There’s also a little note inside about why they picked what they picked.

Green Sprouts Straw Bottle  – Value $8

I absolutely love this straw bottle! It’s a nice size for me to not have to refill all the time but not so big that it gets super heavy when full and is then hard to hold. It holds 10 oz. It’s become our new go-to cup!

I also love that the cap has a lid that slides over the straw and closes it off to prevent leaks and spills. I have to say – I have had no problems with this leaking. Like, at all. Which I’m thrilled about because if you have kids you know that it’s pretty much impossible to find a cup that doesn’t leak.

Me4Kidz Little Buddy Wipes – Value $2.99

These wipes are antibacterial and perfect for scrapes and such or just on the go! I’ve been liking these as quick clean-ups while we’re out. They smell great, too, with a tea tree and cucumber scent. Fortunately, my son hasn’t had any cuts or scrapes lately but I’ve had a paper cut and these haven’t stung or bothered it at all.

Fred Buff Baby Rattle – Value $9.50

This is too cute! It’s a dumbbell-shaped rattle.

kub-klub-october-2016-items-5

It’s a bit of a novelty for sure but it still works! My 1-year-old thought this was interesting and funny at first but rattles are a little young for him (this toy is best for 0-3 months, according to the packaging) so I think I’ll end up gifting this one.

Little Grippers Socks in Red Stars – Value $6.50 (on sale for $3)

These socks are great! Maybe I’m weird but I love getting baby socks in subscriptions. These have “stay on technology” to help keep them from falling down.

kub-klub-october-2016-items-7

The “stay-on” technology is really a thin layer of dermatologist-approved, hypo-allergenic, clear silicon that gently grip and keep the socks up! Also, their website says that washing actually “renews” the stay-on technology and it lasts the lifetime of the garment – I’m excited about these!

BabyLit Frankenstein, an Anatomy Primer – Value $9.99

This board book takes from Mary Shelley’s book Frankenstein to deliver a scare-free anatomy primer for babies.

kub-klub-october-2016-items-9

Each page shows a new body part to “build the perfect monster,” and shows how the monster uses those body parts in cute ways (climbing mountains, eating strawberries, reading books…).  This is a cute book for October/Halloween but is appropriate for year round since it’s based on a piece of literature and isn’t specifically about Halloween.

Hape Counting Stacker – Value $9.99

I have to apologize – something happened to my photos of this toy when editing my pictures. I would have re-taken them, but I gave this toy to a friend at her baby shower yesterday. Go figure. It happened to a couple other item photos for this box but I still had them and could re-shoot them! This image is from the Hape website.

Anyway, I had mixed feelings about this toy. I like the idea and colors and everything, but the spokes were held into the base with an elastic string. They stood up well, but with not much force and at the wrong angle the spokes would push over and you could let go and they’d snap back. This made it really hard for my son to find the right angle to slide the bead down the pole correctly because it didn’t let him figure it out, and the pole would just collapse. And then pushing the spokes over and flicking them just became the main way to have fun with this for my son. The idea of this stacker is great and it’ll be great for toddlers a little older than my one-year-old, who are learning to sort by color and count rather than just practicing the motor skills of getting the beads on the spokes.

Bumkins Reusable Snack Bags, small – 2 pack, Value $7.95

I love these snack bags! They are 7” across and 3.5” tall.  They’re BPA-, PVC-,  Vinyl-, Pthalate-, and lead-free.

kub-klub-october-2016-items-12

My favorite part about them is that they zipper shut so I don’t have to worry about any crumbs or pieces falling out into my bag. I also adore the designs, and they have some other ridiculously cute prints.

Verdict: I’m always happy with my Kub Klub box! They consistently choose high-quality products and I love the curation of items each month. I also love seeing brands I know and love along with brands that are new to me – Kub Klub is responsible for many of my favorite baby items. Every month, I’m so happy with how many products are actually in the box! This month there were 7. The value of my October box adds up to $54.92, which I’m happy with for a $37 kids’ box, especially because I like everything so much.

Lately, there’s been a clear lack of quality boxes in the baby and young children’s market since Citrus Lane went out of business and our Bluum reviews tend to have many readers chiming in with complicated issues with them and unsatisfactory resolutions (which I’ve even experienced some of myself). I’m excited to confidently say that I really think Kub Klub is doing a consistently fantastic job delivering delightful, high-quality boxes to fill that void. I’m always excited to see this box on my doorstep!

  1. We had that stacker toy for about a week until I noticed my two year old daughter was able to fit the beads into her mouth. Apparently she has a large mouth. It was a rather scary moment for us until we got it out… past her teeth.

  2. I signed up for a year sub and was impressed with my first box but wish it had more variety. We only got 5 items but I noticed another review site also had 7 items. Doesn’t seem very fair, but the value was still there a $50 value and I paid $24. Though I would never pay $19 for a teether or $12 for a rubber animal.

    • Sara – Thank you so much for reading and bringing this up! After reading your comment, we reached out to Kub Klub to ask about the differences. They responded by saying that boxes contain 4-8 items (which we updated in the box breakdown section in this article) and that they always promise to exceed the $45 cost of the box. Their rep said that since boxes are customized, this means that the contents can fulfill that promise with fewer higher-priced items or more lower-priced items.

      I hope that helps clear things up! I just wanted to make sure to let you know we did reach out to them to double check that we receive the same curation and treatment as regular subscribers – which is a nonnegotiable standard for us at MSA! 🙂

      • Thank you Haley for clearing that up! I know my son is a bit younger, only 4 months and the choices are more limited to what he might like. But I wish it had included a book or something else. But the value was definitely there. I have been impressed with their customer service, I loved the handwritten note asking for feedback, they way they customize each box. And after I left feedback the CEO emailed me back, their CS has been wonderfully refreshing. I’m very anxious to see what we get this month!
