Rated 4 out of 5 by petsfurever overall, a really nice product
This is a great product to be used as a memory cube for pets. It will hold the cremains of a small to medium pet, plus room for a collar, toy, or other pet memento. With pictures on the outside, and the paw print on the top, it makes a great way to keep your pet with you, in a sense, once they've passed on.
The only thing I'd improve on is providing a form for making a good circle with the clay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 4Cinnamon A tasteful, classy display
I ordered two of the boxes to hold my dog's ashes (1 is for me & 1 is a gift for my brother). I purchased a small jar with a screw-tight lid at Hobby Lobby to actually hold the ashes. The jar fits inside the box as well as some other mementos like a rope toy and name tags. I already had paw prints so I'll use the clay kits for another pet. The directions for the clay kit seem straight-forward enough. I used the glue from the kit to secure the paw prints I had and it seemed to work well.
The quality of the box is about what I expected. It's not fine craftsmanship. There are little flaws (some of the glass for the picture frames had broken corners, which are not visible from the outside; the wood on one box had a blemish or scratch). I placed 2 adhesive "bumpers" on the front top corners of the box to cushion the lid when closed, otherwise it rattled a bit. You may need to tighten the hinges to the lid.
This was the first thing I'd ordered from Doctors Foster & Smith and it was right before Christmas. Their email confirmations were useful, timely, and everything arrived when they said it would. I would have been happy paying about $10 less than I did for each box, but I don't feel ripped off by what I paid.
All in all, it's a nice display and much better than the cardboard box that had been storing my dog's paw prints for 11 years. My picky, perfectionist brother seemed to be pleased with his display box, too.
