A great way to encourage mini (and not so mini) mortals to enjoy writing is to introduce them to some of Grimm & Co's most esteemed customers.
Each of the below listed magical beings is currently accepting and replying to post from the mortal realm.
If you are yet to meet a dragon, write to Jacob Hunter and enquire about his cutlery hoard in his den at Wharncliffe Side.
Unsure about potion making? Write to Guinevere for tips on growing or sourcing your own ingredients.
Perhaps you enjoy adventures or travel? There is barely a place Cadmus hasn't visited, and he can usually recommend the tastiest local cuisine.
Flicker the fairy, whilst shy, is interested in humans and their ability to fly in aeroplanes! Maybe you could let her know if you've ever taken a trip in one?
Perhaps you are a lonely unicorn and would like to get in touch with a fellow unicorn in a herd with four of their friends?
Ham is the giant who lives at the top of the beanstalk at Grimm & Co. He has two adopted children so would be happy to share and hear ideas for games to play; after all, he is a puzzle master!
Five trolls reside hidden in the troll room at Grimm & Co and enjoy getting up to mischief; reading books about animals in the Forgotten Library, wallpapering with envelopes and hiding fresh troll trumps in the Lucky or Unlucky dip!
And if you have ever visited our Apothecary to the Magical in Rotherham, you will likely have met Malcolm, the resident lazy bones himself. This friendly skeleton can share book recommendations and reading literary creations submitted in letters.
Lastly, you can write to either Father Christmas to find out if you have made it onto the Nice List and send him your wish list, or to Aino the North Pole Elf who has a cheeky sense of humour and knows everything about shoemaking and building snowmen.
Notes for Mortals:
This service is provided through the mortal technical marvel of email, and letters should be shared via email@example.com with your order number in the subject box followed by the name of the person you would like to send your letter to.
One reply per order number.
Letters can be typed or handwritten/drawn and then uploaded into an email (all our magical friends enjoy seeing a handwritten letter).
Please include your name, age and city of residence in the letter so our friends know a little bit about you before writing back.
This is not a physical product, letters and returning correspondence will be shared via email only. Replies may take up to 14 days to come back from the magical realm.
