I’m no stranger to subscription boxes, and for the most part, I find them to be little bundles of joy delivered straight to my doorstep. They are a great way to try products that I may not have heard of yet, or that might be a bit out of my price range but offered through a box service at a discounted price.
I decided to give Citrus Lane a try primarily because I was VERY impressed with how customized their boxes are. These are fun little boxes designed for children from the newborn stage, all the way up to preschool level. The company learns the exact age and gender of your child, and sends developmentally appropriate products. I appreciate this level of customization, as I have experienced other subscription boxes that weren’t as targeted, and therefore included products that were either too juvenile or too advanced for my child. Citrus Lane does a great job of hitting the mark!
Here’s what our box looked like:
The first item that got Layah’s attention was the Petit Collage beginner puzzle. She has played with this several times now, as she really enjoys putting things together (Legos, puzzles, etc.). It is cute, and spot-on for where she’s at developmentally. It definitely made for a fun new toy this month!
The other big highlight for her was the eco-kids play dough. It wasn’t quite as soft as the more popular version of the product, but since Layah has a tendency to taste whatever she makes with her dough, I was glad to see that this option was made with natural and organic ingredients.
The Medella citrus lotion that was included was a surprise for me, and I wasn’t too sure if Layah would like it. But as it turns out, she LOVES having me put lotion on her and do a massage. So that was a surprise hit, as well!
I honestly could take or leave the medi-buddy. It is a travel-sized first aid kit (though really it just has band-aids, some sterilizing wipes, a bit of ointment, and some stickers). I suppose this is a smart thing to keep in the car, though I’d rather just keep it in a zip-loc bag, as I’m not one for having this kind of thing take up more space than is necessary. Just my two cents, though!
