Kidbox Fall 2018 Review
Inside our box was a $30 off coupon for their new Dream Box pajama collection for sizes 2T-12 and a bag for us to use for returns as well as a magazine.
The magazine featured two sides. The first featured information and articles for parents, including some stats on bullying.
The second side was marked “No parents” and provided some articles for kids, a meet the KidBox team section as well as some recipes and even a Bingo game for them. Fun!
Inside this envelope were some nice alphabet stickers, our return label, and a booklet that outlined the box process and featured a note from our stylist.
There was also a section that gave details on their giving back program which was also featured on the bottom of the box. For every full box that is kept, Kidbox will donate a box of clothing to a child in need and I love that they showed us exactly who they are sending boxes to this season! This is a great incentive to keep your entire box and feel good about it.
This booklet also includes an invoice which lists the retail price for each item as well as the KidBox price for each item. Our retail price total was $276.48 while our KidBox total is $208, but if we keep the entire box, the cost is $98.
Kidbox Club Free Gift Mini Bunny
We also received this mini stuffed bunny, which the kids were happy to play with right away!
Cotton On Girls Bow Headband – Retail Price: $9.99 (Kidbox Price: $7)
My daughter loves to accessorize, so this was a perfect pick for her! I like the style of this one with the slouchy fabric and nice bow. The little silver stars with sparkles are a cute accent too!
Miki B Girls 2 Pack Camo Legging, Size 6– Retail Price: $34 (Kidbox Price: $26)
I don’t think I’ve ever put my daughter in anything camo before, it’s not really my style, but I ended up liking these on her a lot! They are pretty thin leggings, and I definitely think the retail price is a bit inflated for the quality, but leggings are something that she wears all the time and I love that there is one fun pair and one basic pair so she can wear them with anything.
French Toast Girls Criss-Cross Neck Tee, Size 6 – Retail Price: $12 (Kidbox Price: $9)
This is just a basic long sleeve black tee, but the bottom has a little bit of a flare to it and it has the cute criss-cross detail at the neckline. I promise it isn’t too tight on her neck! It’s just how she was standing. The price on this was definitely reasonable too!
Here is the full outfit (she chose the shoes!). I think that it’s a cute, playful outfit that she can run around and be comfortable in!
PS from Aeropostale Girls Metallic Puffer Vest, Size 6 – Retail Price: $42.50 (Kidbox Price: $32)
I’m pretty sure this is her favorite item in the box! We just passed down her vest that she wore last season to a friend and she was sad to see it go but thrilled to find this one in her box. I love the bright color and the nice metallic shimmer at the top. The back also has that cute cinched detail! Definitely, a great choice, although I can’t imagine ever paying that retail price for it, which makes me appreciate receiving it in this box even more!
Vigoss Girls Patchwork Denim, Size 6– Retail Price: $34 (Kidbox Price: $26)
I immediately disliked these jeans because they were so busy and actually felt a bit thin and not soft at all, but once she put them on, I actually came around to them! I think all of the distressing is actually sort of cute on her little legs, but it also might just be because it’s paired with my favorite item in the box! They are also slightly loose and lightweight so she was comfortable in them.
Samara Girls Stripe Sweater, Size 6X– Retail Price: $59.99 (Kidbox Price: $45)
This sweater! It’s so thick and nice, but soft and not itchy at all! The knit is actually really nice and I don’t see her snagging it, which I guess explains the high price tag! Another reason I am happy to receive it at a discounted price like this! It is definitely a quality sweater and something about this whole outfit gives me 80’s vibes for some reason. I love the look and that it is just a bit baggy on her meaning we can layer underneath if we need to!
I love the little heart detail on the chest and that it has this tiny split on the sides. I want one in my size!
Masala Baby Girls Black Jumpsuit, Size 6 – Retail Price: $84 (Kidbox Price: $63)
Okay, I saved the best…err worst…for last! This jumpsuit is just crazy to me but so fun! I think in theory it’s really cute and if it didn’t swallow her up then maybe I could see it working, but the way it fits her is almost comical. I’m still trying to sort out how I feel about it!
It does have really fun details like the pattern of the fabric, the subtle red glitter throughout, the gemstone buttons, the red lining on the pockets and that lace detailing on the front, plus it is a very thick and nice quality material. Maybe we can try it again next year when she actually grows into it! What do you think of this jumpsuit?
Verdict: I was impressed with all of the extras we received in this box, especially since there is no styling fee. The magazine, bunny, and stickers were all nice bonuses. As for the clothing, there were a lot of items that gave me pause when I first opened this box, but after trying them on, I really ended up loving everything, (jumpsuit excluded…I think!) and I loved how well these pieces all worked together to create full outfits instead of just separates. Some of the retail values felt inflated to me, but when you consider what a discount you get, it really makes it more affordable. For $98 that means each of the 7 items (counting the leggings as one) has an average value of $14, which I think is fair, especially if you consider that keeping the entire box means one box will be donated to someone in need! Overall, I’m happy!
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 $276.48 but the Kidbox price is technically $208, but with the discount from keeping a full box my total is $98! That’s about $14 per item.
