After last month’s craziness, I had been really looking forward to receiving the February 2014 Stork Stack. I was super curious to see what they would do this month since I am sure they are hoping to put the January box (you can read about that here) behind them.
Stork Stack typically ships the first week of the month and seemed to be a few days late this month. Once I got the tracking notification on it though it was here in no time. I think I got the tracking on the 8th and it arrived today (the 10th).
The first look was off to a good start! I knew right away that WB would love that stuffed whatever it was.
Stork Stack’s February 2014 theme was “Animal Action” and featured animal theme toys from some of Stork Stack’s favorite brands, including North America Bear Co. and Rich Frog along with a few new brands to discover.
I have mentioned it before, but Stork Stack now sends their information cards electronically. They as a link in the tracking e-mails, so if you want to peek you can and if not, you can wait and be surprised. It should come as no shock that I always peek ;). Here is what my February box (for WB who is 21 months) included:
~Buggy Love PureLove Spray ($7.99): I have never heard of this brand before, but I guess they have an entire line of organic cleaning products. I tested this out on a few of WB’s toys and while I wasn’t overly thrilled by the smell (it’s not bad but it’s not amazing either) I did like the results. It wasn’t hard to wipe off and didn’t leave any residue or anything. I’ll be checking out more from their line.
~Rich Frog Products Bath Mitt ($4.50): I could have sworn that I had gotten this from Stork Stack in the past, but it turns out that I received the soap sack back in August 2013, but never the mitt. We have a few mitts, but we don’t have the dog and dogs are WB’s favorite, so that’s good. We actually just end up using these more as puppets than actual bath mitts in the tub.
~Parragon Books “Good Morning Bluebird” ($6.99): This book is adorable!! It’s easily one of my favorite books we’ve gotten in a subscription box. WB and L both loves and I am guessing we’ll be reading this again tomorrow night!
~North American Bear Flatocow Animal ($17): WB snatched this right up and ran off with it. He’s really into stuffed animals right now so it was a good fit. We have gotten similar (not the exact same, but similar) items from NA Bear Co. in the past though, so while WB likes this, I would have preferred something different.
~Credible Cravings Snack Bar (Mom Treat) ($3): I am saving this for breakfast in the morning, but it’s made specifically to support the needs of pregnant and breastfeeding moms and their developing children. Obviously others (like me) can have it too, but I wanted to point that out!
All totaled I came up with a value of $39.48 for the February 2014 Stork Stack, which is in excess of the $27.99 monthly cost of the box (less if you purchase a longer term subscription). I enjoyed this box, but I did think it was a safe box this month because it had a few brands that have been included (and well received) in the past.
