Product Review: November Citrus Lane

November box is here!

Every month, Charlie gets a surprise in the mail - a box of toys and neat stuff picked out just for him! Citrus Lane hand picks fun, high quality products, most of which you've probably never heard of, and sends them to your door. Your box, which arrives with free shipping, is put together based on your child's age and the gender you choose when you subscribe (boy, girl, gender neutral).

Charlie wouldn't give up the Hamburger Stacker toy for my picture...

 In our box this month...

Doodle Pad & Bees Wax Crayons by Faber-Castell
Maker of serious art supplies, Faber-Castell's kid friendly supplies are just as high quality. Charlie loves any and all crayons, but these are some of the nicest I've ever seen - no lie. They are thick and high quality and truly seem Charlie proof. With angled sides, they don't roll off the table and get lost, which is another plus. My favorite part is how vibrant they are. They are bright as if they were pastels, but they draw like crayons. Very cool!

Insulated Lunch Bag by Bumkins
We love Bumkins bibs, so I was excited to try out one of their lunch bags. Its insulated and, more importantly, wipes clean. It is also lead, PVC, BPA, Phthalate, and vinyl free which is good for kids and the environment. Its a great size and fits all of Charlie's little bento boxes with room to spare.

Hamburger Stacker by Green Toys
Now, this toy is hilarious. It is a seven piece puzzle stacking toy shaped as a hamburger! How random is that? Charlie loves this thing - stacking and restacking it, offering us a bite of "burbur" in between. We already own the Green Toys dump truck, so we're familiar with the quality and sustainability of their toys. This company is fantastic - not only are all of their toys made in the USA, very affordable, and dishwasher safe, but they are all completely recyclable and made of #2 plastic.

Organicasaurus Snacks by Good Boy Organics
Crunchy cheese snacks shaped like dinosaurs? A little kid dream! Charlie really enjoyed this snack and it was nice knowing it healthier than some of the crap junk food out there. I love when healthy food is yummy!

  1. Ours hasn't arrived yet. I'm guessing it will be about the same since they are only a few months apart. I'll have to avoid reading these if I want a surprise, but that box looks awesome! (I couldn't resist reading this post since we are waiting on the very first box!)

    1. I'm excited for Ben to get his box! I tried waiting until the boxes should have been delivered to post, but some are still on their way. I'm tellin' ya - Charlie loves these things every month. I'm sure Ben will too!

    2. Yay! It finally arrived! You got the burger, we got a sandwich. Otherwise all the same. I figured since they are so close in age it would be! But Ben was so excited to get mail tonight. Love it!
