Note: As of April 2014, Stork Stack has merged with bluum.
Stork Stack had a coupon code code last month for $25 off a six month subscription (i.e. basically a free month), so I jumped all over that! If you aren’t familiar with Stork Stack (they aren’t as big as Citrus Lane), here is a description from their website: “Our lovingly curated Stacks include 5 of our favorite highest-quality products for your baby AND you.” Subscriptions are $28/month (if you sign up for a year’s subscription they will donate 3 stacks to a family in need) and they “deliver” around the 1st of every month.
This month’s theme was “Happy, Healthy New Year” and the card stated “To kick off 2013, we’ve selected helpful – and healthful – products to get your year started right”.
I still love all of their packaging! And this month I got a note talking about nine month-olds from one of the Stork Stack Team sharing her experiences. I am guessing those notes come every 3 months since I only got one at 6-months and 9-months?
And the information card:
Okay, now here are the details:
~Sara Haley’s Sweat UNLIMITED ($24.99): Okay I tried to find this online at Amazon or whatever and it appears it is not yet available for purchase. So rather than being annoyed that I got a workout DVD I may never use, I feel honored I get to try something before anyone else! The DVD has 5 different workouts of increasing length (from 5 to 45 minutes), so I really have no excuse not to use this.
~Boon FLUID the Sippy Cup ($7.49): OMG, I am so excited about this! WB could totally use some sippy cups and I have never tried any by Boon before. This is my favorite item in the box for sure! If this is spill-resistant like they say, I am going to be a happy girl.
~Instagrad $10 to 529 Savings Plan ($10): Shamefully, WB doesn’t have a 529 account. But this gives me the perfect kick in the butt to get on that!! I am starting it tonight!
~RaZbaby RaZberry Teether ($4.99): WB cannot grasp the concept of a pacifier (which is fine with me by the way because L was a paci addict), but I bet he’ll enjoy playing with this. And while he drools like crazy, there is not a tooth to be seen in that mouth of his ;). And this is hands-free, which will let him chew on it like crazy, while still playing like a madman!
~Baby Gym: Wiggle and Move ($5.99): I’ve never purchased anything from this line, but it certainly sounds super cool. It’s designed to stimulate the senses and encourage interaction between parent and baby. They also promote language development and encourage physical movement.
The contents of this box had a total of $53.46, which is more than the cost I paid for this box, which was $23.83 ($28 – $4.17 ($25 coupon divided by 6 months)). Over all, I am pleased with this box, but I wish something other than a DVD was included. I am not a huge fan of DVDs or CDs in any monthly subscription box. It fit perfect with the theme, but still, I would have been happier with a fun healthy snack or a box of Luna bars or something?
(*) W hasn’t gotten her box (it’ll be for a 17 month-old girl) yet, but I will update when she does so you can see the variations in the boxes based on age / gender.
