Citrus Lane 24 Month Old Box January 2014




It's January 2014! A new year with filled with new things but one thing remains constant at Growing Up Madison. Our subscription to Citrus Lane! We've been in love with Citrus Lane since we first started our subscription with them. While I admit that some months we aren't too thrilled with what we received, overall the service has been top notch and it's always great getting a box filled with surprises every month. I know these boxes by sight and usually can't wait to get them open. For those who still don't know what Citrus Lane is, it's a monthly subscription box service for newborns up to age 5. The boxes are tailored to your child's age and every month it shows up on your doorstep filled with lovely goodies, sometimes all for me, or sometimes there may be something in there for mommy as well. If you're interested in reading what we got in our box last month you can read all about it in our December Citrus Lane box post.




Our January box came in the same box we received last month. It was covered in snowflakes and to be honest I love when Citrus Lane decorates their box. They look so much better than the yellow plain ones that I'm sure they'll go back to once the season changes. I'm all about pretty! 




Upon opening my box I saw a bright bumblebee bag and couldn't wait to get to it. The color was so eye catching. I'm sure you're wondering what I got right? Well without further ado let me get right into it. As usual Citrus Lane sends a card that describes what I got making my job easy to tell you as well. 

Our card read:
Welcome to the New Year! Are you growing tired of the cold weather yet? We thought you might be, so we decided to send you items that will remind you that spring is right around the corner! We've included a beautiful shape sorter from Plan Toys, and one of the most loved items by Citrus Lane moms, a Lunchie from Skip Hop, along with a snack and something to help out with the occasional tummy upset. We're super excited about what we have planned for you and your little one in 2014 ... stay tuned. Happy New Year! 

Shape Sorter from Plan Toys - $14.99




We love this uniquely designed shape sorter from Plan Toys. Unlike other shape sorters, each of the pieces is attached with a sturdy cord so they won't get lost. It also makes a great grab-and-go item to keep your little one entertained while out and about. In addition to learning about shapes and colors, this toy helps children practice important developmental milestones like improving fine motor and problem solving skills.   
I actually liked this. This was certainly unique no doubt about it. I have had other shape sorters from Fisher Price but I always end up losing parts of them. Having them attached where they can never get lost is great for me.  


Lunchie from Skip Hop - $14.00


Not only is the Lunchie adorable, it's also the perfect size for a first lunchbox. Each has an iconic zoo animal face and a matching zipper. The insulated wipe-clean interior is roomy while the mesh pocket accommodates small utensils and an icepack. We like that it has soft sides that give a little so you can pack odd-shaped containers as well as a top handle that can be clipped onto a diaper bag or backpack.   Use code CLJAN14  for 20% off any purchase of $30 or more at www.skiphop.com thru 01/31/14.  

I am a big fan of Skip Hop, actually there is an upcoming review for one of their products that I just love. This Lunchie is totally adorable and it's perfect for those trips to the park. It can fit a diaper, wipes and a quick snack. Being insulated means that it will be able to keep my water or juice cold as well. Can't wait to use it.  

Fruit Pouch from Peter Rabbit Organics- $1.50




Who said pouches are for babies? Perfect for all ages, this 100% organic fruit pouch by Peter Rabbit Organics is a delicious and nutritious grab-and-go snack option that doesn't contain any artificial ingredients or preservatives. Enjoy them straight from the squeezable pouch or squirt onto oatmeal or cereal. Throw an extra one in your diaper bag or in the car for a quick pick-me-up for you too! 
Ok I don't think I have to tell you that I loved this. I love Peter Rabbit Organics Pouches. They are absolutely delicious. They are one of my go to brand of pouches including Happy Family. The fact that the ingredients on the front is what is actually in there with nothing else added makes them the perfect snack for everyone! 


Upset Tummy & Nausea Relief from Mommy's Bliss - $9.99



It can be tough to figure out what to do when your little one complains of an upset tummy. Mommy's Bliss Upset Tummy & Nausea Relief comes in convenient; single does packets to help ease nausea, stomachache, indigestion, or flu. This herbal supplement contains only all-natural ingredients so it's safe, effective and works in minutes. Free from gluten, dairy, soy and sugar, so it's 100% vegetarian and vegan.  


I don't usually get sick and it's usually with a temperature when I do. I've never had a tummy ache or the flu and I hope I never do. Just in case I do it's nice to know that this is in my medicine cabinet waiting for me. All natural ingredients is one of the things that mommy look for in a product and I'm happy that this is one of those product. 



Once again another fun box from Citrus Lane. Did you know that I actually said a full sentence when mommy tried helping me with that shape sorter? Mommy thinks that she's trying to help but I like doing things on my own, so when mommy tried taking it away to show me how it's done, I took it back and said "you're annoying!". I guess mommy understood because she stopped "annoying" me. Love my Citrus Lane box this month! 

Citrus Lane boxes are normally $25 including shipping but if you join today using my link you get $10 off your first box. I can't wait to see what the New Year is going to bring us from Citrus Lane.
