Monthly Subscription Boxes :: Stork Stack Review, Coupon & Giveaway {Ends 7/13}

Stork Stack is a monthly subscription service that delivers a specially curated "Stack" filled with 5 of their favorite baby, toddler and mom full size products each month. They send out age and gender appropriate Stacks that are relevant for mom's third trimester all the way up to your toddler's third birthday. With a focus on introducing you to hot brands and high quality, safe products you really can't go wrong with the savings you'll get with Stork Stack. Each Stack is filled with a product value minimum of $50, but as you'll see below that mine was a even more.


What's Inside?
Each Stork Stack will be filled with 5 age-appropriate products totaling $50+ in retail value, for just $28 a month. I received a third birthday July Stack for a boy. Here's what was included!
  • Leg/Arm Warmers by BabyLegs - A classic baby and toddler product that no family should go without trying! These are great for cloth diapering families, and the pair I received is also made with Organic Cotton. Score! Sadly, Buddy has chubby arms and legs and these squeeze him like crazy, but I knew that about these with Buddy over a year ago. I'm really looking forward to having another baby and using BabyLegs from day one though. Definitely love that these were included in this Stack!
  • Earth Mama Body Butter by Earth Mama Angel Baby - Intended for use by expecting mamas (but really works for anyone), this lotion-style moisturizer has a creamy vanilla, citrus scent with a convenient pump. This is a fantastic choice for the mama product in this Stack but works well for the whole family since it's made with organic herbs, organic essential oils and other completely safe, toxin-free ingredients. I'm loving the scent, and will definitely use this everyday. It's makes my hands super soft and absorbs well and fast.
  • Happy Mama Spray by Earth Mama Angel Baby - An aromatherapy spray by the same awesome company as the body butter in this Stack. I'm leery of the chemical-filled body sprays, scented candles and perfumes out there, but this is completely safe to breath and that's exactly what it's for! Made with organic essential oils, it's great for morning sickness, queasiness, baby blues, car sickness for kids and adults, and even to tone down a wild toddler moment. It reminds of a lemon candy I used to love as a kid, with a touch of citronella lemon and a very light floral undertone. It's refreshing and quite lovely! Although I haven't used it for any of the specified uses purposefully, I keep opening the bottle to take a whiff. It's so relaxing!
  • Reversible Bucket Sun Hat by BabyBanz - What a fantastic find! I've been trying to find a bucket hat locally but none have been quite what I want for our vacation to the bay area and beach this week. The material is UV protective with a UPF 50+. The wide brim will over Buddy plenty of protection on his face and neck without the use of sunscreen (I'm going to hold off on sunscreen as long as I can this week!). It's made from polyester so it won't breath too well, but the material is on the thin side so I'm not too worried. I wish there was an option for a strap to velcro under the chin (in case it's breezy at the beach), but luckily it's adjustable so you can get a snug fit! There is velcro where the top of the hat meets that brim that can be pulled in or let out. The hat we received is the Kidz size which should fit age 2-5 years, but Buddy is already at the end of the sizing! He's got a huge head though so that definitely makes sense. The tropical print is adorable, or I can reverse the hat to a plain navy blue with the turquoise trim. So cute!
  • MUNCH Snack Container by Boon - Boon is a brand I'm familiar with! For the most part they offer quirky designs for baby and toddler products, and this cool snack container is no exception. The lid twists on so it's easy to clean and add snacks. The little orange opening swivels around so little ones can open it by themselves. Buddy like this container (he keeps heading over to the sink to fill it with water!?), but his hand is a little large to really get inside. The rim on the inside is also a bit rigid, making it a bit uncomfortable to pull out. I think a toddler with smaller hands would okay though! Buddy is 3 1/2 already and is large for his age anyway. Although it's plastic (I prefer safer materials), it is BPA, PVC and phthalate free. It's appropriate for babies as young as 9 months, and offers a solid container that won't get crushed in the diaper bag or purse.

    While none of these brands were new to me (remember, I review and know of lots of brands), Buddy couldn't keep his hands out of this box when I opened it and that was really fun to see him get so excited about products that were new to him. He quickly pulled apart the packaging for the Boon snack container and took the hat to try it on! I also love that Stork Stacks are for mom also. I love to get something in the mail too!

    The Earth Mama Angel Baby products are highly effective, extremely natural products that I adore. Not only are both these products great for new babies and mom, but also for my toddler son. I love that Stork Stack has put an emphasis on more natural products (for this Stack at least), and hope they continue to seek out the safest products to ensure they are competitive and won't compromise on safety. Based on this Stack, I'm sure they will. I would like to see them extend the age of their Stacks past age three since that's where we're at now, but I realize that's like opening a whole can of worms with such a vast array of different age appropriate products that would entail!

    Stork Stack gives back to needy families with the purchase of a subscription. Gotta love a company that knows how to share and give back! Stork Stack has partnered with some awesome philanthropic organizations such as Operation Showers of Appreciation that gives baby showers to military families during separation due to deployment and also Baby Buggy who has donated over 5.5 million products to needy families since 2001. Here's how YOU can get in on the giving...SUBSCRIBE! With your subscription, Stacks will be donated to those in need.

    For every 3 month membership, we donate 1 Stack.  
    For every 6 month membership, we donate 2 Stacks.  
    For every 12 month membership, we donate 3 Stacks.

    Stork Stack puts together really relevant products for you! The retail of my box was $64, and a regular subscriber would have only paid $28. I call that a huge deal! Stork Stacks would be a wonderful gift, and great for baby showers and birthdays. With such a huge savings, and a wonderful selection of high quality, usable products, Stork Stack is a big win for me. I'm impressed, big time.

    Subscription Options: $28/month, always free shipping, ships around the 1st of each month. Choose month-to-month and you will be billed monthly, cancel anytime. Or choose a 3-, 6-, or 12-month membership and Stork Stack will donate Stacks to families in need!
