We received Bean’s August Citrus Lane box and it got a little wordy… so we just added water! Wanna Try it out! Get 50% off your First Box here! Thank you for joining me here, on my Mama Bendia blog, where I’ll provide product reviews, talk mama-ness, things to do in Central Oregon, baby-friendly restaurants, and general musings! Upon signing up for Citrus Lane, we provided age and gender of our little guy and receive a wonderful box of age-appropriate goodies every month! Here’s a look inside Citrus Lane’s August 2014 box for a 22mth-ish old boy : ~ Alphabet Flash Cards by Petit Collage : Bean is savoring the ABCs… which I sing and sign in ASL (Thanks Touch Blue Sky Baby Sign Language Classes!)! He knows quite a few letters and enjoys ‘practicing’ the signs with me. So, I was thrilled to see these Alphabet cards in his box this month! These will make a super cute addition to our ABC repertoire! There are a number of Alphabet themes to choose from, and we happened to get Animals! Yay! We love animals in our house! We’ve received other items from Petit Collage… just as cute! August 2014 Citrus Lane (6) ~Tea for Two by Green Toys : While the Tea for Two set was created exclusively for Citrus Lane subscribers, Green Toys has a hit on their hands no matter the size of toy! We have lots of Green Toys in our home, including the full size Tea Set. What I liked was that this little set came in a mesh baggie with a little tea kettle, two tea cups, and two saucers… adorbs! And a perfect addition to the Tea Set with Spoons, Creamer, and Sugar Bowl that we already have. Bean was very happy to open this box while lunching in one of our favorite restaurants… he took a spot of … Water, in his! 😉 August 2014 Citrus Lane (5) ~ Reusable Cool It Buddy from Me4Kidz : Me4Kidz is a great little company that makes adorable first aid items for kiddos. We received their MediBuddy first aid kit in a previous Citrus Lane box! I love using little cooled packs on Bean’s ouchies and Bean loves them too. So, this was a great addition to our freezer! August 2014 Citrus Lane (2) ~ Language Video Digital Download from Little Pim : My mom is obsessed with Little Pim for the kiddos… she got us all a Spanish set last Holiday Season. I wasn’t so stoked and Bean was on to other things. I do want him to learn as much as possible and another language is a great idea… but I’m so into ASL (as mentioned above, hooked on it via Touch Blue Sky) and Bean enjoys the Signing Time with Alex and Leah videos so much, that I haven’t pushed another spoken language on him. Though I do like the Little Pim offers downloads AND they have Mandarin Chinese! August 2014 Citrus Lane (7) We, also, received a code to try out Care.com! If I had purchased all these items individually… I’d have easily spent about $35, not including shipping & tax. We, also, received great coupon codes for almost every company/item represented in the box! We opt for a yearly membership, so we pay just about $16/mth… but you can go a month at time for just $29 AND Get a whopping 50% off your very one 1st box here! It’s so fun watching our little guy open the Citrus Lane box every month! August 2014 Citrus Lane (1)
