Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription box for babies and young children. Every month the company sends three child-related products, plus one gift for mom or for the family. The cost depends on how many boxes you purchase at once, and what kind of discount codes you use. For example, the cost is normally $29 for one month, $24 for a month with 3 month plan, $21 a month with 6 month plan. You can currently use the code TAKE20OFF for a $20 discount on your first box. Hint: never pay $29 for one box - you can always find a discount code. If you can manage 50% off every box, it is very much worth it. From what I can tell the quality of the products is consistently high.

Here is a look at C's first box, from February 2014, to give you an idea of what comes inside. The boxes can vary depending on the age and gender of your child.
In this box we received:
Book: Starlight Sailor by James Mayhew and Jackie Morris ($15)
Plate: Ooogaa Silicone Bowl ($9)
Toy: 10 Boone Bath Tub Appliques ($11)
Mom: Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Hand Cream ($12)
I looked up the approximate prices of the products on Amazon. So, after the 50% off discount, I paid $14.50 for $47 worth of products. That seems worth it to me. The book is beautifully illustrated, the bowl is microwave and dishwasher safe and the lotion smells like a fresh, green apple.
The foam bath tub appliques turned out to be our favorite part of this box. I like the design of the sea animals and the colors are chic. They stick to the tiles when wet and I rearrange them every time I take a shower. They even stick to C when she gets a bath. I have fun sticking them on her belly or her head.
The box is also great as a toy on its own, and to use again to wrap and mail gifts to the other kids in our life!
