WHAT IS IT?
Bluum is a monthly subscription box for baby/toddler and mother products for $24.95. They recently expanded their service and now offer up to 3 years. The boxes contain full sized products and are supposed to be valued over $50. You can earn points by reviewing the products in your box and work towards a free month. But it does take a long time and the website is wonky. I’ve never been able to get the reviews to work for me.
WHAT DID I GET?
Bluum was definitely experiencing some growing pains. These was the second month shipping was extremely delayed. It was disappointing, but they seem to be back on track for this month. But once our box arrived, I was pretty happy with it.
- Pure Bar Pure Organic – $2.19
- Babyganics Apple-Berry Lip Balm – $3.99
- Babybug magazine – $5.67
- Dapple Dishwashing soap travel size – $1.99
- Melissa and Doug Birthday Bear Press and Spin game – $6.99
- Make Believe Ideas Mix and Match Opposites book – $6.99
- Play-Doh Mini 4 Pack – $13.00
- Gogo Squeeze Food Pouch – $1.00
The Pure Organics bar is a little treat for mom. I’ve had these blueberry bars before and they are quite yummy. My daughter likes these pouches, so she’ll be happy to eat this.
When I saw the price for the Play-Doh, I thought “no way is it $13!” But I did a search on Amazon and it was $11.92. So I guess it is right! It is more expensive than the bigger cans of Play-Doh. Mind boggling. Sorry, got a little sidetracked. Anyways, Play-Doh is always fun. Kaylee only has a couple colors so she’ll be happy to expand her collection.
We received a similar Melissa & Doug game (Press and Spin Bingo) in our February box. It was a huge hit in our house, but I’m a little disappointed we received something similar. Plus Kaylee isn’t really at the point where she would do a color-by-numbers type thing. So I will either keep this for when she is older, or I will use it as a birthday present for another kiddo!
Books are always welcome. We have a few of these Babybugs from other boxes and they are always fun. As for the book, Kaylee loves animals so anything with animals is popular. I love these for the car because they keep her fairly entertained and board books hold up well in the car.
I like the idea of kid friendly lip balm. I’ll just need to remember to not let Kaylee have full access. She MAY have a lip gloss problem. Also, I liked the dish soap. It is great for traveling and camping.
So while I was frustrated with the shipping issues and their website has bugs, I was pretty happy with my box overall.
