Little Bookish Wardrobe May 2019 Review

This is My Dollhouse by Giselle Potter - Retail Value $17.99 (Found here for $12.59)

This book is the inspiration for the rest of our box. My daughter and I both really enjoyed it! The book begins with a girl describing a dollhouse that she has made from a cardboard box. She describes the way she plays with her dolls and details some of the unique ways she has repurposed everyday items into pieces for her dollhouse, such as an elevator made from a cup. At a playdate, she realizes that her dollhouse is quite different from her friend's dollhouse and so is her way of playing. But soon, both friends join in on the adventure and appreciate the unique world that's been created. The girl in the story really reminded me of my daughter, who is great at imaginative and inventive play like this. My daughter loves her own dollhouse, so she was very engaged in the story!

I did see on social media that several books were sent out without their book jackets—ours happened to be one of them. Normally, this is not a huge deal, but this book jacket featured some really cute instructions for how to make your own dollhouse from a cardboard box just like the girl in the story! While it was a bummer that the book my daughter and I received didn't have a cover, I think we can easily follow the instructions that I captured from an Instagram story.

This card poses several questions to ask your child about the book. It's a great tool for checking my child's understanding and engaging her in some critical thinking about the story. The card also described some activities for us to do with the items we received in our box.

In the story, the girl made fried eggs for her dolls each morning. So Little Bookish Wardrobe provided my daughter and I with our own eggs to cut out and serve. How cute! These eggs were a great tie-in to the story that my daughter loved!

Pink and Gold Polka Dot Dress

The girl in the story wears a pink polka-dot dress. The box included one for my daughter, so that she can pretend to be a part of the story.

Pink Rose Hair Clip

The girl in the story also wears a flower in her hair. This pink flower hair clip was the perfect accent to my daughter's little dress!

She really loved her costume! The dress was a bit short on her, since she is so very tall for her age. It will still make a great dress-up dress!

Paper Doll and Clothes

This paper doll sheet includes several different dresses and accessories for my daughter to cut out. She was so excited to do this activity and cut everything out all by herself.

3D Puzzle Pink House - Retail Value $14.99

The last item in the box was this really fun and unique 3D dollhouse puzzle. I have never seen anything like this before, but it was so cute! My daughter and I had a lot of fun putting it together. She was thrilled to be able to make her own dollhouse just like the one in the story!

There were four different sheets with many different pieces to pop out. My daughter got to work separating them out while I figured out our next steps!

All of the pieces were numbered so it was just a matter of matching up the numbers and folding where necessary. It was definitely a little tricky, but the detail of this puzzle was so perfect and cute!

There were so many little details on every side. The doors and windows even opened!

One side even had this cute little balcony and pots of flowers. 

My daughter was so proud when we finished the house and she had her cut up paper doll and eggs to play with. She disappeared up to her room for quite a long time to play with all of her new toys!

Verdict: This month's box from Little Bookish Wardrobe was SO good! The story was perfect for my daughter, and I was blown away by all of the fun items they sent to go along with it! The outfit is adorable and fun, and I love that they didn't leave out that cute little flower. I am also happy they included the little details like the fried eggs, too! My daughter's favorite items were definitely the dollhouse and the paper dolls to go with it, but I know she really loved everything! This month, I definitely think that what we got was worth the $40.99 ($32.99 a month plus $8.00 shipping) cost of the box, because we had such a fantastic experience!

I have been reviewing boxes for MSA since January 2018 and have reviewed everything from activity and clothing boxes for kids to clothing, beauty, and pampering boxes for women. I have also reviewed boxes focused on home goods and even some men's boxes with the help of my husband! 

I love to discover new brands and try new things!

Wow! This looks like such a well curated box at a great price for what all you get. Your daughter looks adorable as always! The dress is a bit short on her but because that frilly white layer hangs down a little it makes the dress look a bit longer. It definitely doesn’t look to short to wear out if she ends up getting attached to it! 😄

Yes, the dress is much too short on her, but to be fair, she is about 2 sizes larger than the average 4 year old! haha. We have turned this into a “dress-up” dress! 🙂

My tall-for-her-age 6YO niece puts leggings, capris and bicycle shorts under everything. She would wear this with white leggings.
