I received my first Bluum Box yesterday! It arrived a day earlier than expected, so that was a nice surprise.
I signed up with a discount for a 3 month subscription. It’s $34 a month if you sign up for automatic monthly billing, roughly $32 a month for most other subscription plans.
You can be surprised by Bluum with what is included in your box, or you can choose the items yourself. You are also able to choose either up to 4 items for your child, or 3 for your child and one for yourself. I chose four for Bubs because I couldn’t think of a reason to get anything for myself.
For my first box, Bluum picked all 4 of my items.
1 Lift the Flap Book: Peekaboo I Love you ($8.99)
1 Grasping Toy – Melissa & Doug Giraffe ($9.99)
1 Bottle Bud – KidKusion, Lion ($9.99)
1 4 Pack Corner Cushions – Dreambaby ($6.71)
Total Received: $35.68
Unlike my other subscription (Ipsy), you get exactly what you pay for. No feeling like you got more bang for your buck.
The book will be the clear favorite for awhile. Bubs loves books, and I just have to keep it away from him long enough so he doesn’t tear it apart. He doesn’t quite understand reading yet at 13 months. The next useful item will be the corner cushions. I will never be done baby proofing the house. EVER. There’s always something new that needs to get put away, covered, closed, whatever.
The koozie? Uh, he’ll probably spend most of his time chewing on it. I might try this with our milk cups without handles even though Bubs holds them well, but I really don’t see much use for this. Well. Maybe for my beer. Summer is coming, after all.
Next month, I have selected the items we’ll receive. I am not sure Bluum is worth it just yet. I was underwhelmed, though I don’t know what I expected. It might be worth it simply to pick my own items based on what I think Bubs will get the most use out of.
