Bluum May 2013 Cover Up and Balancing Act.

This is my second month with Bluum. I really enjoyed my first box and decided to also get a box for my 3 year old.  My 3 year old is almost 4, so I knew going in I might get some things that are too young for him.  Bluum sends out boxes every month with a theme according to the child’s age.  It is for 0-3 and you get 4-5 items every month.
This month, Bluum had a huge influx of customers from a Plum District deal (now expired) and they sent out their boxes a week late.  Their were several unhappy customers and Bluum finally released a statement about the late boxes.  While I admit, their customer service needs improving, I really do love the boxes.
I received two boxes this month: 15 month old Balancing Act and 3 year old Cover Up
Balancing Act 15 month old boy

The whole box
Theme card and coupon for $15.00 off a purchase at Chromatic Gallerie.  There were also coupons for Happy Family
mOmma spoon by Lansinoh (Bluum’s Price: $4.99,Amazon price: 7.00)
I am excited for my son to try this.  It looks easy for babies/toddlers to hold
Reusable sandwich wrapper (or other foods) by Kids Konserve (Bluum’s Price: $4.50 Amazon price $5.00)
I love this product and will use this.  I like the idea of re-using bags.
How do I feel set of 10 books (Bluum’s Price: $ 10.00, Amazon Price: 9.99).
I love books and any box that comes with books will make me happy.
There are 10 books and each talk about a feeling
I love that there is a case for them, so I won’t have them scattered everywhere
The book are also a very thick board book (Perfect for a teething toddler)
Melissa and Doug Butterfly Stacker (Bluum’s Price: $10.00, Amazon price $11.99)
I love Melissa and Doug.  We have many of their toys, but not this one!

Happy Family Snacks Rice Cakes in Carrot flavor & Yogurt and Fruit Snacks in Mixed Berry (Bluum’s Price: $3.00 each. Amazon Price $3.00 each)
We have never tried these, but I think my little guy will like them

Final Value: Bluum Prices: $39.00, Amazon’s prices $39.98

 

Cover Up: 3 Year old Boy
Whole box
Cover Up theme card, coupon for $15.00 off a purchase at Chromatic Gallerie, and a card from Pocket People (free shipping with a $50.00 purchase)
Melissa and Doug Cinco Starfish Hat (Bluum’s Price $9.00, Amazon Price: $12.49)
This is a cute hat that will protect my fair skinned little boy from the sun
My son loves this
Melissa and Doug Cinco Starfish Flip-Up Sunglasses (Bluum’s Price: 7.00, Amazon Price: 7.97)
My son loves sunglasses and he loved this so much, he wanted to wear them in the tub
Pocket People Ball (Bluum’s Price: $10.00)
This is made by Pocket People, which it a new company based on my research. This was a gift for mom but I gave it to my son.  He loves it.
BabyGanics Cover Up Kisses Lip Balm and Sunscreen in Apple Berry (Bluum’s Price: 3.99, Amazon Price:  $4.99)
This goes on clear and it perfect for your little one’s lips
Pocket People Sam (Bluum’s Price: $10.00)
I was shocked by the price when I first saw it.  The doll is handmade and beautifully crafted.  Each doll has a little personality.  Everyone thinks Sam is shy but is is actually quite bold and brave.  I originally thought this was for my son but my email said it was for the mom.  I contacted Bluum for more information.  This is a collectible doll for mom.  I already gave it to my son, so it is sitting on a shelf in his room.  You can read more about the doll HERE
Two 7th Heaven masks.  These are one time use samples, therefore I am giving them a value of  $0, as you can request free samples from companies. (Bluum’s Price: $2.99)
Luna bar (Bluum’s Price $2.00)
I am not a fan of Luna bars, so my husband is getting this).

Final value Bluum’s Prices: $37.98.  Amazon’s prices (and other websites)$38.40)

 
 

Final Thoughts:  I really like both of my boxes this month.  I was disappointed in the doll, but both boxes were worth well over the $24.95 I paid.  I could remove the doll from my box and it would still be worth over $24.95.  I am going to continue my 15 month old’s subscription.  I canceled my 3 year old subscription as he is turning 4 and needs a older box.

    I want to try this but the boxes I’ve seen are so hit and miss and we can only afford one box a month and we’ve never really had any major issues with citrus lane… hopefully in the future we can add another box or two
