  2. Jbcarey

    That really all looks amazing… (except the blue woman in Miami)

  3. ilif

    I would love to have one of those

  4. wtyang24

    i wonder if the owner of the blue lady one is a fan of nip/tuck or sth.

  5. gary

    wow, that’s quite a collection. Surprised kids don’t make off w/them. Like the use of the microwave, does it zap bills?

  6. Vlad

    “That really all looks amazing… (except the blue woman in Miami)”

    Yeah OK. The white trash style, straight from trailer park microwave oven mailbox is amazing, but blue mannequin is not.
    Too much human anatomy for you, prude?

  7. her

  12. Haroon

    Yea have to agree with Robby, blue lady is really creative thing

  13. SadistiX

    How did they make those?

  14. Erin

    Blue lady is freaking amazing.
    It appears she looks like she’s wearing latex.
    And I’m assuming it’s the “human furniture” concept,
    somethign I don’t support as a lifestyle, but do as art.

  15. d exe

    the blue lady mailbox is so cool.

  16. Jaqi Mugo

    I like the shack! So many bandas at our hotels here in Kenya look like that, it would fit right in!!!

    R2D2 rocks too, I like it!

    Would you mistake the blue lady for a thief at night?

  17. Rubber Cheese

    I’m loving the microwave mailbox. Absolute genius. I wander if they have hotmail?

    (sorry i couldnt resist!)

  18. The Smith Boy

    Looks like everybody with a scatter gun has taken a shot at that Hammer Mailbox.

  19. BigAl

    Very cool mailboxes.
    Don’t have a particular favorite, but I enjoy the creativity.

  20. josh

    haha just stopped by your site, my class project at the moment is ‘create a visual responese to ‘mail box”.. i was looking for inspiration… don’t know if my teacher would be happy if i just converted a keg!

  21. André

    The turtle looks like morton koopa

  22. Frank Stallone

    The Microwave Mailbox isn’t creative, the guy lost his mailbox and had a dead microwave! lol these are pretty hilarious.

  23. vivian

    I really like the blue lady ones… :)

  24. Rosanne Trabucco

    Love the camera one…..My husband is a camera buff.

  25. zackey

  26. Raads

    2 words: gun mailbox :)

    hold on, is that three?

  27. kerry

    Hey Rubber Cheese, the Hotmail joke was bad. They obviously like to Micro manage their business.

  28. mickey mouse

    i am in love with the giraffe one!!!!!!!

  29. rebeca

    the blue lady is funny

  30. John

    i now want to be a mailman.

  31. DJB

    The grass shack is extravagant, but the newspaper is on the ground!

  32. Kerri

    The log cabin for sure! Near our cabin, in northern Mich., a neighbor has a “traditonal” log cabin mailbox,and the logs are rounded off. Tin roof. Neat.

  33. grandjem

    Our snowplow won’t knock the giraffe over. Who took the mannequin from what store? Oh, it was outdated.

  34. Jan kajander

    Does anyone know of a automatic mailbox, that opens the letter, ocr scans it, filters it (configurationable), againts known names that sends out reminders despite existing lawyer to sort of old debth, and takes out advertisments and does the extracting out the important matters, keeping track of dates, etc like a total crm system in a box, with associated recycling heat my home system as well?
    ask lawyer judicium.no for evidence of the amount of papers in life today… it is kilometers. so it must be a sellable product.

  35. Bob Smith

    WEIRD…But somewhat funny and cool.

  36. Pam

    and I thought putting a miniture wheelbarrow on top of MY mailbox was ‘cute’… (because I’m a gardener…) Oh well, now I’m thinking that I’m going to have to create a much better ‘gardener’ mailbox…. Most of these are great – the ones that just ‘create’ out of junk – like the microwave – not so good. But then, they are recycling, so that’s a good thing.
