So yesterday me & Isaac received our first Sassy Bloom box. We (I) was so excited when the postman knocked on delivering two parcels. At first I wasn’t sure what one was but I ripped it open a bit to realise it says on the front of both sassy bloom!!!! 2 parcels? I was baffled!!
How pretty is the little box you get it in?! It would make a lovely present if you were the type of person that liked a bit of a risk 😉 That’s the only thing if you gift it, you won’t know for sure what you’re going to get in it! Everyone loves getting a box of surprises though don’t they? so I suppose it would make it even more fun if no one knew what the surprise was, say at a baby shower for example! Here’s what I received in mine…
Let me talk you through them…
MOO CUP! (Retail price: £4.95)
When I first seen this I thought this was pretty unsuitable for Isaac, it looks like an accident waiting to happen! A cup + no lid = disaster. To be completely honest a cup = disaster with Isaac. He likes to pour them out all over himself. Isaac hasn’t taken to cups well, he has one cup that he will use if he wants a drink but he makes it pretty clear he doesn’t like to use it! After closer inspection of the cow cup I noticed that you can’t spill anything out of it, you can only suck it out! There is a special valve that stops the liquid inside from coming out which I love the idea of. Today on our travels I could allow him to hold the moo cup in his pram himself and not worry about him being soaked, also not worry that he might need a drink every 5 mins in this hot weather because he has it there on hand! He was quite good with drinking out this too, I won’t speak too soon as it’s still day 1 but I have high hopes for this little moo! Below is a picture of Isaac putting the Moo cup to the drip test and it passed with flying colours!!!
Twilight sea turtle. (Retail price: £29.81)
This is my absolute favourite!!!! It’s a gorgeous soft turtle body with a hard shell which projects stars onto baby’s ceiling! It gives you the option of green or blue stars and sun or just green or blue! There are 5 pictures of sea creatures on the shell also which have a button to light them up too.
This was why I had the extra parcel because it was too big to fit in the box! I tried this out in Isaac’s room last night and it is lovely. There are 2 little things I would change about it: they are that it doesn’t move and it doesn’t make any noise. I think it would be PERFECT if the stars rotated and it had a bit of a lullaby to it, but in all fairness I think it’s meant to be a night light so it does it’s job. Isaac was fascinated by it! He just kept staring up at it, he just wanted to grab hold of it and see what was going on!!
It has a really soft belly and legs and a hard shell, i love this product!! I tried to get a good picture of the stars on the ceieling but I took in it in the daytime with the curtains closed so they weren’t as good as I hoped. I don’t think any photograph will do this justice but here it is anyway to give you an idea and a little video of Isaac trying to catch the stars…
In the end he settled with the cute little book you get with it…
Summer – The Original TinyDiner (Retail price: £9.99)
This is something that I wouldn’t even dream of buying myself, but now I’ve got I’m glad I have! It’s a place mat basically that fold up quite small so you can pop it in your changing bag. I’ve tried it out and it’s great! It keeps all the food on it, and it has suction pads to stick to the table, which as a parent you know is great if you don’t want it in baby’s mouth, on their head or on the floor! I love the thought of taking this out when we go out for meals without thinking ‘oh I don’t wanna take up the space in my changing bag with that thing!’ and without the worry of your baby picking food up off a unfamiliar table.
This is it on my table, you can see the food catcher at the end in case any food was to fall onto babies lap as it does! It is big enough for a baby to eat off, 46 cm by 33 cm and has a groovy little hey diddle diddle nursery rhyme and design on it which you can vaguely see in my photo but it looks even better in person!
If I was buying it myself I would have chosen blue but the greens not too bad. It also comes in pink for the girlies!
Bumkins wet bag (Retail price: £11.99)
This will be really useful for when we go swimming or when Isaac has an accident outside of his nappy! It’s so roomy, I cant wait to see how much I can fit in here!
You just simply pop any wet clothes/ cloth nappies into the bag and it keeps it all sealed, the wetness and the smell! Which is fab because i’ve always had that worry of putting dirty things into Isaac’s changing bag so I use plastic bags which is annoying! Another great point of the wet bag is that has a strap that velcros together so you could even pop it on the handle of your buggy/pram so you can put it where ever you like.
The cute little owl design doesn’t hurt anyone either does it!! 😉 I think this is a great idea and I can’t wait to feel the weight lifted off my shoulder when I have a scenario to use this in!
Ulubulu dummy (I can’t find the exact one, but around £5.93 when converted from $)
Isaac loves his dummy, I was a little dissapointed because I have heard of Ulubulu dummies before and I know they do personalised dummies. When I seen the bag I though YESS! a dummy with Isaac’s name on, but it wasn’t! It was some kind of funky design.
I’m not sure what the design is, it’s some kind of dinosaur I believe but I am MOST PROBABLY wrong! Please don’t get me wrong, it’s a great dummy. Its well made and I can tell that the personalised logo isn’t going to come off no matter what he does with that dummy! Isaac love it’s, they’re a great sized dummy and it doesn’t matter which way he puts it in his mouth which is great!!
The whole box toilled up to about £62.67 at retail price so it’s an BARGAIN!
All in all I absolutly loved my sassy box, and i’m thinking the next box will help me decide whether to continue with my subscription!
