Citrus Lane review - October 2014

Olivia's Citrus Lane box came 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 gender neutral). This box is for a 20 month old girl.

Everything Olivia got in her October Citrus Lane box.

Janod taxi & pink car story city set: These are cute, each set comes with a wooden car and a little person. We already have cars similar to these so I may just keep one and sell or trade the other. I think I'll save the pink one for Liv's stocking. She really loves cars so I'm sure she would like either one of these. They are also compatible with standard train track sets but we don't have one. Retails for: $8.00 each

Ooh La Leggies pink leg warmers: This was the item that I got to choose this month. There were three different options. Solid pink, polka dot or cupcakes, I picked the solid pink because I figured they would go with a lot more outfits. The patterns were really adorable but we will definitely get more use out of the solid pink. We have another pair of leg warmers and I like them so these will be perfect for the fall and winter. Retails for: $10.00

Hohner Kids maracitos: These would have been great for Liv's stocking too but we already have maracas. I know that isn't Citrus Lane's fault but I will probably end up selling or trading these as well. They are pretty small, smaller than the set we already have. Retails for: $9.00

Add ons: The add ons are always my favorite! There was a coupon code that made these band aids free so of course I had to get them. They are Mr. Men and Little Miss, I used to love the Little Miss books when I was a kid and I forgot about them until now. I have to buy some of the books for Liv!
This months box was pink for breast cancer awareness* and they had some cute mustache cutouts to play with. I have to admit that when I saw the spoilers for this month, I was disappointed. It wasn't a great box but it was okay, I would have liked it better if we didn't already have most of the items in different versions. The total value of this box is about $35. I bought the six month subscription and with coupons, I paid about $15 per month so for me it was a good deal. However, if I paid the full price of $29, I would be a bit annoyed. 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.
*If you buy a Citrus Lane gift subscription and use the code BOWSTACHE at checkout, $20 will be donated to organizations supporting women's and men's health.
Olivia wanted nothing to do with the mustache so we had to bother Rooney.
