My son, Fox, is now almost 18 months old and is at the age where he is starting to really understand the world around him. He loved his August Bluum box and we’re excited to see what August has in store!
Mini WOW City Drivers – Value $10.97
The first item we received for August was this awesome city driver car toy set! My son is obsessed with cars right now and loves when they come with a driver so this was a hit! WOW toys are good for kids 18 months to 5 years of age, and they meet global safety standards by providing products that feature child safe paint and are PAH free. Always a plus in my book! This set is much smaller in size than a lot of cars he has now, which makes it perfect to easily put in my bag to take with us to the park or other outings when he might need a little toy distraction.
Moluk Plui Rain Ball – Value $13.99
This rain ball bath toy was designed in Switzerland and is made from durable vinyl that is BPA and latex free. I was surprised by the high quality of this ball when I took it out of the box because I assumed it would be squishy like other bath toys we have, but this is a harder shell that is very durable. With my toddler, we need toys that will withstand lots of throwing! This toy is meant to demonstrate basic physical principles by filling it up, cover the nozzle, and then remove your finger from the nozzle to see the water come out. While I think my son might be a little too young to actually play with this and understand it, he had a really good time playing with it during bath time, and enjoyed the “waterfall” aspect of it. Since it is such a durable product, I think we will be able to keep this item for a while so that he can continue to learn and grow with it!
Dot to Dot for Tiny Tots – Value $1.99
This book is recommended for kids 3 years or older so it is a little advanced for my son, we are still working on not eating crayons when we draw. The pages are filled with fun and simple dot-to-dot and maze exercises, plus the pages can easily come out of the book! This would be great to take on a car trip or to use as a fun quiet time activity on a rainy day. While this might be a little-advanced right now for my son, I am very impressed with the quality and amount of activities in this book. I will be saving this for him to use in the next few months!
Spongefuls Soap Filled Sponges, Set of 3 – Value $5.99
These little sponges are filled with a gentle and moisturizing soap that you can use for up to seven total washes! I didn’t think my son was going to be very interested in these during bath time, but he wanted to play with the sponge the whole time. He loved naming each fruit and squishing them under the water. The sponges created a really nice lather, but I didn’t love the scents for each as they smelled a little too fruity for me and the paint on the watermelon and strawberry flaked off a bit during use. I could see these being really fun as my son gets older and he starts doing baths and showers on his own!
Oilogic Relax & Calm Essential Oil Roll-on, 0.46 fl oz – Value $9.99
We love using essential oils as a part of our bedtime routine for my son. I was especially excited to see that this blend is already diluted so no need to do that on your hand, which saves a lot of time and mess! This roll-on has a sweet citrus and earthy scent to it that was very calming for both me and my son. I rolled some on my son’s chest and the bottoms of his feet before bedtime to help get him relaxed for a long nights rest.
Verdict: This was my second month receiving a Bluum box, and while I was happy with the overall quality of each item, I felt that the products skewed a little older for my son’s current age. He really loved the WOW driver set, and I know we will eventually get a lot of use out of the bath toy and the dot to dot book. However, these aren’t items that he can really use right now like the items we received last month. I think my favorite item of the month was the essential oil roll-on simply because it helps to make our bedtime routine fast and easy since this is already diluted. This month I received 5 items instead of the 4 from last month, but my calculated value came in a bit lower at $42.93. While this is over the $34 a month cost, it still comes in below the $45 retail value promise listed on their website. I must say, we were so excited to see this month’s Bluum box arrive and have such a great time opening it as a family. While I hope next month’s box features items that are more age appropriate, I am overall still very happy with the items we received this month!
