BabyGuy Box First Impressions

When I was pregnant, I took a Baby Basics class at the hospital. My instructor mentioned the Baby Guy (Jamie Grayson) in her presentation and I immediately started following him on Facebook. He is great for baby gear tips and is a great advocate of car seat safety (which I love).

Almost two years ago, he launched his BabyGuy Box. It’s a subscription box but you can also order individual boxes without the monthly commitment. The boxes are curated by Jamie and his sister Jennifer. The themes change monthly and they do tend to sell out so grab it early in the month or you can subscribe.

I have gotten one before but it’s been awhile so I wanted to try it again. When I saw June’s theme was travel I knew this was the box for us. We have a trip coming in July so I was hoping for some cool and travel friendly items.

It comes it a fairly small box but it’s well packed with very little waste. June’s box contained 5 items all suited for summer travel. There was a book, a reusable sticker board, a lunch bag, a backseat organizer, and an insect repellant. I did a single month so the cost was 39.99 but there are price breaks for subscriptions. Overallย  though I looked at the individual prices for these products and the cost of only 3 items hit $45 so it’s a great value for the price.

First, let’s talk about the backseat organizer from 3 Sprouts. I was so pumped to get this because I keep all of Lex’s stuff in a bag in the floor of my car and things are constantly falling out or going missing under the seats. This is the perfect solution-it’s functional and the hedgehog is super cute.

There was also a 3 Sprouts hedgehog lunch box. This also comes at a good time because Lex has had the same school lunch bag for two years and is in need of a new one. Again, hedgehog=adorable.

Next, a Play Scene from Mudpuppy. I had never seen these before but they are amazing. We got At the Zoo but there are a ton of different ones to choose from. This is a sturdy book with a zoo scene inside and reusable stickers to make your play scene anything. I am totally taking this on the plane in July!

The final two products were a book by Stephen Cheatham called Off to the Park and an Eco-Armour Insect Repellant. Off to the Park cool because the pages are interactive. Lex can practice tying a shoe or feel all the different textures as we read it. The Insect Repellant is also a moisturizer and safe for children. The smell is a lovely lemon scent and not only does it repel mosquitoes but can also reduce swelling if you get a bug bite. We don’t have a ton of mosquitoes in Colorado but this will come in handy on our Florida trip!

Overall, I am thrilled with this purchase. Lex can use every single thing in here and if we won’t use it for travel we can use at home. It was worth the money and I would purchase again. They are out of the June box but I linked most of the products above. Let me know in the comments if you decide to check this out!
