Bluum Subscription Box Review + Coupon – January 2016
Bluum is a monthly subscription box for babies and toddlers. Their boxes are very customized – specific to the month of your child’s age. Also, they recently began allowing you to “build your own Bluum,” meaning you can even pick what products you’ll receive out of a very wide selection of items (one of my very favorite parts of this subscription!). However, subscribers can still skip choosing their items in order to still be surprised each month.
The box I’m reviewing is customized from my preferences and choices for my son, who was born this past September! Because of this, my box may look completely different than someone else’s box.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

EverEarth Elephant Grasping Toy – value: $10.99
This elephant toy feels really nice, and I think it’s cute!
Ulubulu Teething Ring – value: $5.99
This teething ring is designed to be cooled and have different textures to help baby’s sore gums. I gave this to my son right away and he seemed to like it!
Baby Spa USA 3 in 1 Tearless Shampoo, Body Wash & Moisturizer – Stage 1 – 13.5 fl oz (full size), value: $10.99
I’m excited about this 3-in-1 shampoo, wash, and moisturizer because my son’s skin tends to be dry, and he’s also not a fan of getting lotion rubbed on him! I do that as much as I can, but I’ll be happy to have a wash that won’t dry him out, too.
VeraClean Dish Soap, Vintage Sage – 16 fl oz (full size), value: $12
This dish soap is an all-natural product and smells really nice, too. I’m happy to have this!
Angel Dear Carmel Beenie in Navy, 0-6m – value: $16.99
I can’t find this hat for sale online to confirm Bluum’s value, but I personally wouldn’t pay $17 for it. It’s actually quite a thin knit – it wouldn’t keep a baby’s head warm in cold wind or anything.
Eric Carle Reversible Seatbelt Strap Cover – Caterpillar – value: $5.99
Eric Carle and his books have a special place in my heart so I am so happy to have these Very Hungry Caterpillar seatbelt covers!
Baby Spa Samples, Shea Butter Diaper Cream and Soothing Face Cream
Verdict: I absolutely have to mention something special about this month’s Bluum box – I received 6 items. However, the Bluum Choice option that Bluum offers (it lets you build your own box) allows for 4 (I picked the baby wash, hat, seatbelt covers, and teething ring, but didn’t choose the dish soap or elephant toy). When I called customer service about it, they told me that the items I picked were a low enough total value that it flagged in their system to add more products for me to make a better value! I didn’t know they did this, but I’m really happy they do! That’s such a nice thing. It’d be so easy for them to say “well, those are the items you picked, too bad!” So, I really appreciate this of them, especially with the price increases for 2016! I think it shows they’re watching out to make sure subscribers still get a worthwhile value.
The value of my January Bluum box is $62.95! I’m happy with that.
