July Stork Stack Subscription Box Review

Look what the stork brought this morning!!


I always get super excited when one of these subscription boxes gets dropped off on our doorstep. Stork Stack's theme for July is "Ready, Set, Summer!" and I think they did a pretty good job with the theme. Here's a peek at what the information card looks like:


Let's go through the items!


First up is a Baby UPF 50+ Reversible Sun Hat from Baby Banz. This hat is designed really well - Little M hates having hat straps tied around her - this one has an adjustable velcro closure that avoids straps altogether. Sweet! The only issue here is that this basically will match nothing in Little M's wardrobe....it's super masculine and frankly I will probably have to give it away to a lucky friend because it's just too boyish for our taste. Pretty unfortunate :(

The hat is valued at $19.00 per Stork Stack, but it looks like you can purchase it anywhere from $11-15 on amazon. I'm going to put a value of $12 on it based on that.


Next is a Melissa & Doug Slide & Seek Safari toy. We love this company! They make really cute toys for all different ages, and I bet Little M will absolutely love playing with this!

Stork Stack valued this at $5.99 (and actually amazon has it priced at $7.99, but melissaanddoug.com offers the SS quoted price. 

These next treats look super tasty! Bitsy's Brainfood is a new brand for us to try out and I'm excited to do so - these look like something Little M will love to munch on. Zucchini is one of her fave veggies, and she's really into the snack cookies (who isn't?!?). I can't wait for her to wake up from her nap to taste one!

Stork Stack has valued these at $2.50, and that seems to be the going price.


Then we have 5 samples of Supergoop! Everyday Face and Body Lotion. I actually really love sample sized moisturizers...I personally have really dry skin, and little packets like this are perfect for my wallet. I will probably use these on me and not Little M :) Of course I wish it were a full-sized bottle, but I'll take what I can get!

Stork Stack values 6oz of this at $19...but I think that was a mistake. 1.5oz on the Supergoop! site is $15. Since the sample is only 0.5oz, that makes these samples worth about $5.00.


And last, we have a Grow it! book from Child's Play International. In the past, I've felt like the board books from this publisher are a little flimsy - they just feel kind of cheap. This book has a much better feel to it, although it contains real (somewhat thick) pages....that could mean disaster from my little paper ripping monster, but we shall see!  I'll read it to Little M later today - we love new books!

Stork Stack values this at $5.99, but amazon sells it for $5.39.


All in all, this was a pretty great box. I wish that my biggest-value item was gender appropriate (and since their customer service is great - I'm going to reach out to see if they can do something about that! ***update about 12 hours later - heard from their team already! Super fast and super friendly, and I think they are sending a different item instead! Now that's great service and one of the reasons I love this company!!!***), but overall we have a few new brands to try and some things I think Little M will really like.

I paid $21.75 for this box, and the total value (using the amazon prices) was $30.88 - not too bad!

I highly recommend that you check out Stork Stack! Every month, they send you a box filled with the highest-quality products for your baby AND you. You're going to love it! Enjoy $10 off of a membership with this unique referral code: 438BBC41  (and I'll get $10 off too!)
