Citrus Lane totally delivered this month! I mean, I’m usually happy with everything they send, but this month was perfect. All of the items I hoped to get (from seeing spoiler pics), I ended up receiving in my box. Score!
For any newbies out there, Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription for babies/kids (aged newborn-5). It’s $25/month (cheaper with longer subs) and includes a nice assortment of toys, books, snacks, toiletries, etc. Sometimes they even include a gift for mom. Needless to say, I LOVE this box.
This time around, my box was geared towards a 14-month old girl. There really wasn’t much of a theme, though the info card does mention autumn and doing more indoor activities. Blahblahblah… Let’s see what I got!
Hape Push & Pull Crocodile – I love this guy! This little croc can be pushed (there’s a cut-out “handle” in the center) or pulled (there’s a string under the label). It rolls very easily on carpet, which is definitely a big plus. Another plus? It’s made with solid maple from sustainable forests and painted with non-toxic, child-safe paint. (Amazon Price: $14.98.)
Episencial Playful Wash (3.4 oz) – You can never have too much shampoo/baby wash! This stuff is chemical-free and made with organic ingredients. It’s also vegan, gluten-free and pH-balanced. Awesome. (Amazon Price: roughly $3.83)
Charley Harper 123’s from AMMO Books – This isn’t your everyday board book… It’s almost a mini work of art! Inside are beautifully drawn illustrations from the late American illustrator, Charley Harper. His whimsical drawings are colorful and perfect for little ones. I also really like the fact that they included a photograph of the artist on the last page. It was a nice, unexpected surprise. 🙂 (Amazon Price: $7.96)
Super Toddler Bar from Happy Family – We’re all about Happy Family products in our house. The girls LOVE their Happy Puffs. Unlike most conventional baby/toddler snacks, Happy Family products are organic and use all-natural ingredients. This toddler bar is also gluten-free. (Amazon Price: roughly $0.84)
Julep Nail Color in Coco – Yay! A mom gift! I’ve heard of Julep, but never actually tried it. There seems to be quite a buzz around this stuff. An obsession, even. Honestly, I don’t get it… Nail polish is nail polish, right? Apparently not. This polish is “4-free”, meaning it’s free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, & DBP (bad stuff). It’s also fast-drying, chip-resistant, and safe for little one’s toes. Bonus: I actually like the color! This is the first time I’ve gotten a polish from a sub box that I actually LIKE. Yay! (Amazon Price: $17.00)
So yeah, this box was AWESOME! All of the items are things that’ll get used, and though I may not have bought them all on my own (see: super expensive polish), I’m totally happy to receive them. All totaled, the value of everything in this box is an impressive $44.61. 😀
If you’re interested in trying out Citrus Lane for yourself, now’s a great time! They have 2 awesome deals available that expire soon — I posted them a couple days ago and they can be found right here!
Disclosure: I purchased this box on my own. I was not compensated in any way. All opinions are my own — I just really love this box! Amazon prices subject to change. Post contains affiliate links.
