Citrus Lane January 2014

Rating: Lifer!!!!!
Cost: $29/month

My 19 month old daughter's Citrus Lane box arrived yesterday. I had no idea what we would be getting this month, because the only reviews I had seen were for older ages. I was pleasantly surprised by a very large box, but then I had remembered I bought an add on item. So, inside the large box was my add on and the regular Citrus Lane box. The boxes are so fun right now. They have winter scenes that you can punch out and shine a flashlight through to make a scene on the wall. So cute! This is what we got in this month's box.

The first item I pulled out of the box was the Shape Sorter from Plan Toys. My daughter immediately did the gimme hands, because she wanted to check it out! I think this will be a great toy for her to use in the car and when we are out, because the pieces stay attached. Plus it will take her a little while to figure it out because the rope makes it a little more difficult to fit the shapes and you have to do them in a specific order. I was very happy with this toy and so was my daughter!

We also received Adhesive Bandages from Ouchies, Jr. We had received these in an earlier month, but we got the Olivia pattern in the previous box and Mr Men & Little Miss 4 Girls pattern in this month's box. We will definitely use these and I think the patterns are so cute!

The Travel Wipes for Dapple are nice. These will come in handy when we are out and need to wipe something down before she touches it. I love that these are natural and free from phthalates, parabens, and dyes. These went right into the diaper bag!

And at the bottom of the box was something I never thought I'd see in one of our boxes, since they had them in previous boxes before I was a subscriber. The Lunchie from Skip Hop. I was so excited for this. I've been wanting one forever for her and thought about just buying one, but now I'm glad I didn't! We got the owl (I secretly wanted the panda, since we received the panda utensils in a previous month), but they are honestly all cute! This made the box for me.

I was also very excited about the add on item I ordered. The 3 Sprouts Pink Elephant Storage Bin is so perfect! I've wanted one for her nursery for awhile, but just never made the purchase. When I saw it as an add on and knew I'd save a little money, plus not have to pay shipping, I couldn't pass it up. These are large and sturdy and totally adorable! I'm very happy!!!

I was very pleased with this box as usual. I also received my Golden Tote January Mystery Tote yesterday and was more excited about my daughter's Citrus Lane box than the Golden Tote for me! And if you knew how addicted I am to clothes you would not believe it, but seriously it's true. I couldn't stop talking about her box and that super cute storage bin I ordered!

  1. Hi Kristie, just tried to publish a comment but I think it did not work so trying again. Sorry if you see duplicates. I just read this review and thinking I wish I got something like this for my youngest a couple years ago; she is almost four now. The sub looks really cute, and the owl lunchie is seriously adorable. Perfect for carrying snacks with you now and great for your first preschool/playdate later. I have a clothig sub for my girls but will look into a mixed item sub like this. Xo, Elif@theboxqueen
