Take a look next time you drive down the block, what do the mailboxes look like? The majority are... adequate. Nothing special. Metal box with a red flag on a wooden post, right? But you'll always also see a handful of fancy mailboxes (which are usually a bit overdone and fru-fru for my taste) as well as a handful of... well, let's just say not-so-pretty ones.
The rust, the cracks, the covers bolted on that look like they were designed in 1972... is that really the first impression that you want to give people of your home?
Fortunately, it's a fairly quick and easy fix to turn your old, worn out mailbox into something crisp, stylish, functional and new, thanks to Step2.
Known as one of the nation's largest toddler toy manufacturers, the Step2 Company was founded on the philosophy of quality, value and service backed by a commitment to customer satisfaction.
With products distributed to retailers throughout the U.S., Canada and over 70 other countries, this is one name that is recognized and known worldwide for being top-of-the-line and fostering learning and development through creative play in children from birth to school-age years.
But did you know that their selection moves beyond only playthings for children? That's right, there are full collections of indoor and outdoor furniture, baby gear, safety items, lawn and garden products and more.
Considering that Step2 puts their same high quality workmanship and attention to detail into making these categories just as dependable, durable and convenient as their toys, I had no doubt that the arrival of the MailMaster Hudson Mailbox would be just the thing to fix up a family member's new home.
From the heavy-duty construction to the all-in-one post and mailbox design, the MailMaster Hudson Mailbox is an attractive and functional way to keep your mail and newspaper clean, dry and in place.
Happy to see that nearly everything we needed was included right in the box...
...my husband and I laid out the pieces and began following the easy step-by-step instructions.
After installing our 4" x 4" post securely into spot, the upper and lower halves of the MailMaster Hudson slid on and snapped right into place over it.
After securing the post with a few bolts and screwing the remaining pieces of the mailbox itself on tightly...
...I screwed the final handle into place on the door...
...and stepped back to compare just how much better the After looked, as compared to the Before.
Hello, curb appeal!
In around 15 minutes we had switched out the old, worn, rotting, slanted mailbox and the MailMaster Hudson had provided a durable, reliable, simple-yet-stylish way to keep incoming and outgoing mail housed perfectly.

Other than the MailMaster Hudson Mailbox that I was provided by Step2 to facilitate my review, I was not compensated or enticed to do this review in any way. This review is solely my honest opinion of this product.
