Ethan’s First KidBox – A review

One day vis a vie email, a pal of mine and I thought “we should start a kid subscription box.” We were ranting about Stitch Fix boxes gone woefully wrong, contemplating whether to sign up our husbands for the mens box and wishing there was something similar for kids. Then I found KidBox.

With KidBox, it’s free to sign up, and you only pay for what you buy. Certainly not too shabby of a deal to start.

A couple of weeks after I signed up and filled out our style profile, I got my box with six pieces all curated for Little Man based on what I put in his mini style-profile. The box itself was super fun to open with lots of colors, and some stickers for little man to play with.

But once I saw the pieces, to say it was a huge bummer would be an understatement.

Similar to Stitch Fix, you fill out a style profile that asks about your child’s style. I compared my child’s style to the Gap and JCrew – classic, comfy and preppy – and received joggers and a bomber jacket? Something feels like it’s not connected. But, then this seems like a new program and maybe their selection is limited.

The pieces (L to R, Top to Bottom) 

Le Top Sports Jersey $21 (originally $42)
Le Top Woven Plaid Shirt $24 (originally $48)
Le Top French Terry Varsity Jacket $35 (originally $60)
LRG Stylent Jean $24 (originally $36)
Reebok Tod Mesh Jogger $24 (originally $30)
Penguin Twill Pant $20 (originally $38)

So the pieces, while all were really nice quality, they weren’t so much nicer than our usual Carters/Baby Gap/Old Navy that I was willing to pay Boden-like prices ($24 for a plaid shirt!?! LOLOLOL). Not to mention, little man is a little prepster like his daddy. Not a…well, I don’t even know what type of style that all is.

But, given that there were 7 days (pro!) to try the stuff out, no charge (unlike stitch fix! SUPER PRO! No obligation FTW!)  except for what you keep, I felt okay trying it out and, I’ll probably try it again in the spring just to see what we get. It’s fun to get mail like this and the pros certainly don’t hurt.

Feel free to try it (it’s free!) AND if you use my referral link, you get $25 towards your first purchase! Win win right?

 

Have you tried a subscription box for your kiddos? What was your experience like?
