Fisher Price Mail Box - You've Got A Snail!

When I first saw the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn mailbox I laughed.

I can imagine FP doing a nostalgic version of it in 50 years time, just like the Fisher Price Record Player.

My mailbox is boring, home to a few spiders and fliers for things I would never dream of purchasing.

But when you see all the things the Fisher Price Mail box can teach your child, you'll soon forget that mailboxes are near relics of past times.

You Can Find This Great Mailbox On Amazon

A Letter To Those On The Fence About Buying (Pun Intended)

Yep, it opens and closes, but it does a whole lot more. Mailboxes are meant for letters – and your little one can learn his letters and have a lot of fun with this great toy.

No spiders in this. There’s a snail, butterfly, turtle and a cheerful red bird that sits on the top. The smiling flag on the side and a cheerful yellow grin on the flap are bound to entice a child to want to play. When baby moves the flag up and down he will hear songs and phrases that will teach him opposites, starting with up and down.

He gets three colorful “letters” that he can slide into the slot, helping him develop his coordination. There’s even a parcel he can shake and rattle (like the last thing I bought from eBay that arrived in pieces!)

In all there are 20 singalong tunes and phrases that will help teach your child greetings and how to count, ABCs, colors and simple words and phrases. There are things to spin, he can play peek a boo, push, press and pull things to his heart’s content, all the time learning, listening to songs and developing his motor skills.

The Fisher Price Mail Box was a big hit when my graddaughter got it for Christmas at 6 months old, and many AA batteries later, at 3 she still plays with it. It took her a while to learn all the things it does, she just started out batting the bird and playing with the turtle shell which is a spinning ball. Next she discovered if she turned the roller on the side it would activate songs, and then she moved onto to putting the flag up and down and by then was big enough to play with it standing up instead of on its side.

Of course her baby brother is already playing with it. It’s the first thing that comes out of the toy box when they visit. She knows exactly what each thing does now and instead of letting him discover everything on his own he was introduced to everything in the space of 5 minutes. The good thing is this has proven to be an extremely durable toy that kept her fascinated for at least 2 years and will probably last at least another two. Great value for money!

If you haven’t got a lot of space for toys, or you want one colorful, safe and fun toy for your child that will offer a multitude of learning activities while having fun this mail box defiintely fits the bill. And that’s something you won’t get in this Fisher Price Mail Box, bills.

      Ok, this is too cute! Love the little snail on it LOL. But to answer your question. Yep, it's still important... I mean how else will they know how the stuff they buy online gets to them? :)

      That is a good question. They should at least know of its existence.

      Yes, it's always important to know how life used to be - stagecoaches, pigeons... This looks fun - can even play peekaboo!
