Have you heard of Kidbox? It’s another one of the many subscription services you can get these days, and this one is all about getting great clothes for your kids! It is the second company I’ve tried that advertises this product. The first was Rockets of Awesome, but I took one look at the prices and knew I wouldn’t keep even one thing in the box. I did still look at all of the pieces, and was shocked to find the box full of mostly very thin t-shirts and very generic clothes. There was ONE puffy vest in Joshua’s box that I loved, but it was $36 and we really didn’t need it.
After my experience with Rockets of Awesome, I really wasn’t sure I’d try another of these children’s clothing subscriptions, but…… both of these truly are FREE to try! Unlike Stitchfix, the adult version of these, there is no stylist fee or anything. You get the box, decide what to keep, and send the rest back. If you drop the entire box back in the mail (free shipping both ways) then you will never be charged a penny!
So when I discovered Kidbox I figured I had nothing to lose. And I’m so glad I gave them a chance. It was a drastically different experience than Rockets of Awesome!
Here are a few observations upon opening the box:
- The box is like a coloring book! Nathanael’s box even came with crayons to color it in. The crayons were left out of Joshua’s box, but I assume they do that on purpose because he is under two. There were also STICKERS, which Nathanael LOVED!
- The clothes are much better quality than were ROA’s. Everything was made by a name brand that I recognized as good quality.
- They paid attention to the style profile I filled out online and the clothes were catered to my preferences for each boy.
- The cost per item wasn’t too high to start with (ranging from $12-$20), but if I keep the entire box, the cost per item goes WAY down to just under $11 per item. (I kept the entire box!)
Here’s a peak at some of the clothes that came in their boxes:
I’m in LOVE with that jacket! AND the awesome orange sweater outfit that came with a matching button-up and jeans. My boys looked so cute at church last week, wearing their new Kidbox clothes!
Nathanael didn’t enjoy the trying on process, but I got pics of Joshua in lots of his, and had so much fun dressing him up!
All in all, I’d say that Kidbox is lots of fun! The only down-side is that once you sign up, you will keep receiving boxes 4 times per year. While that could be helpful, I’m not sure that I’ll spend that much on their clothes more than once a year. Still, all I have to do is drop it back in the mail if I don’t want it, and a simple email will stop the automatic shipments. I do wish, though, that there was an easy button on the account page that would let me either schedule a one-time box, or set up automatic shipments on MY schedule. (For the record, Rockets of Awesome is set up the exact same way.)
So what do YOU think? Have you tried any of these subscription-type things? Let me know which ones you love, or which ones you’ve been wanting to try!
