Good for the Soul! CitrusLane October ’13 Review

2 Nov

Yes! Bean’s October Citrus Lane! box was truly ‘good for the musical, cleanliness, and ‘do good’ soul’! 🙂

Citrus Lane is a local Bay Area Peninsula company and I could not be more happy with their service!

Upon signing up, we provided age and gender of our little one and now receive a wonderful box of age-appropriate goodies every month!

Here’s a look inside Citrus Lane’s October 2013 box :

~ A Hohner Kids Toddler Tambourine :
Um, yeah, soooooo we received our box just a day before we were to head out on a flight for a visit to see family and friends for a week! As soon as Bean saw this safe for kids Toddler Tambourine he dropped everything to get his hands on it… and he has not been without it since, even through 4 flights and borrowed cars, he kept a tight-fisted hold on it!
And, yes, he actually does make music with it, I think it’s helped him understand music making a bit more and in this last month he’s started using his toys to ‘make music’ and has started dancing more and more, even moving his head to the beat! Dang Cute!
The tambourine is safe in that it’s the perfect size for baby’s grip, so they won’t drop it too often; it’s light-weight so they won’t flail about trying to ‘work it’; it has 4pairs of jingles secured within a safe housing so that little fingers won’t get stuck!
He’s been so taken with this tambourine, that I opted to include the add-on Hohner Harmonica to our November box.

~ An awesome bath toy by Boon :
Scrubble! Love this name! 🙂
These are coolio looking egg-shaped bath toys with fantastic colors and textures! They screw apart, so that they can be air-dried after bathing to keep mold at bay. Because they unscrew, they can be mixed and matched… so fun and cool looking!
So far Bean hasn’t quite figured out how to get water into them, but he loves when we do that for him… so it’s on the horizon… just another fun, developmental toy for him!
They are BPA, phthalte, and PVC Free.

~ Snacky Chips from Good Boy Organics : $1.50
We received a little snack bag of Sea Salt flavored BOPS (Backed Organic Potato Snacks)… they were pretty yummy and Bean really liked them too!
They are gluten-free and were nicely, not too salty, and there are other flavors… BBQ, White Chedder, Sour Cream & Chive… might be interested in looking to them further, if I see them out and about.

~ A Cricket Magazine :
BabyBug looks like a cute little ‘magazine’ for babes! I have to admit, my little guy does love board books (turning the ‘pages’ and sliding the interactive hide & find ones), though he doesn’t sit still for a whole book to be read to him! I should probably consider reading to him more. Whew! He’s just so interested in the world!
However, this little magazine is pretty smart… no staples, rounded corners, non-toxic ink… it’s a good find to have around the living room.
CitrusLane and Cricket, also, offered a 3Mth Digital subscription to BabyBug on-line!

Lastly, but most cool-ly, CitrusLane had the October boxes specially made with Pink Mustachios to pop out and ‘dress up’ baby with! In a movement called “Health Raisers” they incorporated Pink for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month AND Mustaches for November’s Movember/Men’s Health Awareness Month!!

If I had purchased all these items individually… I’d have spent more than $30, not including shipping & tax.

As always, we are excited for next month’s box!!!! Gobble Gobble!?!?
It’s so fun watching my guys’ (hubs and boy) open the Citrus Lane box every month! :)
