How often do you update your shop?
Next Shop Update: JUNE TBD
GAMEBOY GARDENS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT
(I'm currently preparing to move as well as making new pieces for the next shop update so please be patient 🙏 i'm hoping to have a date set soon!)
I usually release about 30-40 pieces per update. Most pieces sell out VERY FAST (within the first 10-20 minutes of the drop) because each one of my pieces is one of a kind.
Items will be marked as "Sold Out" until official release time. Once they are sold they will be removed from my shop.
Do you do custom orders?
I do not take Custom Orders!!!
Can I pre-order or reserve a piece ahead of time?
No. All shop updates are first come first serve!
How much do your pieces cost?
GameBoy Terrariums: starting at $115
DS Lite Terrariums: starting at $155
Do you make more than one of each piece?
All of my Gameboy and DS terrariums are one of a kind, I will sometimes make variations of the same piece but no two are ever the exact same.
How can I see what pieces will be available in your next shop update?
I will announce on social media what pieces will be available, I put the date under each post on Instagram.
I also post a shop preview about a week before each shop update, these pieces will be marked as "sold out" but you'll see the date and time they will be posted if you click on the listing.
Can I request a character?
Yes! You can submit your request HERE
Submitting a response does not guarantee I will make your request. This is just a survery to see what people want to see.
Are they made with real GameBoys?
Most of what I use are newly made replacement shells.
I also work with some recycled shells that come from a friend (@HandheldMedic) who mods Gameboys and DS! These old devices get new shells so I use the old shells that would normally be discarded!
Are the plants real?
The plants are artificial and the moss is preserved, so the planters require little to no maintenance. Everything inside the Gameboy is strongly glued together. However in the rare event that the items are delivered to you loosely, please get in touch.
Are the figurines handmade?
No, the figures use for my pieces are mostly sourced from Japan. I use new and used figures from reliable brands like Bandai and Tomy. I get asked a lot where I get my figures from, I buy from so many different shops and independent sellers that the best advice I can give is to do your own research on google.
How long does it take to make your pieces?
It anywhere from 4-6 hours to make each piece. each one is made with a lot of care and attention to small details.
Where do you get your supplies and figures?
I don't feel super comfortable giving this information out to people. I buy from TONS of different suppliers and wholesalers, and it changes constantly. So my best recommendation is just try some google searches. I promise you'll find stuff you just gotta look.
Do you ship Internationally?
Yes, I do ship the Gameboy/DS Terrariums Internationally! I currently use United States Postal Service for international shipping. The price of shipping will be calculated at checkout.
Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyers responsibility. Please check with your countries customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.
I really care about the environment, and I try to keep my business as green as possible. I use 100% biodegradable bubble wrap and recycled boxes for packing.
