Tonttu Baby Box Review #2

I was very excited (and surprised!) to receive my second Tonttu Baby Box to review! You can see my first box here. Tonttu Baby Box is a monthly subscription box designed for expecting parents and parents with young children. The box includes 5-7 gifts for baby, toddler, mommy and now daddy too! Many of the included items come from small, local businesses. You can choose a one month ($40), a three month ($117), or a twelve month ($420) subscription. When subscribing, you can specify if you are pregnant or the age and gender of your children so that the box is personalized just for you and your family! You also have the option to order a subscription as a gift!

Tonttu 2-5

I’m happy to report that Tonttu Baby Box now includes an information sheet, detailing everything in the box, where to reorder, and even discount codes for each of the products! And this one is especially fun, because it has a few surprises for DAD! Father’s Day is right around the corner… #hintdropped Micah is out of town this week, so he missed out on this unboxing! We’ll be saving his surprises for when he gets home next week!

Soft Lips by Lo & Behold (RV $5)

Tontuu 2-3

This lip balm is handmade in North Carolina! Use your finger or a small lip brush to apply. It made my lips super soft. I didn’t notice much of scent and definitely no color, so it’s perfect for sharing with Jaylin… matter of fact, I’m pretty sure it’s already made a home in her room. You can order some here and use code LoandBehold16 for 10% off!

The Original Squeeze (RV $14.99)

Tonttu 2-6

This looks similar to a bottle, but it’s actually a washable, reusable squeeze pouch! I wish I’d had this when I was home-making Dylan’s baby food… but she loves yogurt and applesauce, and this will work great when we’re in the car or at the ball field. You can buy one for your little ones here and use code SQUEEZEITFORWARD for 10% off!

Aftershave by Puur (RV $3)

Tontuu 2-2

This aftershave can be purchased on Etsy here. The store is based out of Idaho and sells a wide variety of products, including beard oil, soap, and natural deodorant. The Etsy shop has 4.5+/5 stars after over 9,400 reviews… so I have high hopes that Micah will love this! When you go to place your order, use code YAYFORYOU to get $5 off your $25 purchase!

Men Buffer by Spongelle (RV $18)

Tontuu 2-4

This thing is so cool! It’s a buffer with built in body wash, and it smells INCREDIBLE! Bye Bye Old Spice. It’s supposed to last 28 washes, and if Micah loves that smell as much as I do, we’ll definitely be reordering! They make some in lady scents too, so we might be trying those in the near future… Talk about a great gift! If you’d like to try them, you can purchase here and use code TONTTU30 for 30% off!

Playdough by Zdough (RV $7)

Tonttu 2-7

Something for the older kids! Playdough that smells like caramel apples? Yes, please. In addition to smelling delicious and coming in a cute (stackable!) container, it’s also super soft.

Tontuu 2-1

The kids loved it, and there was plenty for them to share! Other varieties include Lavender, Lemon, Lime, and Pumpkin Spice, to name a few. You can see all Z-dough has to offer on their website here and use code THANKSTOYOU for 10% off. These would make great birthday gifts or party favors!

I was really impressed with round 2 of Tonttu Baby Box! The combined retail value of the products included was $47.99, and a monthly subscription is only $40. Plus, if you use code MYHERODAD you can get 20% off your next purchase (making your first box only $32)! I love the added value of being introduced to products that I may otherwise have never tried!

Special thanks to Tonttu Baby Box for sending us their boxes to review! Opinions expressed, as always, were not influenced by anyone (other than my children).

Tonttu Baby Box Review #1

First night back from our trip to Sherra’s house, Micah and I are sitting in the living room recapping our days apart… He says, ‘oh, did you grab that box off the porch?’ Um, no. You didn’t tell me there was a box on the porch! From half-asleep-Netflix-ready-couch-warmer to Olympic sprinter in 2.3 seconds! I love my boxes and couldn’t wait to see what it was, and (lucky me!) it’s a new one!

Tonttu - 6

Tonttu Box is a monthly subscription box designed for expecting parents and parents with young children. The box includes 5-7 baby, toddler, and mommy items, many of which come from small, local businesses. You can choose a one month ($40), a three month ($117), or a twelve month ($420) subscription. When subscribing, you can specify if you are pregnant or the age and gender of your children so that the box is personalized just for you and your family! You also have the option to order a subscription as a gift! These would be such a fun, unique baby shower/congrats on your pregnancy/new baby gift!

Ok, I know you’re on the edge of your seat, so let’s get to it! Here’s what we got…

ZigZagRags Bandana Bib (RV $6.50) and Pumpkins Playthings Wooden Baby Rattle (RV $10)

Tonttu - 3

These are both items we can’t really use, but they’ll make great gifts for a friend. I did try the bib on Dylan just to see how it lays and it’s super cute! I love the pattern, and there are many more to choose from in ZigZagRags’ etsy shop! The material is thick and soft and would work great for catching baby drool! The rattle is very unique, and can be purchased in many different colors in Pumpkins Playthings’ etsy shop! I’ve never seen one like it!

Felt Lion Toy (RV unknown)

Tonttu - 2

This one is a little odd for me. It’s a small felt lion, and, while cute, I’m not sure of its purpose. There’s no card or tag offering an explanation. I’m assuming it’s a baby toy, but the eyes and nose are small beads… I’d be nervous to hand this one over to my baby, worried they’d be able to bite off those tiny pieces and swallow them.

Nature’s Purity Bath Oatmeal Milk & Honey Fizzing Foot Soak (RV $4), Bella Baby Wipes (RV $5), Bella B Tummy Honey Butter (RV $5.50)

Tonttu - 4

I am most excited about this foot soak! It smells like play dough on a beach. That may not be for everybody, but I love. I couldn’t find this exact soak on their website, but I’m sure this Lavender Lemon Foot Soak is just as nice if you’d like to try one. They’re made in Moses Lake, WA! The Bella B wipes have a strange smell. The package says they’re lavender scented, but it’s definitely not that… maybe aloe vera? Anyway, they’re hypoallergenic, alcohol and paraben free, so they’ll get used at our house for sure! You can buy a 3-pack here on Amazon! The Tummy Honey Butter smells nice, like cocoa butter. It’s a little oily, but I’ll definitely give it a go and see if it evens out my mommy skin! You can buy some on Amazon here!

Pink & Purple Teething Bracelet (RV unknown)

Tonttu - 1 Tonttu - 5

We loved this bracelet! Dylan has become obsessed with jewelry, and she loves all things girly and pink. I’m not sure she’ll actually use it to teethe, but that’s A-Okay! This was the second item in the box with no tag or description, so I’m not sure of the retail value or where you could purchase. I did find similar ones here on Amazon for $9.

So, if you’re keeping track, the total retail value of the items I was able to find is $31. If you add $9 (estimated) for the bracelet, you’re at the $40 cost of a single box, without adding any value for the lion! I’d call that a decent deal. And it gets better… YOU can get $10 off your next Tonttu Box using code MAMA at checkout! If you decide to give them a try, I’d love for you to come back and tell me all about it!

***I received this box at no cost to me for review purposes, but the thoughts and opinions shared here are all my own!***
