Tame Your Carryall

Keep your taste in tote-alongs wild--not your purse. These illustrated steel cases by Kelly Vivanco round up mints, vitamins, medicine, and small pieces of jewelry for sleek and stylish travel and organization. Influenced by children's literature, vintage photographs and the idiosyncrasies of her dreams, Kelly's accessory clad animal portraits add charm, whimsy and order to your bag-strewn pills.
"Serious Knits" the owl looks piercing in a matching, red knit beanie and sweater. "Third Mate" the toad looks street-savvy in a knit cap and striped tee. "Steward" the cat looks positively sassy in a train conductor hat and scarf.
Illustrations printed on photographic paper and preserved in polyurethane. Made in Burbank, California.

    Comments about MINI ANIMAL PILL CASES:

    I bought one of these pill boxes for myself at Christmas time. It works great for me...as I have to carry 6 different pills to work everyday. The case has a very fun design (the Owl) and it has plenty of room for my daily pills...and it is high quality. My husband liked it so much, I ordered two more of different designs and let him pick his favorite. We LOVE these!

      Comments about MINI ANIMAL PILL CASES:

      I prefer to take my vitamins in the morning after I eat. When I would go out for breakfast, I would wrap my vitamins in a napkin at home, put them in my purse, and either then forget to take them or accidentally throw them out. This pill case (I got the frog) is too cute not to get put out on the table as a reminder to TAKE MY PILLS. I love it.

            I got this as a gift for a family member because the kitty looked like one of theirs -- that and it was slightly practical. It is a tad on the tiny side, but it's still useful. It's also very well made.

                Just the other day I was hunting around for a little box to store SD memory cards in. One of Kelly Vivanco's animal character cases would've been purr-fect. What could you use them for?

                Are they easy to open? How do they open?

                I would have passed right by them calling them pill boxes....would never have thought of them for SD cards

                Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

                They open very easily, Caroline. Just push in the gold button on the front and gently lift the lid.

                While the art on them are cute, they aren't fully my style. Would use one if it had a different print.

                I love the artwork, but would never use the box. Maybe if you put a magnet on the back that would be cool.

                I use these pill boxes for mints and gum and advil. That way I can have the variety pack of the items I take in my bag.

                I LOVE the frog with the beanie striped shirt! Absolutely adorable! I'd keep my eyeliner sharpener inside, he'd go with my nautical inspired make up bag!

                I think these are so cute.
