Want to know what you’ll get in the Noobie Play Box? Here’s my Noobie Play Unboxing and Noobie Play Box review PLUS special promo code!
Course, you can get the Noobie Box Pregnancy Box with free shipping when you place an order of $29+ which may be why you’d like to know about their paid Noobie Boxes!
At the time, I didn’t realize that after pregnancy, they had subscription boxes for babies, as well as gift boxes for parents – Noobie Parents and Noobie Nurse.
But, I’ve since checked them out for myself and my babies. Here’s what you need to know about the ones for babies.
Noobie Box Year of Wonder Boxes for Babies
Noobie Box’s A Year of Wonders consists of 4 milestone baby boxes for your baby’s first year of life:
- Noobie Nest
- Noobie Eat
- Noobie Play
- Noobie One
Each box comes with 5 full-sized products for your baby, perfect for each milestone age.
You can subscribe to the whole series of boxes for $129.95 or pick and choose individual boxes for $38.95. All boxes come with free USA shipping.
After I had my fifth child, I actually received all four boxes in the Year of Wonders series starting in the summer of 2018 but I never got around to making a formal write-up and review of them, though I took photos and videos at the time.
Noobie Box reached out to me and asked if I’d like to receive another Year of Wonder boxes in exchange for review and to update my audience on what to expect from them, and I agreed, so here we are!
The bonus for you is that you’ll get a glimpse into what they have offered in the past, as well as what they are currently offering now in 2021.
Either way, you can always see what they are currently sending out in each box right on the Noobie Box website! There is no guessing or surprises!
I actually kinda love that. It helps you be a more informed consumer, maybe skipping a box altogether if you already have those items, for example.
Today I’m going to only do the write-up for the Noobie Play Baby Box, showing both the one I received in 2018 and the one I just received January 2021. Next, I will review the Noobie Eat box!

January 2021 Noobie Play Box Contents:
Altogether the contents of the box have a $51.91 value! That’s more than $10 more than the cost of the box (which is less than $40, in case you forgot).
Plus, Noobie Box often has coupon codes including in their boxes for these brands, in case you like them, so you can order other products from those brands for even less! They range from 10% off up to 35% off full-priced items!
My thoughts on the items:
I was a bit disappointed in the value versus cost here. The Noobie Nest box I reviewed before this box had over $90 in retail value.
And while bath toys are awesome, they are for older kids (as evidenced by how much my 3-year-old and 5-year-old daughters love them). I don’t see us using the stroller cards. The book is super cute, and we have other very similar flaps boards books in our collection already. The rattle is really small and just okay. The storage bin is not something we’ll likely use.
But, they are all high-quality items nonetheless. I’m just picky, and a mom of seven kids.
On the Noobie Box website, it’s also linking some Sassy Ring-o-Links to come in this box, which would add a little extra value.
The box I received in July 2018 contained:
- Sassy Ring-O-Links ($4.99)
- Green Sprouts Stacking Cups Made from Plants ($9.99)
- The Baby Owner’s Manual ($11.39)
- TOMY Lamaze wrist rattles ($15.99)
- Flower Rattle Toy ($7.99)
- Highlights Hello Magazine ($5.99)
Altogether the value of the products received was about $56.34. At the time the Noobie Play box was only $29.99! So it was an even better deal than what they are sending and charging now!
Course, I am using current prices for those items (and guessing on some of them, like the flower rattle), but most prices have gone up over the last 2.5 years.
Of those items I received, I have used the ring-o-links, the stacking cups, the wrist rattles, and the rattle toy. The Baby Owner’s manual and the Highlights magazine were helpful and cute, but I didn’t really look through them.
But, I will say, they hit the nail on the head with the items all being about playing with your baby and your baby having toys and rattles that are developmentally appropriate for a 6+ month old baby.
I think the Noobie Play box is overall a good deal (especially as you can know exactly what products you are receiving ahead of time).
