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).

There was a welcome booklet personalized with my son’s name and simple directions for returning unwanted items or exchanging for alternate sizes. There’s also a plastic mailer and pre-addressed sticker to easily return anything you’re not keeping. They mailed an inflatable Kidbox ball as well.

Penguin Palm Print Button Front Shirt – retail $38 (Kidbox price $28)

My son isn’t a big fan of button down shirts. They feel a little too stiff and formal to him, but there are occasions when we like him to wear something nicer than a tee and this is nice to have on hand. I like the blue on blue palm print. It’s great for summer.

Lucky Boy’s Striped Tee – retail $24 (Kidbox price $18)

We normally really like the items from Lucky brand, but the gray, red and orange stripes on this one didn’t rock either of us. There was also a small blue stain on the front of this shirt so it will be going back. We had a stained shirt in our spring box too which is a bummer.

Frenchie Mini Couture – retail $25 (Kidbox price $18)

This gray Henley shirt is a poly/cotton/linen blend that makes it feel very soft. The wooden button tabs on the sleeve were a nice touch. My son liked this shirt best of the four they sent.

US Polo Assn. Short Sleeve Stripe Tee – retail $18 (Kidbox price $13)

This tee is a cotton/poly blend. The green and blue design is not carried over to the back of the shirt, which is just plain white. The material was a bit thin making it quite sheer.

Penguin Oxford Shorts – retail $36 (Kidbox price $24)

These shorts had a grosgrain ribbon belt which was a cool preppy touch. Unfortunately, they were too small on my son and we couldn’t fasten them. I have found that Penguin brand seems to run a bit small.

Losan Twill Shorts – retail $50 (Kidbox price $35)

These red twill shorts from Spain are such high quality and I love the bright red color. They have a slight bit of stretch to them and were a good length on my son.

Lucky Boy’s Print Shorts – retail $34.50 (Kidbox price $26)

We really liked these Lucky brand navy cargo shorts. They have a medium blue scattered dot print which gives them some character without being in your face loud. They will match about anything in my son’s wardrobe and they fit him well too.

Here’s my son in the Penguin palm print shirt and Penguin shorts. Luckily the shirt was long enough that you can’t tell the shorts weren’t closed!

This is the Lucky striped tee and Losan shorts.

We kept the red Losan shorts on and paired them with the Frenchie gray Henley. My son liked this outfit a lot.

Here is sporting the US Polo Assn. tee and Lucky navy printed shorts.

Verdict: We think KidBox is a great clothing subscription. The retail value of these seven items is $225.50. Using the KidBox prices they would be $164, but if we keep the whole box we’d only be charged $98. Some of the items were a bit small on my son but it is easy to exchange for a bigger size. The one shirt that had a stain was a bit of a bummer, especially since this is the second time in a row that has happened. My son loved getting a special box filled with items just for him and the whole process of using Kidbox is super easy. 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. We love that Kidbox gives back.

  1. Although I loved the idea of kid box. I wasn’t satisfied with ours. I picked the Athletic box and we only received one item that fit that category. I liked the item but to keep just the one it would have been 31$ I got the toddler box which is originally 58$ for 5 items if you keep the box, so just that one item would have been more than half the box. I did some searching and found the exact same item on Amazon for 12.99!

  2. Also, just in case anyone is considering this box, subscribers received the summer box at the beginning of summer. I think my daughters box arrived sometime around the first week of May. They’ve already sent out back to school boxes, I believe. I actually skipped back to school since my daughter is 2, but I received a notice about it a good two weeks ago.

  3. He is adorable and clearly a good sport modeling these. That said is $98. for 3 summer outfits that won’t fit next year a good deal? I don’t have children but it seems high.

    • Thank you! He actually enjoys it! I typically spend $15-$30 per item of clothes for my son (depending on brand and what it is of course) so to me 7 items for $98 is a good deal. I think it all depends on where you normally shop and also the convenience factor. 😊

  4. I think that is an amazing deal; $98 for three full outfits plus an extra shirt. Even if you didn’t like a couple of the items, the price is amazing. Not to mention the quality is a lot higher than what you would find at Target or Old Navy.

    • Yes, definitely a good deal!

  5. Really cute, nice clothes!! Still a little more than I’d spend for kids clothes, but super cute!
