Opening this box was so much fun for my son. The box itself has designs inside and is meant to be colored with the included crayons. There was a welcome booklet personalized with my son’s name and simple directions for returning unwanted items or exchanging for alternate sizes. There were sheets of stickers and a reusable slide pouch. There was also a paper strip ball that you unwind and two small toys were hidden in the middle. All these extras were a lot of fun!
Each box comes with a price sheet listing each item of clothing, the retail price, and the price Kidbox will charge to keep that item (which is less than retail).
Lucky Boys Wave Polo Top – retail $24 (Kidbox price $16)
My son liked this reddish orange polo because it was thin and soft. It’s 100% cotton and has a surfboard and writing printed on the back that says, “ Big Swell Perfect Wave Surf Break USA”.
Lucky Boys Cargo Shorts – retail $34 (Kidbox price $22)
I love these khaki cargo shorts! They have an adjustable waist which is great for my son because he’s on the thinner side.
Diesel Boys Crew Neck Graphic Tee – retail $30 (Kidbox price $22)
This is a soft cotton t-shirt and my son likes it. I’m not a big fan of clothing with the designer logo on the front, but he’s happy. They sent a similar Diesel Graphic Tee in my last box that was black. It wears and washes well and I’m hopeful this one will too.
Weatherproof Vintage Boys Fleece Knit Shorts – retail $24 (Kidbox price $15)
This was easily my son’s favorite item in the box. He loves anything soft, fleecy and comfortable. They fit him well and are a great length.
Paper Denim & Cloth Boys Hooded Raglan Short Sleeve Top– retail $30 (Kidbox price $20)
This is such a cute shirt. The print on the inside of the hood is dark blue with little white stars. I like the contrasting placket, sleeve and pocket as well.
7 For All Mankind Swim Shorts – retail $42 (Kidbox price $30)
These swim shorts didn’t fit my son quite as well as the other items in the box, but they were okay. Since my son is very fair I typically buy him swim shorts with matching rash guards to give him extra sun protection. But it’s always nice to have another suit and I think these will be good for his swim lessons at the indoor pool.
My son is pretty camera shy so it wasn’t easy getting him to model for me. We tried our best though!
Verdict: I am so happy with KidBox! The value is amazing and these are well-known high end brands of clothing. The retail value of these six items is $184. Using the Kidbox prices they would be $125, but if you keep the whole box you’d only be charged $98. I love the ease of the process, the free shipping and all the little touches like the crayons and stickers that made it more fun for my son. He loved getting a special box filled with items just for him. Also, I want to note that Kidbox ships 5 boxes a year (spring, summer, back to school, fall and winter) but they will notify you before they ship in case you want to skip a box, change your child’s sizing or even their style preferences. If you keep the entire box for $98 you can also select a cause and Kidbox will make a donation to a kid in need such as a military family or foster child. What a great idea!
