Everythingland Mailbox - Eco Friendly "Green" Play for Kids! (Review!)

A little while ago I presented you with a post with a wonderful recycled cardboard playhouse! Well, today I have a wonderful complimentary post on an Eco-friendly mailbox from a company called Metamorphic Toys


The Everythingland Mailbox is made in the U.S.A from corrugated cardboard, is 100% recyclable and at 10” x 10” x 24” in size it assembles without any need for tools or complicated instructions!   

This toy mailbox not only promotes "green" playtime, but also stimulates imaginative play and creativity as your child can color and draw their own design on the box AND add a little extra flair with Eco-Art U-Stick'Ems, which come with the mailbox ready for you to color, pop out and stick on! 

There is no glue on the back of the Stick'Ems, nor is there any glue included in the box, BUT there is a recipe for non-toxic homemade glue, which comes with the pack so that you can easily whip up your own, safe glue, which I think is a wonderful idea! 



My daughter adores the mailbox and spent hours coloring the box in and picking and choosing her pictures to stick to it and make it her own! There are SO MANY to choose from that we will be able to switch-out and change around the pictures as she decides she doesn't want the old ones on there anymore and they are going to last a long while! 

The mailbox itself is very sturdy and designed to open and close with one movement, making it easy for a child to use it! You could encourage your child to play at mailing out letters or collecting the mail and expanding on his or her play at  the day-to-day and readying them for real-life tasks as well encouraging them to have a little fun! 



With Christmas approaching, it would be fun to have your child pop a letter to Santa in their mailbox perhaps and to have it shipped of to the north pole! Perhaps they might even get a reply right back in their very own mail!? - I think that the kids would LOVE this idea and my daughter has "sent" her letter off already and is extremely excited to hear back from the big man himself! 

"Green" toys are increasing in popularity and require little effort to assemble, promote creative play and take away the worry of pollution and waste! As soon as your child has outgrown their toy you just pass it along or recycle it! Wonderful!

To find out more about the Everythingland Mailbox, with its Eco-Art U-Stick'Ems and other Items available from Metamorphic Toys, you can visit them on their Facebook page HERE and their Twitter page HERE!

If you'd like to purchase one for yourselves, they are also currently available on Amazon, HERE and make a worthy appearance on our 2012 Holiday Gift Guide! 

Enjoy!

I've been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Have a look at my web page http://www.care2.com/c2c/people/profile.html?pid=992391367

Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you're working with? I've loaded your blog in 3 different web
browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster
then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider
at a reasonable price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
