other boxes. The June box was way better. I even think the May box was better. I will update this if I end up liking the July box. I feel like Ella is more advanced than this box. If she was younger it might be better. I didn't already own anything from this box though. I don't really think this is much of a review as it is just showing you what's in the box. Maybe I should wait a few weeks to post in the future to see how Ella likes everything. (For reference, we got this box 4 days before Ella turns 7 months old.)
Here's the descriptions of everything and pricing if buying each item.
Issie Security Blanket from Aden + Anais - $9.98 (but you would buy a 2 pack for 19.95)
Pack N Go Mini Mobile from Tiny Love - $12.95
Feeding Spoon from Oogaa - $6.99 + 1.99 shipping (5.99 on oogaa + $5.00 shipping)
Pur-Protect SPF 30 from PurLisse (.5 oz) - $6.33 ($21.54 for 1.7 oz or $55 from purlisse site and I can't find the sample size price)
coupon code for free shipping
The total is $38.24
As a reminder the box cost me $17.76.
Everything in the box seems so expensive to me. Perhaps it seems that way because I didn't like it. Ella has a ton of spoons already but she might like these. I'm not sure we'll even use the mobile but I will try to figure it out. I do wear sunscreen and have to wear it practically all the time for the next 6 months because of my neck but I tend to wear a higher SPF. I also have a small travel size of sunscreen already in the diaper bag. I will put this one in my purse. Sometimes I just put 1 diaper and wipes in my purse so having sunscreen there might be good. Ella might like the hold the little blanket in the car but I'm not even really sure. I think that blanket might end up being the best thing in the box but I'm not sure.
I notice I buy Ella toys a little before she is ready for them since you don't know when you will get to the store and you don't know when she will start liking it. I wonder if I would have said Ella's birthday was a month or two earlier if we'd end up with the same things. I tried to google but since the July box only came to us yesterday and some people's haven't even arrived yet, there are on posts about it yet.
What do you think of services like Citrus Lane? I feel like they are popping up for everything. I have been debating Stitch Fix for me but haven't fully decided.
After thinking about this box and the previous boxes, I logged into citrus lane and changed her birthday to 1 month earlier. Maybe the box will seem more age appropriate. I'd rather have things a month early versus too late.
