Okay, so I *thought* I had successfully canceled my bluum account already, but clearly I didn’t. When I received their “sorry to see you go” email, I assumed that meant it was a done deal. Um, nope. Turns out there was another link in there that I had to click to REALLY, officially cancel my subscription. Psssh.
Anywhooo, if you’re not aware, bluum is a monthly subscription box for babies & kiddos from birth through age 5. Each box contains five or more products that are responsibly sourced, eco-friendly and often organic. The contents are based on the age of your kiddo in months, so boxes tend to vary a LOT.
My girls are currently 32(?) months old, so the bluum box I received was geared towards a 33 month old child.
Let’s see what’s in my April bluum box!
I wasn’t expecting to see this guy on my porch again anytime soon.
I do like that they got rid of the ten pounds of paper squigglies and opted for a simple layer of tissue paper instead.
As always, there’s no printed info card… just a generic insert indicating the month. Once your box is delivered, they email you a list of its contents. You can also find it when you login to their site (again, after the box is delivered.)
Melissa & Doug Sea Creatures Peg Puzzle ($7.99) – My girls LOVE Melissa & Doug puzzles and we surprisingly don’t have this one yet. As soon as I unwrapped it, they both took turns putting it together and we practiced naming all of the sea creatures.
Goodbyn Bento ($12.09) – We’ve gotten a couple of these from other subscription boxes, but they’re handy so I don’t mind getting more. This one comes with 3 separate food compartments and has a built-in carrying strap. Like all Goodbyn products, it’s BPA-free, dishwasher-safe, and totally recyclable.
Urban Trend Build-a-Meal Monkey Set ($14.95) – This is a 4-piece plate set with removable components/compartments. The 4 different pieces can be used separately, or together to form the monkey face as shown in the photo. It’s BPA-free and dishwasher safe.
Jean Pierre Cosmetics Foaming Facial Cleanser ($6.99) – I guess they have an option now to let you opt out of getting “mom gifts”. If I would have known I had a box coming, I definitely would have done just that. I don’t mind getting an occasional “mom” product in a kid’s box, but not when they’re full size and 1 of just 4 items in the box. I don’t switch up my facial cleanser too often (ever), but my husband actually said he’d use this since his current face wash is running out. So, not a total loss. 😉
I’m not super disappointed that I got this last bluum box before my subscription was actually canceled, but I’m also not super sad that I won’t be getting more. The total value of the items this month (using Amazon prices) comes to about $42, which is definitely more than the monthly cost. That said, I’m a little bummed that they included two products that pretty much do the same thing (the food dividers). Plus, I wish I had a chance to opt out of the mom gift. Ah well.
