The theme for this month is "sitting" which is great for us because that is exactly what stage our baby girl is in! The box was pretty heavy and packed full! I was impressed already on first glance.
Here are the Contents:
I loved this box! I was shocked by how many items it contained and that there were really no "samples". The parenting book alone is marked on the back as US $15 (which is what I paid for the whole box with a discount code). Here is the value (I googled each item):
Bath book and toy - $8.99
Brain Rules for Baby: How to Raise a Smart and Happy Child from Zero to Five - $15
Vapus "anti-bottle - $9
Ella's Squeeze Pouch - $1.99
Sippi Grip 2 pack - $15
KIdz Banz sunglasses - $17
Dreambaby bath thermometer - &7.99 on amazon - other providers offer it for $3.99
Total - $70.97 (using the cheaper price for the thermometer) - An excellent value at $25 for a one month subscription!
Now onto citrus lane...
This box was on the light size, which was a little disappointing considering it's already much smaller size. It is for a 34 month old boy. Here is the initial view
Honestly, i was pretty disappointed with this box. it was my first so I was able to get it at a discount, but had I paid the $25 for the month I would have been very disappointed! Here is the cost breakdown:
iPlay hat - $7.99-$12 (differing sites)
Sandcastle mold - $4.74
Chalk - $4.56
Sunscreen - (2.7 oz full size is on sale for $11.85 So I will be generous and say this is worth...) $9
Total Value: $30 and that is using hte $12 price for the hat
I have a credit on my citrus lane account so I will probably get on e more month - maybe this was just an off month, but based on the contents of this box, I would not renew if I did not have the credit. It seems to me that the only thing my son will be excited about is the sidewalk chalk - which was the item with the least value. Sorry Citrus Lane, but BLUUM blew you out of the water in my opinion!
Here is a coupon code to both companies if you are interested - you may have loved the things in my CL box, and if so go for it! Maybe next month's box will be great! But, I would HIGHLY recommend BLUUM! I was thoroughly impressed!
