If you aren’t familiar with Citrus Lane, it is a monthly subscription box service geared toward kids ages 0-5. The items you receive are specifically selected for your child’s gender and age group. It costs $25/month, but if you sign up through my link here you will receive $10 off your first month! (And I will receive $10 off my next box too. So, thanks in advance if you click and order!)

I have mixed feelings about the March Citrus Lane box that we received, but overall I was pretty impressed. Little Man turned 15 months old in March, and so he received the 16 month old boy March box. Here is what was inside:

Slumber Friends Plush Pillow from Cloud B, $21.95

This is a great product! I love how it smells like lavender and how it can be both a pillow and a stuffed animal. Little Man didn’t show very much interest in this, but he has given it a few hugs now and then. He had better start liking it soon or Mommy might steal it for herself! This was by far the best item in the box, and what mad this month’s box worthwhile for us.

Puzzle Wheel from Mudpuppy, $9.99

This will be a nice toy to play with once Little Man stops putting everything in his mouth. He would melt the cardboard pieces away if I let him play with it now. So, it is safely tucked away downstairs in my gift pile and will probably make its way into his birthday or Christmas gifts.

Jungle Tattoos from Wee Gallery, $5.00

This is an absolute miss for us. I don’t understand giving a baby a temporary tattoo. Maybe he will be allowed to have these when he is eleven years old, if they last that long.

NurturMe food packets, ~$2.00

I love the idea of this product. They are dried fruits and veggies to mix into your kid’s food. I haven’t used these yet, but I am excited to try mixing one into our next batch of mac & cheese. We received one squash packet and one apple packet.

$20 coupon code from JustFab

Another miss. To use this you have to purchase shoes costing $39.95, and I have no plans to do so. This just isn’t my thing.

All in all, $38.90 total, for a $25 box. This doesn’t include the $20 Just Fab coupon in the price total.

Not bad. I like the Cloud B pillow, and the puzzle will be nice in a few months.
