If you aren’t familiar, Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription box for babies from 0 to 5 years old which contains four or more products selected especially for the age and stage of your child. Citrus Lane is $29/month, but they always have great coupon codes that let you try them out very inexpensively!
Citrus Lane ships via FedEx Smart Post and took just under a week to arrive to me.
I knew right away I was going to like this box. It seemed at first glance to have a nice mixture of items for both boys to share.
The January 2015 Citrus Lane box includes the following goodies:
~Activity Placemats from Petit Collage ($12): These are coloring sheets / placemats for little ones. The pages give little suggestions on what to draw based on the character on the page and I know both boys will like these. WB has been into drawing lately and yesterday drew me a dinosaur. He told me what it was, but I am sure I could have guessed on my own ;).
~Colored EcoPencils from Faber-Castell ($3.49): You can use these colored pencils to color the placemats in this box. A fresh box of colored pencils probably excites me more than it excites L, but he does like to draw with them.
~Midi Basic Set from Plus Plus ($13.79): Hands down these are our favorite items in the box this month. They are little block type things that you can use to build 3-D items like cars or houses or you can use them on a table like a puzzle. I will be trading for more of these for the boys!
~Kids Complete Vitamins from Smarty Pants (~$1): These also came in yesterday’s box and again I will be giving them to L.
~60% Off Fabletics Offer: I believe that all boxes had the Fabletics offer in it this month. The offer is for 60% off your first outfit which is great because their normal offer is 50% off your first outfit.
All totaled I came up with a value of $30.28 for the January 2015 Citrus Lane box. The value is right around the full-price cost of the box, but since I have a longer subscription I pay well under $20/month for this. Had I paid full priced I probably wouldn’t have been as happy with it as I am. Like the 2.5 year-old box, everything in here is usable today and perfect for my boys. And I absolutely loved that they included an item from Plus Plus, which is a totally new brand to Citrus Lane (girls got GoldieBlox which are also new to CL) and I am hoping this is a trend for things to come! More new brands please Citrus Lane!
