Citrus Lane and Fab Kids August 2013 4 year old boy box review


YAY! My Citrus Lane box arrived this weekend! I’ve been so excited about this one, that I feel like I’ve checked the tracking a few 100 times! In case you’re new to the site, I signed up for a couple different subscription boxes. I wanted to see if any of these would work for our family, and I was also considering doing subscription boxes for potential Christmas/baby shower gift ideas. I think that instead of one gift, receiving a box every month for 3-6 months would be an awesome gift!

Citrus lane cost: $21-25/month, depending on which subscription you choose, including shipping
To save on your first box: Click here to bring the total down to $15.00.
I signed up when they had the buy one box, get one half off deal, bringing my total to $37.50

What’s in it: Full size care items for babies, toddlers, kids and moms.

First: I am already so incredibly impressed. We’re giving these to Auds on his birthday to open along with a couple other small things, but I am almost positive the Citrus lane boxes will be his favorite. Warning: This is a LONG post! Here’s box number 1:

  1. Hi! I got the August Citrus Lane box too but haven’t redeemed the Fabkids offer. Are you keeping it or cancelling? I’d like to redeem it but am nervous it will be difficult to cancel once I do. If you cancelled after you got the first outfit how hard was it?

    • Hi Erin! I did cancel, and It was very, very easy. Under “my account” there’s a tab that says “cancel” and you just hit submit, and receive an email confirming your cancelation. I loved the outfit we received, but $40 a month is a lot to spend for a mom who usually gets her outfits from rummage sales or consignment stores 😉 let me know if I can help you with anything else! I took a screen shot of it, if you want to email me, I can send it to you.
