I told you another review was coming soon! I got my July Stork Stack box today. Well, my husband brought it home to me. I have all of my subscription boxes delivered to his work address in the US 😉 We have been getting Stork Stack for a few months now and I feel it has been pretty consistent on things I like. I know there are some months you look at it and can’t believe they charge as much as they do but others you more than get moneys worth. This month was a so so month.
Sometimes the item prices are deceiving in these lists because you will often get samples or smaller versions on the retail product. Normally, this is just fine with me because I like trying out new items that I might not have known about. But this month I was a little disappointed.
So on to the box opening! This stack was for a 5 month old boy.
This month’s box had 5 items.
The first item was a Baby Banz reversible bucket hat. It lists the retail value as $19.00. I found it for $10.99 on Amazon. Its cute and looks like it will fit, the baby was super grump tonight though so I didn’t want to make it worse.
The second was a Melissa & Doug Caterpillar Grasping Toy. It lists the retail value as $7.99 Amazon has it for $6.22. My 5 month old little boy loved it right away!
The third item was a book. The Big Hungry Bear from Child’s Play International. Retail price $7.99 Amazon price $5.59. I always love books in our boxes. My 3 yr old usually likes to read them when I read them to the baby.
The fourth item was definitely a disappointment to me. It was 5 sample packs of Supergoop sunscreen. Normally I love getting sunscreen samples to try because these boxes do the natural ones I like but this one uses the 4 ingredients I avoid: avobenzone,homosalate,octisalate and octocrylene. The amount in each sample pack won’t be enough for even one of my children. I will probably let the older kids, myself or my husband use them up but will not put them on the 3 younger boys. Big disappointment there.
The fifth item in our box was an Earth Mama Angel Baby Calming Lavender Shampoo & Body wash. Retail $4.95. Amazon didn’t offer this size bottle so we will just stick with the retail price.
Total Retail price: $39.93
Total Amazon pricing:$27.75
I didn’t include the Supergoop in either of these prices because they are samples.
Overall it was a decent box. I will use it all(except maybe the Supergoop) but the items I feel I paid for were good. I did also have a credit this month so I got $10 off the box. Stork Stack charges $27.99 a month for the monthly plan. You can save by doing 3, 6, 12 month plans. Sign up here and use this referral code to receive $10 in Stork Bucks, 023C9FB7
