Yay! WB’s April 2014 Citrus Lane box is here! He’s 24 month-old, so that is age this box is for. We also received a box for a 47 month-old boy (I always get two Citrus Lane boxes a month), but it was exactly the same as this one, so I won’t do a review on it! I have to say, it’s super rare that the boxes are totally the same for those age groups and this may be the only time I have ever seen it!
If you aren’t familiar, Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription box for babies from 0 to 5 which contains four or more products selected especially for the age and stage of your child. Citrus Lane is $29/month, but right now (through 4/22/14) they are having their semi-annual sale which gives you 44% off an annual subscription making it only $16.33/month!!
Citrus Lane ships via FedEx Smart Post and took the standard week to arrive. It was scheduled to arrive tomorrow, so I was lucky to see it today!
I’d seen various spoilers for this month’s Citrus Lane, but I wasn’t totally sure what we’d be getting for WB’s age group. I was totally thrilled when I saw this first look because I knew it would be perfect for him!
In honor of Earth Day which is this month, the April 2014 Citrus Lane box included products from partners who focus on eco-friendly design and items that seem to give a nod to the changing season. Here is what was included:
~Tools & Things from Green Toys (~$10): I think this set is exclusive to CL, so I just estimated the price. I know want the entire Green Toys toolset! WB is getting to the age where he wanted to “help” B and I out with things, so this is perfect timing. Also, why aren’t all screwdrivers labeled like this? I recall many times my Dad telling me to get a phillips screwdriver and I was all huh? Which one is that?
~Set of 2 Tumblers from Green Toys ($5.99): So funny, but I just ordered a bunch of Green Toys cups and plates and bowls. WB has perfected drinking out of a cup and it’s all he likes to drink out of now, so I figured we better stock up!
~Prince’s Bedtime Book & CD Set from Barefoot Books ($9.99): It’s possible we have this book, but I don’t know where it would have come from and I don’t know where it is right now! It if it a duplicate I will pass it along to my mom to keep at her house or to have up north this summer.
~Lemon Verbena Dish Soap from Mrs. Meyers Clean Day (~$0.50): I was under the (wrong) impression that Meyers soap was expensive. I clearly was wrong! I use Honest Co. stuff, but I do like the smell of this more and may have to make the switch every once in a while.
~Greeting Card Offer from Treat ($1): This offer is good for one free card from Treat which we will totally use. Maybe B will make me one with this code for Mother’s Day!
All totaled I came up with a value of $27.48 for the April 2014 Citrus Lane box. Boxes are $29/month if you opt for the month-to-month option, however, like I mentioned before you can get an annual subscription for $16.33/month right now (through 4/22) which is for sure the way to go! I would have picked the Green Toys stuff on my own and I will be using the coupon code included to pick up some more Green Toys things (FYI: Green Toys has amazing customer service).
Did you get a Citrus Lane this month? What age did you get and what came in your box? If you are interested in subscribing, click here. Like I mentioned you can take advantage of their semi-annual sale or if you just want to try a box, you can use the coupon code “TAKE20OFF” to save $20 off your first box! That would make your first Citrus Lane box $9 which is a complete steal!!! You will be enrolled in a monthly subscription (which you can always cancel if you are not happy), but it’s totally an amazing way to try them out!
