It’s Citrus Lane time again! I saw plenty of spoilers this month, so I was pretty sure I knew what I was going to get. I was hoping for different variations of the things I got, but no such luck. Ah well. It’s still a pretty good box.
If you don’t already know, 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.
The theme this time is Thanksgiving/holiday mealtime and my box is geared towards a 16-month old girl. Let’s checka-check it ooout!
Tugboat from Green Toys – While I love Green Toys (they’re all made from recycled milk jugs!), I was really hoping to get the more “girly” cookware set that I saw in other boxes. That said, this is still cool. The boat can be filled with water and poured out of a little spout in front… Might make the hair rinsing part of bath-time a little less traumatizing for the girls. Fingers crossed. (Amazon Price: $9.99)
Everly was amazed by the boat. Chloe was kinda pissed off at it.
Bumkins Reusable Snack Bags – These are so cute! I have another Bumkins bag, but it’s Dr. Seuss-themed. I love that these have a more feminine design. I have nothing against gender-neutral stuff, but I do love me some hearts & birdies. 😉 These bags are waterproof and stain/odor resistant. We use the one we have all the time when we go out, so I’m happy to have more. (Amazon Price: $6.95)
Skip Hop Zootensils – This is a cute fork & spoon set from Skip Hop. The handles have soft-grip sides to make them easier for toddlers to hold on to. They’re PBA/PVC-free and dishwasher safe. (Amazon Price: $5.99)
Plum Organics Baby Food – A ton of Plum Organics pouches were recently recalled due to packaging/spoilage issues, so Citrus Lane is sending anyone who received one a voucher to replace it. I love these pouches and hate to toss it, but I guess better safe than sorry. (Amazon Price: roughly $1.85)
Pur-lisse Pur-Lip Comfort – This is the “mom gift”. It’s petroleum-free and made with nourishing shea and mango butters. I have a zillion lip balms due to sub boxes, so I might just pass this along to someone else. ‘Tis the season for giving and whatnot. 😉 (Amazon Price: $12.26)
All totaled, the items in this month’s box come to $37.04. So I definitely got my money’s worth, even if I won’t use the lip balm. Works for me.
Just posting this cos I love Chloe’s goofy face in the background. What a turd. 😉
