The BabyGuy Box Subscription Review – February 2017
The BabyGuy Box is a monthly Baby and Toddler/Pre-K subscription box that sends you full-size products that have been hand-picked by Jamie Grayson (The Baby Guy NYC) who is a well-respected authority in baby gear and child safety over the past five years. They aim to send functional, practical, innovative, and fun things like toys, baby gear, books, feeding essentials, and clothing accessories.
They also offer monthly themed/curated, once-off purchases that do not renew which is a great, no-commitment way to try their service, too. Monthly subscribers get to choose whether to have a personalized surprise box or to receive a themed/curated box for that month instead.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The World of Eric Carle Puzzle Wheel – Value $14.99
I love everything Eric Carle! Gideon’s first birthday was actually Very Hungry Caterpillar themed. This puzzle wheel features animals from “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?”
The puzzle comes in this great circular box to hold all the pieces. It clasps shut with an elastic loop to go around a little metal peg.
And here’s what the puzzle looks like put together! I love Eric Carle’s art and this is a colorful and easy puzzle that still offers a lot to talk about and learn for your kids.
Rich Frog Kids’ Duck Feet Slippers – Value $17.95
These are a little big on Gideon right now but I think he’ll love them later. They’re soft and cute!
And they have a textured underside to help with friction.
Fluf Zip Hearts Carry-All Zipper Bag – Value $17.50
This is an 8.5”x8.5” bag made with 100% organic cotton. I think the design is downright adorable, and it’s washable (and pre-shrunk!).
And it’s lined with a fantastically bright and happy yellow lining. This bag is great and can be so versatile. You can use it for makeup, purse organizing, snacks, pencil case, and even a water-resistant “wet bag.” I think I’m going to use it to keep my items together in my diaper bag – so cute!
Learn with Mother Duck Book Set – Value $8?
I can’t find this little book set online, FYI, so I guesstimated the value. The mother duck is like a little boat and the three little ducklings are books that you can set inside.
They’re made out of a soft, puffy plastic material. Easy to wipe clean!
Each duck has its own educational theme: actions, noises, and colors. Although I think the “actions duck” should be renamed to the “animals duck” because that’s really what it shows (animals doing actions, but the words it has are the names of the animals).
Eefoo Original Poetry Art Cards – Value $15.99
These are alphabet-inspired art cards! They’re a great size – 7”x9”! The art is great and you could easily just use these as art or décor (in a classroom?) as well as educational or flash cards.
I love the design and art of these cards. The one thing I’m not sure about is the fact that each card has 4 different animals on it, and I can’t figure out what they have in common or why they’re grouped together! You can still use them to teach about animals and the alphabet and such but it’s driving me crazy not having a reason for grouping them together.
I love the art on the back of the cards, too!
Here’s the back of the box, showing all the cards.
Verdict: This was a pretty fun The BabyGuy Box this month! I love the quality of everything and I think there’s a lot of fun and educational play to be had from this month’s items. Plus, I love the zipper pouch for the parent gift. The value adds up to $74.43 which is right around the promised $78 of value, and I’m assuming that’s because I had to guess a little for one of the items so the value difference is probably just a mistake on my end. All in all, I’m happy.
