Remember back in elementary school when you used to write messages on paper, fold them up into paper planes and fly them across the classroom to the recipient—except that they would veer off course and land on Lisa Clark’s desk and then she would tell on the teacher?
Yeah, we never actually did that either, but that story sure does make a great segue for us to introduce flying letter, a charming novelty product by Japanese fashion brand HUMOR.
The flying letter set comes with one sheet of writing paper for you to write your message on and an envelope made of craft paper. Both materials are designed so that if you put the writing paper inside the envelope and fold according to the instructions, they’ll make a paper airplane just like the kind you used to make when you were a kid!
Flying letter is also 100% mailable by Japanese post—just write down the address and paste a 120 yen stamp in the space provided!
Now you can have the mailman deliver the paper airplane across the room for you! Take that Lisa!
I purchase a flying letter set for myself and was pleased by the cute design: the font on the envelope is stylish and the small paper plane mark at the bottom of the ruled writing paper is a nice touch.
Flying letter is available for purchase on the HUMOR website at the price of 840 yen (US $10.75) per set.
Given the high price and the fact that there’s no guarantee your plane won’t get crushed out of shape on route, we recommend sending your flying letter to someone really special. As in, definitely not Lisa Clark.
