Barkbox - January 2018 | Frankly Kiersten Reviews


What is BarkBox?: BarkBox is a monthly subscription box for your favorite pupper. Each box includes five items, two toys, two bags of treats, and a chew. You tell them the size of your pupper and how you want to pay, and then you decide if you want to spend an extra $9/box for an extra toy! It's divided into three sizes, so Trumpet fits nicely in the middle category as 'Just Right.'

How Much is BarkBox?: If you want no commitments, cancel anytime, the box is $29/month. A three-month commitment brings it down to $25/month. Six months is $23/month (billed up-front as $138) and a one-year commitment is $20/month but you get to pay monthly! You get free shipping anywhere in the US and Canada, but there is sales tax applied to certain states.


Such a judgemental face.



I love this theme!! The paper is adorable.


This theme is everything!


Somehow I lost all of the individual pictures of each item so I'm listing it all out here.

Squirrel Lancelot ($10.00) - Trumpet loved this toy and he actually got it Pre-Murphy and Post-Murphy, Squirrel Lancelot died. There was a squeaker in his shield and Murphy was all about that very specific squeaker. This toy did donate a ton of stuffing to my house that had to be cleaned up forever.

Sherrwyn the Dragon ($10.00) - Another toy that lived until Murphy came into the house. Sherwyn's flame couldn't stand up to my destructive little Pittie. 

Green Bark Gummies (Skin and Coat Treats) ($8.00) - These were opened Pre-Murphy but I definitely want to try them again as my Pittie has skin issues and this would be perfect for him. I haven't purchased from BarkShop but I definitely need to make an order!

Banquet Feast ($5.00) - Turkey and honey together, strange combo. I think of ham being the meat that would be paired with sweets and not turkey, but Trumpet didn't mind one bit! He loved this.

Dozers Dental Chew ($3.00) - This was Pre-Murphy so I gave it away as Trumpet wasn't a fan of harder chews until he realized Murphy would eat his if he left it alone.


This box was valued at $36.00, well over the cost of the box, but the curation was so definitely worth it. I loved this box and everything in it was perfect.

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
