kidpik is a new seasonal clothing subscription for girls. You can either choose to receive a one time trial box, 1 box per season (4 per year) or 2 boxes per season (8 per year). All the pieces are really well-made, and the designs are unique to kidpik.

kidpik is a new subscription box for girls, but the company itself has been around for decades. I think the easiest way to think of kidpik is that it is essentially Stitch Fix for girls. kidpik designs and produces all of its own apparel and accessories.
When you sign up, they ask for your girl’s name and use it to personalize the box for her. This box was styled for my 4 ½ year old daughter and I only provided her first initial “F” as her name. My daughter was especially excited this whole box was just for her!
When you first sign up, you fill out a style profile for your girl.
My daughter loves most colors so I selected most of these.
I was impressed how detailed this was.
kidpik gives you a number of clothing styles to choose from.
There are also athletic and modest options. They ask about how much sparkle your girl likes.
Ok, let’s see what we’ve got! (Note that my daughter is a girly girl. This box was styled based on our preferences so what you receive could be totally different.)
There are a few different bags.
Inside one of the bags was a gift of iron on patches that you can keep regardless of how many clothing items you decide on. Very thoughtful of kidpik. And sparkly. My daughter loves a good sparkle.
The next bag is reusable as a drawstring backpack.
The bag contained the Clari Braided Sandal – Price $17.50 (Keep All Price $12.25)
Love these! Perfect for spring and summer. They are super cute, versatile, and comfortable. I like that the bottoms have some grip to them. Everything in this box is excellent quality.
On to the next bag.
Glitter Braided Headwrap – Price $1.50 (Keep All Price $1.05)
More sparkle. Versatile color. I like it!
Here is the information card that comes with the subscription box.
The front is personalized with my daughter’s name again. Kids love to see their names on things.
The inside gives information on how kidpik works and a breakdown of all the items in the subscription box.
Now let’s look at what was underneath those bags.
Lace Cocoon – Price $15.50 (Keep All Price $10.85)
This is not exactly a sweater and not exactly a wrap. I am not sure how to best describe this, but it adds an extra layer of warmth and style to my daughter’s outfits and she really likes it.
Layering Tee – Price $0.00 (Keep All Price $0.00)
I bet you are thinking what I was thinking. Huh? That price can’t be right. The information card had a note saying as a special thank you, kidpik included an extra item that we could keep absolutely free. Amazing!
Sweet Crew – Price $16.50 (Keep All Price $11.55)
This shirt is made of that lightweight weave popular on shirts right now. Great for the weather warming up. It also has rhinestone and ribbon embellishments on it. This shirt says RUUM on it which is made by the company behind kidpik.
Tulle Skirt – Price $19.50 (Keep All Price $13.65)
My daughter loves this skirt! It has 2 layers of tulle and a lining underneath.
Floral Princess Seam Dress – Price $12.50 (Keep All Price $8.75)
This is a fun dress to spin in! My daughter loves the flower pattern, too.
The kidpik box came with a coloring sheet.
Here she is coloring it wearing the Sweet Crew shirt.
Another part of the kidpik subscription box that I liked is their donation option.
If you decide to keep the whole box, you get a 30% discount which is like getting 1 or 2 items for free. The kidpik box includes a pre-paid shipping bag and a give-back sticker.
We like to encourage our kids to give back whenever possible and, so far, they always love to do this.
My daughter wrote her name and the clothing size on the sticker.
We chose to donate the Layering Tee we had received as an additional thank you from kidpik. Pay it forward.
Ok, now for some pictures of the outfits on!
I love that everything in the box was a cohesive collection that works well together as mix-and-match pieces. So versatile!
Value: The grand total price for all the items in the box is $90.16 if we purchase everything separately. Considering the quality of the items, the fact that the styling service, shipping to us and any return shipping is thrown in, the time I saved not having to go out looking for these items, not to mention the free gift and extra item, I think that is a more than fair price.
If, for some reason, you don’t like the subscription box, you have one week to return it and pay nothing. Amazing.
Plus, if you keep the whole box, which we will probably always do especially since everything works so well together, you get the 30% discount so the price would be $63.11 total. I call that a deal!
Verdict: We love kidpik so far and are very excited to see what they send next! The quality is great and my daughter loves wearing her new clothes. If you are on the fence about trying this one, give it shot.
