Happy New Year! Citrus Lane January ’14 Review

13 Mar

Happy New Year everyone! Yeah… a little late over here! I’m a mama to a toddler after all! 😉
With that being said… we received Bean’s January Citrus Lane box in good order and it was a blast!
It was, also, the first month Bean’s cousin received her gift box from Citrus Lane… it was so fun to compare goodies.

Citrus Lane is a local Bay Area Peninsula company and even though we now live in Bend, I certainly think they are a great company in the Bay Area and will continue my reviews for this site! 🙂
Though I invite you mamas to head over to my new Mama Bendia blog, where I’ll continue to review products, talk mama-ness, things to do in Central Oregon, and general musings!

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

Here’s a look inside Citrus Lane’s January 2014 box for a 15mth-ish old boy :

~ Shape Sorter by Plan Toys :
Plan Toys is another great Bay Area company with a great retail location in Palo Alto.
This is cute… but I’m not gonna lie, I thought this Shape Sorter was a little young and too simple for Bean!
But I though, eh, it’ll be a good ’emergency’ toy to keep in the car… and so I found out… it was instead a good ‘go to’ toy! Bean grabbed on to it and didn’t let it go for a good few days every time we got in the car and it posed a challenge for him… which is a good thing! Turns out it was a fun and novel toy for our 20mth-ish cousin too, as she received it in her January box.

~ Zoo Lunchie by Skip Hop :
Oh my… sooooo cute! This little lunch box is so adorable, perfect little first lunch box.
Insulated and easy to wipe clean, it’s a great size for a few snacks, a sippy cup, and an ice pack.
The handle has a buckle which allows it to be clipped to a diaper bag.
Just check out all these animals they offer… doggie, bee, panda, lady bug, owl, fox, cat and more!
But, what’s this!?!??! Not only did Citrus Lane smartly pack this month’s boxes with great items for little dude and little miss… but they, ALSO, happened to know Just The Right animal lunchie to give each of the kiddos!
Bean received the Doggie and our niece received the Owl… perfecto-ness, indeed!

~ Ouchies Jr. Bandages :
Ah! Cute latex-free bandages sold in a lead-free tin… and a reminder that little Bean is getting ever more active… are boo boos in his future!?!?
Oh Boo Hoo, I say!

~ Dish Liquid from Dapple :
We got another Travel Size of this stuff… it’s a nice cleaning product for baby’s items, with a pleasant scent.

If I had purchased all these items individually… I’d have spent about $32, not including shipping & tax.
We, also, received great coupon codes for almost every company/item represented in the box!

It’s so fun watching my guys’ (hubs and boy) open the Citrus Lane box every month! :)
Look forward to February!

We opt for a yearly membership, so we pay just about $20/mth… but you can go a month at time for just $29 AND Get a whopping 50% off your very one 1st box here!
