Yesterday afternoon I stepped outside to toss a jar into the recycling bin and what did I find waiting for me? My much-anticipated May Stork Stack! Yay!
In early April, I (er, my babies) won a free month’s subscription for coming in 4th in Stork Stack’s “Cutest Baby” contest on Facebook. Now, I’d like to think that we won based solely on the irresistible cuteness of my kiddos, but that totally wasn’t the case. I could have submitted a photo of my left pinkie toe & still came in 4th. The truth is, it was all just a matter of which moms could bug the crap out of their Facebook friends the most. The moms that mercilessly begged for votes on a daily basis, to the ire of their followers, were the ones who came out on top. Trust me, I (and my Facebook friends) know this firsthand. I am freakin’ RELENTLESS.
So with that said, here’s my review!
Little Learners Baby’s First Stroller Books* The first item I pulled out of the box was this cute set of stroller books. They have a built-in strip of Velcro that you can loop around your stroller (or anywhere else you’d like to hang a book… NO not THERE, don’t be gross!). The books are pretty sturdy and the illustrations are super cute. Amazon price: $8.81
See? Super cute!
Two-Dees Cat by North American Bear Co. Next up was this orange cat from North American Bear Co. I had read other reviews that featured a pink bunny, so I was kind of hoping for that one. I’m not the biggest fan of cats, but eh, it’s soft and I’m sure the girls will like it. I mean, this box IS for them and all… Oh, and I looked it up on the company’s website and it sells for $16.00. Kinda pricey, so it MUST be good, right? 😉 Amazon Price: $13.50
Wee Can Too Veggie Baby Finger Paint* This looks like a fun product… Edible finger paint! Fruit & veggie powders that turn into “paint” when you add water. Of course I like that it says “vegan” right on the label. Major points for that one. I think I’m going to save this for the summer. It’ll be interesting to see what the girls think of it. Amazon Price: $29.99 (for 5)
Rubbabu Foam Ball Yep, it’s a ball. An orange, rubber (foam?) ball. With a velvet-y coating. Sorry, I can’t muster up much enthusiasm for a ball. Perhaps the girls can?
UPDATE: They like it! Apparently it has a pleasing flavor, cos the thing tends to get chewed on quite a bit. Gross. Good thing the materials are baby-friendly. Amazon Price: $6.95
Susan Brown’s Baby Naturals Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer* A little something for the mama. It smells nice and promises to moisturize. Also states that it’s not tested on animals and doesn’t contain any animal ingredients. Works for me. Amazon Price: $5.99
Deep Steep Moisture Stick I’ve never heard of a “moisture stick”, but I’ll give it a go. I have some dry spots that could use a little moisture. (I’m talking about my feet, get your minds outta the gutter already! Geez.) Amazon Price: $5.27
Stephen Joseph Tiger Bank & “Wee Willie Winkie” from Child’s Play The final items were a little ceramic tiger bank and a board book. I had seen other reviews that showed a pink owl instead of the tiger, and was really hoping to get that one to match the nursery. We already have a good collection of banks, so I’m not sure what to do with this little guy. The board book is a nice size, though the “story” is pretty lame. With my luck, this will end up being a favorite that I’ll have to read night after night. Damn you, Winkie! Amazon Prices: Book $4.49, Bank $6.00
So that’s what I got in my May Stork Stack. I do need to note that the items marked with an asterisk were NOT included in the regular May boxes (as far as I know). The folks at Stork Stack told me they would send me some extra products with my May stack because I have twins (score!). The 5 items without the asterisks are the ones that were exclusive to this month’s box.
