How it works: Choose your Mail Order Mystery and order it. Let them know who the mystery is for and when you would like it to begin. Receive an order confirmation and download a gift note for the recipient. Parent(s) or guardian(s) get an email announcing the beginning of the mystery and explaining the process. A series of letters, documents and curious objects begin to arrive in the mail, all connected to an ongoing mystery. After several weeks the story comes to its exciting conclusion. All is resolved. The final mailing contains an artifact or collection of keepsakes related to the mystery. SO FUN FOR KIDS!!!
