For those of you that don't know, Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription service where you get a box of goodies for your child that are geared towards their current age (and sometimes Mommy) each month delivered to your door. You never know what you are going to get, but overall I have not been disappointed. Plans start at $29/month but if you buy longer subscriptions you can get them as low as $19/month or even cheaper when they run specials).
Citrus Lane always includes a very nice information card with their boxes that lists the items and descriptions and some coupon codes!
This is what I got in my 23 Month Old, Toddler Girl, October 2014 Box and the approximate retail value I found for each item from their specific website (or Amazon, since if you know me, I'm an Amazon Junkie and would most likely buy from there). Sometimes I have to do some math because the sizes aren’t quite the same, hence why they are approximate values.
Pink Car Story City Set and Taxi Story City Set ($5.95/each = $11.90 for the two)I had intended to keep these little cars for stocking stuffers for EM but she knocked the box off the counter and everything spilled out and then she wanted to play with them, so I gave in. They are cute little wooden cars that are perfect for toddler sized hands. I can see the little "people" that came with them getting lost easier though since they don't have wheels and won't be as interesting. I like that these will go on standard wooden train track sets (We don't have any yet but I could see EM getting into trains in the near future)
Leg Warmers from Ooh La Leggies in Pretty in Pink ($10.00)These little leg warmers will be perfect for once Florida decides it really is fall! EM hasn't worn any since she was a baby (I only had one outfit with them) so I'm hoping she'll wear these :) Citrus Lane let us choose which style of these we wanted with our box this month. I like that they are now letting you choose one item if you want to!
Maracitos from Honer Kids (~$5.30 for a set of two) - I could see these getting VERY annoying but my parents have some maracas that they picked up when I was a kid traveling that they kept and EM loves them, so I'm sure she and AB will get a kick out of making "music" with these. I'll be saving these for Christmas for her since she didn't notice them when she knocked over the box!
Total Estimated Value of Box: ~$27.20 (not including shipping)
Total Cost of Box: $29.00 (free shipping) -- I only paid $10 though because of an awesome deal I found on Plum District --> definitely keep an eye out for those on Plum District, Groupon and Living Social!
Overall Impression: This is probably the first time I ever received a box that was valued less than a normal box costs. Had I paid full price, I would have been disappointed but it was definitely worth the $10 I did pay as I do love all the items this month!
