Citrus Lane November 2014 Review

I feel like it took FOREVER for my Citrus Lane box to get here this month. Didn’t help my Mystery Box and other items I purchased came like 2 weeks ago, in two separate shipments, so I felt like was being taunted. When it finally came, it was super heavy, so I was curious to see what was in it. And lately I’ve been wrapping most of the items for Christmas presents for the girls too!
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 24 Month Old, Toddler Girl, November 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.

Melissa & Doug Mermaid Dress-Up Chunky Puzzle ($9.99): Lately, Citrus Lane has been letting us choose a specific “option” of one selected item for our box. Or you can choose for them to pick for you. This month’s selection was this puzzle and we had a few variations to choose from and this is the one we liked the best. EM really likes puzzles so I was excited this was included.


 Plan Toy Vegetable Play Set (~$10.80) he link isn’t to the EXACT set we got, looks like this set was exclusive to Citrus Lane   but this one was very similar. Plan Toys does sell the items individually as well, so that is how I came up with the estimated value. EM loves her kitchen and the food accessories she has, so this will be a nice addition.
 Bear Takes a Trip Board Book ($6.56) We already have this book but from a previous Citrus Lane  box, so I’ll be saving it for a baby shower gift. Lately a lot of baby showers have been requeting cards inlieu of books and I love it. My shower was the same way and EM got so many awesome books before she was even born.

  Fast and Slow Board Book ($6.51) Citrus Lane had included a little note card stating they threw in an extra book since we may have received a duplicate item from a previous box,, which we obviously did, so I’m glad they wanted to make up for it and gave us this book, which we don’t have. This is a good board book showing opposites. 
Annie's Homegrown Cheddar Organic Snack Mix(~$0.44 for 1 oz package) I’ve heard good things about Annie’s products but I’m not a huge “must be organic” person so I’ve never bought them. These sure are yummy though!
Total Estimated Value of Box: ~$34.30 (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:  If I didn’t count the “extra” item that they threw in because of the duplicate, the value wasn’t that great, but overall love all the items. Especially the Veggie set! I’ve been eyeing it for a while and have seen it included in boxes before so was SUPER excited to get it in ours!
If you are interested in signing up for Citrus Lane, CLICK HERE, and by using my link, you will get 50% off your first box (new customers only). Remember, you can cancel at any time, so your first box would only be $14.50, not too shabby!
Did you get Citrus Lane this month? What'd you get and for how old of a child?
