Life has been pretty hectic recently, so this review of the March Citrus Lane box is a little late. I love receiving and opening these subscription boxes, and as always, Citrus Lane did not disappoint. So, without further adeiu, on to my box:
The first item in the box was this Bow Tie from Baby Bow Tie ($25) . I feel like this bow tie is one of those things that I would love for Connor to have, but would not have bought it myself. Accordingly, I was really happy to see this item in the box, and I can’t wait for Connor to wear it. The tie was well-made, adjustable, and has a magnetic closure for easy dressing and removal.
The second item in the box was this Tweat Snack Ball from Ubbi ($10). This snack container has a pretty neat design. It has two large handles for holding, a weighted bottom that the container supposedly always stays upright, and an attached lid that stays on while opening. Connor’s not eating finger foods yet, however he will be in a few months. I cant wait to use this one.
The third item in the box was this First Play Peek-A-Boo Panda from Melissa & Doug ($8). I thought this was a pretty nifty wooden toy. The panda’s arm/hands flip up (over its eyes) and down, as if playing peek-a-boo. Connor is just starting to learn about object permanence and so this peek-a-boo panda is a perfect toy for Connor.
Finally, the last two products in the box were a 9 oz bottle Bubble Bath from Johnson & Johnson ($3) and a 3 oz bottle (not shown) of Head to Toe Baby Wash from Johnson & Johnson ($2). I know that many people online were disappointed with this item because this is a product everyone has heard of or used before (most likely in the hospital). But for me, I was happy with getting these items because they are much more useful than the tubes of lotion that I’ve gotten in past boxes.
Month after month, I am surprisingly pleased with Citrus Lane. They have a very nice mix of toys and useful items for baby. I think this is my favorite box so far because I can see using each and every item in this box. Overall, the I estimate the total value of the box to be about $48, which is a great deal considering the amount I paid for my box.
