When the folks over at Googaro asked if I wanted to check out one of their monthly boxes I was super excited. They are one of the subscriptions on my “to try” list (which I will admit is long, but still) so this was perfect! In case you haven’t heard of them, Googaro is a monthly care package for babies (up to age 3) which includes 4-5 full-sized mom-approved products tailored to your baby’s age delivered right to your door.
Googaro ships via USPS Priority Mail at the beginning of the month. According to their FAQ, boxes typically arrive by the 15th of the month – which mine did.
I loved the packaging on Googaro and it felt like I was opening a present! At first glance everything in the package looked great and totally usable, which is always key ;).
Googaro has a great information card which you know I love. It’s got pictures plus plenty of information on each product, which is great. The only thing that would make it better is if it had prices. Oh, I should mention that WB got the box for a 1-2 year old. Boxes are broken down by 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-2 years and 2-3 years. Here’s what it included:
~Zoli Straw Sippy Cup ($12): I love trying out new sippy cups and this is one brand I have never tried! WB is the perfect test subject because he loves to throw them on the ground and I love to see if they leak when they are tossed (FYI most do). This looks to be the same style as the Skip Hop ones I love, except with handles. Oh, and I should mention that I don’t mind at all that it’s purple. Yes, I have boys, but they can certainly use a purple cup. We have Dora ones and L uses them and could care less.
~Green Sprouts Waterproof Bib ($12.50): I am going to pack this in my bag as an emergency I forgot to bring an extra shirt bib (this happens all the time) and also as a smock for painting projects.
~Rich Frog Beastie Ball (Hoots) ($8.95): I thought this looked familiar when I opened the box and it turns out it’s because we have the Owl K’NIT Block (I think it came in a CL box last fall)!! What are the odds we’d end up with a matching set? WB has an amazing arm and hopefully we can use this to start to learn to play catch (instead of just “throw”)! Why do kids learn how to catch anyway? I know it took L awhile, but I don’t recall the exact age?
~ARC Thermometer ($5.98): I have an in-ear thermometer that I love (and that I have used a ton because L used to get sick ALL the time), so I will probably end up throwing this in my travel bag or leaving it up-north. A sick kid is bound to happen up there or on vacation so it’ll be nice to have to use to determine the level of illness (*).
~Garden Veggie Straws ($1): These were an extra treat in the box and are much appreciated. L and I both love them!
All totaled I came up with a value of $40.43 for the August Googaro Box. I am quite pleased with my first box and am considering picking up a subscription for WB!
