Small toys with tiny frog and penguin in a little tin box

For ages 3 and up (contains small parts).

The tin is the size of an Altoids tin and will fit in a purse or pocket. The lid features a one-of-a-kind original collage by me. Great for keeping kids occupied while waiting for appointments or on an airplane, for example.

This exact set is available, including all the items pictured in the first four photos (including three magnets, shown attached to the inside of the lid in the fourth photo).

Substitutions may be possible, please contact me if you want to request a modification of this tin. For example, I do have a small turtle figurine, but it is ceramic and so breakable. If you want that instead of something else, I can switch it out. I also have a bottlecap frog image, if you'd rather go with that than the turtle. (See last photo for all the bottlecap tokens available. You get one with this tin.)

Please let me know if you want a bottlecap that does not mention beer. The caps are mostly from artisan or craft brewers (from my local wine bar!), but I do have some solid color ones as well as others with no logo or that do not mention the word beer or brewing/brewery, as well as some soft drink caps.

(To see a sampling of what the backs of the bottlecaps look like, see this listing:

Frequently asked questions about SharonsCompendium

The text on cards and book plates can be changed; all book plate listings include a custom option for $8 extra. If you want custom printing on cards, please contact me to work out the details.

I welcome requests for custom made journals, too. Please don't hesitate to ask if interested. Allow about 2 weeks plus shipping time.

I do not do custom drawings or pet portraits, sorry! Neither can I alter an existing drawing.
Gift wrapping includes a mini enclosure card and costs $1.50. Many listings have this as an option you can select when purchasing. If it's not shown as an option, you can still request it as an add on.
I offer quantity discounts on cards (which are $4 per single card) through existing listings of 5 cards for $15 and 10 cards for $20. Since the 10-card deal is already marked down to half price, that is the same as wholesale and available to all customers. Some other items are available for wholesale (quantity discounts). Please ask if interested.
