So if you're wondering if it's worth spending the money each month on, I'm going to break down what came in my February box. Let me start by saying I love how they used tissue paper to make it seem like a nice little present. My little guy loved opening it to see what was inside. It was like Christmas to him! This was after I opened it to take pictures and put it all back together of course. He was sleeping though, so he didn't know. Shh, don't tell him.
First up is the Green Toys Stock Pot and Utensils. My son absolutely loves kitchen stuff, so this was a great product for him to get. While we already have a few things for his kitchen set we have, these were a great addition and he really enjoys playing with them. The lid is a bit hard for him (and even me) to get off, but it's a great product. I absolutely love Green Toys! They're made with 100% recycled milk jugs, which is probably the coolest thing ever! We have a bath toy from Green Toys that he loves as well. I couldn't find the exact retail value of this. I found a set with an extra piece for $16.99.
The next item up is actually for moms which is really cool! This is Green Apple Age Defy Hand Cream. I love that they added a product in for moms. This cream has organic apple juice, organic white grape juice, organic lemon juice, organic aloe leaf juice, organic jojoba oil, organic shea butter, algae extract, green tea leaf extract and organic linseed seed oil. So basically this is a great organic hand cream! This retails for $12.
Next up is the Oogaa Silicone Divided Plate.
This is such a cute little plate! It's great to keep all your toddlers food separated, which can be important since toddlers can be extremely picky. I know my little guy doesn't really like his food mixing because if he doesn't like the taste of something,
he doesn't want that on his other food. The plate is BPA free, has no harsh chemicals and is easy to clean. Like really easy. It's also dishwasher, microwave, freezer and oven safe. That's pretty impressive. I love that it's silicone because if he decides to throw or slam his plate, it's not going to break. This actually goes with his airplane spoon I won in a previous giveaway, so that's pretty awesome. (I just need to get him the train spoons, because I know he'll love those!) This plate retails for $10.99.
Last but not least is Starlight Sailor from Barefoot Books! This might actually be my favorite item in the box. The illustrations are beautiful in this book. C seems to be really interested every time I read it and loves pointing out what he sees. Especially the dog! These books are extremely well made. It's such a nice thick cardboard book, which is definitely a plus for us. My little guy is notorious for ripping pages in his books, so this book is going to be able to stand up to his destructive side. Starlight Sailor retails for $14.99.
I'm really impressed with this being my first box. The products were all great and really fit for what my toddler is interested in currently. The value of all the items in the box is roughly $50 which is a great deal for only spending $29 a month. (I got mine free with a promotion they were running.) Although, like I said in the beginning, your first box is 50% off when you sign up and you can always cancel after a month if you'd like. If you're interested in signing up, use my referral code here and get your first box half off. If you're interested in seeing what some of the previous months have been to see what kinds of products you might get, Jenny over at Cloth Diaper Revival writes up a great post each month with what she gets. I always enjoy reading her posts and they really made me want to try Citrus Lane!
Again, use my referral code so you can try out one month for 50% off! That's such a great deal for a box that is worth about $50 or more each month! https://www.citruslane.com/invitedby/Katie.Fender.2767822
