Foolhouse Treasure boxes were born out of tireless retrieval of my Tupperware containers and shoeboxes that kept disappearing into children’s bedrooms to become vessels for much coveted collections of wishbones, shells, car-parts and so-called precious detritus that just had to be kept!
Made of Multiply and lined with a patchwork of colour, the treasure boxes are a tangible testament to the raw beauty of wood. Comprised of 6 individual compartments, they are perfect for separating all important treasures. The dividers can be removed too if the box needs to evolve to take A4 papers. The lid slides and is operated by a pull hole which can double to take a padlock. The boys love this!
This Treasure Box is adorned with an engraving of a skull and cross bones Jolly Roger and the words Treasure Box – what treasures go in it are are up to you or your little pirate!
For Newborns: The divisions can be removed to use as a memory box – for birthcards or birth certificates (fits A4). Or give them as a baby shower gift and buy little treats for each compartment – booties, singlets, soaps, dummies, creams.
For Toddlers and Boys: Thoughtful as a birthday or Christmas gift – each compartment can be filled with small treats, such as jacks, marbles, rubber balls, playing cards – or hand it over empty and watch them fill it with stickers, rocks, found corks and matchbox cars!
Make sure you get them a padlock too! ( Padlock not included ) My brother, 40+ now! Used to love locking up his most precious things in a secret wooden box – I know there were old Valentine’s cards and fireworks in there!
For Adults: I didn’t expect these boxes to take off for adults at first, but then friend’s husbands enquired of the need for a box that would take vintage watches or cufflink collections. Check out Foolhouse’s Men’s Dresser Box at our shop. Perfect for that quirky Dad or Grandpa. I cannot put an age limit on this box’s usefulness!
Due to the natural materials used to make this box, there can be slight colour variations in the plywood and the appearance of the engraving from that shown in the photos here. Sometimes the timber batches produce a deep sepia engraving and sometimes a warm caramel. Ahh the nature of nature!
The overall box measurements are 332mmL x 234mmW x 93mmH. Internal individual compartment sizes are 95mmH x 100mmW x 65mmH.
