I like how they’ve described their reason for producing this toy ‘For a generation that may see the end of the post as we know it, we have lovingly designed this bit of history for them to enjoy.’ It’s a simply wonderful toy!
The toy comes boxed in Make Me Iconic’s standard gorgeous cardboard packaging, with images of other colourful iconic items on the side.
Inside you’ll find a red wooden letter box, six wooden letters and six wooden stamps.
The wooden letter box is sturdily constructed and is designed just like a real letter box, with a pull down flap for sending bulky items and a simple turn latch for the bottom door for retrieving the mail.
The wooden letters and toys are bright coloured and cheeky, such as a postcard from Wills and Kate to Prince Harry. The stamps are interchangeable as they attach to each postcard with a velcro dot.
If your toddlers are anything like mine then they love opening and shutting doors and putting things in/on things. So while the toy is aimed at 3+ years due to the small parts, in fact I think a child from 1+ years will enjoy it.
And of course for kids like Lady AB who are old enough to start fantasising about Santa it’s a perfect letter box for sending your own Santa letters!
The Make Me Iconic Post Box is $70 and available from www.makemeiconic.com and these stockists. I’m told that it’s selling quickly and there won’t be enough stock by Christmas…so if you’re after one of these beautiful toys then snap one up now.
If you want to check out Make Me Iconic ’s homewares and toy selection in person then they will be holding a stall at The Big Design Market at Royal Exhibition Building on Friday 5 to Sunday 7 December.
