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! :)

GoRaw : Crunch into a ‘living’ snack! ;)

29 Apr

Strangely, since our big move last year… I hadn’t picked up a pack of these goodies!?
I think we’d kinda’ forgotten about them as we looked at other flavor options…
when I realized we’d actually started eating snacks that were not good for us… I knew I needed to revisit some old standbys!

Re-Enter Go Raw!!!

I happened upon their goodness years ago at our San D area natural foods store, Jimbo’s Naturally!
I’d purchased their flax snax crackers for a quick snack in the car! They were so good and savory… I then started eating some of their granola bars and Dano loved taking the ‘cookies’ to work for snacks.

Silly people, we were, to go off them! But in the time we’d not been eating them… they added SO many more flavor options AND had greatly improved their taste and texture (and they already had it good!)

HEY!! Also, the package says they are located in Mt. View, CA! So that makes for a perfect SFO Newb post. 😉

Go Raw products are Gluten, Wheat, and Nut Free!
They are prepared in the Raw method of being dried, not above 105degrees, so they are considered ‘Alive’!
They contain NO added sugar!
They are made with sprouted seeds, which is more nutritious for our bodies and digestion!
And they are 100% Organic!

AND they are YUMMY! 🙂
They are so crunchy and tasty!

Go Raw is a perfect addition to your kids afternoon snack and they are great to keep at work for when the crunch urge hits! Whether you are looking for Savory or Sweet… you will find enough to satisfy your wants with Go Raw!
Find them at your favorite Natural Foods Store or on-line!

Our favorites right now!?!?
Pizza Flax Snax and Lemon Super Cookies… mmmm… got to go… I have some crunching to do! 😉
