  1. Love kidpik & Fabkids at our house.

  2. KIDBOX isn’t actually a monthly subscription, it’s seasonal. They do about 5 boxes throughout the year – however you also can turn off the auto-subscription and just manually order when you want a box. That’s what I do. That way, you can skip seasons you don’t need, or double up and order two of your kid needs new clothes

    It’s always a flat fee to keep the whole box, which varies by tier/number of items, which is usually over 50% off the box value. If you catch a sale, even moreso! The old standard their was $99 to keep a wholr box with 8 items and $200+ value, but they’ve recently added a cheaper 6 item their and a more deluxe 10 item tier as well, so I’d need to double check prices. You can also send a whole box back (no charge/fee) or keep just one or two items you live at a discounted rate. If keeping 3+ items it is almost always worth just buying the whole box.

    The style your own box option is limited, as you only get to pick from about 20 outfit styles. However, the styles change every season, and they have half off sales a few times a year where you can buy a self-styled box for only $50 upfront. So if you love the styles they pick in a season, this is a great way to go! I generally find I like the style picks best for their Holiday/New Years boxes. Sometimes they do special boxes as well, so one of the four I got this last year I was able to choose a nice Star Wars thermos, backpack, craft kit, and some other things in addition to the clothes which made great gifts and activities.

  3. Kidpik has some sort of approval process they go through. I signed up and was notified that my subscription was not approved and they couldn’t tell me why. Very disappointing considering they took my payment info prior to doing whatever algorithm they do to approve/disapprove. Nonsense.

  4. Kidpik now offers boys clothing as well.

  5. My second daughter practically lives in a dress that has come in a Kidbox for my oldest, now that it fits her. I’m pleasantly surprised at how well everything has held up. I’ve gotten a number of boxes for my kids or to split as gifts. I don’t do the autosubscribe but like to just get them as needed.

    The customer service has been great. Styling is more hit and miss. I find it helps to send notes, but sometimes they just send what they have a lot of anyway. :s But a lot of my kids’ favorite pieces are from Kidbox. They sometimes go on sale for half off (the regular box not the always discounted clearance box which is more their in house brands) or have an extra box promo so I look out for those ones.

  6. Unfortunately, Kids on 45th is closed…

  7. It’s not for kids, but I signed my 12 year old up for basic man. Xs shirt, small undies and the socks are universal. He loves it! At his age, I love the convenience of new ‘basics’ being delivered every month.
    Just a thought for anyone with teenagers, or even husky kids.

  8. I wish that sizes were more inclusive for plus/husky.

    • Me too! I’ve even asked for husky, in the notes, for one of the above box subscriptions. I was told if they had it, they would. 🙄

  9. Why are there no subscription boxes that ship in or to Canada????

    • Because dealing with Canadian customs is a beeyotch. Unreal how you can drive anything you want over the border any time, but can’t mail it.

      However, if Canadian companies would take the initiative and start offering sub boxes to Canadian residents, that would be cool.

  10. Thank for making my kid stylish
