This monster keepsake box named Erik is a great companion. He loves to eat small things so if something is missing you'll know just where to look. He measures 2 inches square and 2 and 3/4 inches high (to the top of his eye balls). I have lined the inside with green olive felt. He is painted with acrylic paint and sealed with a clear finish. This box is not recommended for young children as it is not a toy. I have little pieces of felt under the feet to protect surfaces and signed it on the bottom. Note: this decorative box does not have a closing clasp on the front.
