Letterbox Stationery Sets

Junior Mailbox Package Encourages Kids' Cursive Correspondence

— July 20, 2011 — Life-Stages
It might not be totally unrealistic to suspect that in five years' time some children may be learning to spell on computers rather than with pencil and paper. In an effort to instill letter-writing skills in young ones now, this Junior Mailbox Package embodies the character and tradition of handwritten correspondence in a way that is amusing and accessible.

Acting as a pencil case, this kit comprises a light wooden letterbox modeled on the rounded top hatch type with a notifying flag. Most people have little use for this more primitive sort of post repository, so it's charming to see it rejuvenated as part of this delightful design. Inside, the Seedling Junior Mailbox Package contains envelopes, stamps, pencil crayons and paper to introduce kids to the magic of snail mail.
