My Petite French Box Kid’s Subscription Review + Coupon – February 2018
My Petite French Box is a bi-monthly subscription box for babies and toddlers. It focuses on curated children’s clothing and wellness products from France for ages newborn to 5 years old.
I have to mention that I’ll totally be reusing it for toy storage. It’s beautiful! The craftsmanship that went into the little details of this box are truly impressive, right down to the logo-ed yellow ribbon.
This review is of the $125, every other month, Bonjour Box. Upon ordering, you’re asked to input your baby’s sizing information to ensure that each box is customized. This box is catered towards my child’s gender (boy), date of birth (11/5/17), and top, pants, and shoe sizes (6 months, and size 2).
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

My Petite French Box Bonjour Box February 2018 Review
This adorable illustration from Little Cube was placed on the top of the box’s contents. I love how it perfectly mimics the design of the box’s exterior. It acts as a cute intro to what you’ll find inside, and it’s cute enough to hang on the wall of my son’s nursery! Very fitting since we’ve begun to accumulate some travel-inspired artwork.
A small info card is devoted to each of the featured French brands. I found this to be pretty unique since most subscription boxes tend to opt for an info sheet that lists all products together. The individual cards are a great way to get to know the history of each unique brand, and it feels special.
I also received coupon cards from Mustela and Sophie la Girafe (codes are on the back of each).
Mustela Hydra Bebe Body Lotion, 100ml – Retail Value $3.49
This gentle, natural moisturizer is one that I had been interested in trying! Its list of ingredients includes Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Oil, Vitamins E and F, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter, and Avocado Perseose. The formula is light on the skin, not greasy, and it leaves behind a sort of powdery, clean, and slightly floral scent. I don’t normally like scents added to products that I use on my baby, but this smell is elegant and lovely, and the natural ingredients make up for it. Such a joy to use after bath time! My baby’s skin is not particularly dry, to begin with, but I found this moisturizer to leave him feeling soft and hydrated.
Melchior & Balthazar Argan Oil, 1.7 oz – Retail Value $47.91 USD (€39.00)
This one’s for the moms! First of all, the packaging of this oil is gorgeous. The glass bottle features gold decal detailing, and the spray topper makes application easy. It just feels substantial, luxurious, and oh-so-European. This 100% pure virgin argan oil is said to nourish, revitalize, firm and moisturize the skin as well as improve elasticity and provide anti-aging properties. I currently have several different types of oil in my skincare regimen rotation, so I was thrilled to try a new one! It didn’t disappoint. I have actually used a different brand of argan oil in the past, and the results were wonderful. Comparatively, this M & B oil feels a bit silkier on my skin and just as hydrating. In addition to face care, this oil can also be used to add shine to hair and strength to nails.
Moulin Roty Les Petits Dodos Striped Rabbit Ring Rattle – Retail Value $20.00
According to the accompanying info card, Moulin Roty has been crafting quality toys for 40 years. They are devoted to promoting “softness, fantasy, and tenderness” with a focus on preserving the childhood soul. I definitely picked up on the heart behind this beautifully crafted little rattle. Its fabric is plush, and the colors are perfectly muted and stylish — not loud and showy as many toys manufactured by mainstream companies are. I realize that bright colors can be stimulating for baby, but… moderation. My 4-month-old has been enjoying learning to grasp onto the ring of this toy, and I also wonder if the fact that it has an adorable bunny face helps in making him more interested in it.
Sophie la Girafe Natural Rubber Keychain – Retail Value $7.15
We own the larger version of a Sophie la Girafe teether, and I think it’s still a bit early for my baby to get much use out of it. He has not yet cut any teeth (pro drooler, though!). This little mini version is cute, but it just doesn’t seem sanitary to me. Or maybe I don’t fully understand the keychain attachment. Is it intended to fit on your keys? The inside of my diaper bag has a leather strip with a key ring at the end of it, so I attached it there. Still, I feel like the ring could be a potential choking hazard if it were to break off. I love the look of the iconic Sophie giraffe, though, and its terrific that it’s 100% natural rubber.
Toi-Même Paris Oh là là ! Backpack – Retail Value $49.02 USD (€39.90)
This little backpack is darling! I can’t wait until my baby gets excited about stuffing it with books and toys for day trip when he gets a little older. In the meantime, it’s the perfect size for me to do just that. Its cotton material is nice and durable, and I am obsessed with this subdued slate blue hue. An elasticized opening and velcro closure make it easy to use. The Oh là là graphic will also be a great way to introduce other languages to my little one!
Jacadi Paris Long Sleeve Bodysuit – Retail Value $35.00
Jacadi Paris Striped Short Overalls – Retail Value $57.00
Just when I thought that it couldn’t get more ADORABLE. These pieces arrived as an apparent set, as shown, but they’re listed individually on the Jacadi Paris website. The cotton bodysuit features an embroidered peter pan collar. There are several extra snaps on the back and sides that create a fitted look while allowing for easy diaper changes. A little complicated to get on, but nothing too tricky. Add the cotton/linen blend pinstripe shorts, and this look is just WAY. TOO. CUTE! Here’s my baby, Orson, wearing both pieces:
Both the onesie and overalls are a 6 months size, and I was surprised to find that they fit quite snuggly. Ori is only 4 months, and he’s right in the middle as far as growth percentiles go. I’m definitely not complaining, though — I think we found our Easter outfit!
Verdict: My first experience with My Petite French Box’s Bonjour Box was really extraordinary. I love that all the items felt well-made and just special. If you love natural fabrics and ingredients, hushed tones, and dainty details, this box is full of goodies for you + babe. It’s apparent that a lot of care goes into this box. This time around, the outfit was a true highlight!
This month’s box has an estimated value of $219.57 when you take the exchange rate into account (it can vary based on time and source). This doesn’t include the value of the illustration and the box itself. With a $125.00 box cost, I would say that the priwce is more than fair — especially considering that many of the brands offered are not readily available in the US.
