Here comes February Citrus Lane review #2! I love that my mom has her own subscription for the girls… Especially since it happens to be one of my favorite boxes. Yay for grandmas!
If you haven’t heard, Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription for babies/kids aged newborn-5. It’s $29/month (less with longer term subscriptions) and includes a nice assortment of toys, books, snacks, toiletries, etc. Sometimes they even include a gift for mom. It’s by far one of my favorite boxes to open each month.
My mom ages this box up, so I think this is for a 3 or 4 year old.
Let’s see what’s inside our (second) February Citrus Lane box!
February’s box featured products centered around “wonder and imagination”.
First look: Citrus Lane “first looks” always look the same… I’d stop posting them altogether, but I like to include ’em just for the new readers (Hi new readers!).
Hape Lacing Skate ($11.99) – I love Hape products. They’re always well made with child-safe, eco-friendly materials. This wooden skate helps kids learn how to lace and tie their shoes. It also has a pair of velcro straps for those not quite ready for lacing. My girls love anything with wheels, so this was an instant hit.
Tegu Magnetic Block Set ($15) – I’ve heard a lot about these blocks, so I was interested to see what they were all about. They’re basically just wooden blocks with magnets embedded inside. This allows you to build in ways you just can’t do with traditional blocks. They’re made with sustainably sourced wood and painted with water-based, child-safe paints.
I Could Be, You Could Be from Barefoot Books ($5.88) – A cute book about make-believe. A boy and a girl imagine what it would be like to be an astronaut, a dolphin, monkey, dragon, and more. The front of the book hints at making your own masks, so I assumed that meant there’d be a cut-out page or something like that, but nope… Just directions on how to make a mask using your own materials. Pffft. Ah well.
YumEarth Naturals Sour Beans – (~$1) – We got these in our other February box too. They’re sour gummy candies made with real fruit & veggie extracts and they contain no gelatin (yay!). I usually don’t care for sour candy, but these were strangely addictive.
The total value of all the items in this month’s Citrus Lane box (using Amazon prices) comes to roughly $34. Not a crazy high value, but still more than the cost of the subscription. When I first saw the skate spoiler, I wasn’t too excited about it, but turns out it’s actually pretty cute. The Tegu blocks are neat and I’m glad we finally got to see what all the hype was about.
