Cuddoll The Flutterers Finger Puppet Set – Retail Value $24
I love that these little handmade finger puppets came with their own cute drawstring bag to store them in! Not only will it protect them, but it makes this a great toy to take with you on the go for some entertainment anywhere. I had never heard of this brand before, but these are made from GOTS certified organic cotton yarn and contain no detachable parts so they are safe for ages six months and up.
These little finger puppets are so cute and seem to be really well made. The crochet is nice and tight and feels strong like it will hold up to a lot of play by little hands! I think this mix of characters is really cute and a fun idea. They fit nicely on your fingers so that you can fly them around.
They included this nice color booklet that showcases some of their other designs, tells us a bit about the company and also includes a coupon for 10% off. These dolls are handmade by women who gain confidence and financial stability through their work. I love a company with a great mission like this one! From Cuddoll:
“Together, we partnered up with an organization to create a working environment for women who need emotional and financial support to start over and live a healthy life. We built several workshop studios within this organization in Turkey to teach these women how to fish! We have an open-door policy. From beginners to experienced handcrafters, they are all welcome to join our team to create, share, and heal! We are now healing and supporting these amazing, passionate moms by putting their creativity to work making unique, handmade crafts in a safe and supporting environment.”
Rustic Maka Natural Deodorant in Sweet Lemonade – Retail Value $10
I made the switch over to natural deodorant almost two years ago when I was pregnant with my third son so I am always happy to receive one to test out in a box! This one smells delicious- like a lemon cookie with a hint of orange and it goes on clear. As much as I love the smell, it actually seems to fade fairly quickly, which is disappointing because that lingering smell is usually how I know it’s working. I haven’t been using this long enough to really know how effective it is, but I think this brand could definitely be a contender in my regular lineup. It glides on smoothly, especially for a natural deodorant, and it actually feels pretty moisturizing. It is free of parabens and aluminum, and some of the organic ingredients include coconut oil, tapioca, baking soda and candelilla wax which may be why it has such a moisturizing feel.
Kid-O Mini AirPlane – Listed Value $8
I had a hard time locating this mini plane online, so I had to go by retail value, but considering this full-size one retails for $18.99, this is probably accurate, although our version is much more basic. This plastic plane is so cute and just the right size for Bennett’s little hands. He loved playing with it as soon as he saw it.
The last item in the box was this set of items from WooBamboo which I had never heard of before and it included a coupon for one Woobuck ($1) off on their site. They are a very eco-friendly brand that makes sustainable oral care products for kids and adults. They have a marshmallow toothpaste for kids that I might have to surprise my kids with, and they say their sweet cinnamon flavor for adults can even improve your morning coffee if you use it beforehand! I think I might have to test this out!
EcoAwesome Natural Floss – Buy 2 packs for $9.90
I guess I never thought about how floss is not a very eco-friendly product, but WooBamboo has solved that problem! Their floss is made from biodegradable natural silk and comes in plant-based plastic packaging that becomes your floss container. I simply had to tear off the top part, remove the plastic tape and thread the floss up through the top. The floss seems just as effective as traditional floss and the flavor is really subtle to almost non-existent. It seems like a pretty innovative product that I’d expect to find in a box like this!
EcoAwesome Bamboo Toothbrush for Kids – Buy 4 for $10.50
They also included a bamboo toothbrush for kids that has soft bristles and a small handle for little hands. I love the idea of an eco-friendly toothbrush like this and I feel like they are relatively affordable, too!
Here is a closer look at the handle and bristles. This is again biodegradable, which is definitely “eco-awesome” as they put it!
Verdict: This month felt like a super eco-friendly Ecocentric Mom box full of innovative products that I would hope to find in a box like this! The deodorant and WooBamboo items were so practical and I was happy to find sustainable, natural alternatives to the products that we use daily. The toys were also really unique and cute, plus I love that the Cuddolls have a fantastic mission in supporting other women and mothers. This was an excellent box this month in my opinion! The total retail value of this box came to $49.59 which I’m happy about for a $32.99 + free shipping box that introduced me to some great new brands.
