent or young child.

                      Display as shadow box when child is very young.
                      Close lid and use as memory box thereafter.
                      I enclosed a special family memento.
                      Suggested to the new mom that she add items, such as 1st tooth, hair curl, along the way.
                      Not inexpensive, but worth the price. I definitely would buy it again!
