Q: The shipping information states the box will ship within three days of ordering. How long then does it take for the box to reach the recipient? Thank you Asked by Kimberly L., December 2022

Snail Mail for Kids answered...December 2022

Hi Kimberly. We ship the boxes via USPS Priority so depending on the region it's between 2-3 days. We are shipping your box today and it's a 2 day transit time so it should arrive by Monday. Thanks! Wendy

Q: Can I purchase now and have it ship the week of Christmas? The first shipment had the box and the plush right and then the next week he could start receiving letters?Asked by Britin B., November 2022

Snail Mail for Kids answered...November 2022

HI there. Definitely! That's no problem. Just leave us a note in the GIFT NOTE section to hold until the week of Christmas. We are also adding a survey that will allow you to select your shipping timeframe. Yes, we would ship the BOX with PLUSH first so they can open for Christmas, and then the weekly letters will start the week after Christmas. So, a great gift that keeps on giving. :)

I just submitted my order but there was no where to say that I wanted to wait until Christmas!! How do I make sure it doesn’t ship yet!???!

Q: I am a little confused. So they receive a letter once a week but then do they also receive a box once a month? Asked by Kendra C., June 2022

Snail Mail for Kids answered...June 2022

Hi there! So sorry for any confusion. We are a unique gift in that we send a weekly mailing versus a monthly box. For Cratejoy customers, we ship a PLUSH Sunny the Snail toy which comes in a box with the first letter. So, the subscription does start with a box but continues with weekly letters after the plush is received. Thanks so much for asking!

My 4 year old loved getting letters from Sunny. She always showed off her stickers and pictures to family that would visit. She also loved her stuffed Sunny and would bring him to daycare whenever she got the chance. Thanks for making lasting memories for our family.

In love!

My daughter was thrilled to receive this box and the snail plush is perfectly precious. The box came a bit smashed, but everything inside was perfectly fine. We're so excited to receive our letters!

My six-year-old loves it. We combine it with a world globe and other geography activities, i.e., US and world map magnets. It would be neat if they could get responses to letters. Perhaps they could add that on for an extra charge. We have had trouble with not getting a letter every week, but they have helped us make it right.

Snail Mail for Kids said...Mar 21, 2022

Thanks so very much and we are so happy to hear your son loves it. That's a great idea and we will work on add on option for Sunny to respond to his fan mail letters and hope to have something in place very soon.

Great gift idea for young kids

I guess I expected that they would have an activity in the first box. I was hoping for a bit more interaction. It is unclear what we are supposed to "match" the stickers to also. We are still excited to see what comes.

Snail Mail for Kids said...Mar 13, 2022

Thanks so much for your feedback and we are so sorry for any confusion. The package you received was the BONUS Sunny Stuffed Animal that we give free to all Cratejoy customers. We send that with the first letter as a complimentary gift. We don't offer an activity box but instead send weekly letters with matching stickers, passport books, posters, stationery, secret codes, and prizes along the way as kids solve their secret codes. We hope that once you have received a batch of letters and solved a code or two you will reconsider leaving us a 5-star review. The first letter should arrive any day now and then weekly, and those letters will have the set of stickers that...

Oh my goodness. Never before has there been a more perfect subscription box for a little kid desperate for mail. My son is the youngest of four (so already has a bit of an excluded complex), and we had to move with the army in the middle of this global pandemic - to a new state and a street with not one single other kid on it. Mail has become our primary connection with the outside world. But when a day passes and there isn’t anything for a five year old (or, even worse, when there IS something for an older sibling), all devastation ensues.
Cue Sunny, the Mail Snail. Not only is he cute, he’s the embodiment of worldly connection for my little isolated kids (and he’s brought to us by our beloved USPS mail lady - who is mom’s only social outlet, the poor dear). Sunny comes with adorable little cards and envelopes (all of which were used almost immediately), and, most importantly, a real, genuine VIP card, allocating membership to the super elite club of Snail Mail Recipients. Nothing in the entire world has ever made my kid feel as special as that VIP card does.
We are so excited for WEEKLY letters from Sunny. Waiting a month between most subscription boxes can feel like an agonizing eternity for little kids (and moms trying to find ways to entertain said kids). The perfect solution is a smaller, but still entertaining and engaging weekly subscription.
There was absolutely...

Feel good gift for youngsters!

Thanks so very much for this wonderful review! We are really hoping to instill a love of mail and glad to hear it working. Kids can really learn about the world in a fun way that makes them feel so important. And, thanks for your mail carrier service too. :)
