Bluum 33 Month Old Box - October 2014

* This post contains affiliate and referral links.

I am getting later and later with my Bluum reviews and while this one is also late it's actually a lot earlier than our 32 month old box that we received last month. I love getting subscription boxes and while a few people may disagree about getting them, which their main reason being that they like to know what they're getting, I love the surprises. If you're new to the subscription world and have no idea what a Bluum subscription box is all about let me explain it to you. My regular readers already know so this is for the ones brand new to my site. Bluum is a monthly subscription box for both mom and babies from pregnancy all the way 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. You can take a look at some of our past Bluum boxes.

I will be 33 months in just 2 days so I was super excited to see what I got in my box. I like to think of these boxes as monthly birthday presents just for me. When I opened my box I saw a few things that I knew that I would like. Can you guess what they were? Book! Yes I was getting books. I was truly excited.

So lets get into what I got this month!

Folksy Foresters Bear by Manhattan Toy - $20.00

Lions and tigers and BEARS! Oh, yay! This Folksy Forester Friend is sure to bring good times to playtime. Made of soft corduroy, which is perfect for snuggling, this bear will keep your little one safe and cozy - no matter what adventure comes their way!

Why we love it
No one makes cuddly toys quite like Manhattan Toy and none have as much personality! This bear will befriend your little one and stick with them through and through - from long car rides, to those much needed naps, this bear is a true friend.

How to use it
Give this big guy a snuggle. He's the perfect companion for whatever your child has in store for him!

The benefits
A new twist on an old classic! This woodland bear is a great modern upgrade from the traditional teddy bear!
Little Rabbit Waits for the Moon - $7.19

This is the sleepy story of a Little Rabbit who is just WAITING for the moon to come so he can head to bed. With soothing words, and sweet, soft, illustrations, this book will help lull your little one into bedtime.

Why we love it
Anything that promotes a smooth transition into bedtime is a hit for us! Combine that with gentle rhymes and sweet little illustrations, and you've got a real winner!

How to use it
Snuggle up at bedtime and enjoy the story together. You might even find yourself stealing a few ZZZs!

The benefits
Children can benefit from being taught cues that help them understand how their day progresses. Whether the sky is waking up or the sky is getting dark, Little Rabbit Waits for the Moon can help teach this vital skill.

First Time School - $5.59

The best way to prepare a child for an experience is to go through all of the steps in advance! Disruptions in routine (even fun ones) can be a challenge for some, but Child's Play is here to ease them into it with their book School!

Why we love it
Cute illustrations and a simple storyline make this book a great addition to your library.

How to use it
Find a cozy spot and cuddle up together!

The benefits
Preparing your child for an experience before hand is a great way to ease any anxieties when they arise.

Dolphin Bath Book - $6.29

This silly dolphin just LOVES bathtime with his friends - it's the perfect time for all that silly squeaking and swimming - and your little one will love it too! Waterproof, and totally washable, this bathtime book will be a no-brainer when it comes to a wild adventure on the high seas (well, in the bathtub at least).

Why we love it
Easy to use, easy to clean, easy to love. This Bath Book from Gardner Publishing means that the world of books doesn't have to stop at the bathroom door!

How to use it
Throw it in the tub and forget about it! No need to worry about soggy pages or running ink - this bathtime book is built for the open water.

The benefits
Children love to read, and now you can teach them the value of a good book and a relaxing bath! Or at least you can try!
Luna Protein Bars - $2.50

With your health in mind, Luna Bar is created with 70% organic ingredients. It steers clear of synthetic fertilizers, harmful chemicals, high fructose corn syrup, and other unhealthy additives.

Why we love it
A delicious snack that we don't have to feel guilty about? Sounds perfect.

How to use it
Rip that baby open. It's full of the good stuff women need to keep running the house, and running after the kids.

The benefits
Made with women's health in mind, the Luna Bar is specifically formulated to keep your energy up. Way up - because we all need a little boost.

The total for my Bluum box this month was $41.57 which was a lot more compared to our last month's box. This month I was really surprised that Bluum included so many books. I just love to read and you can find me "reading" a book sitting in my chair on a daily basis. The LunaBars weren't really a hit since mommy isn't a fan of protein bars. I enjoy stuffed animals but may pass the bear along. I'm just happy that I got books.

  1. What a cute idea. I wish I had this when my son was little.

  2. My youngest loves books too :) And I agree about protein bars, they all taste a little like chalk to me, but my kids like them. Maybe kids don't notice the taste as much!

  3. What a great box! I love everything that came with it. I know my kids would really enjoy this too! This is my first time hearing of this subscription boxes. I love subscription boxes!

  4. We love books here too and so I would have loved this box. That bath book would be a great hit.

  5. Wow I love what's in the box. Another box I would surely check out! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I hadn't heard of this box before. There's some cute baby stuff in there!

  7. What a great subscription box that any kid would love to have. I am thinking that would be great to send to children who have to stay in a hospital for an extended time.

  8. Oh my what a cute bear that is. Plus books I'm all for a good book.
