Citrus Lane May 2013 Review

It's box time again, and Citrus Lane is one of our favorites! Citrus Lane is a monthly box filled with 4-5 items specifically chosen to fit your child's age and stage. Their boxes are $25 monthly or $21 if you purchase a six month or one year subscription. Froggy's box was designed for a four month old boy.

This is the box we received for Froggy. There's nothing I love more than a full box! Here is what was inside:

I'm always excited to see books in our boxes. This one is a board book from Barefoot Books called "Bear Takes a Trip". The book is adorable, and it also teaches the reader how to tell time. It's definitely something that will grow with us. "Bear Takes a Trip" retails for $6.99.

I have heard so many good things about this gripe water! It is a natural supplement designed to help ease baby's tummy troubles. I've been meaning to try some with Froggy forever, so I was thrilled to see this in our box. Mommy's Bliss gripe water retails for $9.99.

It's The Mommy Hook! I think I remember seeing an infomercial for this a few years ago. It clips onto your stroller handle, and then you can use it to hang your shopping bags. I was a little meh about this one, but I think it's worth trying out. Who knows, I might be raving about how great it is in a few weeks! The Mommy Hook retails for $6.99.

Froggy already has a set of Green Toys keys from his April Stork Stack, and we absolutely love them. The ring is thin and easy to grasp, and the whole rattle is very lightweight. It was the first rattle Froggy was really able to use. As an added bonus, they are made from 100% recycled plastic milk jugs right here in the USA. The Green Toys "First Keys" retail for $7.99.

Dapple dish liquid is an all-natural soap formulated especially for baby's feeding items. We currently use Seventh Generation dish soap and are pretty happy with it, but it's really sudsy and takes a long time to rinse. Dapple claims to be low suds for easy rinsing, so I will definitely be giving it a try! The travel size Dapple dish liquid retails for $3.49.

The total value of our May box was $35.45. I'm very pleased with this month's box. I like that we got some favorite brands in addition to some things we've never tried before. Current subscribers, what did you think of the May box?

If you're not a subscriber and are interested in receiving Citrus Lane, signing up through my referral link Here will automatically take $10.00 off of your subscription at checkout.


  1. Thank you for introducing me to the idea of these boxes. They are perfect for busy moms with little time to shop. What fun to open a box with just right items - like Christmas without leaving the house, I appreciate your comments and insights - it's great to know what to expect before purchasing!

  2. Beware, they can be a bit addictive! But I'm happy to have introduced you :-).
