Review: Citrus Lane / September

Citrus Lane did it again this month.
I was beyond impressed with the quality of the products we received,
and although there wasn't much in the way of toys for my little man, 
it was a home run in my book! 

Our box for September
Snack Bag from Bumkins $4.95

I'm going to start off with my absolute favorite item this month. 
My little man's brand new Tea Collection shirt. 

The Tea Collection is 
"Globally inspired children's clothes, for little citizens of the world."

So each shirt from the Tea Collection is inspired by the designer's
travels around the world.
Seriously... How fun is that?! 

We received the Baumhaus shirt.
"Baumhaus (bow-m-house) means "tree house."
This graphic is inspired by the story of a tree house in Berlin
that was built out of garbage, but is now a garden center for kids."

A cute little story to go along with each shirt, yes please! :)

And yes, fall is officially here as of tomorrow.
However it's still hitting 100 here in Arizona. 
This shirt came in a size "2" and I am so thankful.
I already tried it on my little man 
and it is going to be a PERFECT fit for the winter. 

This is one of the softest shirts in my son's wardrobe, and also one of the cutest. 
I mean seriously, look at the detail. :) 

Next, we got the Mickey Mouse snack bag from Bumkins

We have a couple waterproof bibs from bumpkins and I absolutely love them,
so I was super excited to get this in our box. 

Bumpkins snack bags are reusable bags made from a waterproof fabric
 which makes them super easy to clean, just like their bibs.
They are machine washable and dishwasher safe
(although I've yet to find a reason where I'd want to throw it in the dishwasher!)
They are also eco-friendly and a GREAT 
alternative to plastic bags.

Not only does my son love Mickey Mouse but he is just months away from his 
very first peanut butter and jelly...
which I'm already assuming he'll love,
(waiting on the two year introduction to peanuts) 
and just how perfect is this large snack bag for a delicious sandwich on the go!

I was also very excited about the next product we got, 

About a year ago, we received the Dive Bath Appliques from Boon
and they are one of my son's favorite bath toys.

So I was so excited to see these new Bath Appliques, but with a twist.

These Links 3D Foam Pieces fit together
to create five different sea animals
which is not only fun, 
but also makes this product great for problem solving and motor skill development.

An added bonus:
Boon products don't absorb water (really!) 
so there is no chance of mold or mildew buildup (great news to any mama!) 

And last, we received a lead-free tin filled with some adorable bandages

This tin came with 20 bandages, and although they are not 
Mickey Mouse, or Thomas The Train, 
I'm sure if my son got hurt and needed one, he would absolutely 
not complain about having to use one of these.

I didn't open any of them, because let's be honest
I have a little boy, wasting bandaids is not something I want to be doing
but judging by the tin, they are super adorable, colorful, and fun.
I will definitely be keeping in the diaper bag just in case


Monthly Box Subscripton Cost: $25.00*
(locked in rate, subscriptions are now $29.00)
(Approximate) September Box Value: $46.44

This was the second month in a row that I was very happy 
with my box, and that hasn't happened for quite some time. 
I came out ahead by $21.44 and loved each and every item.

And in the almost two years since I've been a Citrus Lane member,
we received an item of clothing, which I absolutely loved
and hope they add more items like these in the future.

I look forward to being a continued member of Citrus Lane, 
and can't wait for the next months ahead!

    1. YES! The boxes go to up to age five. :) I've been a member for almost two years now and there have been few months where I've been disappointed. Most of the time we love our boxes, and some of my son's absolutely favorite toys / books have come from them! There is a code for first time customers where you can get a box for just $5 through September 26th. If you wanted to try it, you would just use the code "newmom" at checkout! :)
