Arrived quickly in a cute little box that you could just throw a bow on and give as a gift or it's the perfect size for a stocking stuffer. It is a sturdy rubber like case and in the box are cute little stickers and accessories you can decorate the car with. I'm not going to do that right now because I'm using this as a stocking stuffer. I can't figure out how you're supposed to get the accessories to stick, but my grandson's will know. The keychain carabiner will be great for hooking this to their backpacks. My grandson's will love that they can decorate this themselves. They love things like that. I would like the option to purchase one where you didn't have to do the decorating. That's just me personally. I didn't see any instructions, but there was a card in the box that has an email address you can use for any questions. But how to use this is pretty self explanatory.
