Q: Can this be used outside like by a playhouse

submitted by G - 5 years ago
  • A: Hi! This beautiful wooden Mailbox is designed for indoor use..."Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night" will keep the mail from getting through, if you keep the main inside!

I REALLY wanted to love this. we used to have the blue Melissa and Doug mailbox and it was fun but it wasn't great for imaginative play letter writing, and this one seemed perfect! and the mailbox totally is! but the letter writing stuff is more or less garbage. the erasable crayons don't really erase and the reusable letters get kind of trashed as soon as somebody draws on them. but it is a fun little toy for hiding secret notes, etc.

Worse Melissa and Doug toy I ever purchased. Stickers won’t stay on, crayons fell out of holders, and mailbox hard to open. Very poorly designed and quality.

Great early writing resource

This is a great toy to encourage early writing skills. My child and I enjoyed leaving notes for each other in the mailbox, and over time I could see her notes evolve from scribbles to words! Also fun way to leave a treat to surprise kids with. I'm buying another for my younger child.

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.

When I was younger, I loved playing with this and writing little notes to my parents. Sometimes I used to put M&Ms in it because my dad loved them.

Great to talk about how letters and the post office work. The wipe clean letters are really convenient! My 5yo loves it.

My daughter loves it! She is three and always writing letters to family and friends. I picked this up to scaffold upon what she was already doing. It was a great addition to teach her new found interest. Pen Pal-er in the making!

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!

Just adorable! We bought it to replace the mailbox on our outdoor playhouse. The one that came with the playhouse was flimsy and broke almost right away. It comes with "mail:. I laminated all the pieces of mail for durability sake. This mailbox is sturdy and I expect it to last for years.

This was a Christmas gift for my daughter, and she immediately unwrapped it and started playing with it. She likes it, but with all the other gifts didn't have the attention span to use this for more than about twenty minutes. Thus, I only gave it four stars for value, as it wasn't as thrilling as other toys.

This is a gift for my niece. It's wrapped in plastic so I didn't take it out but it looks very cute. she loves sending mail so I think she'll love having her very own mailbox at her house. she can use it for her playhouse or her room!

My five year old begged for a mailbox. I thought my husband ordered one that we could attach to her outdoor play house. This was even better because she can play inside when it is cold and she is learning how write letters and mail them. Daddy places notes in there for when she comes home from school.

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
