BabyBin Subscription Box Review – March 2017
BabyBin has just started a monthly subscription box that brings you age and gender appropriate products for you and your baby to keep! They previously had a subscription model that felt like a “Stitch Fix of baby boxes,” where they sent you a “styled/curated” box filled with items and you would pay only for what you keep. I really like their new model better. I’d much rather pay a flat rate for a subscription that will bring me a good value in surprise baby products because I can go to the store and touch, feel, and buy toys and clothes and gear at full-price myself at any time on my own. I’m really glad they changed their model because I always loved the products they sent.
FYI: BabyBin sent an email to current subscribers today announcing they will be closing their subscription service. From BabyBin:
Your final BabyBin shipment has been shipped and you should receive it by the end of the week. We filled your BabyBin with the products necessary to fulfill the remainder of your subscription (i.e. if you had three months remaining on your subscription, you will receive three months worth of products in this shipment). For those of you on month-to-month memberships, please consider this your last BabyBin shipment.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

B. Toys Mini Wheeee-ls!, Freddy Zoon and Officer Lawly – Value $7.75 total?
(FYI – these are sold in packs of 4, so that’s how I derived the value.) My son spotted these as soon as I pulled them out of the box! These are made with a soft material and have a chunky design so they’re perfect for little grippy hands. They click when you roll them forward or backward, and pulling them back lets them self-propel forward. My son loves these.
Munchkin Snack Catcher – Value $3
I was excited to pull this out of the box because I love all things Munchkin. This is a BPA-free toddler snack canister and the top is made of soft, flexible rubber for little hands to reach in and get snacks. This is perfect because I feel like I can never have too many of these. I also think it’s easier for my son to use than others we’ve tried, like one from Ubbi.
Sassy Critter Links – Value $8.99
Sassy is another brand I really love! In fact, I had a different set of links with my son and they were one of his favorite things for a long time.
These are a great toy for new babies and they’re handy, too, because you can use them to link together and hang toys from the car headrest or car seat handle or play mats or something for them to play with.
These links are a bunch of different colors and several have little critter designs and then the other colors have different textures, too.
The tag says these are valued at $26, but you can buy them from Carter’s for $13.
I love getting children’s/baby clothes in subscription boxes! And I am actually really excited about this 5-pack because these plain, white, short sleeve body suits are basic staples in Gideon’s closet.
Unless it’s a really warm day (which hasn’t happened in Michigan in ages!), I put a little under-onesie on him. These are the perfect size for him right now, too.
Verdict: I loved my March BabyBin box! Everything included this month was a hit. We got a great mix of fun and practical items, which is great. I always love the brands and products BabyBin sends out. The value this month adds up to about $33, which breaks even with the cost of the box and is the lowest value I’ve received from BabyBin (I usually get $50+), but I’m not mad since we like and will use every item.
