As you may know the idea of Hip little one was born in 2008 when I became a proud mum of twins. I found it really hard to get out of the house, I didn’t get much further than the local supermarket let alone a clothing store or fancy shopping centre. I discovered the ease of online shopping and very much enjoyed (or should I say got addicted to?) getting the newest products delivered to my doorstep. If you like the idea of receiving lovely parcels filled with great baby or kids products you will love Bambino Box.

Bambino Box introduces Australian mums to a fabulous selection of products and brands by sending them out a Bambino Box every month. Each month you’ll receive a beautifully packaged box full of goodies tailored to suit your family, from clothing to food, from toiletries to handy products for at home, even some thoughtful gifts for mum, each box holds new surprises and you’ll never know beforehand what you’ll get!

So how does it work? Simply join Bambino Box online and tell them a little bit about your family, that way you’ll always receive products that you can actually use. You can order a single box, sign up for multiple months or send a Bambino Box to a family that is very special to you. For expecting mums there is even a huge Pregnancy Gift Box available, now that is gift giving made easy!

Now rest assured, a Bambino Box comes with a surprisingly affordable price tag. A single box costs $21.95 but the value of the products inside is much higher so you always get great value for money (and you can save even more when you subscribe). For example, this month’s ‘Spring has Sprung’ box has an average value of $90! One of my favourite gifts was this super soft wool blend Buddha Baby beanie valued at $19.95, that’s pretty much the value of the box already.

Some subscribers were lucky enough to find one of these fantastic Dreambaby Mag Lock 4-packs ($44.95) in the September Bambino Box. In my time as a store manager we used these child safety locks in the store and we loved them, in fact customers were always asking me about them because they are invisible from the outside. Good thinking Bambino Box team, looking forward to seeing more of your work!
