Bluum review - April 2014

In case you've never heard of Bluum, it's a monthly subscription box for babies/toddlers. You pay for a certain number of months and you get a box every month with 4-5 items geared towards your child's age and gender. The more months you sign up for, the cheaper it is. I found a great deal that was $40 for three months, so about $13 per box. 

 Everything we got in our April box.

Booginhead Sippi Grip: At first I wasn't too happy we got these but now I'm actually kind of excited, I think they will come in handy. They aren't just for sippy cups, you can attach it to toys too. Whenever we go out to dinner, Olivia throws her toys on the floor, now we can just attach it to this and we won't have to worry about her toys hitting the floor and getting dirty. Retails for: $8 (I couldn't find the two pack so I estimated).

Melissa & Doug Peek-a-Boo Panda: This toy is very cute but it's for 9 months+, a bit young for Liv. It doesn't really do anything but it's cute and she likes it. Retails for: $7.99

I Play Disposable Compressed Wipes: I was confused about these at first, I thought the tube was used to make the wipes wet but it's just to carry them. You add water to the tablet and it turns into a wet wipe. This will be put in the diaper bag, it's good because it doesn't take up as much room as regular wipes. They are antibacterial and hypoallergenic, always a plus. Retails for: $4.50

Klorane Dry Shampoo: I don't think I'll be using this, maybe I'll try it but I don't really care for dry shampoo. It never makes my hair feel fully clean so I stick to regular shampoo. Retails for: $19.99 (WTH?!) Okay that price is a little crazy, I would never pay that much for dry shampoo, I hope this works miracles on my hair!

Tom's of Maine Toddler Training Toothpaste: We already have toothpaste for Liv and it has lasted a while but I'll probably keep this one downstairs for brushing her teeth in the morning, it might make life a little easier. I'm glad that it's fluoride free and safe to swallow because I would have tossed it otherwise. Retails for: $3.99 

The total value of this box is about $45, which well exceeds the $13 that I paid for it. This box wasn't terrible, it was okay but I just don't think it's worth it, I rather get books and age appropriate toys for her than random stuff I may not use. I wanted to test out a few boxes before picking one and I like Citrus Lane the best so I'll be sticking with that one. This was the last box for our three month subscription and I decided to cancel. I've heard some complaints from other people about still being charged after cancelling so I really hope I don't have that issue.
