Citrus Lane August 2013 Review - 3 Month Old Boy




This was our first month to receive a Citrus Lane Box. Just to give you a quick run down about the business. Citrus Lane is subscription service for children. You pay to receive a new box of things each month. I bought a 6 month subscription. Boxes start as low as $21 a month. It ships around the 17th of each month and comes to your door by USPS. 


Here is the first few looks at what came inside of our box. 


  


Okay now to the stuff:

This is a cute little book at goes through the alphabet. Allen and I really love to read to Gator so this will be great for him. As teachers we are excited to help in his education. There are really bright pictures to get a child's attention. When I read through the book the first time I did notice that it doesn't say what the picture is, it describes the picture. This will make for good conversation about what the words and pictures are talking about. 





These wipes are biodegradable and kill germs naturally. They are alcohol-free and safe for sensitive skin. I plan to stick these in the car for outings. I am excited about these because they will be safe for Gator. They also smell like a creamsicle. (Which is my favorite snowcone flavor.) 

Calendula Diaper Care Samples by Weleda (3 samples)





I am interested in this strap as well. While Gator is just getting grabby and wanting to throw things, I see this being very useful in the future. I am sure I could even use this for Sofia the Giraffe. 





This was Gator's and my favorite this out of the whole box. As soon as we opened the box he wanted that and snatched it up.I am so glad he got the frog. He is a gator and they eat frogs so it is perfect for him. :D It is soft and cuddle, lightweight, and sticks together with Velcro. It is making a great chew toy right now. 






 Fabkids ($39.99 value):
This was a code for a free outfit from Fabkids. It is a subscription service that delivers an outfit every month. You had to sign up for the service to get the out fit and paid $5.00 in shipping the receive after the code. So, its really only a $34 value. The sizes start at size 2 and Gator is only in 6 months; he won't be able to wear it for a while. However, I did order a size 2 and plan on cancelling the service whenever I receive the outfit. 


Overall I thought this was a really good first box. I look forward to receiving our next 5 boxes. I paid $21.00 for this box and the items in it cost about $76. Gator is going to get great use out of these items. There was also a 20% off coupon off on order at barefootbooks.com.
