February bluum time!
If you’re not aware, bluum is a monthly subscription box for babies & kiddos from birth through age 5. Each box contains four 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 there are many variations in the boxes that are sent in each shipment. (I don’t think I’ve seen any two boxes that were exactly the same.)
bluum (yes, with a lowercase b) now gives you the option to choose the exact items that you’ll receive in your box! When you log into your account you’ll be given a chance to pick one item from each of the available categories for that month’s box (food, toys, books, etc). If you’d rather be surprised, you can forgo picking and have them choose the items as they did in the past. They also give you the choice of opting out of the “mom” items, which I love because I kinda hated getting things for myself in a kid’s box. 😉
Subscriptions are $34/month or less with multi-month commitments. For a limited time, you can save $10 on your first month with coupon code “MRVA286CCE“.
My girls are currently 41 months old (remember — they go by months), so the bluum box I received was geared towards a 42 month (3 1/2 year) old child.
Let’s see what’s in my February 2016 bluum box!
The big red box!
A peek inside. It looks kinda Valentine-y, but that’s actually bluum’s year-round packaging. 😉
As always, there’s no printed info card… just a generic insert indicating the current month and age range of your child. Once your box is delivered, you’ll be able to log in to your account and view a list of its contents on their site. Since I chose the items myself, I knew exactly what would be in the box.
Melissa & Doug Wooden Shape Magnets ($11.49) – I love Melissa & Doug products, so I was happy to add this set to our collection. The wooden storage box holds 25 wooden magnets in various shapes and colors. It features simple shapes such as circles, stars, and squares to more challenging ones like quatrefoils, curvilinear triangles, and parallelograms.
Crocodile Creek Flower Princess Puzzle ($9.99) – A cute 24-piece puzzle that features a pretty flower princess scene. My kiddos have been all about princesses lately (mainly pretending to be one), so I figured this was appropriate. Plus, there’s roses in the background. 😉
Peaceable Kingdom Go Fish! Card Game ($6.99) – The girls are starting to reach the age where they can begin playing games with simple rules. This Go Fish! card game is a great one to start with since the rules are easy enough to understand and it doesn’t take too long to get through. The illustrations are fun and I love that the box seals shut with a piece of velcro — perfect to take on the go.
Rich Frog Owl Flashlight ($12.90) – I believe I chose a different style flashlight in a past bluum box, so I chose this one so that the girls would each have their own. It features a colorful owl design and comes with its own batteries. Yay for that!
Peaceable Kingdom Tiny Town Village Sticker Kit (~$5) – I couldn’t find this exact set on Amazon, so I linked a similar one. Anywhooo… This is an adorable “decorate & play” tiny town village sticker set that includes 3 pop-up paper buildings and 53 stickers. I have a feeling my kiddos are going to LOVE this, so I think I’ll save it for a surprise when they’ve been extra good. 😉
What a fun bluum box! I love getting to choose the products that I think my girls will most enjoy. While I do like a good mystery box (that kinda goes without saying), it’s also nice to open a box already knowing that I’ll be 100% happy with everything inside. February’s total retail value (using Amazon prices) is just over $46. Another great box! 🙂
