I used this product as a decoration on the outside by my back door. I wrote on the side of the mailbox my name and address. On the front, I put leave a note. I attached it to a board and note paper and pencil. Now if a freind come by and I am not home, they can leave a note. It is a great product made of wood. Though it is a kids toy, I used it for a decoration. I had to take off the bottom part to attach it to my board. Everyone loves it. They should sell some with just the mail box alone for cute things like that with no bottom boards on it. Though that was a stand and is useful too. I would recommend this for a child or adult. Made of wood and very usefl for many things. Cute too! Loved it.

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.

Haven't used product yet. Am giving it as a birthday present. However, I got it for a decent price and it looks like a lot of fun!

Bought for my almost 3-year-old and my 5-year-old loves it just as much!
Happy with this product
from Marion, Iowa
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.

MY daughter specifically asked for a toy mailbox. I had forgotten all about her request until I saw these. I know she will be delighted. And she can decorate it how she likes. Very sturdy and big enough to hold mail, but won't take up a lot of space. I got one for her brother too so they can mail things back and forth. Worth the money!
We leave cards and notes back and forth with our grandson for when he comes over. He just loves opening up and seeing what mail or goodies he got.

Cute Mail box, easy to open and close, flag moves up and down easily (wish the flag was a bit taller though). Extra bonus that it comes with an envelope, clever reusable paper/postcards. Along with crayons/pencil. And cute stickers made for spelling your name on the mailbox and numbers for a spot on the box for an address! Con: The wood is separating in the back of the mailbox (came that way straight out of the package) and the paint chips off easily. Overall it's a fun toy for the kids. Kids love pretending to send and receive mail. It's a great entertaining way to interact and play with your kids. Just remember to take the time, their always eagerly waiting for their play time with you.
This is our communicator.
