November NonaBox Review

Last week saw the arrival of our third Nonabox....and as always, as soon as I opened the door and saw the delivery driver standing there with it I felt a little twinge of excitement!

I know it sounds silly but I LOVE these boxes so much and get so excited about tearing into them to see whats inside!

I have subscribed for years to beauty boxes and never felt half as excited about the contents as I do with Nonabox!

So....what was inside this month?!

As always, the contents did NOT disappoint!

We received:

1) Jojo Maman Bebe Changing Clutch Bag - RRP £15.00

I have to say, as soon as I saw the Jojo Maman Bebe label I was excited as I`m a big fan of the brand!! The clutch bag is a lovely stylish design, and a great idea - it contains a changing mat and enough space for a few nappies and wipes, and mummy essentials - perfect for when you DON'T want to lug around your every day heavy, overloaded changing bag but just need a few essentials!!! I will definitely get a lot of use out of this, particularly if we go on cruises in the new year as I can always nip back to the cabin if I need anything other than what fits into this bag - ideal!!!!

2) Jojo Maman Bebe Pocket High Chair - RRP £14.00

This has to be one of the best ideas I've ever seen! The packaway pocket highchair is exactly what it says - a highchair that fits into your pocket!!
You fold it out and attach it to most chairs, so that you have a highchair wherever you are!
This will get a lot of use from me as when we're visiting my sister at dinner time, its difficult to feed Tyne as she doesnt have a highchair - now we can attach this to her dining chair and we're sorted!!!

3) Jojo Maman Bebe Rabbit Comforter - £9.00

This super cute little guy has barely been out of Tyne's hands since he arrived! He loves playing with material and sucking on things atm, and this rabbit is ideal and I know its safe for him to be playing with - he's also very cute!

4) Fireman Sam & Mr Men Books - RRP £2.90 each

These books are perhaps a little old for Tyne just yet, but no doubt he will enjoy them when he is a little older and I love that they're seasonal and Christmassy!

5) Plum Stage 1 Baby Porridge - RRP Approx £2.50

I was a little bit confused as to why we received a Stage 1 porridge as Tyne is now well into Stage 2, but I guess some babies his age may not be and its better to have a stage lower which he can still use than a stage higher which may go out of date before its used - so makes sense when I think about it! I like Plum as a brand so we will certainly use this.

6)Humphreys Corner Shampoo & Bubble Bath Sample Sachets

A nice little extra which will be fun to try out at bathtime!

Overall Verdict:

Once again, I am blown away by the high quality items in the box - highly trusted and sought after brand named items are included, with the contents being worth over £45 when the box only costs £25....great value for money!!!

I was once again very impressed with the box - and I am absolutely thrilled that we have been chosen to become long term Nonabox bloggers so will continue to review their amazing boxes!!
