Baby by Kidbox Summer 2018 Review
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.
Chickpea Boys 2PC Tee & Shorts “Sup Ladies” – Retail Price $24 (Kidbox Price $18)
I was really excited when I saw this outfit with the black and white and the shirt’s pattern – but then I saw the words. I don’t usually dress my children in shirts that have phrases, but I, personally, especially do not allow sayings that are related to flirting/dating/etc on my small children. This outfit itself is really cute, but the phrase printed on the shirt means this has to go back.
Miniville Boys Monster Onesie – Retail Price $28 (Kidbox Price $21)
This is adorable! I love the little “monster” details on the side. Jace got some pants with the same detail from his Target Cat & Jack Spring box recently, too. I think little rompers like this are so cute.
Miniville Boys Tee and Jogger Set – Retail Price $28 (Kidbox Price $21)
This outfit is cute, but it runs large! They’re 12-month, and Jace is just 8 months but he’s in a lot of 12-month clothing. By the time he fits the waistband of these joggers, they’ll be too short. I love the tee, though! It also runs big but should fit him fine in a couple months.
Art + Eden Boys “Dorian” Tiger 2 piece Set – Retail Price $30 (Kidbox Price $23)
I love this little outfit, too. The tan and taupe colors aren’t ones I’d pick out or put together but I actually think they look super cute. The pants fit perfectly, which is my favorite part. The fabric is really soft, too!
Aden by Aden + Anais Washcloth set 3 pack – Retail Price $12 (Kidbox Price $10)
I was surprised to see a non-clothing item in this box for purchase. Previously, I had only seen non-clothing items as a bonus gift that’s free even if you send everything back. That being said, I actually do love these washcloths for my son. They are sooo soft, and they’re larger than normal bath washcloths! I didn’t think I’d want to keep these, but once I felt them I realized I really liked them, and I don’t already have any “baby washcloths” so I kept them.
Nuby Deluxe Stroller Hooks – Retail Value $3.99 (Kidbox Free Gift – you keep it no charge even if you send back the whole box!)
I think these stroller hooks are a smart design! They’re very handy and keep my valuable basket space clear when using my stroller. I don’t actually use my stroller much these days, but this is going straight into the pocket of it to use next time we’re out!
Verdict: I really liked almost everything in this month’s Kidbox for my 8-month-old. I will say, though, that I was surprised at the very neutral/monochromatic color scheme they picked for me when I told them my son wears mostly bright colors in his style profile. It ended up being okay, though, because I like the items and he doesn’t have anything like them already. Also, If you keep the entire box, 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. I appreciate that Kidbox gives back.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Your box will be personally curated for you based on your child’s age, style preferences, sizing, and Kidbox’s current/featured stock!
Value Breakdown: The retail price of all my items add up to $122.99 but the Kidbox price is technically $93, but with the discount from keeping a full box my total is $68! That’s about $13.60 per item.
