Looking for a great baby box subscription? Then you might love this new one called 123 Baby Box! Here is my honest 123 Baby Box review complete with promo code!
I am always a bit leery of subscription boxes. Maybe that’s why I’ve gone out of my way to try out and review so many different ones over the years with my kids and for myself.
Don’t believe me? Below are just a FEW of the subscription box reviews I’ve done over the years:
- Toddler Subscription Boxes
- Preschool Subscription Boxes
- Maternity Clothes Subscription Boxes
- Pregnancy Subscription Boxes
- Baking Boxes and Cooking Kits for Kids
- Kids Book Subscription Boxes
- Monthly STEM Boxes for Kids
- Arts and Crafts Subscription Boxes for Kids
- Educational Subscription Boxes for Kids
I’m super picky about how I spend my money, almost frugal to a fault, and I don’t like wasting my money on stuff that I won’t use, that has low resale value, of poor quality, and that ultimately will just clutter my house and remind me of the money I wasted on the latest subscription box fad.
I try hard to be honest in my subscription box reviews. And many people are far less frugally minded, and have far fewer kids than me, and perhaps less destructive kids than me, so my issues may not be issues others have. That’s fine. We all have different needs and perspectives on things.
I assume many other people are leery like me and want to see some honest reviews though!
So, let’s get to this new baby box I was sent!
I have reviewed many different pregnancy and baby-related boxes over the years. Some I’ve found pretty awesome and have kept and used and loved the items I received, especially as I generally don’t splurge on myself while pregnant and don’t buy a lot of fun stuff for babies, more just the practical stuff.
I have reviewed the following baby and pregnancy boxes:
- Free Noobie Box for Pregnant Moms
- Oh Baby Boxes Review
- EcoCentric Mom Box Review
- Bump Boxes Review
- Baby by Kidbox Review (baby clothes)
- Panda Crate Review
- Free Baby Box Co Box
- Noobie Nest Box Review
- Noobie Play Box Review
Add in the baby registry freebie boxes, and I’ve reviewed quite a few products!
123 Baby Box contacted me about reviewing their baby box and giving my honest feedback in exchange for a box, to which I agreed.

123 Baby Box Review
You can watch my 123 Baby Box unboxing video and review on Youtube.
I was sent a baby box for my 4-month-old twin babies in January 2021. Inside I received the following items:
- Jungle Baby Cloth Book – $9.99
- Portable Owl White Noise Machine – $15.99
- Milestone Blanket – $19.99
- Snot Sucker – $49.99 (Featured Product)
- Sphynx Portable Razor – $14.99 (for mom)
- Too Cozy Fuzzy Socks – $3.99 (for mom)
Total retail value: $114.94
I looked up these items on Amazon or their retail site, and even with current sale prices, everything in this box would still cost $98.30 to buy right now! You really are getting $75+ value in every box!
I was personally very happy with the items in my box!
My babies absolutely love the crinkle book, even if the back of it has some terrible grammar/English as it says “Quietly to and meet the jungly friends.” In case you were wondering, jungly isn’t a word.
The milestone blanket is pretty small, and my now 5-month old babies barely fit on it, so I don’t know how they’d fit on it at 12 months old. But, the blanket is super cute and super soft and I love just putting it down for the babies’ tummy time, or to put over them in their car seats.
The white noise machine is super nice with it being portable! We haven’t actually used it yet, but we didn’t previously have a white noise machine, and this is the perfect size to take while traveling!
I am not sure how I feel about the snot sucker. We did not have a snot sucker so it’s kinda cool we have one now for when the teething phase begins or a baby gets a cold.
But, given that we’ve survived so many kids without ever having a proper snot sucker, and I’m not sure it’s a huge need, especially as the featured item. That said, I’m not really complaining.
The portable razor is kinda neat and it’s carry-on friendly. We *may* have some flights in our future so this could be great to have as an option!
The fuzzy socks were too small for my size 11 feet, and I’m not really a fuzzy sock girl. I gave them to one of my 10 year old daughters and she loves them, though they shed and only one of the socks has the little grippy dots on the bottom, which she thinks is a little weird.
So, not high-quality socks, but they are a bonus item in my opinion, so not a big deal.
With the high value of these items, high usability of the items, I give this box a pretty high rating and review, especially compared to other boxes I’ve received, all of which seem to think I want and need a lot of baby lotions or solely organic products….
I make no guarantees as to what you’ll get in your 123 Baby Box but this current box is pretty great! I suggest giving it a shot, especially with my promo code FAGAN15 for 15% off your order!
Keep in mind, it makes an awesome gift too!
I’d love to know your thoughts on 123 Baby Box and other baby boxes!
