Collective Child Clothing Box Review – March 2017
Collective Child is a members-only high-end clothing styling service for children. The Collective Child stylists take your lifestyle, feedback, and seasonal weather into consideration when packing your box.
Collective Child works like some women’s clothing styling boxes. You begin by filling out a style profile for your child. Information about sizing, preferred colors and prints are all taken into account. After completing the style form, your box will ship out in about 10 days. You have 10 days to have your child try on all the pieces and then you mail anything back that you decide not to keep with the prepaid mailer. Once they receive your mailer you’ll be billed for the items you decided to keep. Pricing is comparable to high-end department stores.

The information booklet came with simple directions as well as an itemized account of each piece of clothing and its price.
They also included a rather in-depth return form. This will help your stylist understand why you’ve chosen to keep and return each item. You can let them know about style, fabric, fit, price, etc. They even left room for any additional comments you may wish to make. This did take some time to complete, but I appreciate their effort to garner feedback which will helpfully hone future boxes.
Rylee + Cru Floral Button Back Dress – Cost to keep: $64.00
This drop-waisted dress fit my daughter well. The cotton was a thin and slightly rough like linen. It was fully lined and delicate buttons down the back. I liked the muted colors and floral print.
Tinycottons Peach Logo Pants – Cost to keep: $37.00
These peach leggings are a pima cotton and elastane blend with great softness and stretch. I wasn’t crazy about the X on the knees, however.
Tinycottons Pink Frenchie Tank – Cost to keep: $32.00
My daughter squealed when she saw this tank. She loves all things dog. She couldn’t stop looking at the dog in the pocket as I was taking her photo so I knew this was a keeper for sure. Pink, quirky, playful and priced under $40 made this a nice choice for us.
Imps&Elfs Tshirt Dress – Cost to keep: $43.00
This dress was lightweight and perfect for spring. My daughter wasn’t crazy about it though and I’m not a big fan of cotton/poly blends which I find don’t wash/dry well and tend to pill up. This will go back.
Rylee + Cru Lion Sweatshirt – Cost to keep: $55.00
This sweatshirt was adorable with the pretty mint color and lion face. It was thick, soft and so playful with the little bowtie.
Rylee + Cru Dots & Diamonds Sweatpants – Cost to keep: $48.00
These sweatpants had a thick weight to them and I liked the polka dot and diamond shape print. Love that they had pockets too!
Go Gently Nation Charcoal Gauze Top – Cost to keep: $42.00
Can I get this gauze tank in my size?! It’s adorable, made in the USA and 100% organic cotton.
Rylee + Cru Stars Track Shorts – Cost to keep: $43
Oh my I love these track shorts with the gray star print. They have a drawstring waist and go up a bit on the outer thigh with a notched hem. My daughter adores them.
Verdict: Where to start? First off I want to say that this is by no means a discount clothing box, nor does it claim to be. They are very up front that this is a high-end box of clothing with department store type pricing. These are the prices I would expect to pay at Nordstrom, not Old Navy. However, the quality of this clothing is also fantastic. The fabrics, stitching, design etc. are all top-notch. Every single brand they sent was new to me and many items were highly covetable. I’m so impressed with how they listened to my feedback from Box #1 and sent items with lower price points and no mustard yellow. If you’re in the market for high-end, lesser-known brands of high-quality clothing I recommend trying this styling service for your child. It’s easy and with no styling or shipping fee, it’s worth a shot!
