Citrus Lane Mystery Box- Elephant Skip Hop Review

*Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links*  

Citrus Lane: A monthly subscription box that contains 4 or more products for your child specific to their age and stage.
Price: $29 monthly
Mystery Box: $29 each

In addition to my Citrus Lane Skip Hop Zebra Mystery Box (review here), I also received the elephant one! I wanted to grab the rhino too, but I wasn't QUITE quick enough!  Again, this box was recommended for 12 months+, so I knew there was a high chance the products would be too young for J. However, they could make great gifts or be held onto for later on. 

Citrus Lane always uses the same cute box. I like the natural look of it with the simplicity of the yellow. Also, it says on the back it is Made With The Sun, manufactured using 90% solar power. So, I am getting cute products plus helping the environment? YES PLEASE!

I LOVE opening a full box! The first look was great, plenty of products.

Melissa & Doug Rainbow Stacker ($8.09): My family really likes Melissa & Doug toys. They are tough toys that will last through many children! This will likely go in the "gift-it" pile as we received the same one in the Zebra box

Green Tones Handle Cage Bell ($11.34): In the Zebra box, we received the Green Tones Triangle Castanet toy. J loved that toy, and loved this one as well. They are very well made. I REALLY like that they are not extremely loud ;) Just loud enough to entertain! 

Annie's Homegrown Organic Cheddar Bunnies ($1.00): More bunnies! This came in the Zebra box, as well. J likes them and they will get eaten.

Skip-Hop Elephant Plate/Bowl Set ($10.00): Super cute set. The elephant is adorable. We also have the zebras and a lunch box! 

Eco-Kids Modeling Dough ($3.63): This same dough, even color, came in our Zebra box. Maybe they ONLY are sending green? I'm not sure. But, J will use it! ee love

Cleo's Color Book ($6.29): Really cute, simple book. J may sit through one reading but it is really meant for a very young child. 

Pearhead Handprint Wall Art ($10.00): I could not find this exact set anywhere. I found some similar and would say it is valued at about $10.00. We received the same on in our Zebra Box. Again, we will use it, but probably not for handprints as suggested.  

Barefoot Books Bear on the Go First Puzzle ($12.95): Super cute puzzles. It contains 4 puzzles, 4 pieces each. We received this exact puzzle in the Zebra box. I wish they would have sent something else. But, we will send it to a grandparent's house, it will be good as an extra toy there. Something about toys at grandparent's houses are more fun anyways!

I paid $29.00 for the mystery box. The total value of the box is $63.30. Again, I did not include retail prices but the lowest price I could find online. If I had included retail price it would have a way higher value. Which is an AWESOME value. 

I really wish there were not SO many repeats in the boxes. I am glad I did not get the rhino box because it would mean even more repeats. There were 5 of the same items out of the 8 items. The other 3 were similar just a different style. Citrus Lane did not say there would not be any overlaps in boxes, but I wish they had. I will give the next mystery box a try and hope for a better turn out!
