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...
I ordered this for my daughter because she loves to get the mail. So far she has received the first box and one additional letter. She is super excited to read the letters and look at the surprises. Snail Mail went above and beyond on the first box. They are currently back-ordered on the stuffed animals, but they filled the box with all kinds of other specials treats.
Thank you so much! We hope your daughter is now snuggling with her Sunny plush and enjoying his mail. He loves listening to kids read their letters aloud. :) :) Thanks again!
We signed Addison Sky up for Snail Mail in March. She is 3 and loves her Snail Mail. Her Mom, Samantha, told us today that her Snail is played with night and day and she does not think that it can be mended any more times. So I called and talked to Wendy and asked her if I could buy one. She was wonderful and is sending Addison Sky a brand new one free. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness.
My children received their box today and absolutely love it!! It was their very first one and they really enjoyed the stuffed animals as well as the feathers and first introductory letter/stickers. Especially with everything going on in the world, it is really nice for them to have something positive to look forward to in their lives. Additionally, their customer service is outstanding; they are extremely responsive to any inquiries.
Thanks so much! We are so happy to hear your children are loving Sunny! Our number one goal is happy kids! :)
My 8yr old daughter has Dyslexia & has struggled to learn to read. Desperately looking for resources & finding nothing tailored for Dyslexia I came across Sunny. The starter box is more than worth it's cost & weekly letters about animals with funny stories, Jokes, & trinkets is spot on for an 8yr old. There's a lot of extras with these letters & she practices reading willingly & all on her own with excitement each week. We are definitely happy & recommend you try Sunny!! UPDATE: Sunny sent my daughter a special gift. It's note cards specially printed with her name on them. Now my kiddo writes what she learned, questions she has, & more on her note cards. This totally expanded the learning value of your already wonderful product even more. WE CAN'T STRESS ENOUGH HOW WORTH IT THIS HAS BEEN!!! I'd subscribe to any box for children curated by the amazing mind behind Sunny the Mail Snail.
Thanks so much for your great review! We are so happy to hear Sunny's letters are helping with your daughter's reading. It is our mission to encourage reading, imagination and lots of laughter. Thanks again for the great recommendation!
So unique! I bought these for my pre-k 3 students because I wanted to teach them about actual mail that is not virtual. We have created a job on our job board dedicated to checking our class mailbox to see what Sunny has delivered. The kids love the adventures that he goes on and anxiously await to see what is next. Since it is geared towards only 1 child and we only receive one of the "special" items with each box (feather, sticker, etc.) we decided to just hang our map up and display it on a our cork board for all to see!
Thank you so much for this Subscription! My 4 yr old gets to share her mail and fun little surprises with her older brothers. Great way for them to bond! Wonderful Customer Service!
Great!!! Kids Loved it! Always excited to run to the mail box to see what “snailmail” brought for them!!! =)
My expectations for this product were set pretty high. Once it arrived (quickly), it exceeded all my expectations and my 8 year old loves it! It is a little treat that she gets every week and will count down the days until the next one. I love that it's something as simple as a letter that gets her excited and her mind going. So glad I ordered this!
Thank you SO much! We love that your daughter is loving Sunny. We have so much fun with the letters and his adventures and are thrilled to have such a great review.
I really like how Sunny’s letters are educational and my five-year old doesn’t realize that she’s learning! My daughter asks when Sunny will write her another letter, and she loves getting real mail and seeing her name on the envelope! We read Sunny’s letters together, then she sees if any stickers were included, and she keeps all of it in the first box we were sent that contained the map and an adorable plushie of Sunny. I think this is a wonderful subscription for young kiddos, especially since they only have to wait one week until Sunny’s next letter!
I subscribed for my nephews 1 1/2 and 4 1/4 ,I knew the younger one wouldn't really understand,but he gets so excited going to the mail box to check for his and his brothers mail from Sunny! The boys each received their own Sunny stuffy and they love them! The older boy has hung his map up with the help from mom of course,and gets very excited to pin his weekly item up! They really enjoy the letter to them and learning about new animals and the little gifts they get weekly, they have only recieved their initial box with Sunny and the map, and one additional week, but their mom said they are really excited and enjoying it, so I have renewed for the second month for them and plan to renew as long as they are enjoying it, it is incredibly affordable for so much fun they get from it! They really like getting the weekly letter addressed to them, it makes them feel extra special having their names on the letter in the mail! I originally subscribed because I missed them and wanted something that would continue, this was weekly so it was even better, I remember being a kid and loved something as simple as recieving mail with my name on it, and thought this was such a wonderful idea ,the other reason was because of covid 19 and the boys having a really hard time not being able to visit us and other families and...
My daughter and I loved this so much that I ordered this as a gift for 2 of my friends children. The snail is adorable and the packaging was really well done . I was also impressed with the shipping and customer service responsiveness. It really gives us something to look forward too . Love it !
First off, what great customer service! I forgot to input the code to get the stuffed snail so I sent them a message. They sent TWO stuffed snails (one for each of our kids)! My littles love getting "snail mail" every week. They can't wait to see who he delivered mail to, and we always look up the place on the map. Plus stickers and/or little tattoos - what's not to like?
