Letters Appear As If By Magic...
And Transport You Around the World!

I was looking for something fun to do with my girls that would get them away from the television and their devices?  And, like magic, I received "Magic Mail" by Joshua Jay in the mail, and it was just what I needed!  If your kids are adventurers and like magic, or have ever wanted to be a magician, then they will love everything about Magic Mail.

First, parents need to know that they will be needed to help pull off the magic of this product, as they will need to leave labeled mail -- there are 31 pieces of mail in total -- in the cute little mailbox, for kids to find.  You can personalize the postcards with your child(ren)'s name and address on them, to make them more real.  If you are up for this - it really is easy and so worth it, seeing your kids' eyes when they open the mailbox lid and see mail addressed to them waiting for them.

The first letter includes a map that kids will use with each postcard they receive. Once they have read the postcard, they will grab their map and locate where Joshua is in the world, and then mark it.  

Then, they can go back and solve the riddle, code, ciphers or whatever fun problem or activity Joshua shares in his message to your kids each day.  You can choose to do all the postcards at once, or space out daily.  As I was doing this with my girls, I found myself wishing I had waited and done this as a fun and different advent to count down to Christmas.  We don't have elves visit, so this would have made for a fun thing that the girls would look forward to every morning -- finding a postcard in their magic mailbox.  But, we had already started, and I loved seeing just how much fun my girls were having and how they really got into reading each and every postcard, locating places on the map and doing the different activities, as if they were Joshua's apprentice.

By the time we reached the last day, my girls were a little sad, as this was something they looked forward to each day, and when they woke the next day, there would be no magic mail waiting for them.  I told the fun didn't have to stop with the last postcard.  We could take turns leaving messages in the mailbox with fun ciphers and riddles for each other to solve.  And, maybe if they were lucky, they would find surprise magic tricks and treats in the box from time to time. :-)  

We really had a black with the Magic Mail and hope that Joshua come out with another one, as we would definitely pick up and do.  This is one of those unique gifts you never knew existed, but once you see it, you start thinking of the people you want to gift it to.  My girls loved it so much, and now I want to share Magic Mail with nieces and nephews and others.  You can learn more about Magic Mail by visiting  If you are looking for a unique gift that will keep kids engaged and having fun while traveling around the world with a real magician, then you will want to check out Magic Mail.
