Melissa & Doug My First Paint with Water - Animals

Melissa & Doug My First Paint with Water – Animals $4.74 We have had a few of these before.  I personally love them because they are mess free.  T loves them because he gets to paint, paint, paint.

The Diggers Sticker Activity (Margaret Wise Brown)

The Diggers Sticker Activity (Margaret Wise Brown) $5.99 Margaret Wise Brown is famous for Goodnight Moon, but she has many other great books too.  This book is a story and a sticker book with over 100 stickers.  The cover also has a huge eraser.

Digger Stickers

The stickers are all divided into pages, so there are specific pages for each sticker.

Parragon Books Miles Of Fun $10.99 This box set has four bingo cards, plus a book of fun family games.  This is great for our family to do on long road trips.  The card vary in difficulty, so the adults can compete with the hard cards and the kids can get the easy ones.

Crocodile Creek Solar System Playground Ball, Blue, 5"

Crocodile Creek Solar System Playground Ball, Blue, 5″ $10.00 You really can’t go wrong with a good ball.  Crocodile Creek makes good quality products and we have never had a Crocodile Creek ball pop.  I personally love the Astronomy theme of the ball.

    I have to say I’ve had the worst experience with Bluum. I subscribed 3 months ago for a 3-month subscription and they’ve disappointed me each and every month. I chose my items and for the 1st box all of the items I chose became “unavailable” at shipment time so I was sent a surprise box that was very disappointing. I wrote customer service to find out what was going on, after I received the box, and they responded and apologized and assured me that I’d get all of my next month’s chosen items. Now onto month 2, they again sent me a “surprise box” like they’d done the 1st month; they did extend my sub by an additional month for my inconvenience. Move forward to month 3. I chose my items and waited patiently. Last Friday evening (2 days before shipment) I received an email that all of my items had become unavailable… AGAIN! Monday I received an email that the box contained no items and gave me 2 options… extend another month or log in and choose 4 items to be shipped within 5-7 days. So I logged in to make my choices. In the toy category there were 4 different glitter glues (3 years + up); a 5th glitter (3 years + up); stickers (3 years + up) and 2 infant toys (3-11 months). Come on now, the recipient of this box is almost 11 months old and none of those are age-appropriate for her. There are no choices in the clothing category and the rest of the choices in the other categories are very disappointing.
    I’m very surprised to see glowing reviews for Bluum. I’ve been a subscriber for 3-months and they’ve messed it up for all 3 months. I’m usually not a complainer and I’ve been a subscription box junkie for over 3 years. Bluum… why give me choices when it’s obvious that I really don’t have any?

    That sounds like a horrible experience. I am a subscriber too and haven’t had that experience, but it stink you have. I hope Bluum makes it right!
