Bookroo Subscription Box Review – October 2015
Bookroo is a new book subscription service for young children. Each month, they deliver a handful of books to feed your child’s love for reading. They offer two subscriptions: Board Books for smaller children aged 0-3 (3 books) and Picture Books for young readers aged 2-6 (2 books).
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Bookroo – Board Books
The Cost: $19.99+ free shipping in US (less with 3/6 month subscriptions)
The Products: 3 Board Books
Ships to: US (contact Support for International shipping fees)
This subscription doesn’t include insert/product cards, but I just love the little notes they write for their little subbies inside the box.
William and Abigail are still reading board books. Periodically, I let them read children books that I’ve picked up from library sales and so far none of them have survived. I’m starting to think they just like the sound of paper ripping. Each book comes gift wrapped which is great if you had already planned to gift this box.
Where’s Boo? by Salina Yoon – Value: $6.99
How appropriate for the season!! The kiddos hear this story often at library story time, but we didn’t own it. We loved reading it together and pointing out different treats and costumes. It’s the perfect un-scary Halloween book.
How Many Kisses Do You Want Tonight? by Varsha Bajaj – Value: $6.99
I thought this counting night time story was cute, but honestly this didn’t hold my kids attention. I think it’s due to the artwork. A lot of the animals blended in with each other or the background and I think it was too much for them to figure out what they were looking at.
Dive In! by April Jones Prince – Value: $7.95
This was William’s favorite book. It’s really cute, the little mice appeared to be working hard at a construction site, but they are actually getting a big bath prepared. LOL. It’s just adorable and it’s got finger-sliding parts for the kids to pretend along with the mice team. It’s great.
Verdict: This box has an estimated retail value around $22.00. It’s just over the asking price if you have a monthly subscription. I don’t mind paying close to retail for this box, or the fact that you could probably find any of these books online for a tad cheaper. The team at Bookroo has consistently picked out books that my family loves and can read over and over again, and that’s priceless.
What did you think of Bookroo? What books do you remember reading over and over again as a child or reading with your kids today?
