Kidbox is a quarterly subscription box that sends you brand name kid’s clothing items at a fraction of the retail price.
Each box will consist of 6 to 7 seasonal clothing items, all based on your child’s individual style profile. Brands can include Puma, Jessica Simpson, Splendid, Diesel, Limited Too, Roxy, 7 for all Mankind, Reebok, Lucky Brand, and more. They currently carry sizes 0-24 months for infants/babies, 2T-14 for girls, and 2T-16 for boys.
Disclosure: I received this box for review purposes. I was not compensated in any way. All opinions are my own. Post may contain affiliate and/or referral links.
Once you receive your box, you’ll choose which of the items you’d like to keep. If you decide to keep the whole box you’ll pay just $98 total ($68 for babies). Otherwise, you can send back your unwanted items for exchange/return at no cost to you and pay only for the items you choose. All items are offered at prices below retail, so no matter how many pieces you choose to keep, you’ll be getting a great deal. Also, there is NO styling fee for your boxes – you don’t pay anything until your 7-day home try-on period is up!
Kidbox’s ultimate goal is to empower children to give. For every full box you keep, Kidbox donates a new outfit to a child in a needy family. Win/win!
For a limited time, you can get $10 OFF a full purchase of your first Kidbox with coupon code “ROSEBUDS“!
Let’s see what’s in my Fall 2018 Kidbox!
Everything was shipped in a large brown box with a white Kidbox logo on the side.
The items were divided into two sections and wrapped in pretty tissue paper.
A resealable zip pouch contained the packing slip and colorful stickers for your child.
Alphabet sticker sheet!
A detailed list of all our items was provided, along with photos, retail prices and Kidbox prices for each one. The total retail cost of my whole box would have been $257.99, but I could purchase everything for just $98!
If you choose to exchange or return some of the items, a large mailing bag and prepaid postage sticker are also provided. (Size exchanges are free!)
Kidbox also included the latest copy of their in-house publication — “The Scribble”. It featured a look at trendy styles for winter, ways for kids to give back, DIY gifts, recipes, and more.
In the spirit of giving, Kidbox even included a few sheets of custom wrapping paper to encourage you to wrap a gift for someone in need this coming holiday season. 🙂
Onto the clothes!
Masala Baby Girls Metallic Gypsy Dress ($64 Retail/$32 Kidbox)
When I filled out the style survey for my daughter, I noted that she LOVES dresses. Needless to say, she was absolutely smitten with this pretty white & gold gypsy dress from Masala Baby. It features a gold metallic crochet trim with tiny gold sparkles throughout the entire piece. It’s made in India and would have been our favorite item in the box — if it weren’t for the glitter fallout. Unfortunately, it sheds like crazy and a trail of glitter followed my daughter wherever she went. I tried shaking it out, but it was like a relentless snow storm that wouldn’t stop. I’m going to try washing it (by hand) to see if it helps. Fingers crossed!
The fit was absolutely perfect so I really hope we can get the glitter under control!
Samara Girls Stripe Sweater ($59.99 Retail/$45 Kidbox)
This 60% cotton/40% acrylic sweater will be great for the upcoming colder months. It’s ivory in color with black stripes and a small pink heart for an extra girly touch. I was a little worried that the sleeves wouldn’t be long enough, but they were just right.
Flapdoodles Girls Unicorn Print Leggings ($20 Retail/$15 Kidbox)
(Sold as 2-pack with pink leggings shown later)
We can never have too many leggings! These ones from Flapdoodles feature a solid black background with an allover silver/metallic unicorn print. Fun!
The sweater paired nicely with the leggings and both had a great fit. My girls are tall and rather skinny (they take after my husband), but both pieces fit comfortably without looking too loose/baggy.
Design History Girls Crushed Velour Skirt ($30 Retail, $22 Kidbox)
Of all the items we received, this was the only one that didn’t fit well. The size was right (5), but my kiddos are so skinny that we sometimes have trouble with certain waistlines being too loose. Not a big deal, since we can just store it away until they get more meat on their bones. 😉
Here it is paired with the outfit above.
Miki B Girls Cheetah Print Boatneck ($28 Retail, $21 Kidbox)
I normally don’t buy animal prints for my kids, but since this is a more subtle black & white pattern (NOT brown leopard print) I’ll give it a pass. 😉 Plus, the boatneck detail is a cute touch.
Flapdoodles Girls Light Pink Leggings ($20 Retail/$15 Kidbox)
(Sold as 2-pack with unicorn leggings shown above)
More leggings! These ones seemed a bit on the thinner side, so we may have to save them for spring. Still happy to add another pair to our collection though!
Chloe loves kitties and highly approved of her new shirt. 😉
Lavender Girl’s 3/4 Sleeve Dress w/Roses ($56 Retail/$42 Kidbox)
I requested long-sleeved items, so I was kinda bummed to see this 3/4 sleeve dress… However, my girls both LOVED it, so I’ll let it slide. 😉 The rose details on either side of the waist are an ideal accent for my “little rosebuds”.
The fit was slightly loose, but should be perfect come springtime.
My daughter was SO excited about all of the items Kidbox chose for her this quarter. Both of the dresses were her favorites, but she was quick to say that she “loved ALL of it”. My personal favorite would have been the Masala Baby dress, if not for the dang glitter fallout. (I even sent the company an email to see how to reduce the “shedding”.) Overall, Kidbox did a great job selecting stylish items my daughter could wear throughout the fall and winter seasons. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can get $10 OFF a full purchase of your first Kidbox with coupon code “ROSEBUDS“!
Fall 2018 Kidbox Review
Such a great subscription box for adding to your child’s wardrobe without having to leave the house. They do a nice job with curation and all of the pieces seem to be of high quality. Plus, you get them at below retail and a portion of your purchase goes to help children in need. 🙂
