Need to cheer someone up? Mail A Monkey urges us all to let the flowers grow and send a stuffed animal in a tube instead. The tube is completely clear. So when you open your mailbox, you’ll see a monkey or frog or cat smiling up at you from the comfort of their shipping container.
While I can safely say I’d prefer the flowers, you can bet my kids would take the stuffed animal any day. What a fun birthday gift idea for your niece or nephew that lives far from you. Extra bonus: all of the shipping tubes, and many of the toys, are made from organic materials — and there are some cute ones! My favorite is the classic sock monkey and this knitty dog.
