 Stork Stack Review & Coupon Code - January 2014 Items

The Subscription Box: Stork Stack

The Cost: $27.99 a month

The Products: Full sized products customized to your child’s age (3rd trimester to 3rd year)

Stork Stack Review & Coupon Code - January 2014 Blocks

A Harvest Company Cork Block Stacker – Value $7?

This month Stork Stack worked with a brand new company – A Harvest Company – to supply most of their items. All the toys are made with natural and eco-friendly materials.

UPDATE: It looks like these blocks are not safe for children – they can easily break apart. I’m waiting to see how Stork Stack handles this.

UPDATE 2: From Stork Stack’s Facebook page:

A note from our CEO, Chris:

Members of the Stork Stack Community –

I want you to know that I take your concerns about the Harvest Cork Stacker very seriously. We have been looking into this issue since it was first called to our attention. I have personally read every email, I have read every Facebook post, and I have listened to every message.

We are currently engaged in conversation with the product manufacturer, A Harvest Company, about these concerns. I promise we will update you as soon as we have complete information. While we understand it may be hard to ask for patience right now, I need to make sure that we get correct answers and give you accurate information rather than simply provide fast (and potentially incorrect) information. I wanted to send this note out so that you can be sure this matter is receiving my undivided attention.

In the meantime, there is nothing – and I repeat, NOTHING – that is more important than the safety of our little members. If at any time you feel a product is unsafe for your child, we recommend refraining from use.

We will get to the bottom of this and make this situation right for you. I will get back to all of you with a resolution promptly.

Thank you for your patience as we sort through this matter.


Stork Stack Review & Coupon Code - January 2014 Toys

A Harvest Company Wheaties Car – Value $7?

A Harvest Company Keys – Value $7?

I’m guessing on these values of these items since I can’t find them for sale anywhere online.

 Stork Stack Review & Coupon Code - January 2014 Book

Kind Bar in Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt – Value $1.50

Eating Well Book – Value $7

My husband loved this Kind Bar – now I need to buy more!

Verdict: Since I had to guess on the values of most of the items in the box this month, it’s difficult to do a value breakdown, but I do feel like I got my money’s worth. Every item will make a great gift, and we discovered a new healthy treat!

What did you get in your January Stork Stack box?

  1. Love your site, love that I can peek at subscriptions vicariously through you!
    I just cancelled my Stork Stack subscription as well. Got a little wooden rattle, Kind bar, book, stacking blocks, and some sort of chew toy for my 7 month old. The blocks have a tag that says “5 pieces included”, that must include the string and the tag…

    • Thanks for loving the site! 🙂

      It’s a shame about the Stork Stack box this month. I just updated the post with a letter from the Stork Stack CEO, but I’m still waiting to see how they handle this situation. It seems like they should have already sent out an email to subscribers alerting them to not use the cork blocks.

  2. I wrote to them complaining about the cork blocks but also I received a rattle that had a huge splinter on it. Harvest is a terrible company and in no way designed correctly for children. Makes me want to cancel too!

  3. I ended up canceling my account. I have subscribed since May of 2013, but the last few months have gone down hill. What age was your box for? I received the teething keys for a 22 month old. Stork Stack needs to work on sending age appropriate toys.

  4. I’m so bummed about this box. I’m still waiting on mine but positive it’s going to be the same as yours. I didn’t sign up to be a test group for a new company (which is exactly what this box is) the cork blocks are dangerous and the other items my daughter is to old for. On the preview sheet there was a lot of other options but it looks like everyone is getting this one or one with a basic rattle (for the newborns) I want to know what happened to the chalk blocks and other fun items that I was crossing my fingers for.

  5. I was disappointed again with this months box. It honestly looked like a bunch of dog chew toys and had one book. Cancelled my subscription and I’ll be sticking to Citrus Lane because they never let me down.

  6. I don’t think I would give my baby a block of cork or a pressed woodchip toy to play with (that will almost certainly chip). You should check out the photos of the cork blocks on Stork Stack’s facebook page.

    I think they should be recalled.

    • Eek – thanks for letting me know. I’ll update the review.

      • I can’t even find the pics of the cork blocks. Did they remove them? I agree, I’d never have given my kids cork anything when they were little (though I went through quite a few “mommy juice bottles” that had corks in their tops, lol!)

        • The photo is under the first comment of the post made by M. Hunting (shortening so her whole name isn’t searchable). There are now a couple other reports of similar issues.

          HAHA mommy juice. That’s a good one.

    • That’s exactly what I was thinking. My oldest chewed up one of flip flops when he was a toddler, like a dog! Lol I could easily see pieces being chewed off of a cork block.

      I would be mad if I paid that much for this box. Three ugly cheap toys that are potentially unsafe, a board book and a kind bar? No thanks.
