Subscription Boxes! January Stork Stack

I’m a pretty loyal Citrus Lane subscriber, but I have been seeing Stork Stack making the rounds.  They are a little more expensive, but I’ve been impressed with the boxes I’ve seen.  So when they came out with a promo code for a discounted first month, I was all over it.  I just received my January Box and wanted to share its contents with you.

WHAT IS IT?
Stork Stack is a monthly subscription box that delivers 5 items for baby and mom.  Boxes are $28 a month.  Stork Stack donates boxes to needy families if you sign up for a 3, 6, or 12 month subscription.

January’s theme was “Happy, Healthy New Year”.  The items included were:

  • Sara Haley’s Sweat UNLIMITED DVD – $24.99
  • Contigo AUTOSEAL Kids Trekker Cup – $6.99
  • Instagrad – $10.00 to 529 Savings Plan

WHAT DID I THINK?

Ok, so the good part first.  I liked the quality of the products.  I like that the sanitizer was full size.  And I liked the fitness DVD.  It has 5 different workouts that range from 5-45 minutes in length.  I think that’s great for busy moms!  The book has nice heavy glossy pages.  It is nice for toddlers who can be hard on book pages.

Now for the not so good part.  If I am being honest, I was a little disappointed.  It wasn’t as exciting and fun as their past boxes have been.  I am a long time subscription box subscriber, so I know I am not going to be thrilled with every box or every item.  But one of my problems was that there wasn’t much there that would be fun for my daughter.  Just the book.  And as much as I liked the DVD, I wish it wasn’t the high valued item in my box.  Or if they were going to include a fitness DVD, I wish it was geared towards moms AND babies.  Secondly, I was very disappointed in the Contigo cup.  These cups require you to push a button to drink from it.  I personally find it annoying to have to hold down the button to drink, but the button on this kid’s cup is very hard to press down.  There is no way my 2.5 year old can do it.  I don’t put that all on Stork Stack, but it was the biggest disappointment in the box.

Since I already subscribe to Citrus Lane, I was already on the fence about continuing.  This kind of put the nail in the coffin, unfortunately.  I do think I would be happy with them in the long run, but it just isn’t in the cards for me at this time.

Disclaimer: All opinions and thoughts are my own.  I paid for this subscription box myself and was not compensated in any way.
