“To send a letter is a good way to go somewhere without moving anything but your heart.” - Phyllis Theroux
In this modern day and age of digital technology, letter writing is fast becoming scarce, but we can bring this special tradition back into our homes with your little one's very own Dear Little Mailbox. Dear Little Mailbox is a brilliant product from Australia by Dear Little Designs that is not just aesthetically pleasing, but also incorporates valuable learning through fun imaginative play. It encourages your little ones to express their thoughts and feelings, be it to siblings, friends, grandparents, Santa, the Tooth fairy or anyone their heart desires. Through this process of receiving and sending letters, they will learn to appreciate good communication and be inspired to get creative.
This product will grow with your child and be a lovely symbol of their childhood days – younger children, though not able to read and write just yet, are still able to appreciate receiving letters that you can read to them and as they pretend to write by doodling on cards, they will be able to verbalise their thoughts and improve their speech and vocabulary. As they grow older, they will certainly develop good letter writing habits as they start to write and read letters independently.
There are also so many opportunities and fun ways to instill important values while using this product – gratitude by writing a thank you letter, empathy through a get well soon card or even humility to write a letter of apology - this product is a must-have!
Your Dear Little Mailbox comes lovingly packaged with a notepad, coloured pencils, sharpener, little envelopes, sticker set and sticker stamps. Your child will be absolutely delighted to receive letters in their very own mailbox and would be eager to use the included stationery supplies to start some letter writing of their own.
Note: Dear Little Mailbox is designed to sit on a shelf or table. If you would like to attach it to the wall, you will need to affix it firmly with screws (not included).
