Flowering Fortune - Beckoning Cat
The 'maneki-neko' (beckoning cat) is a Japanese figurine, often believed to bring good luck to the owner. These small beckoning cats are made from eco-friendly paper clay and contain paper fortunes that will flower if planted. After reading your fortune, sow it, water it, and watch your luck bloom.
Just like the traditional Omikuji, paper fortunes received when making a small offering at a Japanese shrine or temple, these fortunes cover eight aspects of life.
The paper fortunes are embedded with seeds of Sweet Alyssum, Creeping Daisy or Garden Petunia.
Dimensions: 5 x 4.5cm
Inquisitarium was founded on the belief that children learn through play and that toys and books have the power to spark wonder and cultivate a curious personality. We love sourcing the best toys that provide a sensory experience or teach the child something valuable. We are also completely addicted to children's books; our favourites are the beautifully illustrated ones with factual details seamlessly woven into a good bedtime story.
The name 'inquisitarium' aims to create a feeling of place for the sense of being inquisitive, curious and questioning about the universe. It also sounds like a terrarium, which fits wonderfully with our efforts to be green.
We are constantly learning about what it is to have an eco-friendly and sustainable business, and subsequently adapting our business processes and approach to product design and packaging to limit our environmental impact.
