I didn’t find out until later that you can skip a box if you don’t wish to receive that month’s. They always send a preview email but I didn’t open them. I have too much email. Anyways I haven’t used any of the ingredients or recipes yet and I probably would’ve chosen to skip this month as the only ingredients which appeal to me are the Quinoa and Wild Mayhaw Jelly. What do you think of The Fare Trade? Have you made any of the recipes from this month?

Melissa & Doug Shape Sorting Clock – I thought this was a great toy. My daughter tends to take the shapes out more than put them in but it’s a nice toy that we didn’t have already.

Boon Octopus Puzzle – This is a puzzle that kids can do in the bath since when wet it will stick to the wall. I think it’s a great toy but for some reason my daughter doesn’t seem to like puzzles all that much.

Bumpkins SuperBib – I was super happy to see this in the box. These bibs are great.

Little Red Hen Book – This is a nice story and I love that it includes a narrated CD version so she can listen to it in the car or while traveling.

Somersaults Cinnamon Crunch Snacks – My daughter and I shared these. They were just ok.

Verdict – This was a great box. I liked every item in it.
