November Nonabox

You may or may not have read my previous post on October’s Nonabox, I was so pleased with it and I couldn’t wait for my November’s box to arrive.

I signed up for a three month subscription and this box will sadly be my last. Every box has turned up late, and they are getting shipped out later and later in the month (we are now two days away from December).

Because October’s box was so good, I couldn’t wait to open this box but I was slightly disappointed……

At this point, I’m fit to burst with excitement because I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

The first item is a JoJo Maman Bebe changing mat clutch, it’s valued at £15. It’s very well made and made with a wipe clean material but I can’t help thinking that it’s a bit of a pointless item, I just don’t get it! It’s a clutch bag that has a changing mat inside, ok, as separate items yes but why put them together? There’s no room inside the bag for anything else, you may fit in a single nappy and a travel pack of wipes but that’s it. Plus, most parent already have a changing bag with mat inside.

20131128-034148 pm.jpg Here we have two Christmas books, a Fireman Sam book and a Mr Men book, both priced at £2.99 each. I don’t feel like these are age appropriate, the Fireman Sam book is 3+. I think I will put them away and bring them back out next Christmas.

Next up, is the Plum stage 1 porridge. Although I like the Plum products for Willow, we are past stage 1 and this will go unused.

JoJo Maman Bebe Henry rabbit comforter
This comforter was the one thing that we really liked, Willow tried to grab it straight away! It’s perfect for little hands, super soft and cuddly. I think it’s reasonably priced at £9 but I’ve just been on the JoJo Maman Bebe site and they no longer stock this item. I thought the Nonabox was a way to try new and exciting products, not products that have been discontinued?

We also had 2 x 7 ml sachets, one of Humphrey’s Corner baby bath and one baby shampoo. We’ve just used the bubble bath, it smells rather nice and bubbles up really well considering it was only 7ml. I would definitely consider buying these in the future, especially as they are organic, vegan, cruelty free and are mild on babies sensitive skin.

JoJo Maman Bebe pocket high chair retails at £14. It may come in handy, it may not but I will put it in the changing bag just incase.

Nonabox say that their boxes are tailored to suit but I don’t think this is the case as they are sending out goods that aren’t age appropriate. Looking at their facebook page, a lot of people feel the same. Two out of the three boxes have been amazing but I could help but feel let down by this months box. It did have the value in products, but the main product it useless to me and a few other products were not age appropriate.

Nonabox

A few months ago, I signed up to Nonabox, it’s cost £25 a month but is discounted when you subscribe to 3 or more boxes.

Products are tailored to suit, depending on babies age, sex, breast or bottle fed and if they have a dummy or not.Yesterday I received our second Nonabox and I was really, really impressed with the contents and you are guaranteed to get more than £25 worth of products.

Everything comes in a lovely box that’s sealed with a ribbon and wrapped with tissue paper.

I was quite excited when I unwrapped the tissue paper, I think we will use everything thats included in this months box.

Cloud B Sleep Sheep
A lovely soft sheep, that makes noises to help baby sleep. It has different sound setting, mothers heartbeat, whales, rain and the ocean and also time settings, 23 and 45 minutes. It has a Velcro strap, so it can be easily attached to babies cot. This product covers the cost of the box alone!

Cloud B sheep rattle and burp cloth set
A smaller sheep that’s a rattle and easy for baby to hold, lovely quality, just like the other Cloud B products and a set of three burp cloths. The burp cloths have a nice satin trim and feel quite thick compared to other burp clothes I’ve seen.

MAM Bite and Relax Teether
Willow hasn’t had a chance to try this yet but I do expect it to be of good quality like their other products. It comes in a little box that can also be used to sterilise it in the microwave , fab idea!

Beaba 360 spoon
We haven’t had a chance to use this yet but I did take it out of the packaging to see how it works. It’s very clever design and great for little hands. When Willow will be feeding herself with cutlery, in a few months time, it will be great and really good for little ones co-ordination.

Halos N Horns moisturising lotion
From Halos N Horns, we have this baby moisturising lotion. With no nasties included, it’s suitable for little ones sensitive skin. We used it last night, after bath time. It absorbs easily with hardly any effort, non-greasy, has a light fragrance and comes in a decent sized bottle, which is value for money.

Ella’s Kitchen Wakey Wakey Apple and Mango Porridge
After breakfast this morning, Willow definitely approves, she scoffed the lot! I think the Ella’s kitchen packaging is so funky and different compared to other baby food products, their packaging really stands out in the supermarket. Even better, it’s 100% organic, so I feel like I’m feeding my baby quality food. It’s easy to make up, 1 spoonful of porridge to 5 spoons of babies milk.

Pasito a Pasito natural wooden rattle
A very pretty natural wooden rattle, made from beech and maple. It comes with an information card that says the rattle is painted with dyes that are danger free and harmless to baby. Very reassuring, especially when you have a teething baby and everything goes in their mouth!

Tea Pigs lemon and ginger tea
I don’t usually drink flavoured teas but I gave this a go, the lemon is very refreshing and you can drink it hot or cold. Also a bonus, it’s caffeine free!

Water wipes
Made from 99.9% purified water, these wipes are amazing for sensitive skin and can do a good job cleaning up after a horrible poonami! They are more expensive than other brands but I guess it all comes down to what you want to use and what your budget it.

Pebble UK PODO PRO file
A double sided foot file, for smoothing rough skin, it can also be used on hands. Perfect if you have some hard skin on your feet. Use it during or after a shower or bath and you will have lovely soft skin in no time. I don’t think I will use this but I know my husband definitely will, he’s in big heavy work boots all day and suffered with hard skin on his feet.
