*April Nonabox Review

I’ve never been one for monthly subscriptions boxes. In fact I’d never even tried one before now unless you count Graze boxes (which are more frequent and you get to choose your products … so no I guess that doesn’t count!)

I’m not sure why I hadn’t tried them, it’s not that I’d heard anything bad about them, or been warned off them, I think it’s just that in my head I always thought if I wanted to buy products I’d buy them. I didn’t want to get stuck buying a box that contained items I either already had or didn’t like.

So when the lovely ladies over at Nonabox asked me to become a Nonabox blogger I was slightly sceptical as to whether or not I’d genuinely love them.

If you haven’t heard of Nonabox before it is a monthly subscription box service that accompanies you from pregnancy right through to your babies first two years.

Nonabox, compared to other subscription boxes, stands out for a few reasons. Firstly, the products sent to you are specific to your stage of motherhood which is great because it means that you’re less likely to receive an item that you don’t want or need.

Secondly, Nonabox prides itself on only using products that are of high quality and most importantly, are useful!

Lastly, all products are selected based on reviews of real mummies which I think is really comforting for a new mummy like me who doesn’t really have time to search for new products.  At the moment I pretty much go with what I see in the supermarket, or what’s been recommended to me by a friend or fellow blogger, so to have it all sent to my door in a handy box will be very convenient!

Well let’s get started: 

April’s box came beautifully packaged from the inside out

Even down to the gorgeous rabbit print inside the lid and the heart sticker to seal the tissue paper!

The box was full of goodies, I felt like a kid in a candy store!

There was a mixture of goodies for Rhys, Rabbit and myself which is great because no one gets left out 🙂

Here’s what was inside:

Plum baby Organic Mighty 4 Pouch (rrp £1.19) and Plum baby Little Yums organic nibble wafers (rrp £2.49)yums

We have already tried the Little Yums organic nibble wafers which were a big hit with Rhys! You can check out his review here. Even though we already had some, we were pleased to have more as he goes through them pretty quickly. 


He gave the Mighty 4 pouch a go and absolutely loved it! I had to show him how to use it at first …

but he soon got the hang of it!

It even helped with his pincer grip and dexterity strengthening!

The next thing that came out of the box was The Soother Company Soother – rrp £5


When I first fell pregnant I decided that I wouldn’t use a dummy, purely because I didn’t want to rely on one to settle my baby. However, now that Rabbit is here there have been numerous occasions when I’ve been really tempted to use one. So although I won’t definitely be using this (Rhys doesn’t use one either) I’ll be keeping it close by in case I make the decision to try one with Rabbit!

Next up … The Snooze Baby Sweet Dreaming taggy – rrp £12.95jh

I absolutely love this one! I know how much babies love the tags and labels on clothing and toys more than the clothing and toys themselves! This taggy is amazingly soft and fluffy on one side and has a funky pattern on the other. The tags are all varied sizes and textures which is fab for tiny fingers!

I’m going to save this one for Rabbit as Rhys has his favourite comforter already.

An organic lovers dream … Organic Babies Body Wash and Shampoo (rrp £7.25)photo 1-6

This lavender body wash and shampoo smells absolutely lovely. It’s made by the Green People an is fab for sensitive skin like little Rabbits!


Here’s another one for Rhys – Mega Blocks First Builders Block Buddies  (rrp £2.99)

Rhys is at the age where he likes to slot and stack things. Of course he also loves knocking things down, but mega blocks are fab for his age and level!

Last but not least, a little something for muma! Arbonne Intelligence Rejuvenating Cream  (rrp £29.00)photo 4-5

Arbonne is a US company based on botanic principles. They have a real green image which I love and this particular cream is so light and non-greasy it’s perfect for my skin!


Overall I was really impressed with the April Nonabox. I loved that there was something in there for not only both the boys but for me as well.

The contents were varied in that there was something to eat, something to play with, toiletries  to use and more. This was great because it meant that we got to use it in a variety of aspects of our day to day routine!

The only downside for me personally was that we might not get a chance to use the dummy but as it’s only a small item in the box that wasn’t really a problem.

If you’re interested in subscribing to Nonabox they retail at £25 per box with free delivery! You can subscribe to 3, 6 and 12 month prepaid plans where you save money on each one and you can unsubscribe at any time!

The contents of the box is always guaranteed to be worth more than the price of the box which is really reassuring to know as I’ve heard with some boxes you can pay a lot and end up with tester sizes that aren’t worth as much!

I’m very excited to see what May’s Nonabox has to offer!

Thanks for reading! xx
