Review - Nonabox October box

I was very excited to receive this months Nonabox. This is the second ever box following on from the September box last month.

Again the packaging for the box is lovely and the same as last time. I still love it! I opened my box with excitement waiting to see what was inside. It was hardly staying shut so popped open. Inside the tissue paper I saw more Cloud B goodies. This was a little disappointing as I had expected different products from different brands. I got two Cloud B items. One being the Sheep on the Go and the other a sheep and burp cloth gift set.

We also got a Pasito A Pasito dummy holder, some Halos n Horns baby lotion, an Ella's kitchen food pouch, a Pebbles Pedi Wand and some animal biscuits. Also included were 2 bonus samples, another pack of water wipes and some tea.

The prices for everything are below...

Pasito A Pasito dummy holder- £15.90 
Halos N Horns Baby Moisturizing Lotion- £4.07
Ellas Kitchen Stage 3 Thai Curry- £1.89
Cloud B Sheep on the go- £16.20 
Pebbles Pedi Wand- £2.99
Cloud B Burp Cloth and Sheep pack- £31.50
Leibniz Zoo Animal Biscuits   - £1

A total of £70.56

The box is still good value as you only pay £25 but this box isn't suitable for a toddler at all. If you took away the food items added a dummy and some stretch mark cream it would be the perfect late pregnancy/new baby box.

Paige won't use half of these things. Giving a parent of a 17 month old a burp cloth set is a bit silly in my eyes. And that set is priced at £31.50 which I think is a lot of money! Paige doesn't use a dummy so has no need for a dummy holder. We won't use the lotion as Paige has eczema and although it is hypoallergenic which is great but I still wouldn't use it on her sore skin.  The pedi wand may get some use by me but the leaflet does say it helps tired, pregnant legs and mine aren't. She will eat the biscuits and maybe use the Ella's kitchen pouch although the Ella's kitchen meal from last month is still sitting in the cupboard. As are the water wipes from last month too. Paige may carry around the sheep on the go just because she loves teddies so much. She already has a soothing animal that plays music when she sleeps though.

I am sorry to say I am disappointed in my box this month. It would be perfect as a pregnancy or new baby box with a few items changes but sadly isn't a good toddler box.

Next month I would love to see some more toddler aimed products.

Have you tried Nonabox?

Thanks for reading,
