Snail Mail Stories kids personalised & educational subscription boxes

Customised with a child’s name and delivered by the postie, they have that joy of receiving fun personalised and educational pen-pal letters from one of two fictional Snail Mail Stories characters in their letterbox each month.

Our fictional characters Wendy and Wilde are inspiring and friendly pen-pals who have inquisitive minds. They are always thinking, talking, creating and doing and have lots of exciting ideas.

Each Snail Mail Stories envelope is bursting with a vintage poem or classic story, activities and crafts that inspire children to play in nature.

Our subscriptions make great personalised and educational gifts, something a little bit different for children to enjoy.

Snail Mail Stories is such an easy way to encourage little readers, writers and artists! Less screen-time and more quality conversations, all delivered in a personalised envelope to your letterbox each month.

The way it works - you take out a monthly subscription with us and we send a personalised letter in a chock-full envelope to your child. They can reply with a letter, drawing or anything they choose to post. We then customise our next Snail Mail letter in response to this, just like a real pen-pal.

We love the replies we receive about the activities children have done or the poems and stories they’ve read. They also send us their drawings and photos of the crafts they have proudly made.
