Disclaimer: I received the Dream Journal and hey baby sticky notes for free in return for my honest review!

                                                           MY REVIEW

I was so excited when Knock Knock said i can review some of their products. I had such a hard time choosing the items that i wanted because they had so many cute and funny items to choose from. I finally chose the Dream Journal and the hey baby sticky notes. I was so excited that i was able to review the Dream Journal because This may sound weird but a lot of my dreams come true, So i like to write my dreams down to keep in track of them. This journal is awesome it has two pages you fill out about each dream. It has a title and date section that way you know when you had that dream.  Then they have a pretty big section where you can write every detail about what happen in your dream. They also have a check list where you can check what category your dream falls in such as nightmare, fantasy,symbolic,mundane and just plan bizarre. There also is a check list of what was your emotion about the dream such as fear,frustration, lost of self, arousal, humiliation, grief, love, anger, freedom,paralysis,confusion, panic,joy, surprise, vulnerability and other. Then there is a section where it asks you if you have ever dreamed this dream before which is cool so you can keep track of how often you have the same dreams. Then on the second page they have a sketch box where you can sketch out your dream which is fun you can show your creativity side. The last section you fill out is the reflect section where you write what your interpretation of the dream is.  Overall i love this dream journal the layout of it is amazing and i love  to go back and read all my dreams and laugh about them i love that i also has a bookmark so i can mark my favorite dream so i can find it fast. Now on to he Hey baby sticky notes i got these because my husband and i love to write notes to each other. So these are super cute and better then regular paper its great we can stick them anywhere!

Knock Knock was founded in 2002 by Jen Bilik with the mission of creating witty, design-driven gift products and books, along with anything else that might strike the Knock Knock fancy.
Our products aspire to bring humor, function, organization, and aesthetics to everyday life. We believe that people are intelligent enough to appreciate wit, wordplay, and conceptual thought. Whether we’re producing sticky notes or a volume of thoroughly researched nonfiction, we strive not to dumb down as we create. Our sensibility remains proudly distinct.
The Knock Knock team operates out of a sunny loft in Venice, California, a fantasy locale if ever there were one. We’re a dynamic group who do everything from creating our products and books to overseeing the all-important logistical dynamics of manufacturing, sales, and distribution.
For more on our beliefs and idiosyncrasies, peruse our Philosophy. To learn more about Knock Knock founder Jen Bilik, check out her bio.


We are Knock Knock, a product design company with aspirations to greatness. We concoct, manufacture, and distribute witty objects of cosmopolitan panache from our shamelessly sunny perch on the left-hand coast. Our domain is desire rather than necessity, though we seek to infuse our creations with utility and meaning.
We believe in the Golden Rule, friendly customer service, and shipping quality merchandise on time, though occasionally we are grumpy, and circumstances beyond our control result in tardiness. We suffer fools not gladly, but for the most part we actually like other human beings. Our customers comprise the impish, the dapper, the droll, the young-at-heart, those who prefer the humor of the truth to false feel-good affirmations.
On the highfalutin front, Knock Knock seeks to integrate art and commerce—creating original, authentic, noncynical products that support themselves in the marketplace so that we don’t have to deal with “clients.” Our inspirations are Charles and Ray Eames and Tibor Kalman, designers who refused compartmentalization and brought intelligence, aesthetics, and creativity to everything they touched.
Rather than a product category, material, or target market, Knock Knock’s unifying force is a sensibility. We channel that sensibility into designing and manufacturing original products, selling primarily to retailers. Also, we read a lot. Following are a few things we believe:
  • Ethics and decency are immeasurably important.
  • Products should be created with care, whether mass produced or handmade.
  • Things should be both beautiful and useful, but they can also be beautiful and frivolous.
  • Beautiful, useful things should sometimes be affordable.
  • Every once in a while it’s good to notice quality design.
  • Craft is important for the soul as well as the hands and eyes.
  • Art is not necessarily superior to craft.
  • Humor makes everything better.
  • Not everything should strive to be accessible to the lowest common denominator, or any common denominator, for that matter.
  • Smartness is fun.
  • Empty feel-good affirmations are an instant gratification of diminishing returns—slyly interpreted truths last longer.
  • Despite the rise of the screen, much that is interesting and innovative can be done with printed matter, though paper should be recycled whenever possible.
  • Idiosyncrasy, eccentricity, humor, controversy, and opinion are infinitely more interesting than corporate homogenization, committee-decision-making dilution, and widest-possible-audience scheming.
  • Renaissance prowess is more interesting than individual skills specialized to the point of contextlessness.
  • Passion, curiosity, and enthusiasm can make anything interesting.
  • Good should be rewarded.
  • Problems should be discussed and resolved.
  • Self-awareness is underrated.
  • Mistakes should be admitted and learned from.
  • Common sense is uncommon.
  • Ego is annoying.
  • Turn signals should be used.
  • Even though it’s possible to use fewer words than more, why?

Jen Bilik is the founder, owner, and overall head honcho of Knock Knock.
Jen grew up handy in Berkeley, California, quilting with her mother and learning carpentry with her father. After high school, she attended the University of Michigan, where she majored in English literature and film studies, plying her secret arts-and-crafts hobbies on the side. After college, Jen decamped to New York City and labored variously as a film development intern, apprentice film editor, architectural draftsperson, tutor, babysitter, and newspaper proofreader before accepting an actual salaried job in publishing. Happenstance landed Jen in coffee-table books, exciting mini-productions unto themselves with graphic designers, illustration sources, four-color printing, authors, and copyediting.
While serving as the point person for text on late-breaking books, she inadvertently enjoyed a series of deskside internships in graphic design. After a freelance stint that included editing many books as well as co-authoring two (Todd Oldham: Without Boundaries and Women of Taste: A Collaboration Celebrating Quilt Artists and Chefs), Jen moved to Los Angeles to ponder how she might make her elusive mark. A few years and a million head scratches later, Knock Knock was born out of Jen’s desire to play with paper and wit.
For Jen, the Who’s There family represents a stimulating culmination of many interests—art, craft, business, strategy, printing, writing, coordinating, managing—and she keeps them all well-honed by serving as the company’s lead writer, head honcho, and creative director (aside from all the other boss stuff).
With Knock Knock, Jen and the team seek to create products distinctive in concept, content, and design, immune to the disease of committee homogenization.
