Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription for babies/kids aged newborn-5. It’s $29/month (cheaper with longer subs) and includes a nice assortment of toys, books, snacks, toiletries, etc. Sometimes they even include a gift for mom.
This month’s Citrus Lane box included products to pay tribute to Earth Day — as well as Spring in general. Yay, April!
Our box is geared towards a 21-month year old girl and here’s what was inside…
As always, everything was tucked inside their signature yellow tissue paper.
The info card is no longer folded, nor does it include the little paper cut-out letters on top. I was never sure what those letter things were for anyway… Looks like I can finally toss ’em!
The full box!
“Over in the Meadow” Book & CD by Barefoot Books – Certain age groups were given a choice of which book they’d like to receive this month. There were about 5 to pick from and I chose this one. It’s a big, colorful paperback book with a CD that includes the songs in the book. You can also watch animations on the CD with your computer/laptop. Neat! Honestly, I would have preferred a board book, but I don’t mind putting this away for when they’re really ready for it. (Amazon Price: $8.99)
Green Toys Pink Race Car – I love Green Toys! Did we need another toy vehicle? Nope. Did I open it and give it to the girls anyway? Heck yes. All Green Toys are made from 100% recycled plastic milk jugs, are free from BPA/PVC/phthalates, and don’t have any dangerous metal axles, wheels, etc. Plus, they’re super cute. 😉 (Amazon Price: $8.96)
Green Eats Snack Bowls – Green Eats are a line of mealtime products by Green Toys. This is a set of 4 little bowls that are the perfect size for feeding little ones or putting snacks in for toddlers. I’m not crazy about the “school bus yellow” color, but what can ya do. Like the Green Toys, these are also made from 100% recycled milk jugs and are BPA/PVC/phthalate-free. They’re also dishwasher safe. (Amazon Price: $12.52)
Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Dish Soap – This is a sample size of lemon verbena dish soap. It’s biodegradable and made with “at least 97%” naturally derived ingredients. I love anything citrus, so I’m definitely digging the scent. (Amazon Price: roughly $0.87 for 2 ounces)
There was also an offer for a free greeting card, but you still had to pay tax and postage, so I’m not including it in the review.
This wasn’t the most exciting box, but all of the products will eventually get used. The total of all the items comes to $31.34, which is more than the normal cost of the subscription, but not by much. However, I also used Amazon prices, as opposed to retail, so it’s still a good value. Besides, I pretty much never pay full price for my subscription.
