You’ve surely seen those videos on social media where people “unbox” and review the latest thing they got in the mail. The video usually starts with a, "Hey guys!" and they open up the package and slowly describe all the benefits and features and maybe even the downsides of their purchase. Whether it be electronics, makeup or toys, these videos are everywhere. It was only a matter of time before parents shared their thoughts about their special deliveries. Don’t worry -- no babies were placed in any actual boxes, but they are extremely cute.
In this adorable TikTok clip, a dad gives his honest review of his new baby. In sum, this baby has good-quality hair, kissable cheeks and he’s a pretty good baby. It only cost one “grown-up transaction" (a bargain!).
Other dads took this as inspiration and ran with it to provide their reviews. For the most part, these reviewers seem extremely happy with their baby bundles (except for that little glitch where they cry at night).
This dad got express shipping at 34 weeks for his tiny preemie. He suggests getting optional accessories for your baby, like a pacifier.
Not all shipping is the same, apparently. This dad’s baby took the full nine months (on time, but it felt like forever) to get here -- worth the wait. It came with the premium hair package, but no instruction manual, which stinks because waste management is a bit of an issue.
This proud auntie thinks her baby package is a 10 out of 10, though she could use a bit more hair.
The boy version is recommended by this mom, but she suggests you steer clear of the breastfed model and go for the formula option (it's nice to have options, though!). Her baby was super late -- 41 weeks shipping time!
Sometimes, you get more than you bargained for. This grass-eating chunky monkey gets a 10 out of 10, but his rolls gets a 20 out of 20.
User satisfaction was high overall, though an extended warranty was not mentioned. Too bad, since customer support is non-existent. Some parents even seemed ready to place a second order.
These parents better be ready, though -- give these little packages a few years and they'll be posting their honest parent reviews!
