Dopple Children’s Clothing Subscription Review – Winter 2020

Dopple is a quarterly clothing subscription for kids ages 0-10 years old featuring niche brands like Nico Nico, Misha + Puff, and Winter Water Factory, to name a few. Shopping for the perfect pieces for your kiddos can be time-consuming, so Dopple helps to remove the guesswork with their detailed quiz and scheduled convenience, so you can enjoy luxe clothing pieces chosen just for your child at 30-80% off of retail.

Your first Dopple Drop ships 7 business days after filling out the quiz and paying the $10 service fee. From there, a delivery will arrive every quarter. Pay only for what you keep with the $10 fee being credited toward your purchase, and send back the rest. A 15% discount is applied if all items are kept. Dopple covers shipping both ways.

This box is being reviewed as part of our February Galentine’s theme!

 

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This review is of the quarterly drop including 4-6 items with a $10 styling fee + free shipping.

Dopple Review Winter 2020

Here is some of the information Dopple collected about my son, Ronan, and our expectations pertaining to the budget of our first Drop:

Ronan’s birthday (omitted for privacy)

Gender: Male

Top Size: 3-6 mo

Budget for Tops: $20-35

Bottom Size: 3-6 mo

Budget for Bottoms: $20-35

Shoe Size: 2

Budget for Shoes: $25-39

Budget for Special Occasion Outfit: Under $40

 

After the initial sizing and budget info, Dopple takes you through a lengthy survey of different styles you may like. They also ask if there are any colors or patterns you love or dislike as well as brand names that “make you swoon.”

 

Each Drop comes with a big black envelope filled with a note from Ronan’s stylist, a page explaining how the subscription works, an invoice and a shipping bag with a return label. Dopple offers free shipping and free returns, always.

Now on to Ronan’s new Dopple finds!

 

Tea Collection Patterned Button up, 3-6 months – Retail Value $39.50 (currently on sale for $29.99), Listed Value $40, Dopple Price $34

I love this big boy shirt! These bold colors are hard to find in baby clothes, and I was happy to see I didn’t get anything baby blue or anything too cutesy. My babe is 3 months old, and he’s just transitioning his wardrobe to 3-6 month pieces; this shirt is still a little big on him, but I am sure he will fit into it perfectly within a week or two. The soft fabric got even softer after one wash, and I was relieved to see it did not require any ironing after being in the dryer.

Ronan is always wearing jammies around the house, so it was nice seeing him in such a stylish top.

 

MM Miki Miette Seth Hoodie, 3-6 months – Listed Value $53, Dopple Price $21

I love this hoodie! It is so soft and stylish.  Muted colors and neutrals like this remind me of the clothes at Pacific Sunwear, and I love that vibe for babies.

 

The fit of this hoodie is once again a little roomy, but rest assured, it will soon fit my evergrowing bundle. The oversized hood made Ronan laugh when it flopped down and touched his face, so we ended up making a little game out of it.

 

Tea Collection Corduroy Easy Baby Pants, 3-6 months –  Retail Value $45.50 (currently on sale for $24.99), Listed Value $46.00, Dopple Price $39

Can I please have a pair of these in my size? How cozy do these jersey-lined cords look!? This kid isn’t used to wearing pants; we are definitely a sleep n’ play kind of household (they are the easiest to change and are so cozy), but he wore these comfortably for a few hours without any complaints.

 

These roomy cords almost fit, and I have so many onesies to style with them. The grey color literally goes with everything! I was also impressed because even though this pair is heavy-duty, they were so easy to pull on and off of him. I am sure these will last many washes and hopefully will fit him for quite a while.

The Verdict: My first Dopple Drop was a huge success! They sent out some great finds that make me feel like a cool mom who knows how to dress her son fashionably (I need all the help I can get!). Dopple seems like they really pay attention to the survey results, and the items’ prices were all within my specified budgets. The MSRP values on my info sheet came very close to the retail values for the items I could find, so there was hardly (if any) value inflation. The value of this month’s drop is $139, and my total cost using Dopple’s prices, the 15% off keep-everything discount, and the $10 service fee credit came to $69.90, which is awesome savings! 

To Wrap Up: 

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You can sign up for a Drop at any time, which will ship within 7 business days of completing the survey. Dopple curates its pieces based on each individual’s preferences as well as what’s available. What you get might not be the same as what I got, but you could get something that fits your child’s style and size even better than the looks above.

Value Breakdown: The total retail value of this Drop comes to $139; the total using Dopple’s prices comes to $94, and the total sale price (since I am keeping all 3 pieces), including my 15% off discount, comes to $79.90. With the $10 service fee credit applied, that cost drops again to $69.90. That’s a total savings of about 50%!

Alternatively, at $69.90 for the Drop plus free shipping, you are paying approximately $23.30 per item.

  1. What a doll! Based on the comments (which echo my own thoughts), maybe for the next shipment you could choose the cheapest option for comparison?

  2. All of these baby subscriptions are so out of touch for normal moms.

  3. Spending that much money on baby clothes seems insane to me since they spit up, make a mess in general and then outgrow their clothes in a few months.

    • Yes, everything you said!!!

    • It’s less crazy if you plan on having several kids to stretch out the cost. Better quality fabric resists stains and holds up better, so there’s that.

  4. That’s adorable – and he is PRECIOUS!!

    But wow that’s an obscene amount for baby clothes! I don’t spend that much on my adult clothes, and I wear decently nice stuff lol

    Seems super cute and convenient if one can afford the convenience!

    • I agree, but I guess the good thing about this sub is that you can choose your budget, so you kind of know what you’re signing up for. Luckily, Ro has some stylish cousins who like to share hand-me-downs 🙂

    • And thank you!
