With the holidays and the year now coming to an end, the kids have been getting restless. School has yet to begin again and, most days, it is too cold for lengthy outdoor play. We’ve been making the rounds through our collection of board games, teaching the little ones new card games, working through learning books, coloring like crazy, and then some. I am quite creative on my own so, thankfully, I’m able to come up with a good amount of ideas to keep us busy. However, we all run out of ideas at some point. Now, I’m not one for showering my kids with unnecessary toys whenever they might ask but I do pick up the occasional little things here and there. Then again, when I do pick up small goodies for them, I try to assure that these will be lasting items that are beneficial to them. With a plethora of children’s products readily available, though, finding the best of the best for our little ones isn’t always an easy task. Thankfully, to save us all our sanity, Citrus Lane is here to help.
Citrus Lane is a wonderful little company that I came across a while back but, up until now, have yet to give them a try. Through Citrus Lane, users can set up a monthly, 3-month, or 6-month subscription that delivers all of the best children’s products directly to your front door. Every single box caters completely to your little one’s needs based on their age and is sure to put a smile on their face instantaneously.
This box contained the following:
- A single issue of Ladybug the Magazine for Young Children along with a free 3-month digital subscription bonus
- A Cloud B Dreamz-to-Go Octo nightlight
- A child’s harmonica
- A bag of Bops Sea Salt Potato Chips, an organic snack
This particular box was custom designed for the kindergarten age group and worked out wonderfully for both of our little ones. While Citrus Lane offers custom boxes for newborns through children up to 5-years-old, I found this particular box to be the perfect for, both, our oldest and youngest. The magazine was a huge hit with our big guy and he dove right into it. Between its intriguing content and its fun puzzles throughout, we had a blast enjoying it together.
Our youngest, on the other hand, took claim of the nightlight almost instantaneously. We flipped all of the light switches, pulled down the shades, and closed all of the curtains so that we could put it to the test right then and then… in broad daylight. Even then, we were able to see the magical images that appeared on our ceiling. With a choice of either blue or green, this little light was ideal for our boys.
Underneath our new starry night sky, we cuddled up and sat by our imaginary campfire (better known as the fireplace). Now, of course, with any campfire, you need good music. The harmonica that was included in our box was a great addition to our day (or night?) of play.
After an attempt to play a number of fun children’s songs that turned into a spit-filled mess, we opted for a good snack time break. At the end of the day I was absolutely overjoyed with how much fun came out of one tiny box. Citrus Lane is, surely, one of my absolute favorite companies for kids. And now, thanks to their outstanding subscription service, I no longer have to search endlessly for the best products. They do all of the searching and finding and you get to bask in the greatness. Delivered as frequently as you wish, Citrus Lane boxes make for an exciting fun-filled surprise for all of those “just because” reasons or for celebratory gifts as well!
The Citrus Lane boxes full of fun can be purchased directly through their website and are available in monthly, 3-month, and 6-month subscription plans. Prices start as low as $21 per box.
