This mailbox is too cute for words. I love the fact that it celebrates the importance of good old snail mail, and that it provides the perfect home for all of the kids' letters, drawings and invitations to lounge room performances. It's down to $49.99 right now at Toy Universe, and it's the best price we've seen on this hard-to-find gem.
The mailbox is actually wooden, so it's a lovely sturdy little unit that will no doubt withstand the preschool years. It comes with a wooden key that kids use to open up the box and collect mail, and also includes six letters and six removable stamps.
I'm so tempted to grab this for my kids; in a house where letters and notes are constantly being passed around, it would come in so handy. It's also a great way to teach kids about communication and the way the postal system works.
Standard shipping is $9.95.
