Bluum 32 Month Old Box - September 2014

* This post contains affiliate and referral links.

Once again this is a VERY late review of my Bluum box sent to me. Remember last month I complained about me doing my boxes later and later. Well that trend has kept up and it's mainly due to mommy being so busy with work. For those who don't know, my mommy is active duty Army and when duty calls it truly calls. This month has been a great month nontheless and we are getting ready for the Christmas Holiday season. We've already started our Holiday Gift Guide and we are updating the list weekly with some of the hottest toys for this holiday season.  Now for those who are new to my site, or those who have no idea what a Bluum subscription is all about let me tell you what it is. Bluum is a monthly subscription box for both mom and baby from pregnancy to age 5. Each month you receive a box of surprise 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 what I got in my 31 month old box, take a look.

I just turned 32 months 4 days ago and I can't believe that I'll be 3 in just a few months. While I'm highly anticipating becoming a three year old I think I am going to miss out on being two. I still have yet to experience the terrible two's and I have 4 months to get caught up. How can I possibly go through year two without being terrible? Well until then, let's get started on what I got in my 32 month old box.

Let's begin with item number one!

The benefits

The total for my Bluum box this month was $30.27 based on Amazon prices. Once again I wasn't totally impressed by the value of my box and was even more disappointed that my book wasn't working. I have since contacted Bluum in the hope that a replacement will be sent. I'll update next month if that happened. There were no toys this month and the other book is for mommy to use for me so this month wasn't really a great month for me. While I like trying new snacks, the ones sent I've tried before and once they're gone, they're gone which is why I prefer not having food sent in my subscription boxes.

  1. I'm so sorry your book doesn't work. I hope they fix it for you so that you can enjoy your book. I would love to give those snappeas a try.

  2. I absolutely love Snapea Crisps - Lightly Salted. I buy them all the time. I certainly hope they send a replacement for that broken book!!

  3. That is funny that you don't want to miss out on your "terrible twos". For my son, three and four were more terrible than 2! lol I love this idea of the Bluum box. Yes, too bad about the book, but I am really impressed with all the goodies for you and mom in the Bluum box!

  4. That stinks about the book, that would have been my favorite thing in the box. My son would have loved it.

  5. Good variety in this box! I like that book the best...too bad it wasn't working. Maybe Bluum would replace it for you?

  6. What a great box! I would have went nuts over the fish bowl! I love Dr. Seuss!

  7. So sorry to hear about your book but I hope they fix it and I am loving that Dr. Seuss bowl. I'm a huge fan!

  8. I wonder if the book can easily be fixed. Otherwise looks like a good deal.

  9. That box is chock full of great things. I want to try the pea crisps. I'm sorry about the's a bummer when something brand new ships broken. We just had that happen here w/a radio for my husband's work truck.
