My daughter has been loving her story! Thank you, Flying Trunk, for a magical experience!

My daughter read it this morning to great delight tinged with sadness that it was the final story. She just loved the gifts.

I can’t imagine a better gift for a child.

My five-year old granddaughter loved her letters from Bobby Bunny. She treasures each item sent with them and keeps them safe and sound in the lovely box they first came in—a great child’s gift!

Christine R., Grandparent in Ann Arbor, MI

So great! It’s been super fun.

Linda S., Parent in Bainbridge Island, WA

Your stories have inspired my daughter, and she is busy writing one herself!

Tanya L., Parent in Ann Arbor, MI

My daughter really enjoyed the whole experience of receiving the stories. She really loved the objects too and they helped to flesh out the story for her. This was a a really nice gift and we appreciate the amount of care and effort that has gone into it.

Peter J., Parent in Norwich, UK

She loved it! Her mother and her both participated and had a ball. She opened up the last package with me and she was so excited. She absolutely loved it. I have to say it was quite the experience for her. I am so thankful.

Greg S., Grandparent in Escanaba, MI

I really appreciate that you include older kids. Middle schoolers, especially, are often overlooked in experiences like this; they still have that childlike spark in them that needs to be nurtured. You just can’t find stuff like this for that age group.

Nancy H., Grandparent in Menasha, WI
