kidpik Subscription Box Review – Fall 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 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.
kidpik always sends a free gift for your girl, but you never know what they will include. M has been hoping for pins so this is already a win!
Raspberry Fur Bag – Price $9.50. (Keep All Price $6.65)
M is very excited about this bag. It is super soft and has a hidden closure inside. The strap can be tucked in to use this as a clutch.
Pleather Insert Top – Price $22.50. (Keep All Price $15.75)
This is very cozy shirt with black pleather detailing on the sleeves. It can be worn on its own, but also works as a nice layering piece.
The next bag is reusable as a drawstring backpack. We like to use these when traveling.
Velvet Glitter High Top – Price $34.50. (Keep All Price $24.15)
M absolutely loves anything with glitter. Add some black velvet and she will be in heaven. We always think kidpik is especially good at shoes and these are no exception.
Mesmerizing. The inside zipper closure makes them easy to get on and off. The kid-safe soles are perfect.
Here is an action shot. Fear not. We’ve got plenty more action shots to come in this review!
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.
Pleather Fringe Dress – Price $32.50 (Keep All Price $22.75)
Ahh… The pièce de résistance according to my daughter. She wore this dress the first day of school and it was a hit with other girls and 3rd grade moms alike. The back of the dress is all black with no fringe.
Close up of the fringe.
5 Pocket Knit Pant– Price $15.50 (Keep All Price $10.85)
This is a classic knit pant that goes with pretty much everything M owns. It is stretchy and easy for her to put on.
Buffalo Check Tiered Skirt – Price $19.50 (Keep All Price $13.65)
Plaid is a classic look for fall and I really like how kidpik has mixed it up a bit here and made it fresh. This is a substantially weighted fabric. The waistband is stretchy. All clothing I have seen in kidpik boxes is machine washable and holds up well over time.
See Ya Tee – Price $17.50 (Keep All Price $12.25)
This is a lightweight long sleeve tee which is just slightly longer in the back.
kidpik does a great job adding fun details to their pieces such as the eyelashes and sequin lips here. I turned this shirt inside out when I washed it and it came out looking like new.
kidpik also has a program working with the GOOD+ Foundation that allows girls to give back and makes it easy for them to do so.
The foundation has a 4 star rating on Charity Navigator. We love this!
Let’s see these clothes in action, 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 pins. The girls were excited to match!
Bow 5Pack Pony – Price $5.50. (Keep All Price $3.85)
These perfectly coordinate with everything in this box.
F often wears a ponytail in her hair so these are perfect.
Let’s see what is inside her drawstring backpack!
Metallic Sneaker – Price $29.50. (Keep All Price $20.65)
Yay! Another pair of awesome shoes for my younger daughter! She can easily put them on herself and they go with everything.
These also have velcro closures and non-slip bottoms. So adorable!
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.
Be Happy Tee – Price $17.50. (Keep All Price $12.25)
This is a soft, ¾ length sleeve shirt with a butterfly and sequin design. It is lightweight and perfect for fall. All kidpik items we have ever tried fit true to size.
Floral Velour Skirt – Price $17.50. (Keep All Price $12.25)
F received this beautiful, lined floral skirt. She thinks it is special and fancy and I agree. It pairs well with the butterfly shirt, too.
Denim Straight Jean – Price $17.50. (Keep All Price $12.25)
These jeans also work nicely with the butterfly tee.
These are easy for her to fasten herself since they come with a snap closure. They also have a hidden, adjustable waistband.
Knit Rocker Jacket – Price $29.50 (Keep All Price $20.65)
Here we have a knit jacket. It is a little edgy which makes it fun while still appealing to a 6-year-old girly girl.
With the pins. The zippers are all functional, but the pockets are faux here. This is a great fall piece!
Ruffle Dress – Price $19.50 (Keep All Price $13.65)
This is a sleeveless, stretchy dress with ruffles all over the front and back in a pale, aqua color.
Love the ruffle detail.
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 perfectly. Each of these boxes is essentially its own capsule wardrobe.
The price for all the items in the first box is $151.50 if we purchase everything separately. The total for the second box is $136.50 if purchased separately. I noticed that there was also 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, 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.
She thinks her dress looks like the ocean.
If you keep the whole box, you get the 30% discount so the clothing is $106.05 for the first box and $95.55 for the second box. I call that a deal!
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.
