The theme of January seems to be “catching up on December!” It’s been awhile, but I’d still like to share what we got in our December box from Citrus Lane and how it went over with the little one. Although I don’t get the Citrus Lane boxes every month, I enjoy getting them from time to time and specifically ordered the December box because last year’s box was so great.
This year, Citrus Lane included the Melissa and Doug Rainbow Stacker ($8.27 at Amazon), a Handprint Art Kit from Pearhead (~$14.95 at Pearhead), Snuggly Lotion from Episencial ($8.50 at Amazon), and the book “I Took the Moon for a Walk” from Barefoot Books ($7.19 at Amazon).
The stacker was perfect! I love wooden toys, and had been thinking Alexis might like a stacker, but hadn’t gotten around to getting one for her. (I can’t buy her all the toys, can I?) I used it as a stocking stuffer and Alexis loves it.
The book, “I Took the Moon for a Walk,” also became a Christmas present. It’s a lovely book with adorable illustrations, and quickly entered Alexis’ regular rotation. She calls it “Moon,” and loves looking through it. Two for two, Citrus Lane.
The lotion came in a smaller size than pictured, although it still felt like a large tube of lotion. I just can’t find the size I received for sale online. It smells great and will definitely be useful around here, where the winter cold is drying out everyone’s skin.
The handprint kit from Pearhead is cute, and definitely something we will do, but haven’t gotten around to yet. It’s impossible to find this specific kit for sale online, though. All the available kits force you to choose between pink and blue, and I’m glad the one in the box does not. That said, two handprints on a plain white canvas seems a little boring, and I think we’re going to have to think outside the box to make this art kit more… arty.
All in all, I was happy with this box. While it only had 4 items, each one was quite nice and will be put to use, which is what is really important.
