July's theme is "journeying out from the house," and the items are meant to "keep you prepared wherever you go this summer." Its contents include a Tiny Love Pack & Go Mobile that folds down nicely for transport and clips onto anything for playtime, an Aden+Anais Burpy Bib that doubles as a burp cloth and a bib, Aden+Anais Mum+Bub Soothing Ointment that soothes anything from diaper rash to chapped lips, a NurturMe Organic Food Packet filled with quick-dried fruits and vegetables, Me4Kids Little Buddy Wipes that kill germs without the sting of alcohol, and some kind of offer to make your own Postagram postcard from your smartphone.
It might actually make sense to do these posts a couple of weeks after receiving the box, because by now, we've had a chance to actually try out some of the products. We absolutely love the portable mobile. We've clipped it on the car seat, the stroller, and most of the time, it lives on the bouncy seat. Arlo goes crazy over it because it hangs down farther than the toys that are attached to the bouncy seat—so he can reach them really well and even shove them into his mouth. The bell on the mobile makes a really pretty chime-like sound, and the other gadgets on it add tons of visual and tactile interest. This might be Arlo's favorite thing in the world.

I can't get enough of the Aden+Anais Burpy Bib. I get sad when I have to put it in the hamper. It's made of the soft muslin that Aden+Anais is known for, and could it be more convenient? A nice big burp cloth that snaps together and becomes a cute bib? Yes, please. We'll definitely be adding more of these to our collection soon.
We haven't had a reason to use the ointment or wipes, but they're in the diaper bag, and I'm sure they'll come in handy someday!
