In our high-tech world snail mail could easily become a thing of the past — but who doesn’t love to get a personalised letter, postcard or parcel in the post?
A fun way to encourage young children about the delights of sending and receiving mail, self-expression and reading is through Lets Play Mail.
The US-designed set comes with a mailbox, a drawstring mail bag, shipping box, three postcards, two envelopes, six stamps, six address labels and six messages. Stamps and messages stick to mail envelops and postcards with velcro. Soon the kids will be ready to send real mail!
There’s also special delivery sets of letters To Santa, and another to Grandma and Pa. as well as invitations to special parties, and valentines for special friends.
Recommended for ages three and up. The full starter set costs $US49.50. Special delivery sets are $US39.50 and $US20 without the mail box and can be shipped internationally.
