Hey Grown-Ups: It’s Not Too Late!


When we were kids summer seemed to go on forever. Remember? That glorious combination of kid time stretching out endlessly and the exquisite boredom of long, aimless days.

Kids have way more structure in their summers than we used to. The days of “go outside and play and come home when the streetlights go on” are from a bygone era. But kids’ sense of time still stretches out like evening shadows, and for them summer is long and full of possibility.

For us grown-ups summer flies by so fast it’s almost cruel. But it’s not too late for the kids. There’s still plenty of time for spy schoolpirate treasure and noble missions. If you order a Mail Order Mystery now we can start shipping your mystery next Thursday and your kid(s) would receive the final installment at the end of August or beginning of September, depending on how far your letter has to travel from Toronto, Canada.

Or, if you would like us to ship your mystery all together in one box so you can dole out the letters at whatever pace you like, just contact us as soon as you place your order. It's a great option if you're going on a road trip or up to a cottage without regular mail service.

Just remember that we may not be able to make changes to orders that have already been placed, and we cannot make changes to orders that have been printed and packed.
