I purchased this for my 5 year old granddaughter. She is entering Kindergarten this fall. We sat for hours and wrote letters to each other. She told me what she wanted to say in her letter, she cant' spell but does know her alphabet, together we wrote a letter to me, she told me what she wanted to say and I told her letters of the alphabet to form her words. Then she would mail it to me. I would read it and respond with a letter to her. I was amazed at how fast she picked spelling and reading. I would like more envelopes and letters, so mom and dad could each write a letter and place it in her mailbox to read each morning. Also great to bring out to the cottage for the week so all her older cousins could write letters for her to read each day. LOVE this toy

Bought this for my 4 year old who was very excited about getting "her own mail." I was very dissappointed that the crayons fell out of the holders as soon as we opened the plastic and after replacing them realize they had to be taken out of the holders to use them because they kept falling out and my daughter couldn't write with them. Also it comes with a small pencil (not sure why) my daughter used first thing on the "ruled paper" and it will not wipe off instead we had to get an eraser to erase it which removed the lines on the paper and left the smudge of the eraser. Mail box is fine but I trashed everything else that came with it except the reusable envelope and told my daughter she would have to use her own paper to place in the envelope. I own several Melissa and Doug products and this is the first that has dissappointed me this much.

Fun for pretend play

Comments about Melissa & Doug My Own Mailbox:

My 4 year-old daughter chose this mailbox as one of things she wanted to purchase with her birthday money. My husband and I were a bit reluctant, but she has had a lot of fun with it. She enjoys writing (scribbling) on the included letters and "mailing" them to various family members. The set comes with special wipe-off crayons and a pencil so letters can be written over and over. The crayon wipes off easily with a wet paper towel. The pencil needs to be erased (no eraser is included). She is using the crayons up quickly. I think that bath crayons would be just as effective so we may try those when our crayons run out.

Comments about Melissa & Doug My Own Mailbox:

My daughter enjoyed creating her own mailbox by writing her name on it and putting stickers on it. Since we are nearing the Christmas season, she wrote a letter to Santa and mailed it. I am now educating her on how the postal system works. I think this product is a good learning tool.
