If you’re new here, 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. I really love this about bluum, since I’m never really sure just what I’ll see when I open their big red box.
My girls are currently 27 months old, so the bluum box I received was for 28 months.
What was in the box? Let’s see!
The Adventurers Board Book ($4.99) – I’m always happy to get new books for the girls. This one tells the tale of a little girl who, along with her favorite toys, goes on a series of adventures. There’s a new adventure on each page and the book ends with the girl falling asleep with her toys, wiped out from all their travels.
Smarty Pants Adult Gummy Vitamins ($32.99) – While I appreciate the fact that this is a high-value item, I don’t appreciate that it’s for ADULTS. An occasional “mom gift” is cool, but when it’s the highest value item in the box, ehhh… Not so much. (Especially since this contains gelatin and I won’t be able to get any use out of it anyway.) It’s a quality product, but NOT for a kid’s box. Total bummer, bluum.
PuzzlePatch Peek-a-Boo Carnival Puzzle ($6.77) – A cute puzzle with little “lift-the-flap” pieces hidden throughout. My girls love both puzzles and lift-the-flap books, so this should be a hit.
Boogie Mist ($7.00) – We love Boogie Mist in this house, so this is always good to get. That said, we have like 2 or 3 floating around from past subscription boxes so I wasn’t too excited to see this. It does work well and it’ll save me from having to buy more when we run out, so I guess I can’t complain.
While the total value this month (using Amazon prices) was an impressive $51.75, a big chunk of it was for the (adult) vitamins. Without the vitamins, the total is $18.76. Not quite as impressive. This is actually the first time that I wasn’t thrilled with my bluum box. All of the ones I’ve gotten in the past have been great, so getting one so disappointing was… well, disappointing. Hopefully this was just an off month and December’s box makes up for it. My fingers are crossed.
