Citrus Lane review - May 2014

We had a very busy weekend (I will post about that tomorrow) but I finally have a minute to do this review. I got Olivia's Citrus Lane box yesterday. Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription box for babies/toddlers. You pay a certain price per month depending on how long you want to subscribe (it’s cheaper for the longer subscriptions). Every month you receive four to five items for your child and sometimes something for you as well. The boxes are age and gender appropriate (or you can pick neutral). This box is for a 15 month old girl (I think). I’m not sure when their cutoff date is, she turned 15 months on the 16th so I don't know if this is a 14 or 15 month box.

Everything Olivia got in her May Citrus Lane box.

Crocidile Creek 5" jungle orange playball:
We finally got to pick an item! I kept reading comments about other people getting to pick something in their box and this is the first time we were able to pick, I was overly excited. We had the choice of different patterns for this rubber ball and I liked this one the best. I actually picked it because it's gender neutral. I figured that I should stop buying so many girly things in case the next one is a boy (if we even have another kid). Olivia loves this! She has been carrying it around, rolling it, throwing it and kicking it. It's small but it's perfect for her little hands, she's been playing with it a lot. Retails for: $8.99

Goodbyn snack container:
I know this will get used but I think we are all set on plates/bowls/tupperware. Olivia has gotten one or the other in pretty much every subscription box (not just Citrus Lane). I have yet to buy her one at the store, hopefully we don't get too many more because the cabinets are filling up quick, there's not much room left. Anyways, I like this and it's good for on the go so it will come in handy and dishwasher safe is always a plus. Retails for: $5.50

Green Toys stacking cups:
At first I wasn't too excited about getting this, we already have a few stackers but this one is a bit different. It's thick sturdy plastic, the cups are star shaped and I like the colors. I think this will double as a bath toy and apparently they are volume accurate. When she is older, they can be used to teach her some math skills, which I am terrible at but I'll try. I actually saw these at the store the other day and debated buying them, glad that I decided not to. She has been playing with these a lot, her favorite thing to do is bang them together but she was stacking them too. Retails for: $10.99

Back to Nature - Honey graham sticks:
I have yet to give Olivia anything with honey in it (paranoid irrational mom) because I know it's one of the high allergen foods but I'm sure it will be fine. I saw some spoilers and was hoping we would get the chocolate chip cookies, these look good too though. I like having snacks that I can just grab and throw in the diaper bag on the way out the door. Retails for: $1.60

Jasmine Seven - Fresh feet wipes :
Okay Citrus Lane, what are you trying to say hm? My feet don't smell! Well.. I hope they don't. These are.. interesting. I guess I will try them. Possibly after wearing flip flops at the park or beach, they could come in handy. I'm not loving the scent though, peppermint is not my favorite. Nothing exciting but still useful ..I guess. Retails for: $3 (they only had a 3 pack on the website so that's just an estimate).

I really loved the box this month and so did Olivia! The total value of this box is about $30. I got a six month subscription and with coupons, I paid about $15 per month. It's definitely worth it to me. However, if I paid the full price of $29 per month, I would be a bit disappointed with the value this month. With that being said, Citrus Lane always has coupon codes and awesome deals so keep an eye out. If you're interested in getting a Citrus Lane subscription for your child, you can use the code TAKETEN for $10 off your first box or you can use my referral link to get 50% off your first box - Melissa's CL referral. It's a subscription so make sure you cancel after your receive your boxes or you will be charged again.

It's so hard to take pictures when she just wants to play but I tried. (Happy customer!)
