Do your kids like getting mail? Maybe we can organize a little swap where we send some fun stuff. I was thinking maybe a postcard or something about where you live, some stickers and/or other fun little odds & ends, perhaps a picture... How do people feel about food items? Anyway, it sounded in the sticker thread like at least a few other people might be interested so I made a sign up form.

I was thinking we could leave the sign up open until the 16th and then I could pair people up and we could try to swap by early March? Any takers?

Sounds awesome! Scarlett loves when mail comes through our mail slot and always brings it to us, saying, "I so helpful!" I think she'll lose her mind when we tell her something arrived for HER!

We'd love to do it if international swapping is cool. Clara just figured out stickers (at a recent playdate) but I haven't bought any real ones so she is making do with banana stickers.

I hope everyone posts lots of pics! I love this idea, but I have no kid and I want to see what everyone's getting!

This is such a sweet idea! I think F. would be super thrilled to get mail. Plus, she loves stickers! (This would be international as well, if that's ok.)

Ditto this! Swaps are the best. I totally want to see the results of a PPKid swap. :)

Solipsistnation volunteered to do the actual like, mailing and participating and stuff, but I'm with you all in spirit (and maybe I'll find some cool stickers too but I'm not promising!).

I've been more of a lurker than a poster these days, but Henry would love this, he loves checking for mail!

I should add international is fine with me too as long as it's envelopes and not parcels.

That sounds good! I also intended only to send an envelop. Parcels cost a fortune and take forever to get delivered.

That's good information to have! I never would have known there was a difference.

Oh, we'd love to do this too! Freya gets excited by the post every day, looking for "something good". Today, when we saw that the postman had been while we were gone, she points to the mail slot (like 2" tall) and says "maybe there's a package in there..I like packages". We would send some stickers or something similar too though.

I'm excited so many people want to do this! I think it's going to be really fun. I'll leave the sign up open until tonight in case anyone else wants to join and then I'll try to match & PM everybody tomorrow.
