Bluum 30 Month Old Box - July 2014



* This post contains affiliate and referral links.


I've had my Bluum box for a few days now but mommy just haven't had the time to update with a post. This is another one of my toddler subscription box that I have had for over a year. Just recently they merged with another of my subscription and has gotten much better in my opinion. Mommy was on the verge of canceling when that happened. Who said that mergers aren't good? For those who have been with me for a while, you know what Bluum is all about. For those who are visiting me for the first time let me tell you a bit about Bluum. It is a monthly subscription box for mom and baby from pregnancy to age 5. Each month you receive a box of goodies catered to your little one based on their age. Subscription costs $29/monthly but there are 3 other subscription plans, and the longer you subscribe the cheaper it becomes. You can get a 3 month subscription at $25/month, 6 months at $23/month and 12 months at $21/month all which needs to be paid upfront. If you're interested in seeing what I got in my 29 month old box feel free to take a peek.


Now lets delve into what I got in my 30 month old box. Surprisingly I turned 30 months old yesterday. Happy 2 1/2 years old to me! Another six more months to go and I'll be 3. Hip Hip Hooray!


I opened my box and I saw some goodies that were not actually for me. Guess mommy got some stuff this month. Hooray for mommy but I wanted this to be all about me. Guess you can call me selfish. Now Bluum unlike Citrus Lane subscription, doesn't come with a "Hello" card describing everything you got but they did send an email. So lets get into it!

I'm not sure if Bluum realizes this but I actually got one of those bottle tethers last month. I've also gotten them before as well. I don't really care for it so it will be passed along to someone else. I do love that this month I got to get some books which I haven't gotten in a while and I'm really happy about that.


The total for my Bluum box this month was $39.37 based on Amazon prices. Not bad considering the subscription is only $29. Although I would have preferred not to have the bottle tether it was an otherwise great box. I loved that they included something for mommy although my sister was the one who eventually got them. Mommy doesn't really wear makeup.  If you're interested in getting your very own Bluum box you can sign up using my referral link and save 50% off your first box. That's a great deal if you ask me.

  1. I started to comment on this post last night and got distracted but I just had to come back this morning. Seems like Bluum is getting a lot better. I remember you saying that you were going to cancel. I'm glad that they're working out for you now and can't wait to see what you get next month.

  2. I agree that it is about time they sent you some books. Mergers are not always bad-in this case it looked like it worked.

  3. Melissa & Doug make such cool toys, this one looks to be no exception. I'm glad you got some reading in, that'd be my fave thing about that particular box. :)
