Box: July 2017 Target Baby Box (now sold out)
Previous boxes were April 2017 and October 2016
Newborn Baby Not Included
Squeakaa makes a cameo appearance. Look at all that baby chub!!!
Cost: $7 clams (Big spender 2 clams more than the previous April box)!
See I told you baby was not included.
Kick Back and Let’s Get This Box Unboxed:
Here are the first peeks of the box which has a gold top and white bottom with gold dots!
Got the same coupon code like last box ($10 off $50 baby purchase)
Ahhh… The “Binki” as my family calls it. It has magical properties.
Note: Never underestimate the power of a fresh binki!
Only Pipsqueak and Squeakaa are the only participants of this glorious magical device. But they only liked the circle one. I don’t want to waste a perfectly pristine binki for this review so it will be gifted to a new momma-to-be to start her army support of binkys.
Never too early to start a hoard of binkys!
Let’s wash this baby. Because I am sentimental, I threw out my crunchy tendencies and finished the sample bottle of chemical J&J baby shampoo at the hospital. This seems mild and not heavily fragranced, smells like a baby should, and reminds me of a lighter somewhat attempt of a crunchier chemical version of J&J so I used it. I washed all four Squeakers with this, plenty of sudsing action on water, hair, and body, washed out well, no one rashed out, and everyone smelled like babies. The End.
Who can say no to that baby elephant holding a flower on that label! No one!!!
Too fragranced with a scent of a Dove. This will be gifted away.
However, I can say no to doves. But that gold baby dove is tugging at my heart.
Ok I KNOW this is french but as much as I want my bebe to be petite Parisians, I do not lotion them up. I actually had a big bottle of this stuff left over from Pipsqueak that I had to throw out. So this will be gifted away.
Please know that my crunchiness does override my tendency to have my bebe be petite Parisians, so I do recommend Mustela’s foam newborn shampoo for any bebes its non-drying and also what I would like to call “Baby ‘Mice Water’ Windex” because if you have any baby parts that need to be extra squeaky clean, this product works wonders.
It may work wonders but it will not have your Parisian bebe squeak. Your bebe needs to come with the squeaky toy feature to “squeak”
I used this before when I had my first squeaker I bought.all.the.diaper.creams before bebe was born just to prepare for any “poonamis” that bebe would deal when bebe arrived on the outside. It was thick to my recollection and nothing to repurchase again. For non-crunchiness, I recommend Desitin in the blue (not purple tube). For crunchiness (and for the love of all things lavender), I recommend this product that I received via Ecocentric Mom. Because I am pretty much set in my ways this will be gifted to a new mom who will also likely have her own arsenal of diaper rash creams.
Most subscription box newborns start out with their first army consisting of diaper rash creams.
Ok I have forgotten but now I remember that I LOVE these more than WaterWipes (introduced to me in April’s Target Baby Box). Both wipes are equally expensive as well. This is not as “wet” as WaterWipes, but has a quilty thickness to it plus it does not bunch up when you pull a wipe out like WaterWipes. And I love the 30 count packaging so nice and less bulky to put in the diaper bag.
I have a thing for luxury baby wipes.
Yea for detergent! I always like using free and clear samples to switch it up when laundering everyone’s clothes except my husband who is sensitive to majority of detergents. When I use these detergents I feel less guilty because its less likely that any residue (if any) would not affect him. I actually used the Dapple Laundry Strips from Target’s April Box and I find it fun. I have no clue whether it worked better than Tide Free & Clear Pods but it definitely makes laundry a little more interesting for me.
It does not take much to interest me. I look forward to my next set of subscription box soap nuts if they grace my presence again.
With baby subscription boxes, one accumulates many Honest Co products. This is my third or fourth hand sanitizer spray and it will by squirreled away to a useful pouch for future usage.
Heart the lavender scent!!!
Love this! I love Target Baby Boxes! Like the Lego Movie (which I admittedly have not watched fully) “Everything is Awesome”! Such a great value and having baby travel items are always appreciated (although full size items are greatly appreciated lol)! The winner of the box was the expensive travel baby wipes. I am with my last pouch of overpriced WaterWipes which I was introduced to in the previous Target Baby Box. However, previously I bought the Seventh Generation and those are nicer but also overpriced. Such a nice luxe treat over my tried and true Amazon purple wipes (which are much better plus economical then Pampers and Huggies wipes IMHO).
Live and learn then get Luvs. I did not major in Marketing friends just telling ya the good stuff!
Did you order any Target Boxes recently? Please report and comment below (even the random ones)!
