We received this as a gift and my daughter loved this and played with it for a long time. The mail was hard to keep track of, but overall she played with this toy for a few years. She was always entertained with the different things she could do with it and it was bright and colorful. The bee also buzzed around and she like to put all sorts of mail in it. We even started giving her junk mail to put in her mailbox. When my second daughter came along she played with it with the same enthusiasm. We loved this toy and give it as gifts now.
