Citrus Lane is a Bay Area company, though we now live in Bend, Ore, I think Citrus Lane is a hit! 🙂
Thank you for joining me here, at my new Mama Bendia blog, where I’ll provide product reviews, talk mama-ness, things to do in Central Oregon, baby-friendly restaurants, and general musings!
So, upon signing up for Citrus Lane, we provided age and gender of our little and now receive a wonderful box of age-appropriate goodies every month!
Here’s a look inside Citrus Lane’s April 2014 box for an 18mth-ish old boy :
~ Race Car!! from Green Toys :
This mama loves racing and loves cars! It was my mission to get my little guy ‘into’ cars… he now vroom vrooms around the house with various toys… cars included! So, when I saw this Race Car in the box, even I got all giddy! 🙂
If you are unfamiliar with Green Toys… go check them out!
They are a Bay Area company making toys, in the USA, out of 100% recycled Milk Jugs!
This Race car is the cutest thing… with a the #2 Recycling Logo right on it’s hood!
We received the Blue car, but make no qualms about it, Green Toys are equal for boys and girls… blue, red, and pink race cars… as well as Recycling Trucks, Trains, etc… serious fun for all!
~ Snack Bowls from Green Eats (aka : Green Toys) :
We already have a few Green Toys eatery items from the Tea Set I bought awhile ago. These Snack Bowls are a perfect addition! I can set Bean up with a bowl of blueberries and banana bread and he’s set, munching along while playing in his little Melissa & Doug kitchen!
The super awesome thing is these are, also, made in the USA from 100% recycled plastic milk jugs.
They are Melamine-, BPA-, PVC-, and Phthalate-free! AND dishwasher safe… So I can keep Bean safe and clean with these great Green Eats!
~ Singalong Book & CD Set from Barefoot Books :
We’ve received a few board books from Barefoot in past boxes and they’ve been great… this is the first singalong book! I know their singalong books are fun, because we fell in love with “A Hold in the Bottom of the Sea” when we used to frequent The Reading Bug’s Story Time in the Bay Area’s cute peninsula town of San Carlos!
In our box this month we received, “The Animal Boogie” set… it contains a book and enhanced CD which features the song and an animated video.
I look forward to moving into our new home where Bean will have his own room to play and a little CD player for that room, so that we can boogie on down with him and the animals!!
~ A Sample of Mrs. Meyer’s Dish Soap :
In Lemon Verbena, my favorite scent of theirs! Oh, Wait, I just looked at their site.. they have so many more scents out now!! Yum! Might have to re-evaluate this… Radish!?!? That’s sounds interesting!
~ A free Gift Card from Treat :
A personalized gift card with my own photos and sayings… sent to the person of my choice!
If I had purchased all these items individually… I’d have spent about $30, not including shipping & tax.
We, also, received great coupon codes for almost every company/item represented in the box!
We are very happy with this 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 my guys (hubs and boy) open the Citrus Lane box every month!
Look forward to May… Mama’s Month! 🙂
