Bookawoo Opening Kids to a World of Imagination

I have been so excited to review Lillibug's Bookawoo delivery since it arrived at the door! First I'll begin by saying that I came across Bookawoo Monthly Children's Book Subscription on Twitter a few months ago. When we started chatting they offered to send me the first box for free, and of course I said yes. We are book mad in this house and Lillibug treasures books as much as we do.


Even the postman that delivered it was asking me about it saying the packaging caught his attention! It certainly caught my attention, because even though addressed to me, on the other side it was personlised for Lillibug which I thought was a lovely touch. I was surprised by the box as it's not what you see on their website so it got me even more intrigued. I waited until Lillibug finished school so she could be the one to open it........


When she opened the box it was once again personlised with a quote from Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka (yes I'm a sucker for personlisation, but it just shows the thought that went into this box). Once you peel back the tissue paper and bubble wrap at the sides you are greeted with the "treasure" as Lillibug said....


So inside there were 4 beautiful books of the highest quality tailored to Lillibug's age group. Three of the books were hardback and one paperback. Also a personlised bookmark and personlised stickers (see, there we go again with the personlisation! They keep reeling me in).





It was wonderful to see that an Easter book was included with Easter coming up shortly and this has been Lillibug's go to book at the moment as she can find eggs behind little hidden flaps. I found her yesterday reading "The River: The Epic Journey to the Sea" and tonight we will move on to one of the other books from the box.

The subscription service gets a big thumbs from me, I love that an Irish company is bringing something wonderful like this to our kids to stimulate our kids brains, bring them a world of imagination and give them the love of reading.

The service costs €29.95 a month, you can skip a month or cancel anytime. At the moment they have an offer on to get a discount for life if you sign up and you will pay €24.95 (offer closes on the 31st of March). The subscription box would not only make a great monthly surprise for your child but also make a beautiful one off gift for any age of child. Each box is tailored to your child's age and a theme each month. The contents will vary each month with goodies consisting of bookmarks, stickers, prints, toys, accessories and more. Now I done a bit of digging and from the usual websites I buy books from all 4 books would have cost me a whopping €42+, so I say the Bookawoo subscription would make a great saving for us in the long run. They deliver here in Ireland and to the UK.

  1. Oh my gosh this is so cute! If I ever have children, this is the subscription box I'll sign them up to at birth. I absolutely love this. I found a great YA fiction book subscription box, but it's based in America and was working out at over 40€ to ship to Ireland for one book per month (and some goodies). I had to pass sadly. Hopefully books become the new beauty box! x

    1. I think the saving I made was great, not sure I could afford it every month. Great that you can skip a month though and books are the present for any child x

  3. Oof I was with you until I got to the price but it looks amazing and hopefully more and more companies start doing it! You'd have a fairly amazing library built up even just subbing for a year, it'd be a lovely gift for a baby x

    1. We need a book subscription for us now :-) Price is a little up there up I'm delighted with the saving I made on this box. I've ordered April box and then I might skip a month or two as I couldn't spend that every month on books for Lillibug xx
