Fierce Love

Chinese lore holds that babies born during the Year of the Dragon (January 23, 2012 through February 9, 2013) will be healthy, honest, brave, sensitive, and energetic. Mark the development of each of these traits in your little dragon with Kerri Lee-Sensiba's Year of the Dragon keepsake shadowbox. Inspired by the dioramas she assembled as a child, Kerri created these adorable boxes to hold a child's first-year mementos such as their favorite toy, shoes or pictures. The felt-lined, painted basswood boxes feature and can be propped open with the help of a discreet wooden peg, so its pop-out images of a friendly dragon and the little one's treasured keepsakes can be displayed at a whim. Handmade in New York.

Love this birth year shadowbox!

By 

from Tallahassee, FL

Comments about 2012 DRAGON BIRTH YEAR SHADOWBOX:

My husband let me pick my mother's day gifts this year and I choose this as one of them along with the 2014 box. It just came today and I am very pleased. It is unique and I have always wondered how to store my kids lock of hair, first tooth, baby shoes etc. and this is perfect for that. I just wish I could get ones for my older kids as well!

Disappointed

By 

from Philadelphia, Pa.

Verified Buyer

Comments about 2012 DRAGON BIRTH YEAR SHADOWBOX:

The product looked cheap and I expected better quality for the price.The lettering was cardboard and there was no protective covering over it or the cutout dragon figure. I expected a glass or plexiglass top to protect from dust, etc. Its purpose was a keepsake and I can not imagine it holding up for months let alone years.

      Comments about 2012 DRAGON BIRTH YEAR SHADOWBOX:

      Loved the "characteristics" of the birth year listed for the child.

      The soft colors fit the decor of the child's room

      Like the way you can store the pin in the background when not using it to hold the top of the box open
