The professor did not tell us what the mailing is, only that he was disappointed in it compared to the crate. I would think that any mailing in any of the experiences would inevitably disappoint compared to the contents of the crate.
I do wish there was a bit more to this mailing, but it did answer a lingering question I had. Also, compared to the Century Beast (the only other experience I have received), I feel like this experience was, overall, more satisfying.
From all I read here, this might be the only Experience I am not eager to send - it sounds to me like you need at least one child of just the right age in the recipient household to get the most out of the Experience.
For the record, under the right circumstances I would consider purchasing The Century Beast again. Yes, they ever so slightly oversold it and yes, the overarching narrative could have been tighter, but personally, I still found it a largely satisfying Experience with a great conclusion nd a beautiful artifact.

The first package arrived yesterday (Halloween!), addressed to my three children, aged 13, 11, and 9. My wife is suspicious enough that she might need to be brought into the fold. It isn't really on my younger kids' radar, but my eldest was up late last night pouring over the materials. She thinks it's strange, but delightful. She laments the fact that there's no return address to write the sender back. She's already interested in researching things online, which I'm trying to low-key encourage. I'm excited to see where this goes!
I might note that the experience seems to be focused on young female recipients because of the style of handwriting, stickers, and general overall "look" of the materials (and the protagonist is a girl). Or has someone else already come to that conclusion and I am merely being redundant?
She laments the fact that there's no return address to write the sender back.
From what I have gathered so far - I have sent two Experiences with a third one about to be concluded - people are often a bit stymied at the lack of interactivity. Not every one of my recipients was equally intrigued by the packages, but all of them were uncertain at one point or another if any action on their part was required.
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
