Citrus Lane March 2013

Our March Citrus Lane boxes arrived on the 19th- but I haven't had time to sit down and post a review.  This month, the mailman left the boxes on our doorstep instead of our mailboxes so Daddy got them while we were out for a walk.  When we came home, Ryan was SO excited to see his box!

 Grandma got the boys both a 3 month Citrus Lane subscription (Groupon) for Christmas. This is now our third (& final) month receiving our packages.

For anyone who does not know, Citrus Lane is a subscription box service for babies/toddlers/kids from birth to age 5. Basically, you will receive a surprise box filled with 4-5 (mom approved, top of the line) items tailored to your little ones age.

You can get boxes on a month to month basis for $25/month.. or you can a 6 month subscription for $21 a month! When I signed up, I put in my little one's name, birthday, and gender to ensure that both Ryan & Jake will receive boxes especially made for them.

Citrus Lane ships their boxes from California on the 15th of every month and arrive on your doorstep between the 17th and 22nd of every month. Did I mention that you also receive free shipping?!

I wanted to do another monthly review because like me, every one google searches Citrus Lane reviews and my last review got a ton of hits and I even recieved a $10 credit for someone signing up through my link. Thank you :)
So.. Here we go!
"Momma- Open!"
The first box we recieve is for a 33m old boy.
Happily, opening up his March box.
1. Slumber Friends Plush Pillow from Coud B.  Ryan is loving pillows at this age, so he was pretty excited about getting a new pillow.  & He knew it was a pillow right away.  It also has a removable lavendar scented aromatherabpy pouch for extra soothing.  It also has a little velcro latch and loop hole so it can be converted into a pillow pet. This retails for $21.95, and it came with a coupone code for 20% off.
2. On the Road Pouch Puzzle from Mudpuppy.  This is my favorite item in our box this month.  Ryan's at the perfect age to start doing puzzles and it has cars all over it!  It came in a resealable durable plastic pouch too.  We actually took this out to dinner the night we got it.  Puzzle retails for $9.99, and it came with a coupone code for 20% off.
3. Jungle Tattoos from Wee Gallery.  Okay- so the tattoos are cute, but Ryan has never seen a tattoo before.  I was a little concerned seeing these in his box.  He does love stickers, so maybe he would like them.  I feel he's a little too young for these.  We'll give them a try and I hope he likes them.  These retail for $5.00.  A little high I think- I'd never buy a pack of 12 tattoos for $5.00.  This also came with a coupon code for 20% off.
4. He also recieved a Banana & Apple Pouch from Peter Rabbit Organics.  You can see it in the first picture of him opening his box.  He ate it right away so I didn't get a picture.  My kids looove the food pouches so I was happy to see it in his box.  Retails for $1.46.
5.   The last thing in Ryan's box was a $20 coupon code for JUSTFAB. You have to spend $20 extra in order for the code to work. I've never heard of it, but we will not be using it so I'm not counting it towards anything of value.
Here's Ryan having fun with all of his Citrus Lane goodies!
The second box we get is for a 15m old boy.. He was too interested in his waffle that he let big brother open his box for him!
1. Slumber Friends Plush Pillow from Cloud B.
2. Puzzle Wheel from Mudpuppy.  My boys LOVE this pillow! It's easy enough for Ryan to put together on his own.  A little too hard for my 15m old, but he will grow into it.  It has cute little robots on it & the colors are super bright & my 33m old LOVES naming all of the colors.  Excellent choice!  This is our favorite thing that came in our boxes this month.
3. Jungle Tattoos from Wee Gallery.
4. Two Packets of Food+ Recipe Card from NuturMe.  This is pretty interesting.  It's dried fruits and veggies that you can mix into their favorite meal to boost its nutritional value.  I think I just might use these for my older son. My 15m old eats anything I give him, where my 33m old is so picky.  This came with a $1.00 coupon to use online at their website.
5.  Another coupon code for JUSTFAB.
Here are my little ones enjoying their puzzles.
Overall, I am happy with the contents in our February Citrus Lane box.  This was my least favorite of the three boxes.  We loved the pillows, baby food samples, and puzzles.  That alone covers the retail price of the box.  Granma only paid a little less than $12 a box through Groupon. Would you like to try out Citrus Lane? You can get your first box for only $15 by clicking the link Citrus Lane Sign up. You will get $10 off your first box and I will get $10 off my next order.
I just renewed one of their subscriptions for another 3 months!  Looking forward to our future boxes.
