Lillypost July 2020 "Camping" Review


Lillypost always sends us a set of Finnley the Fox stickers along with a little note that introduces their coloring contest for the month. Kids can draw directly on the box and incorporate Finnley into the monthly theme, then share it on social media for a chance to win a prize. This month’s theme is "Camping" and they had some fun facts about things related to camping!


Everybody Needs a Buddy by Ellen Jackson - Retail Value $7.99 (found here for $6.99)

This month's board book was a fun one! My children love animals and this silly book included plenty of them! This rhyming book featured colorful pictures along with rhyming text that gave the message that everyone can be friends despite their differences. These lines about friendship also included a few fun animal facts thrown in for some educational tidbits. This book was a hit with all three of my kids!


Grumpy Monkey by Suzanne Lang - Retail Value $17.99 (found here for $10.62)

Jim Panzee (ha!) is a monkey who woke up just a bit grumpy. He's in denial that he's grumpy until all of his animal friends keep pointing out the ways that he's grumpy and he finally snaps. His frustration with his friends helps him admit that he might be just a bit grumpy, but his friends help him feel just a bit better. This book is great for those times when kids (or adults) are just in a mood and letting them know it's okay to feel grumpy, but the way you react to it is what matters. I think this book could help some grumpy kiddos snap out of it! This book also has some great illustrations and lots of animals that may help bring a smile to your face if you get the grumps!


Lizzy McTizzy and the Busy Dizzy Day by Sarah Weeks - Retail Value $17.99 (found here for $14.79)

This book was a really fun, silly rhyming story about a girl who can't find her other shoe. Some of the lines felt like tongue-twisters which added to the fun and whimsy of it. Lizzy is a fun character and the adventure of trying to locate her shoe contains a lot of prepositional words (in, under, behind) that would be a great segway into learning about them! This book also has a good message about being yourself even if it means your shoes don't match! I think all kids can relate to the premise of not being able to find something of theirs...at least I know my kids can relate!

Verdict: This month's Lillypost books were some more great ones! There was a nice variety that I felt was perfectly balanced for my kids of varying ages and genders! They all really appealed to my kids and were full of great characters and just the right amount of silliness. The total retail value of our books came to $43.97 ($32.40 with sale prices) which is pretty good for a $24.90 ($19.95 + $4.95 shipping) box!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the August box, although it is possible you may get these books in a future box!

Value Breakdown: At $24.90 ($19.95 a month + $4.95 shipping) for this box, here’s what you are paying approximately per item:

  • Everybody Needs a Buddy: $4.52
  • Grumpy Monkey: $10.19
  • Lizzy McTizzy: $10.19
