Go Time Outfit – Value $45

This is the outfit that I chose this month for my eight-year-old. I just transitioned them both into a size up, so this guy is now wearing the size L or 8-10 clothes from FabKids, and they’re a little bit big on him yet. He’s eight and a half, and he’s average for his height but very slender, so it’s pretty normal for clothes to be a little big on him. FabKids’ tops especially seem to be pretty slim cut, so that’s something to keep in mind when shopping for your sons. This is a great play outfit! It’s very comfortable and soft, and I find that FabKids’ pieces tend to be well made.

The New Awesome Outfit – Value $45

This outfit is for my ten-year-old, and it’s a size XL or 12. He is average for both height and weight for his age. He really liked the shirt! Kids in this age range seem to like boastful t-shirts for some reason.


This coupon for a free box from Graze was included this month.


This set of free samples from Garnier SkinActive was also included. I applaud them for including a sample of Miracle Anti-Fatigue in FabKids! Yes, we moms are exhausted! How funny! I have kind of sensitive skin, but I decided to give them a shot one evening and the following morning. My skin felt moist for sure, but I don’t know if anything really miraculous happened.

Verdict: I have been a big fan of FabKids for a long time, but I feel like recently their outfit selections for boys has moved in the wrong direction. I have always wished they would offer more in the way of jackets and dress clothes, but recently they have stripped the boys’ clothing selection down to lounge shorts, lounge pants, and tee shirts. They don’t even offer jeans, khakis, or any other style of shirt at the moment. I do still love their play clothes, and so do my kids, and the value ($90 worth of clothing for $60) is still pretty good. I would just love to see them offer a wider variety of boys’ clothing in the future.

What do you think of FabKids for boys? Which outfits did you pick out this month?

  1. I have to admit, I am not impressed at all. Thank you for the review because there’s no way I would spend $30 for either of those outfits. They’re not unique or eye-catching in a good way. Really looks like basic staples I could pick up at Target for half the price.

  2. Wow, this does not seem like great value based on the photos – looking like Old Navy styles (no offense to Old Navy) at Gymboree prices. Of course, if they’re more durable than ON, that would be worth it but you can never know that in advance.

    • Hi AC! I know what you mean. I just wanted to chime in and say yes, it is way more durable than ON based on a couple of years subscribing now, and it’s softer. I’m with you on the styling though.

  3. I like the fit and construction of the clothes but rarely the styling. Target’s new line seems to be a similar aesthetic, so maybe I’m just the boring uncool mom.

  4. They have such a huge selection of girls clothes. I feel like the boys clothes are just a slight variation of the clothes from the month before. And there are only a few boys things you can get with your rewards. I like how the clothes are soft and comfortable but boys deserve to have stylish clothes too. I also feel like a lot of the clothes are geared for very young boys.

    • Well said, Jessica. Agree.
