Little Pim Digital Video – Value $10?

This box also came with a unique voucher code for a digital video from Little Pim – they offer courses in 11 different languages.

Verdict: We paid $21 for this box (6-month subscription) and received about $44 worth of products if you count the digital language video. The tea set and the Robot Mix & Match set are great quality gifts that I can’t wait to share, but I wish there were more items in the box this month. I guess that’s the trade off with getting bigger items.

What did you get in your Citrus Lane box this month?

  1. This month was my first of 3 months. I figured I would try it out for 3 months to see if my almost 2 year old liked it. This month I got the boo-boo ice packs, handy to have but I can’t see using them soon, some cherry lotion, the little Pim download, a growth chart and some Melissa and Doug wooden blocks. My daughter loves the blocks, not just to stack and knock down but also to say what’s on them. I haven’t downloaded the app yet, I’m still deciding which language to go with, so I don’t know if we like that yet or not. I am disappointed with the lotion and the ice packs as they are not something I would think of to put in a fun box for kids. They’ll get used eventually I suppose. And the growth chart, while cute, is not something I will be using. It will make a nice addition to a baby shower gift though, so it’s not a total loss. All in all, one decent toy for this month’s box has me hoping that the next two months get better.

  2. I got this for $5 thinking I could always give it away or sell it for basically what I paid for it. I was really surprised at the lack of stuff in the box. I was expecting at least one food item and possible one skin care item (I’ve seen sunscreen in the other boxes and dried fruit). Again, the shoe horn is silly, I don’t know any kid who would use it even if they were forced. The tea set is cute but for the full value price you would think you would get a full tea set. I do like mix and match cards but unless your child is very clean and respectful of their toys I could see those cards getting destroyed very quickly.

  3. I received 2 of the same box here, but for 6yr old boys which is not age appropriate at all. The quality is definitely very high, the tea set is even dishwasher safe which is great, and the mix & match set is well made, heavy & a great learning toy…but definitely a miss for 6 yr old boys. It was my first month and I cancelled immediately and told them why.

  4. I was debating on whether or not to sign up for this sub for my little girl and I’m definitely not going to. I can walk into a Wal-Mart, Family Dollar, Dollar General and maybe spend $10, if that, on a tea set and get a whole lot more pieces than just two.

  5. For my 3 year old daughter we got the tea set, animal alphabet flash cards, the digital language video and a shoe horn.(???). The quality of all items was very high, but I’m glad I only signed up for a month and had a $20 off coupon. I will be canceling for sure. The shoehorn was like a slap in the face 🙁

    • My 3 year old nephew got the same things. There was apparently supposed to be a vitamin sample too which was missing. I think the download and shoe horn are ridiculous. I subscribed for him to get a package of things to play with. Probably will be canceling.

  6. Trying to conceive so I love these boxes! I would probably have all the baby children subs. It would also be great to save some items each month for a nice Christmas which would be easier to make a nice Christmas or birthday n I know I would have to give up some of my beauty subs but it would be worth it. 🙂 Thanks for leaving your opinions so that I know which baby subs you love the most. The packaging is adorable and makes for great gifting! 🙂

  7. I am so glad we cancelled this! I miss stork Stack. They always had amazing curations and always included a book. This seriously is a waste of money. I mean a shoe horn? I’m sorry but I’ve been super disappointed with Citrus Lane. Especially after being charged double for a month and sent two boxes when I only wanted one. I’ll keep my money for something else.

  8. My 1 year old girl got a pig-on-wheels toy (my pick), baby lotion, wall hanging growth chart, and snack container.

  9. My 3mo old daughter got the lamb chime ball (I picked it), a paper mobile (owl), 3 glass food container and a cherry lotion. This was my first month and was not too crazy about it, hopefully the 2 remaining months I have would be better if not guess Ill cancel

  10. My 3-year-old daughter got a very similar box, with the tea set and shoe horn in pink, the Little Pim code, and a set of alphabet flashcards with a transportation theme (I got to pick that one–chose that over animals because we have so much animal stuff already). I agree that while it technically has a high value, the digital download made it seem like there was less stuff than there was. And a shoe horn, really???

    • My box was very similar to yours except we received a child’s ice pack (it’s called a booboo pad or something along those lines) instead of the shoe horn. Also, I used a promotion code last month to receive this box 100% free from the Ramblings of a Suburban Housewife blog. My almost 3 year old loves the tea set and the alphabet cards.

      • I would have preferred the ice pak because it’s something we could actually use!
