kidpik Subscription Box Review – Summer 2017
kidpik is a seasonal clothing subscription for girls. You can either choose to receive 1 box per season (4 per year), 2 boxes per season (8 per year), or a box every month. All the pieces are really well-made, and the designs are unique to kidpik. I think the easiest way to think of kidpik is that it is essentially Stitch Fix for girls, but with no styling fee. kidpik designs and produces all of its own apparel and accessories.
These two boxes were sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
Here’s M’s box.
And here’s F’s box.

Let’s take a look at M’s box first.
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 8 year old daughter, and I just used her initial. Usually, the girl’s first name will be included here. My daughter is especially excited that this whole box is just for her!
When you first sign up, you fill out a style profile for your girl. It is fun and easy to complete. And accurate. If you want to see details about this, you can see more here. Both of my daughters are very girly, love dresses and most colors, and I rated each of them a 10 out of 10 on the question about how much your girl loves sparkles.
Ok, let’s see what we’ve got! (This box was styled based on our preferences so what you receive could be totally different.) Looks interesting!
There are a couple of different bags.
Iron on patches. We are off to a colorful and fun start!
The next bag is reusable as a drawstring backpack. We like to use these when traveling.
Alexis Studded Gladiator – Listed Value $25.50 (Keep All Price $17.85)
M needed some new sandals for this summer, and these are perfect. They are classic and neutral and work well with her entire wardrobe. We always think kidpik is especially good at shoes, and these are no exception.
The hidden Velcro closure makes them easy to get on and off. The padded, kid-safe soles are perfect. M thinks these sandals look like what older girls wear, and of course, she loves that.
Studded Strand Bracelet – Listed Value $3.50 (Keep All Price $2.45)
This bracelet is another item that M loves because she thinks it looks like what older girls wear. I appreciate how the studs on it coordinate with her sandals.
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.
One of a Kind Tank – Listed Value $15.50 (Keep All Price $10.85)
This is a fun summer tank with crochet and sequin detailing. I washed it a few times already, and it has held up perfectly.
Lace Panel Short – Listed Value $19.50 (Keep All Price $13.65)
This is a clean, cutoff style white denim short with a hidden adjustable waistband.
All the clothing I have seen in kidpik boxes has been machine washable.
Bandana Pant– Listed Value $19.50 (Keep All Price $13.65)
This pant is totally different than anything M has in her wardrobe, but they are so fun and comfortable for her to wear! They totally remind me of the country Greece for some reason. Love it.
Elastic at the ankle.
Here’s the detailing on the pockets, which ties this piece in perfectly with the next item…
Cropped Sweatshirt – Listed Value $12.50 (Keep All Price $8.75)
This is a cozy sweatshirt, which works perfectly for summer nights at the beach that still have a chill in the air where we live in Southern California.
kidpik does a great job with details, such as the studs on the bracelet and sandals and the pant-pocket trim working with this sweatshirt.
Stripe Skater Tank Dress – Listed Value $15.50 (Keep All Price $10.85)
The last item in this box is this tank dress, which is easy to throw on and go.
Here is the full skirt. Perfect for twirling! Some of the items in kidpik boxes, including this dress, can also be found in their Basics shop. The shop has other items I haven’t seen in boxes myself and can be sorted by color among other things.
Let’s see these clothes in action in Death Valley, California, and then take a look at the box for my younger daughter! There are also photos of the girls together later in the review.
Let’s take a look at F’s box now! F also has a couple of bags near the top of her box.
She also received the iron on patches. The girls were excited to match!
Let’s see what is inside her drawstring backpack!
Lidia Strappy Sandal – Listed Value $17.50 (Keep All Price $12.25)
Yay! Another pair of comfortable sandals for my younger daughter! She can easily put them on herself, and they go with absolutely everything.
These also have a velcro closure, a padded sole, and non-slip bottoms. So adorable!
Flower Rhinestone Headband – Listed Value $6.50 (Keep All Price $4.55)
The English Rose color is beautiful here.
Here is the information card that came with this second box.
The front is personalized with my daughter’s name.
Now let’s look at what was underneath those bags.
Ditsy Floral Tie Front Top – Listed Value $17.50 (Keep All Price $12.25)
This is a soft, button-down shirt in a delicate floral pattern that ties in the front. It is lightweight and perfect for summer. All kidpik items we have ever tried fit true to size and hold up well through repeated laundry cycles.
Classic Short – Listed Value $14.50 (Keep All Price $10.15)
F received a pair of white shorts with a hidden adjustable waistband. These are easy for her to fasten herself since they come with a snap closure. (The shorts in the larger size in my other daughter’s box have a real button closure.)
One Pocket Tank – Listed Value $8.50 (Keep All Price $5.95)
Here we have a lightweight tank with a rounded hem and ribbed back and edge detailing.
Lace Hem Denim Jacket – Listed Value $29.50 (Keep All Price $20.65)
In the spring box, my older daughter received a denim jacket which she wears A LOT. She loves it. Her friends love it. This is so much so that she started a trend among girls her age at her elementary school. So you can imagine how excited our younger daughter was when she received her own denim jacket in the summer box! The summer version has added lace which gives the jacket its own flair.
There may or may not have been some squealing involved when this jacket showed up in her box!
Mixed Media Floral Dress – Listed Value $29.50 (Keep All Price $20.65)
This is a gorgeous lightweight dress that my daughter absolutely adores.
Here is a closer view and a peek at the lining in the dress. (Is it too much to ask kidpik to start a new subscription box for women? Sign me up.)
Let’s see these clothes in action and then both of the girls together!
kidpik always does a great job with sending pieces that mix and match easily. I always end up thinking each of these boxes is essentially its own capsule wardrobe.
The price for all the items in the first box is $120.14 if we purchase everything separately. The total for the second box is $133.07 if purchased separately. I noticed that there was sales tax charged on these 2 boxes, which I think is likely because these boxes shipped from CA, and we are in CA. We are normally charged taxes on clothing here. 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, and the free gift of sparkly patches, 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 the items and pay nothing. Awesome.
Plus, if you keep the whole box (which we always do, especially since everything works so well together), you get the 30% discount, so the price is $84.10 for the first box and $93.15 for the second box. I call that a deal!
She couldn’t resist tasting the salt at Badwater Basin.
Some final photos of the girls together!
Verdict: We love kidpik and are very excited to see what they send next! The quality is great and my daughters love wearing their new clothes! If you are on the fence about trying this one, give it shot.
