“My kid LOVES her Captain Mail. Every week she's so excited for "her" mail and she makes me open and read it to her while she sits on my lap. It really is some of the most special time we have together.”

Such A Brilliant Idea!

“Bringing new a fresh ideas into the home and conversation pieces. Our grandson loves to get the mail and he overjoyed that something had his name on it. he just turned 4 so unable to read it himself but we enjoyed reading to him and he asked a lot of questions. The reading was long enough for engagement but short enough for busy working parents or grandparents etc. Excellent quality and easy to comprehend content.”

Younger children will need support with reading the envelope content. As your child’s reading skills improve, they will be excited to read more of it themselves. Older children may be able to read it all by themselves.

Throughout our development process, we have collaborate closely with a panel of parents and educators who have direct experience working with children in our target age range.

Month-to-Month Captain Mail plans can be cancelled anytime through your online account. ​You can cancel a monthly or auto-renewing subscription anytime after the initial prepaid term (6 month) has been completed. Auto-renewing subscriptions (pay every 6 months) can be turned "off" at any time so that after the current prepaid term is complete, it will not renew. Auto-renewing 6-month subscriptions cannot be cancelled. Termed subscriptions (6 month terms) are not eligible for cancellation - these subscriptions will expire after the original term is complete. However, plans can be transferred to another child. If there is no one to assign it to, we can assign it to a child in need.
