A Little Bundle Subscription Review + Coupon– October 2016
A Little Bundle is a monthly subscription box designed for moms and babies. Their main focus is the quality of the products selected each month. Here are the five main criteria we follow in choosing the bundle products:
- non-toxic (of course!)
- natural and organic preferred (this does not necessarily mean every item we choose is natural and organic.)
- attention to detail during construction from the start to finish
- proven to be efficient and functional
- made with love and care
FYI – A Little Bundle is no longer offering subscriptions. Their new “format” now includes gift bundles that can be purchased as a surprise gift set a newborn gift set, and “build a bundle” which is really just shopping from their (newly expanded) store and they’ll package it in their signature drawstring bag (shown above). Subscriptions auto-renewed for the last time in September.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
This review is of the last auto-renewed subscription, $49 box.

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Levi Oritz Thank You Card – Value $3?
A Little Bundle included this to say thank you to their subscribers, since September was the last auto-renew date, meaning October is the last of their subscriptions to be sent out. This artist does illustrations for ALB’s website, too. I think this pig is so cute.
Elephant Children’s Tee – Listed Value $28
This is a really cute tee. I wish the colors were reversed, though, because I’d love a grey shirt with cream illustration even more. ALB has sent out quite a few cream/white shirts/onesies. Anyways, I love elephants and Gideon will get lots of wear.
Baggu Medium 3D Zip in Sailor Stripe – Value $10
I always love getting Baggus in subscription boxes. I don’t have one of this design yet, either.
This style is cool – it pops up quite a lot (more than what’s shown here) but doesn’t take up too much room in my suitcase or carry on at all.
Wee Gallery Play House Art Blocks Puzzle – Value $18.95
This cardboard block set has different black-and-white (high contrast) night scene puzzles. I need to show my son how to identify the pictures and work the puzzles (he wouldn’t quite be able to do that yet) but right now he loves stacking them (and knocking them over).
Here’s a look at all the different scenes/puzzles.
Verdict: I liked all my items this month, but I just don’t feel like this box looks like a $50 subscription box. I think it’s interesting that A Little Bundle has ended their subscriptions considering that the last couple boxes from them have left me feeling like I want more out of them. For $50 a box I feel like there should be more items. As far as value goes, the last couple boxes have added up to about $58-59 (including this one, adding up to $59.95) which is over the cost of the box but I tend to feel that some items they send, particularly ALB exclusives, have felt like they have inflated values. I’ve had some great boxes from them and they always send items I like, but the subscription as a whole has let me down lately. Now they’re going to only a shop with pre-made gift bundle options, which may be a smart choice for them at this point. I love the items they have to offer, but I just feel like they were losing footing in the baby box market with some other boxes really coming to the forefront of that category lately (Kub Klub, Bumby Box, etc).
