Rated 4 out of 5 by i from Fun toy, needs some repair after 1 week. My 2 year old loves this mailbox. She loves the keys to our file cabinet, so I wanted a toy that had a key. Plus an uncle works for the postal service, so it's perfect. The key that came with the toy was too thick to fit in the key hole, so I called and received a new key in a week and a half. This one mostly works, although it still doesn't fit all the way in, so I think the problem is that the key hole is too small. Also, the velcro has fallen off of 3 of the letters/postcards already. Won't be hard to glue back on, and at 2, my daughter is having fun just figuring out which piece of mail goes in which slot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by quietlyis from this is fantastic. I liked the mailbox when I saw it on the website and promptly ordered it for my almost 2 year old son for Christmas. I could tell that it was a shape sorting toy, and my son LOVES mail... easy decision. However, it wasn't until we opened it up that I realized how great it is. The stamps and mail are interchangeable, the mail itself is hilarious to read (the penny saver!), the key is easy to maneuver (and we can manage to open and close the mailbox should the key get lost), and the bottom of the mailbox is lined with material so there's not the constant banging of his other wooden shape sorters. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. I know my son will play with it for years to come. Perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mom2k from Child Loves It My daughter loves to play at the mailbox in our development. While looking for gift ideas for her 2nd birthday, we found this. Everything is wooden and good quality. She enjoys the velcro-attached stamps and the pictures on those as well as the writing on the letters themselves. Her favorite thing, however, is the key. She loves putting it in the door and turning it, opening and closing it over and over. My only complaint was that everything--including the key--was packed so tightly inside the mailbox itself that it took me a while to get it open. I had to hold it upside down and do a LOT of shaking before everything was clear enough from the locking mechanism so I could turn it to get everything out. I also wish there was somewhere that the key could be attached instead of having to keep it the box so it doesn't get lost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WIGrandma from One of their favorites! I bought Melissa and Doug's Stamp and Sort Mailbox almost four years ago when our granddaughter was almost three. She loved it and played with it for several years. Now our grandson who is almost four is playing with it. When I am visiting, we always play 'Let's Deliver the Mail". The postage is velcroed on and the kids love opening the bottom door to retrieve the wooden postcards and letters they've mailed. It has been played with for four years now and looks almost new - very durable. I would highly recommend the Stamp and Sort Mailbox for anyone looking for a gift for a child in this age group.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Joe from No handle? There's no handle on the door. I don't know many toddlers that could open the door by gripping around the lock and pulling it, because it's difficult for me as a 30 year old man. After a few minutes of "open please (he pushes it closed) open please (he pushes it closed." I started getting pretty annoyed especially after one time i bent my fingernail back. Now when he brings the toy over I think to myself "please pick something else, anything else." The M&D product I would not reccomend even though I like everything else about it. My so likes it, but he'd like to be able to open it himself

Rated 5 out of 5 by Will's Mom from More Than Meets The Eye! When my son received this as a gift at 2 1/2 I thought he might be bored with it..was I wrong! Plus, anytime we have a playdate the kids always flock to the mailbox. The mailbox takes shape-sorting to the next level, since the shape is the same on all the letters, just the width and length varies. The turning of the key helps with motor skills. We also read the writing on each letter and postcard, short stories of sort. He loves going to the real post office to mail letters but at home, this is the next best thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoJo's Mommy from This is such a great shape sorter! This is not your traditional shape sorter. It teached your child to really think on how to correctly insert the mail with stamp into the mailbox. My 2 year old son loves this and we make up our own stories about the pictures on the mail and postcards! Hours of fun...
