This is my first Mom 'N Tot Box. I do try to shop local when I can, so I really liked the mission of this box right off the bat.
The insert is a simple letter that lists out all of the items this month; there's no specific theme with this box.
I'm A Little Bit Little Tee by Mila Handmade - Listed Value $20
I love the look of this shirt, it's simple and cute and exactly how I like to dress my son.
Sadly this shirt was also a little bit little on my son. He's mostly wearing a 2T in shirts but starting to go into a 3T, and this was just too small to fit over his head. Luckily I have an adorable nephew who will fit into this in no time!
Rainbow Hand Kite & Percussion Instrument from Modern Tot Shoppe - Listed Value $15
This Etsy seller focuses on rainbow ribbon instruments and more. It looks like a lot of her items are geared toward Montessori-inspired play.
These are really bright and colorful toys!
The ribbons are treated to prevent fraying. Overall, these are really simple toys but fun for imaginative play.
For whatever reason, my son just did not like these! He was interested in looking at them, but not in playing with them, even though he usually likes anything that makes noise. These seem a little young for him right now although I'm sure a kid who loves colors and music would play with them at any age.
Rainbow 123s Set by Buckettoys - Value $22
This is an adorable set of stuffed felt numbers in a handy drawstring bag!
I love that the rainbow colors go in the same order as the numbers.
The backside of the numbers is all white.
I wasn't sure if my son would like these or not, after his reaction to the musical toys. But he loved them! We put all the numbers in order and counted out loud, then he happily made little stacks of them on the kitchen table and played with them with his stuffed animals.
Bolo Choker Necklace from Gypset Lover Jewelry - Listed Value $13
This is a minimal bolo-style necklace for mom.
I wasn't really sure about this necklace at first, but I liked the square beads and neutral colors. The Etsy shop suggests a few ways to wear it, including wrapping it around as a choker with a long bolo-style end:
It's a little more boho than my usual style, but it's so minimal that I ended up really liking it. I think this will be perfect over a simple tank this summer to help dress up an otherwise very casual outfit.
Verdict: This box was a little hit-or-miss for us personally; while I really genuinely liked all the items, it's really hard with kids between sizing issues and knowing whether or not they're going to like a specific toy or not. I still like the concept behind this box supporting small businesses, and think the items included were unique as advertised. If you're likely to buy these types of items anyway, the value is there. These items would have cost $70 at regular retail prices. That's a really great overall value for a $45/month box! I'd definitely consider something like this as a unique gift idea, too.
