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!

When we signed up for Citrus Lane, we provided age and gender of our little guy and, now, receive a wonderful box of age-appropriate goodies every month!

Here’s a look inside Citrus Lane’s December 2014 box for about a 2 year old boy :

I love how Citrus Lane sends ‘decorated’ boxes…this month we received a snowflake box!

~ Stockpot & Utensils by Green Toys :
We are just in love with all Green Toys goodies we get from Citrus Lane and from Green Toys themselves!
This awesome Stockpot was no exception!! Bean immediately took it to his little Melissa & Doug Kitchen and started making me soup! I like to think, since he sees me making soup all the time (and cooking in general) that he’s learned by osmosis! 🙂
This is the cutest ‘little chef’ set! Colors made exclusively for Citrus Lane, but available at Green Toys site in other colors/sets!

~ Alphabet Nesting Blocks from Melissa & Doug :
Another great item in our December box, a cool learning toy…just like Melissa & Doug does so well!
ABC Stacking and Nesting Blocks!
Each block has a set of letters from A-Z with corresponding pictures for each letter!
Bean started telling me his ABC’s as soon as he saw these!

~ a Little Book from Chronicle Books :
Chronicle Books has this cute little series of ‘little books’…I had an opportunity to decide which little book we would get, but I decided to be surprised! We received “Little Pea” a book about eating. This was, also, a pre-release of the book!
In this collection is “Little Oink” and “Little Hoot” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal.
This book was great for us to add to our carry-on for our holiday flight out of state!

~ Green Apple Age Defy Moisturizer by Juice Beauty :
AND…a little something for mama!
I admit I love getting goodies in my boy’s Citrus Lane box! I, actually, wish there could be stuff for daddy too!
I’ve received Juice Beauty items before, and have used them in the past, and I really like them. I really like this nicely moisturizing Green Apple moisturizer! I greatly enjoy that this was a travel size, because, of course, it was perfect to take along on our out of state holiday travel, an SPF would have been useful, but I was stoked to have this one!

If I had purchased these items individually, I would have easily spent more than $50, not including shipping (no tax in Oregon). We, also, received great coupon codes for almost every company/item represented in the box! We opt for a yearly membership, so we pay about $16/mth…

but boxes can be ordered for a month at time for just $29 AND

It’s so fun watching our little guy open the Citrus Lane box every month!
Can’t wait for 2015!
Happy Holidays!
