I will have to get a photo of this once baby arrives - this is an adorable little keepsake for any baby's parents or as a gift to a new mom and baby. I purchased this at Mexx, it's such an understated little kit but the value it has to the parents of a new born baby is immeasurable.
This kit comes with a round package of white clay that is specially designed to remain soft until the baby's hands/feet prints are imbedded into it and is packaged in a protective cellophane to keep it air tight until opened and used. It is then left to air dry and becomes a permanent keepsake for years to come all contained within a beautiful, suede light grey presentation box. The box is similar to a little round hat box that is so popular nowadays.
On the top lid of the box is printed "First hand and footprints". It is just one of many in a collection that is purchased separately and other items that can be purchased include photo albums, hair/tooth and bracelet holder keepsakes, a birth certificate scroll and picture frames.
This particular little kit was only Cdn $29.99 and once the baby's feet and hand prints are taken, by simply stepping the baby into the clay for a few seconds and pressing their hands into the clay as well, gently until the impression is captured, it air dries and becomes a lasting wonderful memory of just how tiny the little one once was. It is also surprisingly light and is suitable to be mounted on a wall or left on a coffee or end table.
A very nice gift to give to any new mother to be that can be done by them at home, any time.
