bluum is one of my favorite boxes to open every month. Unlike most of the other “baby/kid” boxes, I never really know what’s going to be inside this one. The contents are based on the age of your kiddo, and boxes tend to vary a LOT. So it pretty much remains a mystery until it reaches my doorstep. (And I LOVE me some mystery boxes!)
For those who aren’t aware, bluum is a monthly subscription box for babies & kiddos from birth through age 5. Each box contains 5 or more products that are responsibly sourced, eco-friendly and often organic.
There used to be monthly “themes”, but they’ve moved away from that and instead curate each box based upon your child’s current age in months. bluum also recently joined forces with Stork Stack, so anyone who had a subscription with them (Stork Stack) will now be receiving boxes from bluum instead.
My girls are currently 23 months old, so the bluum box I received was for 24 months. Okay, let’s see what was in the big red box this time!
“The Ants Go Marching!” Book & CD by Child’s Play – This is a colorful book with sturdy pages and neat cut-out “holes” throughout. Little ones can watch as the ants multiply from one little guy in the beginning, to a big parade of 100 ants by the end of the story. The “holes” represent puddles of water from the rain that’s got them all marching down to the ground to seek shelter from. There’s also an audio cd that plays a sing-a-long version of the song, as well as a karaoke one. (Ha. That totally made me picture a bunch of drunken old men singing this at a bar.) (Amazon Price: $5.39)
Animal Sounds Match Up Game & Puzzle – I love this! It’s a “2-in-1” card game and puzzle featuring animals and the sounds they make. It includes 24 picture cards that can be used for a matching/memory game, then flip them over to build a floor puzzle. My girls are slowly starting to recognize different animals, so this is great for us to practice. (Amazon Price: $8.99)
Tokyo Baby Cafe Shampoo – (Forgive the poor photo quality. The light-colored label/text was super hard to focus on.) I’ve never heard of this brand, but apparently it’s a popular “mommy & me” hair care line in Japan. It’s tear-free and doesn’t contain any parabens, sulfates, dyes, or artificial fragrances. It comes out as a foam (love foam soaps!) and has a light, orange scent. It’s also a nice size — 10.14 ounces! (Amazon Price: $13.99)
Boogie Wipes – Good thing we love Boogie Wipes! — We’ve gotten these in a ton of boxes lately. I’m definitely not complaining. These are great at getting the “crusties” off my girl’s faces and I love that they’re gentle on their skin. (Amazon Price: roughly $2.25 for one pack)
Green Sprouts Compressed Wipes – I had no idea what these were at first, but now I LOVE them! They’re little capsules that turn into wipes when you add a bit of water to them. So cool! The wipes are a nice size (8.25″ x 7.5″) and are made from plants too! The travel tube hold 10 capsules, and 20 are included in this set. An awesome product to throw in your bag so you always have wipes handy without taking up precious space! (Amazon Price: $6.19)
Once again, I’m pretty happy with my bluum box. It was nice to get a couple favorites (Boogie Wipes & a book) and also be introduced to new brands/products. All totaled, the items in my box have a retail/Amazon value of $36.81. Not quite as high as last month’s packed box, but still a higher value than the cost of the box itself.

I’ve been getting a little sick of Citrus Lane as of late. I wonder if I should maybe give Bluum a try. I’ve heard a lot of negative things though. Have those changed since the merging with Stork Stack?
Honestly, I heard a lot of the negative stuff before I signed up too, but figured I’d give it a try. I’ve been subscribed since February and I’ve never had a problem with them. The boxes are always a good value and I really haven’t had any complaints. 🙂
