Kids Subscription Box: Personalised Fairy Tale Letters from Magic Inkpot
As a child, I remember how excited I would get whenever I received a letter in the post. I remember getting cross because every day, mail would arrive & be addressed to my parents. I clearly recall my mum saying that this wasn’t a good thing as usually, it meant paying a bill! However, on the rare occasion I did receive something, it would be a complete surprise & / or something exciting. Birthday cards, party invitations, penpal letters… Now, my children still receive some of these items in the post, but it seems so much more unusual than it did when I was a kid! I think living in this current digital age, we often receive cards, invites or general messages via digital means. It’s sad that we’re slowly losing the art of letter sending. That’s where Magic Inkpot come in…
“When I was very young, my father used to make up stories about the adventures of three talking cats and a little girl called Lucy who, looking back, was probably a fictional version of me. They meant more to me than he could possibly have imagined at the time. They were my stories and my adventures – nobody else’s – and this made me feel incredibly valued and special.”
Judith Katz, Founder of The Magic Ink Pot
Magic Inkpot is a “tiny team of writers, artists & educational experts who believe that the right story can ignite a child’s imagination in a very special way”. One of the ways in which they do this is by sending children personalised Letters from Fairyland through the post.
Just like Judith’s special memories, the personalised Letters from Fairyland are designed to be treasured & create lasting memories for children.
You can choose to receive a one-off letter, but we actually chose the 3-month subscription to Letters From Fairyland. This meant that once a month for three months a brightly-coloured envelope arrived through the letterbox, addressed to its lucky recipient.
Inside each lovingly designed envelope is a charming two-page letter written to your child from your chosen fairy-tale characters. You can choose which character your child would prefer. There are plenty of options, ranging from a daredevil Gingerbread Man, a shamefaced dragon, a troll with big dreams & even Father Christmas himself, plus many more…
The different character options for the three-month subscription are:
A. The Troll, The Dragon, The Elf
B. The Gingerbread Man, Humpty-Dumpty, The Three Little Pigs
C. Hansel and Gretel, Goldilocks, The Mermaid
D. The Giant, Tom Thumb, The Musicians of Bremen
Once you have placed your order, a certificate from Fairyland informing the child of their gift will be posted immediately. It’s a lovely way of introducing your child to the subscription. Thereafter, the letters themselves will be posted on the 5th of each month.
Prices for this subscription are £5.99 for 1 letter, £17.99 for a 3-month subscription £34.99 for a 6-month subscription & £64.99 for 12 months. This is correct as of November 2018.
These letters are most certainly memorable & made the most perfect, & unusual, gift! I love how each one is addressed to your child & the excitement my daughter showed when one arrived through the post was lovely. Letters from Fairyland can be enjoyed independently or read aloud to younger or less confident readers. All are written to appeal to both boys and girls. The perfect gift for any child with a huge imagination!
The letters are also perfect starters to base lots of learning opportunities on, for example, we built a gingerbread house after receiving our letter from Hansel & Gretal. We also explored under the sea creatures based on the Mermaid & used Goldilocks to practise counting.
Not only does Magic Inkpot send personalised letters, but they also write Bespoke Stories. These lovely stories are written, illustrated & printed entirely for your child. Another lovely gift for Christmas, birthdays etc. I do highly recommend giving these services a go – check out the full range over at Magic Inkpot.
