I’m a little on the fence about whether Toymail is a genius idea or an error that’ll have your kids talking to mailboxes.
The app is free, and comes with ten free messages; after that, each message will have to be paid for in the form of stamps (we’re assuming each stamp is worth one message). A buck will get you fifty stamps; for exceptionally chatty kids or parents, unlimited messaging can be had for $3 a month.
The Mailmen are $50 each — which won’t change much from the post-Kickstarter price — which makes them fairly inexpensive holiday gifts for younger kids. That is, if you can get around the idea of parenting via a mailbox-shaped cartoon character.
