One product type that Matt and I have tried many of is teethers. We know William is definitely teething and try all we can to help him with the associated pain relief. Still, despite trying a Teething Egg and Organic Teething Toys, we hadn’t found one that was perfect for him. So, I was definitely skeptical of the Little Teether toy that was part of William’s Bluum boy this month. I was intrigued that it came in a soft, reusable pouch, perfect for keeping the toy clean when transporting in a bag.
This week’s book review is of Panda Pals, another concept book with few words. On the front is a large panda with bright eyes and a head that can be felt and squished by little baby hands.
As anyone who has read a few entries on this blog knows, I make sure to take lots of photos to document the progression of my pregnancy. I hadn’t yet bought any props to document baby growing for photos, so it was with eagerness that I spotted the Mess-Ups and Moments card pack from Tiny Beans in the Bluum box I received last week.
I received the July Bluum Box and inside three items had pink as a color in them and the fourth item and wrapping was a red shade. The presentation of the box was just beautiful and one of my first thoughts opening this was how two items inside were similar to items that had been on my Amazon baby gift registry – the chewable teething necklace and the nursing scarf.
As I’ve mentioned on my Walmart Baby Box Overview I had previously been a member of makeup monthly sample boxes. As a mom to be I’d seen many references on websites to Bluum, a company that has subscriptions of boxes for pregnancy to moms of children up to five years old. My research showed the company had changed a lot, raising the price to current $34 a month (though options for cheaper 6 month and 1 year subscriptions are offered), and though once allowing customers to choose the contents of their box, now they are selected for them (a much more common model for subscription box based companies.
The site asks for details on gender and age of the child and from this I knew that as a result of my child being in utero I would be getting a more generic box than a parent would. As a new subscriber I had to wait a bit to get this the June box in July.
