As we have made no attempt to keep secret, terrariums are an inexhaustible delight to us. The mini landscapes provided delicious fodder for weekend daydreams when we were little, as we're sure they'd continue to do, if only our days stayed as endless as they were back then. But this particular terrarium is also literally delicious.
Basil provides the foliage for the imaginary little people, and a real puppy, turtle or frog figure gives your imagination a break to populate the tiny world. The kit comes with an apothecary jar, seeds, growing medium and instructions.
