Thanks to Bluum Box for providing a box for review purposes. All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always. Affiliate links may be included.
I’m so excited to show you all the fun things that came in our recent Bluum Box for Layah! This subscription service for young children came very prettily packaged and was custom created not only for 25 month old little girls, which is pretty specific, but it also came with items that were perfect for the start of summer.
I was TOTALLY impressed!
The box we received from Bluum was all about spending time out in the sun, and protecting ourselves from those pesky UV rays, as well as some fun ways to relax. The first item of note was KidZ BanZ, which are sunglasses that you can strap on to your child so they won’t fall off. Cute, right? I wish I could tell you that she loved them as much as I loved seeing her in them. Unfortunately, I can’t get her to agree to wear them. Bummer…they are an awesome idea, and they retail for $17, which makes them worth a good chunk of what the Bluum Box costs (you always come out ahead, price-wise, with a Bluum Box!).
But I can still get her eyes some protection (as well as the back of her neck!) with this cute sun hat which she WILL wear! 🙂 Darah has even tried to wear it, but alas, her head it just too big!
But she CAN wear the sunscreen that came in the kit. It’s from a brand I didn’t previously know (Purple Prairies Botanicals) and it is a mineral stick of sunscreen. Darah likes putting it on herself, and I like that it is water resistant. I will say that I personally prefer the spray-on sunscreens just because other types take longer to apply and to soak in, but I have used this sunscreen a handful of times and have been pleased with the protection it provides each time. This product retails for $9.99, so by the time you factor in the tax you would pay at a store, the sunscreen and the sunglasses are items your subscription price covered, and everything else (as well as shipping) was free. Not too shabby!
Other items in the kit included a great reusable snack container which has been going to school with the kids for their 2 day/week program, and the book Ten Little Monkeys (which we actually already owned, or else it definitely would have been a hit!).
Bluum Box Pricing
A one month subscription to Bluum costs $29, and we certainly received more than $29 worth of merchandise. But the price improves to just $25/box if you make a 3 month commitment. Up it to 6 months and your price is $23/box, and if you go all in and get a 12 month subscription, you get the very best deal, as each box will now only cost $20.79.
So I’m VERY seriously considering getting the 12 month subscription because I think the value is so high. If you have ever had a Bluum Box subscription, I’d love to hear from you about your experience!
