Kidbox is a kid’s clothing box that “combines cool brands, meaningful savings and a mission to clothe children in need.” 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.

Kidbox offers a few options: the Baby by Kidbox for sizes Newborn-24 months, Kidbox for sizes 2T-14, and a new Kidsentials, socks and underwear on-demand service.

This review is of the Girl’s New Year Box by Kidbox in size 6.

Kidbox 2019 New Year Box for Girls Review

Inside our box were a bunch of extras and a bag for us to use for exchanging/returning items with a prepaid label.

The box comes with a mini newspaper that has information for both parents and kids. The parent side had a note from the CEO and some helpful parenting advice on tantrums and raising kind kids.

The kid side featured some interviews with kids, a recipe, styling tips, and a few other activities. I think the inclusion of this paper is a fun touch!

Kidbox Club Free Gift Playing Cards

Each box also includes a free gift and this time we received this cute deck of playing cards.

We received this sleeve which contained a 4 pack of crayons, a sheet of fun alphabet stickers, and our invoice. The front of the invoice had a note from our stylist on it. It is addressed to the wrong person, but I think the gist of the information is the same for everyone.

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 now you can go to your account and choose the charity with your child! This is a great incentive to keep your entire box and feel good about it, while also teaching your kids a great lesson on giving back.

Here is a closer look at our invoice which lists the retail price for each item as well as the KidBox price for each item. Our retail price total was $210 while our KidBox total is $152, but if we keep the entire box, the cost is $98. Let’s see what we received:

Miki B Girls 2 Pack Star Print Legging, Size 6 – Retail Price: $34, Kidbox Price: $25

This is the second time we have received a set of Miki B leggings in our box and now that we’ve had the first set for a while, I will say that they stand up pretty well to kid-wear. The leggings are pretty thin and I still think the retail price is a bit inflated for the quality, but this cute set fit her nicely and they will pair with pretty much anything, so I’m happy with these.

BCBG Girls Printed Mesh Dress – Retail Price: $44 (found on sale here for $34), Kidbox Price: $28

When my daughter saw this dress, she was ecstatic and couldn’t wait to try it on. We paired it here with the gray Miki B. leggings and I think they look great together! The dress is sleeveless so we’ll pair it with a cardigan for now, but I know that she will get a lot of use out of this one simply because she loves it so much.

Here is a closeup of the mesh material and the fun metallic gold stars. She’s very concerned that she doesn’t have any “golden” shoes that match to wear it with. I think the quality of this dress is nice and while it does say handwash only, I washed it on delicate and it came out just fine.

Coupe Collection Girls Denim Peasant Top, Size 6 – Retail Price: $34.50, Kidbox Price: $26

This top is really cute and normally, I would pair it with navy leggings, but when you’re doing a photo shoot with a four-year-old, you try to minimize the outfit changes! This shirt fits very tightly when trying to get it over her head for some reason, but once it was on, I thought it fit her well. Sorry I didn’t get a chance to iron it first so it’s a bit wrinkly.

The flared sleeves and the embroidery details were really cute and the sleeves might even be a bit long on her, which is good because I think this will be a nice spring shirt.

Flowers by Zoe Girls Lightning Bolt Top, Size 6 – Retail Price: $36, Kidbox Price: $27

This next shirt I had her pair with her Miki B star leggings and told her it was her superhero outfit, hence, her pose in the first photo. This shirt isn’t quite her style, but I like it, so I wanted to encourage her to try something new. This is just a basic gray long sleeve soft cotton tee with fun lightning bolts, so I’m not sure why the retail price is so high. It is also handwash only, which I was surprised at.

It does have this fun cutout detail on one shoulder which makes it a bit more interesting, but I couldn’t see myself ever paying full price for this top.

Vigoss Girls Embroidered Heart Patch Denim, Size 6– Retail Price: $34 (Kidbox Price: $26)

These jeans are the cutest! I love the wash with the slight fade and those rolled cuffs at the bottom. The embroidered red hearts are super cute and she’s already planning to wear these for Valentine’s Day. They even have a fun red stitch detail in the cuffs if you look closely. These fit her nicely (pictured below), although a tad loose at the waist, but they have adjustable elastic in the waistband to help with that.

Jessica Simpson Girls Striped Ruffle Top w/ Sparkle Mesh Peplum, Size 6 – Retail Price: $27.50, Kidbox Price: $20

When I first took this shirt out, I thought it looked incredibly wide, and it is a little bit, but I think it’s still a really cute top and not too noticeable on her. Of course, she loves the sparkly mesh and I like the stripes which made for a surprisingly cute combo! I love the details on this top like the gold button at the back.

Here is a closeup of the fabric and the fun ruffle hem at the sleeves.

Here is a closeup shot of the jeans on her. You can see they are just a tad baggy and long, which I’m happy with because it means she won’t be outgrowing them too soon!

Verdict: Kidbox is such a fun one to receive thanks to all of the extra goodies they include like the gift, newspaper, and stickers. It makes opening the box more of an experience, which is definitely exciting to a kid! I love that there is no styling fee and the fact that they donate to those in need. As for the clothing items we received, I think that there was a good mix of items that suited my daughter’s style and I liked that a lot of the items went together to create complete outfits. While I think some of the retail values are a bit high for the items, the discount that you get for keeping everything makes it more affordable at $98 for 6 items (counting the leggings as one). I’m happy with this box and so is my daughter, so I’d consider it a win!

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!

LIMITED TIME DEAL: Use code MSA20 for $20 off your first box

Value Breakdown: The retail price of all my items add up to $210 but the Kidbox price is technically $152, but with the discount from keeping a full box my total is $98! That’s about $16 per item.

  1. Oh my that dress was made for your little fairy princess!!

  2. I love kid box. I get it for my grandson and the value is awesome. Such a cute box for your daughter.

  3. Pretty cute! We got some similar items in our first box (Miki B legging pack, and similar black cotton dress with mesh/stars but it was Design History and a slightly different style) – kept everything! Did end up with a damaged Jessica Simpson outfit but CS was great and they shipped out a replacement in a different style. Our second box wasn’t quite the style match the first was so we only kept some leggings, but overall I really like Kidbox and plan to order another soon. 🙂 I really like that they have a flat fee for keeping everything.

    • Just got our third box! Overall it was pretty great, my notes were paid attention to more. My daughter got an adorable pair of unicorn earmuffs/gloves, a gorgeous lavender velvet and tulle dress, a nice Reebok warm outfit, and some other items. My daughter’s favorite was actually a colorful supergirl shirt. One item was a major miss though as I’d said no big brand logos and no word elements – and it was basically just a brand shirt with lots of words. (Adidas, so it was “the brand with three stripes” written over and over in a heart shape) So that one I will need to donate or give away. But everything else was nice and there were four pieces I loved out of the batch, so we kept the whole box.
