Stork Stack January Review and $10.00 Discount

Stork Stack had shipping delays this month, so I didn’t get my box till the middle of the month.  Normally, Stork Stack ships the first of the month.  This month, Stork Stack partnered with a new company A Harvest Company.  Harvest products are made from natural & recycled materials like rice hulls, wheat straw, wood, potatoes, corn, wheat, soy, bee’s wax, bamboo, cotton & cardboard.  This box was for a 22 month old boy.

To connect to individual websites for each product, just click the picture.

A Harvest Company Wheaties

A Harvest Company Wheaties

From A Harvest Company “The unique design allows for shape recognition and a natural grasping area is great for the little one learning to crawl and walk. The bodies are partially painted with NO VOC organic paint and coated with several coats of a NO VOC clear finish for a long durable life.”

I like this car.  It is made for 0+ but T will play with it.  It is a simple design and is a nice classic toy.  T rolled this around the living room a bit, and seemed to enjoy it.

A Harvest Company Keys

From A Harvest Company “Each of the keys are made from reclaimed wood, chips captured from the logging industry pressed into boards, organically colored throughout and coated with a NO VOC finish for a long durable life. The “C” ring is made from a reclaimed potato bio-polymer that adds another teething surface that provides harder resistance for cutting teeth. The exclusive “C” ring also allow the tater tie to be attached to diaper bags, strollers and the like. The “C” ring can be slipped comfortably over baby‘s wrist, making a loyal pal who won’t end up on the floor.”

I am really disappointed in this product.  The product itself is fine, but I feel it is much too young for a 22 month old.  T doesn’t use rattles or teethers anymore.  I showed this to T, but he had no interest in it.  This is rated for 6 months plus.

From A Harvest Company ” Naturally antibacterial these blocks are made of all natural cork sustainably harvested exclusively for Harvest, these blocks do not contain any chemicals or coatings. Both the square and triangle sets are adorned with a simple hand stamped natural decoration and are just waiting for a child to love them!”

I like these blocks, although we have gotten a couple of stackers from Stork Stack in the last few months.  These are basic toys that can be used for lots of things.  T liked playing with these and likes to put them in boxes and pots.  They are made of cork, and are kinda soft.  I am concerned about safety, if he takes a bite.  These seem like they could be a choking hazard.  They are rated for 6 month plus.

Child's Play Party

I like Child’s Play books because they are nice a sturdy.  This has bendable pages, but they seem resistant to tearing.

Kind Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt

This is a mom gift.  I like Kind bars.  They have a salt crunchy flavor, without being terrible for your diet.

Stork Stack January Box

 Final Thought:  Overall, I was disappointed this month.  All of the toys were for 0+ or 6 months +.  I felt the box was too young for T.  T liked the blocks the best, but I am concerned about safety.  They are made of cork, and one bite could be a chocking hazard.  I question what kind of safety tests these toys, specifically the blocks go through.  T had no interest in the keys, and I feel they are way to young.  The wheaties car is cool and a nice toy.  What do you think of this month’s box?  I am not sure if I will continue with Stork Stack.  What are your thoughts?

    i agree too young for an almost 2 year old!

    I too am worried about the blocks being a choke hazard, I e-mailed and posted on Stork Stack’s FB wall and let them know my concerns about the blocks. My son will not be getting those to play with.

    I agree that the box was way too young, my son is 15 months and other than the car and book I wasn’t impressed this month.

    Got the Jan box today (Jan) bc of the delays. Extremely disappointed. For a 19 month old girl i got a car that is for 3 years plus (but I’m not sure why) and a cork stacking set that said it had 5 pieces but only came with 3 and just found out the item has been recalled. Instead of a replacement item we will get a refund of some amount. The other items were ok, but this is the second month with our 6 month Stork Stack subscription and so far we are very disappointed compared with the Citrus Lane membership we let lapse. Night and day in terms of the age-appropriateness. Last month we got a lovey. Seriously? It said 0+ and they sent it to an 18 month old. I emailed SS and got a generic response that the age groups are wide. Really disappointed.

    I agree, this Harvest Company issue is horrible. I ended up canceling my Stork Stack this month. I think they need to do a full recall, after seeing other people have issues with all the toys.
