One of our two August 2014 Citrus Lane boxes arrived today. This one is the second box we order which is aged for a 4 year-old boy. It’s right in between L and WB’s age and it tends to have items that both of them like.
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 have a coupon code “SAVEHALF” which lets you pick up your first box for 50% off! And if you order an annual subscription the price drops down to $19/month. I always opt for the longer subscription with them because it’s a way better deal.
Citrus Lane ships via FedEx Smart Post and took the standard week to arrive.
I didn’t seek out a ton of spoilers for this month’s Citrus Lane, but I thought I had a pretty good idea of what was coming anyway. And based on the first look, I was right!
The August 2014 Citrus Lane box had “a little something for everyone this month”. Our four year-old boy box contained the following items:
~Mix & Match Robot from Petit Collage ($15): These cards are super cute and we don’t have anything like it right now! I was, however, surprised when I opened that big box to find only two decks of cards in it. The decks have a bunch of cards in them to piece together (3 cards = 1 robot), but the box just seemed like a little much maybe?
~Tea for Two from Green Toys (~$11): This set was made just for Citrus Lane, so I had to guess at the price. I wasn’t expecting it to be such a huge hit with the boys, but they both loved it. They pretended to have a tea party first (and took turns pouring) and then L actually filled up the teapot at dinner so they could pour their own beverages. How cute! I actually have the full set of this stashed away and it appears I need to break that out because they were so into this.
~Kids Shoe Horn from Jasmine Seven ($3.95): I can honestly say that I have never once considered getting a kids show horn. I don’t even know where the kids shoes are half the time so I don’t know if I could keep track of this? I will let L see what he thinks of it in the fall though when he starts wearing real shoes everyday and not just flip-flops.
~Language Video Digital Download from Little Pim ($11.99): This card is good for a digital download for one video in the language of your choice. I really like that they are allowing us to pick which language we want to work on and will probably download Spanish for the boys.
All totaled I came up with a value of $41.61 for the August 2014 Citrus Lane Box. Not my favorite box they’ve ever done, but the tea pot got such a huge thumbs up and I know (with the exception of the shoe horn) we will use the other two items so I am happy! I do wish it had a little something else though because the digital download kind of makes it seem like it’s missing something. Maybe a little hand cream or lip balm or something would have rounded this out nicely!
