A Year to Crow About

Chinese tradition holds that babies born during the year of the rooster (1/28/2017 - 2/15/2018) will be independent, energetic, and confident. Mark the development of each of these traits for your newest arrival with this keepsake box. Designed by Kerri Lee, this felt-lined wooden box comes complete with a tiny envelope for holding a lock of hair, along 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 Long Eddy, New York.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“I think art and engineering are very intertwined. I have always been interested in design and unique, beautiful things.”

Engineer and designer Kerri Lee-Sensiba's earliest pieces started at her kitchen table, where she would often work through the night. Her designs were born from her desire to create gifts for children with innovative features, artful details, and simple beauty. She began exhibiting at trade shows, and her products quickly garnered national attention and acclaim. Today, Kerri and her team craft their sustainably made designs out of a century-old building in a small New York town along the Delaware River.

I really like the idea of this birth box! I like that it is gender neutral, as my sister (recipient) hasn't revealed the gender. Also, for her other babies she saved their hospital bracelets and ultrasounds only to misplace them later. I thought this box would be a nice place to keep them and a great keepsake for baby.
I was really excited to receive the box HOWEVER the craftsmanship appears to be off. See photos. The felt isn't cut well for the bottom of the box, and the pocket is folding up in both corners and you can clearly see the glue lines where the pocket should be laid down. Is that normal??? I may return... :(
