Kidbox is a new 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 Diesel, Limited Too, Roxy, 7 for all Mankind, Jessica Simpson, Reebok, Lucky Brand, and more. Currently, they carry sizes 4-7 & 8-16 for boys and 4-6x and 7-14 for girls. (Toddler sizes are coming soon!)
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. 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.
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!
Let’s see what’s in my Spring 2016 Kidbox!
Everything was shipped in a large white box with a colorful Kidbox logo on the side.
A peek inside. The items were divided into two sections and wrapped in pretty tissue paper.
A sealable zip pouch contained all of the printed info and a small pack of crayons was provided for kiddos to color/decorate the shipping box.
A detailed list of all the items was provided, along with retail prices and Kidbox prices for each one. The total retail cost of my whole box would have been $134, but I could purchase everything for just $98.
Two sheets of alphabet stickers were also included in the pouch. My kiddos are all about letters and stickers, so these were a nice little bonus.
If you choose to exchange or return some of the items, a large mailing bag and prepaid postage sticker are also provided.
Okay, onto the clothes!
7 For All Mankind Girls Gauze Top in Coral Blush ($32 retail, $20 Kidbox) – I LOVE this pretty pink shirt! It’s totally something I would have picked out myself and is my favorite piece in the box. Absolutely adorable and perfect for Spring.
7 For All Mankind Girls “Skinny” Jean in Clean White ($55 retail, $37 Kidbox) – First, the photo above looks wonky because the jeans were propped up to fit in the frame. Second, there’s no way I would ever pay $55 retail for a pair of kids jeans. 😉 My husband actually used to buy 7 jeans back in the day and would pay like $200/pair. Insane. That said, these are most definitely the only pair of 7 jeans my kiddos will be wearing for a long time.
Here’s Chloe modeling the outfit. You can’t tell, but the jeans were actually swimming on her and would fall down every time she moved. Ha! The girls are both in 3T’s still and all of the clothes we received were 4’s so they’ll have time to grow into ’em.
7 For All Mankind Girls Denim Shirt Dress ($55 retail, $33 Kidbox) – I’m usually not really into denim shirts/dresses (for me or my kids), but was surprised by how much I liked this once Evie put it on. Again, I’d never pay $55 retail for a kid’s denim dress, but I’m more than happy to get one in a subscription box. Also, it would only be $33 if you purchased it on its own (without buying the whole box).
Evie wasn’t too sure about the dress at first either, but once she had it on she was a fan. 🙂
Both of the girls/outfits together. Awww.
Limited Too Girls Short Sleeve Tee ($20 retail, $10 Kidbox) – A nice basic t-shirt for summertime. It’s always good to have some solid colored tees on hand.
Limited Too Girls Racer Back Tunic Tank ($20 retail, $10 Kidbox) – Another good solid piece to mix and match this summer. I like that it’s a tunic as opposed to just your standard tank top.
Limited Too Girls 3 Piece Capri Legging Set ($23 retail, $12 Kidbox) – We go through a TON of leggings in this house, so I’m always happy to get more. I like that these match perfectly with the tank and tee above.
Again, the clothes are a size up from what the girls currently wear, so they’re a big baggy. The capris almost look like regular-length leggings. 😉 (Also, I may have forgotten to take a few of the tags off. Oops!)
Roxy Hawaii Tank Top ($18 retail, $12 Kidbox) – This is the only item of the bunch that I wasn’t really thrilled about. The racerback had a weird twisty thing going on and it’s just not really our style. We’ll probably use it for jammies. 😉
Neither of the girls wanted to try it on, but Ev finally obliged. She wasn’t too happy about it though. Ha.
Also included in the box was this little “Surprise Ball” that unraveled to reveal a few trinkets inside. The girls loved pulling all of the paper apart to get to the prizes.
The prizes themselves weren’t too impressive, but the experience was fun.
Overall, I thought Kidbox did a great job at choosing items my girls (and I) would love. I was surprised to see so many higher end pieces and it was nice to get items I wouldn’t normally splurge on. I also love that they included little extras aside from the clothes — stickers, crayons, and the surprise ball. Not to mention the fact that they donate clothing to children in need when you choose to keep your full box. Oh, and free/easy returns & exchanges too! It doesn’t get much better that that. 🙂
