Lillypost June 2021 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 we talked about all things having to do with the sky!

 

A is for Apple by Tiger Tales – Retail Value $7.95 (on sale for $4.01)

This book is just perfect for my 3-year-old! It’s a great tactile way to teach him the alphabet and letter recognition with the interactive little cutouts that he can trace with his fingers. There are also cute little flaps to open for even more fine motor skill development and a fun element of surprise!

 

Made by Maxine by Ruth Spiro – Retail Value $17.99

Maxine loves to invent and create, especially when it comes to designing things for her pet fish! When she finds out her class is having a pet parade she can’t wait to bring him in, but when the other kids tease her about how he won’t be able to march like their pets will, she faces a challenge. She tinkers and designs and redesigns until she comes up with the perfect solution! This was a fun book that is inspiring and it is littered with new, exciting words that will be great at expanding your child’s vocabulary and teaching them about perseverance!

 

The Box Turtle by Vanessa Roeder – Retail Value $17.99 (found here for $13.40)

This last book was our favorite this month! We just love turtles and this adorable turtle who was born without a shell is just too cute and very endearing. This poor turtle is given a box as his shell, but soon the other turtles notice he is different and begin to remark unkindly about his “shell.” This leads him on a journey to find himself a new shell which is sometimes quite silly and also leads to him making some new friends. This story is just as endearing as the cute little turtle and we had a lot of fun reading this one!

Verdict: What another cute bunch of books from Lillypost this month! They always seem to send us something that is ideal for each one of my kiddos even though they are all at varying ages and have diverse interests. This sub is so consistently enjoyable and value-wise, it always does well, too. This box costs $24.90 ($19.95 + $4.95 shipping) and the total retail value of our books come to $43.93 which is a pretty great deal!

To Wrap Up: 

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

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

  • A is for Apple: $4.50
  • Made by Maxine: $10.20
  • The Box Turtle: $10.20

Brandi has loved the idea of subscription boxes since joining Birchbox in 2013. Now that she’s a mother of 3, she loves finding unique boxes to educate and entertain her kids while enjoying some more pampering boxes for herself. Her favorites these days are Lillypost, KiwiCo boxes & Wicked Good Perfume!

When I saw Maxine, I laughed. Remember the older lady Maxine, who was in several memes and jokes…always sarcastically funny? I had to view the image of this Maxine, since that seemed weird for a children’s book. Lol.

Haha I’m sure that would be a funny book…but maybe not appropriate for kids! 🤣
