Talking about death is hard for anyone. To explain it to a child when they are already grieving, can be painful for both adult and child alike.
Memories Box is designed to make that process easier for you, and for them.
The box you receive has a plain design, but includes all the art supplies your child will need to customise it, to make it 100% theirs. A memory box to store countless keepsakes, a place to keep treasured items to help them remember the loved one they have lost.
