The Enchanted Slumber

Dragon illustration from fairy tale mystery for kids

The Enchanted Slumber is a limited subscription consisting of five letter mail envelopes and a final package. The envelopes, many of which are made of parchment and sealed with wax, contain objects and clues such as necklaces etched with cipher code. The letters are written directly to kids from the characters in the mystery. When kids accept their “noble mission” to help an unlikely group of friends on their quest, they become the heroes of their own story. The final package contains a beautiful hard-cover fairy tale book, a special thank you gift and a personalized message about friendship and love. 

Ages 8 and up, or 6-7 with help from an adult. Great for girls and boys.

Mail Order Mysteries are not for children under three. Small parts could present a choking hazard.

Great service nieces loved it!

I purchased mail order mystery Enchanted Slumber for my three nieces aged 10, 8 and 7 as a gift during spring break. All three girls loved it, they took the knight training seriously and were able to solve all of the clues. The personalized book was a wonderful surprise at the end. The experience was a great week long event during a challenging time during the pandemic. It was a great mix of physical activity, mental health through meditation and problem solving.

In terms of customer service the team at Mail Order mystery were awesome. I messed up the address and quickly reply and helped me get a new package sent. I would recommend to anyone!


This was so much fun for the whole family! As soon as we solved this mystery we bought the Big Foot mail order, which we’re enjoying now. The design is perfect and adds to the immersive experience.

Wonderful Gift

I bought this for my niece and hoped she would enjoy it. She really had fun with it and enjoyed the challenge of the puzzles, the fun of waiting to be given the next envelope (her Mom gave her one per week), and the book she received in the end. She enjoyed it so much I have bought her another one already! Highly recommend this as a gift item!
