Whats more fun than a box -Stork Stack January

    Stork Stack is one of the subscription boxes that I reviewed under a discount voucher and decided to continue my subscription. I opted to go with the oldest kid box this time to see what kind of things were out there for the Tweedles. This is my second box received under that age group and I'm going to admit that it is again "so-so". It might just be me but the younger boxes look more fun.
    January's theme was "Happy, Healthy New Year" 

The anticipation is super exciting!

I see goodies!

My January Box spread - not too bad.
The cards include a $10 sign up offer from Instagrad to link to your existing 529 to allow friends and family to directly give money to the 529. Perfect! I will be setting this up. There was also a product card and a wonderful card to wish Trey a Happy Birthday this month. That was nice.
I wasn't expecting that. I'm digging that personal touch!

Cook it! Book by George Birkett.
 This Childs Play book has fun pictures with bright colors.
A fun book that I know Little Man will like.
He is my kitchen helper - always has been.
That little man loves being in the kitchen during meal prep.
The overview on Barnes & Noble is: Who’s home for dinner? What shall we cook? What do we need to buy? And don’t forget the washing-up! Helping with real tasks is a natural progression from pretend play, and is a crucial stage in a child’s development. Achieving a shared goal encourages a sense of responsibility, and develops many skills useful in later life. Simple conversational text and lively illustrations are carefully designed to encourage further dialogue between reader and child.

Sorry for the glare in the picture. This is 4.17 fl oz bottle of Susan Brown's Baby Naturals Moisturizing Hand Sanitizer. This is for the mums not the baby. It is antibacterial with vitamin E, paraben & phthalate free and jojoba. There is no animal testing and no animal ingredients. It doesn't feel sticky and hasn't dried my hands out. It has a nice and pleasant light scent. 
(I keep this in my pump bag.)

Sweat Unlimited! Apparently Sara Haley wants to make you sweat! According to her website she has many accreditation's like she is a certified Pre/Post Natal Exercise Specialist by the American Fitness Professionals & Associates. 
Almost makes me want to find the time to work out. I remember after having kiddo #1 I was motivated to do a mommy and me work out. Bought a dvd and all but that never happened. Unfortunately, I abandoned that desire after having kiddo #2. As a full time working mum of three I am lucky I get to take a shower in the morning before making a decaf coffee. I understand the theme of the box and what Stork Stack was going for, but insert a "wah-wah". Perhaps one day I can truly give a review on this item but until I find that time, energy and desire this will be filed with the dvds.

The big winner from this month's box was the Contigo Autoseal Kids Trekker Cup. It is BPA, Phthalate- and PVC-free. If there is one thing these kids like it is water bottles! Little Man tried this out and it is a perfect fit for his grip. Might have to look into ordering another one so the Tweedles each have one of their own. Major kudos on this item.

    Overall this box was okay. I did end up sending a message to switch from a three year old geared box back to an infant geared box. I really like how easy it is to communicate with the company and how friendly and fast they respond. Even though this box was "so-so" to me, it's not going to make me cancel.
I'm going to let it ride. What do you think of this box? Hit or miss?

   I purchased this Stork Stack box and was not compensated in any way.
My opinions are my own.

Next box to review: Conscious Box - January
