Lillypost is a monthly book subscription box for children that donates one book to a child in need for every box purchased. They offer three subscription options:

  • The Board Book Box - 4 books for ages 0-3,
  • The Picture Book Box - 3 books for ages 4-7, and
  • The Mixed Book Box - 2 picture books and 1 board book for all ages.

This review is of the Mixed Book Box for $19.95 per month + $4.95 shipping. This option includes board books and picture books for families with children in both age ranges.

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)

You can choose to have your books wrapped each month for an extra $5 per shipment. Having the books wrapped and ready to open makes it feel like a special experience each month!

First Impressions

Sea turtles and race cars seemed like perfect themes for my kiddos this month! We were eager to read the stories upon opening them!

Inside the Lillypost November 2021 Box

 

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 they shared some fun facts about music!

Peek-a-Boo Treetop Friends by Susie Brooks - Retail Value $12.95 (found here for $5.99)

 

This book is probably a bit too young for my children, but they still loved it with all of the colorful illustrations, adorable animals, and a few different textures throughout. The story itself was simple with instructions for the kids like "pat their fur" or asking them "who will we see?" making it a great interactive book to read to baby and a fun way to get some tactile play in! I know our next baby will love it when he is old enough.

Sock on the Loose by Conor McGlaufin - Retail Value $18.99 (found here for $16.99)

 

I love the concept of this book, I mean everyone has socks that go missing, and sometimes they do come back, but this book is a fun little story about where the socks might go when they are missing from your drawer. I loved the beautiful watercolor illustrations and while it was a cute book, it didn't flow as well for me as I would have liked and it didn't grab my five-year-old's attention the way stories normally do. We might have to give it another read and see what we think again, especially after seeing what great reviews people are giving it!

The Christmas Extravaganza Hotel by Tracey Corderoy - Retail Value $16.99

 

My kids are ready for the holidays and winter and snow, so this book was an exciting one to receive. I really loved this story, which was quite a bit lengthier than our other books, but it had a lot of interesting things going on and wonderful illustrations to support our story. Frog has seen a pamphlet for the Christmas Extravaganza and he shows up at Bear's house expecting one, but they soon realize he read his map upside down and has ended up in the wrong place. Bear decides to do his best to show him a good time and while it wasn't quite what he was expecting, Frog finds that sometimes things can be even better than what you planned for! I think it was a nice story about disappointment and expectations, and there can definitely be a great lesson in there for kids about appreciating what you have and not letting those expectations ruin your experiences. Plus, it's just a fun Christmas book!

Just an FYI - we opt to receive the seasonal books from Lillypost, but if you prefer to leave them out of your shipments, you have that option!

Value - Is it Worth It?

The Cost: $19.95 per month + $4.95 shipping. Save with longer subscriptions.

Value Breakdown:

  • Peek-a-boo Treetop: $12.95
  • Sock on the Loose: $18.99
  • The Christmas Extravaganza Hotel: $16.99

The total retail value of the books we received comes to $48.93 which is a savings of about $24.03 since we only paid $24.90 for this box. I love the value we get in this box!
