January 2018 Bluum Review!

Hey everyone! Today’s Mommy Minute is going to be a review of the Bluum subscription box!

Bluum is $33.99 a month and it’s a monthly subscription box for moms and kids, from pregnancy to preschool. Each box is customized to your child’s age and the stage they might be in.

There normally isn’t a theme, but I have this box customized to my son, Gibson, who is currently 3.

Melissa & Doug Primary Lacing Beads, $11.49.

This set includes 30 wooden beads and 2 laces and is intended for ages 3+. It helps teach sequencing, sorting, color and shape recognition and encourages fine motor skills. The back includes some extension activities that help use the toy to teach your child.

Gibson has a bead set like this from Melissa and Doug, but it’s not with laces, it’s with wooden dowels. He really enjoys these bead activities, but since he already has a similar set, I plan on hanging on to this for one of the girls. I do love getting Melissa and Doug products in subscription boxes though, they’re really wonderful quality products.

Stephen Joseph Bath Mitt & Bath Crayons, $10.99.

This set comes with a bath mitt with pocket, 4 non-toxic bath crayons, and 1 suction cup. This is available in many different animal designs, and we received a Dino! Gibson loves dinosaurs, and bath mitts are something that always come in handy. I love that this includes some bath crayons. All of the kids love using these in the tub. The other bath mitts I have don’t include suction cups, so I love that this one does because it’ll make storage and drying so much easier!

Potty Shields Extra Large Disposable Toilet Seat Covers in Sports Theme, $4.99.

I can only find these available online in a 12 pack for $9.99 and I received a 6-pack which is how I got to my $4.99 value. These are disposable toilet seat covers that are individually wrapped and come in a cute sports print.

Gibson is actually potty training at the moment, so these will be great to keep in the car for when we go out to help him get more comfortable with using public toilets while also keeping him safe. I think these are a great item to include in a box like this because it’s one of those things that I personally would never think of, but would be incredibly useful.

Bunny Loves To Read by Peter Bently, $9.66.

This is a really cute book. I love getting kids books in subscription boxes because it’s a great way to introduce new books to my kids. This one is an adorable picture book about a bunny that loves to read :). I haven’t read this yet, but my kids love bunnies, so I’m sure this will be an instant hit during our nightly storytime.

Start Little Learn Big One, Two, Three Sticker and Draw, $5.09.

This is another cute book, but this one is an activity book. This helps teach about first numbers, counting up and counting down. This includes over 150 first number stickers. Each page is a cute little activity that corresponds with the stickers including to help teach kids numbers.

I love books like this! And Gibson really enjoys doing activities like this. They’re a great “quiet time” activity that also teaches him something. This is a win for me, even if it is a simpler product.

Stephen Joseph Lacing Puzzle, $7.90.

This is a lion shaped lacing puzzle that includes 9 lacing card pieces and 3 colored laces. Similar to what I said with the Melissa and Doug product at the beginning of this review, Gibson really enjoys puzzles like these, and this one looks to be a bit more challenging, so it should be something that holds his attention and that can be passed down to the girls so everyone wins.


I really enjoyed this month. This box does seem to be a bit more hit and miss for me because I feel like the amount of products vary so widely every month, which I don’t really understand. However, this month was full of useful and educational items and I really couldn’t be happier with the curation. I am also happy with the value of this months products.

I paid $33.99 for $50.12 worth of products.

What do you think of this box? Have you ever tried any of these toys with your kids?
