This highly personalized and customized version of our Kuriosity Kits is perfect for any age and gender, as it is very versatile and open-ended. Most of the items inside can be used as jewelry (pendants, charms, zipper charms, etc.) and each kit comes with one high-quality waxed cotton cord. Cords are unisex and adjustable from 18 to 20 inches.
The items are tactile and most are interactive, such as the spinning globe, working compass, magnifying glass, padlock and keys, etc. In combination with the all items that can be used for imaginative play, this kit also makes a great portable, interactive toy, perfect for waiting rooms, airports, road trips, etc.
Do you know someone heading off on a big adventure, such as camp, college, Peace Corp, or any type of travel? Let the items you choose serve as tangible, symbolic good luck tokens.
Please notify me through messaging of the 12 items you would like, and they will be placed inside a container of your choosing. I decorate the outside according to your preference and guidance (please see item photos for samples). Many customers leave the design up to me, others provide very specific requests; both approaches work well! Please see first item photos for just a small sampling of box designs. This list follows the items as shown in the main photo, from left to right.

Thank you so much for shopping with us, and let us know if you have any questions!
For most items, I use USPS priority flat-rate shipping which ranges from $7.15 up to $13.50, depending on the size of the item. The exception is handmade jewelry items, which ship for $3 using USPS.
I do combine shipping, so I can can typically ship up to three items in a single box/package for one price.
Most items ship within three to five business days, and therefore most items will arrive within a week to ten days after order placement. If you need an item sooner, such a a bereavement gift, please let me know and I'll work with you!
By request, I am happy to do overnight shipping, with the buyer paying shipping fees above and beyond the regular shipping costs per item. Most of my listings have a "shipping upgrade" option at checkout; if you don't find this, just let me know through Etsy conversation.
I always provide the tracking number regardless of shipping method. If for whatever reason it costs more to send than anticipated, I will cover the difference.
We accept PayPal, credit cards, and Etsy gift cards
