Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this toy 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

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mailbox cute, crayons not so much I thought this product for a Special child that received a school house shed from a charitable organization. I wanted the mailbox so that she could open it and find a letter dedicating the shed to her. I tried using the enclosed crayons to create a post card for her using the cards that came with the mailbox however the crayons did not work. They were worthless. While the mailbox is adorable I was disappointed with the other supplies that came with it

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like it except... Got this for my 3-year-old daughter a few months ago because she always loves pretending to write letters and would stick them in all kinds of silly "mailbox" places. She likes having her own mailbox and putting mail (and other things) in it. We enjoy the postcard face picture and putting things in the envelopes, so there are lots of nice things about this. That said, I'm so disappointed in the crayons that come with the set. The plastic holders are unusable (the crayons slide in and out of them too easily and jiggle around inside them), the crayons themselves are fat and soft so it's impossible to write nicely with them, and they run out quickly while the only refills available come with more plastic holders (what a waste!). It says not to use whiteboard markers to write on the notes, but I think I'm going to switch to them anyway becaus the crayons are so bad. Too bad that such an otherwise nice product is essentially ruined by the awful choice of writing utensil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My niece loves this!!! My niece absolutely loves this! I got it for her for her 3rd birthday. She's having such a blast "writing letters" to all her friends and family members, which is particularly lovely since we're on different coasts. I couldn't recommend this more highly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it This was a gift for my granddaughter but we ran out of paper and envelopes rather quickly. Is there any way we could purchase another set of just those? She loved writing and "mailing" letters - I would like to purchase for my younger granddaughter now

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I already bought it again for one grandchild to take home. This is an adorable toy. I have two grandchildren, both age 3 , and they play with this constantly! Mail is supplied as are erasable crayons. But I always add some index cards when we run out of "Mail"! They love the product!
