Citrus Lane September 2013: 5-yr-old Boy

We got our Citrus Lane box today and it was a fun one. Even had something for me!

The add-on this time was an Aden + Anais blanket. We used the muslin wraps A LOT when Noodlebug was a baby. I tell people all the time that I continue to find uses for those blankets even though he is 5 now.  This time, I ordered a Dream Blanket as an add-on.  Noodlebug is quite the aesthete and loves comfort.  He immediately wrapped up in his new blanket:

We have another Dream Blanket for the car that is perfect for cold Winter mornings.  I was hoping this one could be for the other car but I'm not sure he will give it up. This blanket was about $31.  The retail price is usually about $49.95.

Here is a look at the other goodies:

1. We always love getting books in our boxes!  One of the hints this month was a Charley Harper picture and I was hoping our book would feature Charley Harper but this one featuring Alexander Girard is also charming.  Retail price: $16.95

2. Two Bamboo Cars from Hape Toys --We have had many HAPE toys over the years. I love their sustainable focus and these cars will be fun.  Retail price: $6.99 each

3. 3.4 oz Peaceful Bubble from Episencial--We are HUGE Episencial fans and were out of bubbles so this came at the perfect time!!!  Retail Price: approx $1.50

4. Something for mom!  Nail color from JULEP in a fun Fall color.  Retail Price: $14.00

Approximate value of box: $46.43

I thought this box had some really fun items in it and I can't wait to try the nail color.We are so enjoying Citrus Lane and I hope they start offering boxes for older children!

Cute! I wonder what they would send if you chose the "gender neutral" option?
