door sticks, mailbox tips over
on August 8, 2007
We are disappointed with this mailbox. The door is mounted so tightly that it is hard to open and close. Unless you brace the mailbox with one hand while working the door, the whole thing falls over. I have been trying to teach my son to brace the mailbox, but at 21 months, he still doesn't understand. He will not play with the mailbox. Occasionally, he will try again, but the thing falls over and he is disappointed--again.
The size could be better. A postcard will barely fit in--with some bending at the edges. My son got postcards this summer from his nanny, and I wanted to "mail" them to him in this box, but it wouldn't really work.
The name decal for the side is just a strip of white stick-on paper, and you have to write the name yourself with your own marker. I wish they had included a sheet of preprinted alphabet letters.
Overall, I would NOT buy this again. It was a waste of money for us.
