Citrus Lane Subscription Box Review – December 2015
Citrus Lane is a subscription box for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. (They customize your box to your child’s age and gender).
The box I’m reviewing today is for a newborn (gender neutral). I had my son (my first baby!) in September!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Citrus Lane
The Cost: $29 a month (or $24 a month with 3-month plan, $21 a month with 6-month plan)
The Products: The best products (Toys, books, snacks, etc.) catered to your child’s age.
Ships to: US and APO, DPO addresses.
Each box comes with a fold-out card detailing the items included and explaining that month’s “theme” or focus. (This card says my box includes “a special stuffed friend,” but it actually doesn’t. Everything else is accurate, though. Just FYI.
Pipsquigz Suction Toy – value: $6?
I thought this toy was odd when I first saw it and wondered how a kid would play with it. But when I looked it up for the value, I realized that it’s sold as 1 piece of a 3-piece set, which lets the kids stick them together and stack them and such. I’m not really happy to have received 1/3 of a toy set (especially when it doesn’t seem like there’s much to do with just one piece). I think this might show a little carelessness since it’s their last shipment.
Bumkins Toy Tether – value: $4?
I couldn’t actually find this online. This will likely be handy in the future!
Day & Night book from Petit Collage – value: $5.99?
Again, I couldn’t find this specific book for sale so I based the value off of similar books from Petit Collage. I’m happy to have this book! My son has lots of books, but I like that this one is very beginner and just helps with learning words first.
My First Stacker from Green Toys – value: $14.99
Stacking toys are a classic. I’m glad to have these since we actually don’t have anything like these for him just yet.
Verdict: Sad to say, but I’m underwhelmed with my last Citrus Lane box. I only really cared for half of the products, and one of the items was one-third of a toy set. My estimated value is just over $30, which breaks even. Even though this month wasn’t the best for me, last month was one of my favorites, and I’m ultimately sad to see them go!
