Crew has been treated to his fair share of Bluum boxes since he arrived (it’s how we discovered the only pacifier he loved – the Natursutten, which I talked about here!), and I’ve always loved the quality of the contents. Offered on an ongoing monthly basis, or as a short-term subscription, these are great baby/shower gifts, or just something to treat yourself and Baby to, each month.
I like to think I have my finger on the pulse of the baby market (read: I shop wayyyy too much), but there is always a new brand or product (or both!) that I learn about via these boxes. Unlike several sample-sized subscription boxes, I love that this particular box includes full-size products, recommended by real moms, created by brands who are actively looking for ongoing feedback from parents (and babies!).
You can opt to be surprised with items pre-selected for you (customized to both age and gender), or in a NEW development since we last Bluumed, you can customize the box yourself and select your products!
This time around, I was able to team up with Bluum to offer a review of Crew’s 16 month box! I took advantage of the “customize my own box” option, but while I loved knowing I was getting my very top choices, I did miss the element of surprise when it arrived. To give you a taste of what you can expect in a typical month, here’s a rundown of what was included in Crew’s box:
As he’s learning to wield a fork and spoon, the baby spoons we’ve been using to feed Crew are too long-handled for him to use himself, but the others with metal spoon/fork pieces are still too sharp when he jams them into his mouth too quickly. These will be perfect for this stage as he learns control to feed himself. Link here for $10.07 — but I’ve seen sets of these in Target for less than half that price!
Kid-O mini go car
ANY car is okay in Crew’s book, but I’ve had my eye on these forever — I love the sturdy, uncomplicated construction, and it’s very crawler-friendly!
I would have gotten a shot of JUST the car…but someone called dibs the second he saw it inside. Retails for $10.34.
Boon SNUG straws
I LOVE anything Boon makes, from the sleek un-babyish design, to clever functionality, to its enduring quality. I could give a rave review to every single product of theirs we’ve purchased. When I saw I could select one of their newest products, I didn’t hesitate. Crew uses both spout and straw style sippy cups, so he had no trouble using these, and I love that in a pinch at a restaurant, I don’t need to have a whole cup on hand to improvise a drink for him. Retails for $11.98.
Bumkins reusable snack bag
I was gifted a bag similar to this one while expecting, and it gets used all. the. time. I loved the design on this one, and can already think of a hundred uses for it, aside from Goldfish snack storage in my purse. It would be great to hold sunscreen in our pool bag this summer, or the stash of baby meds I keep in my car as backup when we’re out and about. Plus, in a pinch, it can always double as a way to contain a dirty onesie until you can get it home to wash! Retails for $8.44.
A total success in our book! To gift a Bluum box subscription to someone (or yourself!) you can do so here.
