FabKids (little sister brand to Fabletics and JustFab) is a monthly clothing subscription for boys and girls that allows you to shop in two ways - you can shop the regular store, or you can sign up for their VIP membership. VIP memberships work like this:
- Take the FabKids quiz for your child (for multiple children you can add a kid) to note their size and style preferences.
- Each month, FabKids releases a new collection and they will curate looks that match your child's preferences which you can view in their personalized FabShop.
- Shop those looks at 40% off what you’d get just paying retail, or skip the month. You have to make your decision by the 5th of the month. If you do neither, the $29.95 monthly membership fee will be saved to your account as a credit, which you can put towards other outfits later.
- As you shop, you’ll also earn points that can be applied towards future purchases.

FabKids Boys May 2020 Review
When you sign up they will ask you a few questions about your child: their name, age, clothing size, favorite weekend activity, and which outfit you prefer out of a few options. This helps to personalize your child's "FabShop" each month. If you have multiple kids you are shopping for, there is an option to "add a kid."
This is the packing slip we received with instructions for returns and exchanges on the back. This month they were having a sale so I was able to score some pretty decent deals and stock my son up on some warmer weather items!
Pizza Shark Sleep Set, Size XS (4T/5T) - Retail Value $32.00, VIP Cost $24.95 (Currently on sale for $19.00)
My son needed some new pajamas and since he loves both sharks and pizza, these fun pajamas seemed like a perfect fit for him! Since he wears a 4T usually and these are a 4T/5T I am hoping they will fit him a little longer than most. These were on promo for $15.00 which is a bit more than I like to spend for one pair of pajamas, but I also received an additional percentage off, so I'm not sure exactly what I ended up paying for these.
They are soft and comfortable and fit him well. The waistband is adjustable, too.
Black Sunglasses, One Size - Retail Value $14.00, VIP Cost $9.95
I needed a little something extra to get free shipping and since you can never have enough sunglasses, I thought these would be a good pick! I love the color and the shape of these, but they are really big on him so we may have to save these for next year! My son has a pretty big head and these are one size fits all so I was surprised at how large they are. They actually fit me almost comfortably and I have a pretty large head as well. These were on promo for $6.00 and I paid even less than that with the sale. It looks like these are no longer available to purchase.
Dino Blues Outfit, Size XS (4T/5T) - Retail Value $56.00, VIP Cost $32.95
- Awesome Pocket Tee - Retail Value $22.00, VIP Cost $16.95 (currently on sale for $9.99)
- Cuffed Denim Short - Retail Value $34.00, VIP Cost $24.95
This next item I purchased as a set, although it looks like they are now only sold as individual items. I did save $8.95 off of the VIP price by purchasing it as an outfit, and then saved even more on top of that since it was on promo for $19.00 at the time. The shorts have an adjustable waistband with a simple snap closure so I am hoping these will last him a while and the top was just too cute to pass up since he loves dinosaurs and bright colors!
This outfit fits him well although the shorts are a bit big. After adjusting the waistband they were fine, though!
Here you can see the outfit with the sunglasses. Such a cool kid!
French Terry Short, Size XS (4T/5T) - Retail Value $26.00, VIP Cost $19.95
My son was also in need of some play shorts and since he loves what he calls his "pink" (they're red) pants, I knew he would appreciate these dark orange shorts! They have an adjustable tie waist and pockets at the front as well as a single pocket on the back. These are a little big on him, but hopefully, they will shrink a little in the wash and we can always roll them up if we need to. They are a nice thick, quality short and I think he will probably get away with wearing these next summer too, and then they'll be passed down to his younger brother. These weren't on sale, but I did still save on them with my final discount.
The Verdict: I really loved all of the summery picks for my son from FabKids this month! We got some basic pieces that he will get a lot of use out of and the designs were really fun, too. It's a bummer that the sunglasses don't fit, but we can easily save them for next year and since they were so cheap, I'm not too bothered by it! I ended up saving a good bit off the VIP prices with the sale they had going on. The retail price of these items was $128.00 and the VIP prices was $87.80, but after taxes, we only paid $54.93 with free shipping thanks to the great sale. I think that is pretty decent for a pair of pajamas, two pairs of shorts, a shirt, and a pair of sunglasses. While the clothes cost a bit more than retail stores, I'm usually willing to spend just a bit more on my son knowing that they'll get passed down to his little brother!
To Wrap Up:
