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.

We are loving this!

We are only on the 2nd letter, but my kids have been loving it! I also have been enjoying it as well. This is a family affair. Helping the kids figure out the clues. My kids have been training every morning to slay dragons. Lol! I will be telling all my friends to do this!!! What a fun experience.


My seven year old was enthralled from beginning to end. A minor issue was dealt with immediately and cheerfully by customer service (it was so fast we think they must have used magic!). Well thought out and engaging, high quality materials, and the puzzles were challenging but not too difficult. Two thumbs way up, would definitely recommend!

Fun activity

Bought for my niece for her birthday. She is 10 and loved it

A great activity for a an advanced eight year old

I had so much fun with it. I really felt I was accomplishing something. I appreciated the effort the designers put into it. I have done many escape rooms in a box with my mom. This was better than them. It felt professional. I liked the wax seals and the cool codes and cyphers and the different paper and especially the book. I can't wait to order another
