The Cabinet sets the story of the murderous Dr. Caligari and his somnambulist slave Cesare in an off-kilter world of puppetry and intricate machinery.

Delightful shop filled with antique writing cabinets adorned with bones and dried flowers, candles beside aged porcelain dolls and taxidermied deer. You’ll be lured in by the faint trickle of 1920′s music, vintage glass, charts of mysterious anatomical regions and dim glare of strange medical devices alongside exotic beetles.

The packaging also aims to educate kids about different species of animals. Via
