Citrus Lane review - August 2014

Olivia's Citrus Lane box finally came today! This is the longest it ever took, I was getting so impatient because I love getting these boxes. 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 gender neutral). This box is for an 18 month old girl.

Everything Olivia got in her August Citrus Lane box.
Petit Collage growth chart: I have been wanting to get Olivia a growth chart for a while now but just never got around to it, I was so excited to get this in the box! She is tiny so it's always been important to follow her height (and weight) closely so this is perfect. I love how there are little stickers to mark each time we check her height, it will be a cute little keepsake. It doesn't exactly go with her room (everything is pink) but I still like it, it's adorable. Retails for: $20.00? (I'm really not sure about this, I couldn't find the same one because it was a Citrus Lane exclusive.)

Melissa & Doug wooden ABC 123 blocks: I was just thinking about buying these for Liv, they have some at the Library and she loves stacking them (and knocking them down). I was going to wait until Christmas to buy them for her but now I don't have to. Seriously, perfect timing Citrus Lane! These are really great because they have letters, numbers and pictures on them. They are also the perfect size for her little hands, I already gave them to her and she approves. By the way, there are 50 blocks in this set and it also came with a bag to keep them in, I'm impressed! Retails for: $14.99

Episencial snuggly lotion - cherry: Oh my goodness, we love this lotion! This was one of the items in my June Favorites post. It smells amazing and it works great. This also came at the perfect time because we are just about out of it so I was going to have to buy more soon. Retails for: $9.50

Me4kidz - Cool It Buddy instant cold packs: I like the idea of these but Olivia hates when I try to put an ice pack on her. Last month when she fell into the table, I tried wrapping an ice pack with paper towels and putting it on her head but she freaked out and wouldn't let me. I'm wondering if maybe these aren't as cold, we'll see. If she lets me use them, I'm sure they will (unfortunately) come in handy. Oh and I think the little penguin is adorable by the way. Retails for: $2.99 

Add on items: This month (like every month) Citrus Lane sent out some great coupon codes so I used them for a few add to box items, which makes the box a little more fun in my opinion. I got Livy the Melissa & Doug paint with water book, it's for kids that are a little bit older but I figured I could just store it away for a while. I also got her a cute little Melissa & Doug magnifying glass, again.. for when she is a bit older. I got both of these items basically for free, I may have paid $1-2 but that is still a really great deal.

We also got a few coupons for (I probably wont be using those) and a free Little Pim download. I don't know much about Little Pim but it's a language program for kids. I will probably download it and see how it is, I love that they have Portuguese as one of the options because I'm Portuguese (and so is Liv obviously) so maybe she can learn a few words. Anyway, this months box was awesome! This was definitely my favorite box in a while, maybe even my favorite box ever. The total value of this box is about $47. Wow! Citrus Lane really did a great job this month, for us anyway. The value is great and I love everything we got, it's almost like they read my mind. I totally forgive them for taking forever to send our box this month. I bought the six month subscription and with coupons, I paid about $15 per month so it was well worth it this month. If you're interested in getting a Citrus Lane subscription for your child, 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 box or you will be charged again.
