Play Mailbox

For months I've been asking (ahem... yes, that would be nagging) my sweet husband to build our son a mailbox.  Our son outgrew his awesome Little Tikes Garden with the little mailbox that he loved so much and I knew he'd love a bigger one.

Well this one is probably more than I meant, but it was easy and inexpensive to do.  It's just a regular, plastic mailbox on a post with a base nailed on and then painted white.

Our son LOVES it.  He's already stuffed his favorite bear and cars in it and, of course, played mailman.

Now I intend to make him a mail carrier bag and maybe a mailbox (drop box) and he can really get in to his pretending.  Sometimes it's a lot of fun being a parent!

Please drop me a quick comment and let me know what you think!


  1. I LOVE this! Seriously awesome! I am a huge fan of having a mailbox for the kiddos. It is so much fun to leave random things in them for the kiddos. Plus, the amount of play they come up with involving having a mailbox is awesome. We have had many versions of mailboxes here and we always will have at least one! Good job on the nagging, it was totally worth it!

  3. I love this idea! May need to make one for the girls cubby house. With regards to the light globe I believe I bought the smallest box. I think as long as you evenly wrap the lights around it shouldn't matter. Thank you for your comment.
