So You’ve Probably Been Curious about Citrus Lane…yes?
I first heard about Citrus Lane from ads on my Facebook. At first I just ignored them (because that’s how I generally treat those ads), but one day I decided to click and see what it was all about. I’m so glad that I did!
From the time that our Citrus Lane box arrived outside of our door, I knew that I’d like it. Inside our box was a variety of products that were carefully chosen for the age and gender that I specified (in my case, I chose girl, 2-3 year old). In it, we received:
- A Pirate Puzzle from Barefoot Books* (actually, 2 puzzles — one easy, one a bit harder).
- ARTivity Books from Creativity for Kids*- fun on the go!
- Cheddar Bunnies from Annie’s
- Cute Paddington bandages from Ouchies Jr.’
- All Natural Hand Sanitizing Wipes* from CleanWell
- AND a free trial offer from FabKids, which meant a free outfit for our sweet Ada!
I immediately noticed that the products in this box were healthy and the toys were engaging for the child. No electronics or toys that were less-than interesting after playing with them once.
This box was perfectly suited for the tastes of a (okay, my) 2-3 year old, AND I was so glad that although I choose “girl”, it wasn’t filled with pink and princesses. Don’t get me wrong, there is a place for pink and princesses, but I was super happy (as was Ada) to get a pirate puzzle and Paddington Bear bandaids :).
I think that it’d be important to not think of this box to be a package ONLY for your child, but instead, it’s a package for both parent and child. Ada could have cared less about the natural hand sanitizing wipes, but of course I liked them. 🙂
Typically the box costs $25, unless you get in on one of their deals, or buy a subscription. Right now they are running a sweet deal where you can get your first box for half off- $12.50.
Thanks, Citrus Lane, for the complimentary box- a fun idea indeed!
