We were so excited to receive our very first Bluum Box in the mail today. Kingston received the 18 month box, which is perfect because he will be 18 months in just 2 days (is that really possible?!). Bluum Box is a monthly subscription box for pregnancy-pre-k! They are curated specifically for your child's age, and also typically include a mommy item too. The boxes range in price from $21-$24.95 a month depending on how many months you buy.

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the 18 month box, to see it packed with goodies! Here is what we received in the box along with the lowest retail prices that I could find:
Simple First Sounds Noisy Zoo - $8.99 - I was really excited to see this because I knew Kingston was going to love it. He loves animals, and we don't own any of these sound books! The book itself is very fun and informative. It focuses on the four animals pictured on the side. K loved pressing the buttons so much! He especially loved pressing them with his toes.
Now this is where a bit of disappointment set in. Instead of receiving a mommy item or another AGE APPROPRIATE item, we received this:
Hello Baby: High Contrast Book - $5.39. Okay so this is a board book with high contrast pictures and no words geared towards a newborn 0-6 months. Honestly, I don't even think Kingston would have been that interested in this right out of the womb, but now at 18 months old, he took it out of the box all excited, opened the cover, and looked at me with a huge disappointed look before tossing it aside. I'm not sure how this ended up in our box, but I have contacted Bluum directly for a replacement product, and will keep you posted on their response. If they send me the replacement product like they should, then I will honestly be able to say that I am incredibly happy with this subscription box. I'm hoping that their customer service pulls through!
Edit: Bluum responded promptly to my concerns, and let me know that they will be sending a replacement product out with our April box! I am very happy with their customer service so far.
EDIT EDIT!: I am absolutely thrilled to say that I received our replacement item. It did NOT come in our April box, but they did send it separately once they realized their mistake.
Here are some pictures of Kingston enjoying his first Bluum box!
Was it worth it?
As my introductory box, this was half off. With a 6 month subscription, this first box cost about $11. The total price of the products in this box (taking into account the lowest possible prices I could find) was about $44.00. So, yes, it was definitely worth it! Kingston was very happy with his box, and so was I (minus the newborn book he received). I am hoping that we are sent a replacement, and that next month is free of any mistakes.
