Bitsy Boxes July 2018 Review
This month's box was themed around art and encouraging kids to use their imagination and make life a little more colorful.
Berkley Green Baby Multi-Surface Cleaner, 16.5 fl oz - Retail Value $6.99
I love getting multi-surface cleaners in subscription boxes! They seem like a relatively common item in baby and children boxes. Which is great for me because they're super practical and I always use them. This one is plant-based and uses natural enzymes to clean up, and worked well on my counters. It smells light and fresh, too.
My toddler's not in a high chair anymore, but my 9-month-old absolutely needs this, especially as we venture into the realm of real food! This mat is 36"x48" and has a great weight and quality to it. While I'm more inclined to prefer something that's a little more minimalist in the design, I don't already have a mat and this one will work very well.
Melissa & Doug Water Wow! On the Go Travel Activity, Numbers - Retail Value $4.99
YES. These are one of my favorite products for toddlers! I will always be excited to have more of these. They include a little brush pen that you fill with water and when you draw on the pages with it, colors and images are revealed. This entertains my son so much and is the best to keep packed in his backpack for car trips and restaurants.
Begin Again Art Dice - Retail Value $9.99
These art dice are actually a pretty cool idea. The idea is to roll some of the dice and then use the results to come up with something to draw. We tried them out with my 2-year-old, but he was more interested in either drawing or stacking the blocks. I think the intended concept is still a little ahead of him, but he enjoyed the quality time of drawing/playing with me anyway.
Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes Dark Circle Radiance Concentrate, .5 fl oz - Retail Value $55
Yes! I love this brand, and the value for this item alone makes this box for me. Sometimes boxes can be hit or miss when including items for moms, so I'm really happy to see a high quality and ingredient conscious item. This eye cream is designed to reduce dark under-eye circles, and it's made with arnica tincture, hyaluronic acid, soy peptides, and apricot kernel oil. It's also organic, cruelty-free, paraben- and alcohol-free, and silicone free. I think it's both thoughtful and a little funny that they chose a dark circle eye cream for moms. If there's a demographic that needs it, it's us!
Verdict: This month's Bitsy Boxes has a total value of $86.03, and for $39.99 + free shipping, I think that's great. I really like all the products they chose for us and I thought all of the items were good quality and useful! Also good to know: if you don't love something in your box, you can return that product for store credit (and with free shipping back to them!).
