Welcome Your Friendly Dragon

Chinese lore holds that babies born during the Year of the Dragon (January 23, 2012 and February 9, 2013) will be healthy, honest, brave, sensitive, and energetic. Mark the development of each of these traits in your new, little one with this Year of the Dragon keepsake box. Designed by Kerri Lee, this felt-lined, wooden box comes complete with a special image of a friendly dragon, 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 way to keep the baby's first pair of booties, a favorite toy or pictures of their growth. Handmade in New York.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

      The box was much bigger than expected and it's clearly handmade. The smell of fresh paint is evident when the box is unwrapped. It's also packaged very well, so damage does not occur during shipping. Highly recommended. I purchased one for a boy and one for a girl and both were big hits!

      Cute but too expensive for quality

        Comments about 2012 BIRTH YEAR BOX:

        This is a sweet little box but it won't be durable. The main design overlay on top with the dragon is so thin it appears almost to be paper, and the wood for the box is thin as well. I had read reviews and thought perhaps folks were being too picky... but it is very thin construction for the price I paid - over seventy dollars (even for a hand-made item). I don't see many items personalized for year of the dragon babies and that's why I bought it. For the quality it should be about half the price it is.

        I purchased birth boxes for my 2 grand daughters when they were born and now for a friend's new baby. Everyone appreciated receiving an unique, useful gift that wouldn't be outgrown within a few months. This is a gift for a lifetime.
