The 12 Best Kids Clothing Boxes – 2022 Readers’ Choice Awards

Kelly Wright
ByKelly WrightNov 9, 2022

Every parent knows how hard it is to find the time to take their kids shopping for new clothes. Between the soccer practices, swimming lessons, homework, and general kid stuff, it can be nearly impossible. That leaves us trying to guess styles they may like, how much they might grow (and how quickly) in the coming months, and find prices that fit within our budget, all while out trying to get a million other things done. When you finally find something great that they love and can't wait to wear, it's a happy moment. It really is the little things!

Kid's clothes shopping doesn't have to be hard anymore though. The subscription box world actually makes it incredibly easy and surprisingly painless, dare I say, even enjoyable! The kids are excited to get a whole box just for themselves and the clothes are stylish and comfortable. The best part? They keep coming every season without you ever having to leave the house, meaning your kids' clothing needs will always be taken care of. A win/win!

Below, you’ll find our insights for shopping kids' clothing subscription boxes, and see readers’ top choices for every age group.

1. kidpik

Best Kids' Clothing Subscription Overall


What's in This Box?
kidpik is a monthly clothing subscription for younger children, and our readers love their simplified approach to kids' fashion.
Answer a few quick questions, and you’ll receive a customized 8-piece collection of trendy clothes. Apparel options include high-quality shoes, garments, and accessories, all of which are curated to create multiple mix-and-match outfits.

You keep what you’d like — and pay less than you would if you went shopping at your local department store. Mail back any unworn items you don’t want within 7 days. Keep all of the clothes in the box, and you’ll get a 30% discount. Styling, shipping, and returns are always free.

You can choose shipping for every 4, 6, or 8 weeks, making this a great choice for parents with kids growing at all speeds. You can also shop for individual items, pre-styled boxes, or outfits in the kidpik shop if you'd prefer not to have a subscription or wish to supplement your membership with more options.

Overall, kidpik wins high marks for its commitment to providing fashionable clothes at a great price (and with a straightforward ordering process). Our readers note the company’s exceptional customer service and fashion-forward curation. This is one of the best kids' clothes boxes available, and if you’re a busy parent, it’s well worth a try.

You can also earn kidpik koins for keeping an entire box or writing a review on their website. The koins can be used for free clothes.

Who Is This Box Good For?

Girls and boys sizes 2T to 16.

Pros

  • No styling fee
  • Shop individual items, pre-styled boxes, or outfits in the kidpik shop
  • A large range of sizes
  • Clothes are durable and extremely soft (great for kiddo's who don't like certain fabrics)
  • Affordable prices (plus 30% discount if you keep the entire box)

Cons

  • Only sends out their own kidpik brand, so if you are looking for designer-named clothing for your kids...you won't find that in this subscription box
  • The koins marketplace has popular items, but that means it's sold out often and goes quickly when restocked
  • Only ships within the US

What Our Readers Say:

What's in This Box?

Nothing completes an outfit better than the perfect pair of shoes and we cannot get enough of the adorable styles that Nina offers.

You're sure to find a cute pair of shoes that even your pickiest kid will love with hundreds of options from dress shoes, sneakers, sandals, ballet flats, and boots. There are selections for the tiniest tots with shoes starting at infant size 5 through toddler sizes and up to youth size 3.

There are half sizes available as well as 3 width options, so your kid will get the best possible fit for their feet. Not only are Nina shoes stylish but they're made with flexible outsoles so they're comfortable too. While Nina doesn't offer a subscription, its wide range of kids' shoes can't be beat.

What's in This Subscription Box?

Stitch Fix Kids is a clothing styling service from Stitch Fix, offering sizes 2T-14 for boys and girls. Our readers love Stitch Fix (and so do we, by the way), and the company’s legendary curation pairs perfectly with the always-moving world of children's fashion.

First, you’ll fill out a style survey. A personal stylist will curate 8-10 items based on your preferences and ship clothes starting at just $10 each. There is a $20 styling fee, but it goes towards any of the clothes you purchase. You only lose it if you decide to return every item. If you keep all of the items, you’ll enjoy a 25% discount.

You also get to choose the delivery schedule that works for you. You can also request a one-time Fix anytime your growing kiddo needs to upgrade their wardrobe (in other words, this service is great for growth spurts).

Boys and girls sizes 2T to 14

Pros

  • No subscription required (unless you want automatic deliveries)
  • Flexible options with when and how often you need a Fix

You can also use the monthly fee to go towards any clothing you order from the site.

All items of clothing are well-made and on-trend. They’re also exclusive to the FabKids brand so you won’t find them anywhere else. Each month, the company releases a new collection and sends a two-piece outfit — however, you can always skip a month if you don’t need anything new.

11. Wee Blessing

A Clothing Subscription Box for Kids (And the Whole Family)

What's in This Subscription Box?

Wee Blessing is primarily a kids’ clothing subscription box, but they also offer options for teens, adults, and maternity apparel.

You’ll have 10 days for your kid to try it all on and determine what they want to keep — you’ll be charged for only those items and can send everything else back for free. Be sure to give feedback on your picks so your next box is even better!

Wee Blessing also has a “like new” program, which sends gently used second-hand clothes for your kid to explore. The like-new clothing is $4 per item, charged upfront. It’s an excellent way to reduce waste — particularly if your kid’s fashion preferences seem to change every week.

How to Get The Most Out of Your Kids' Clothing Subscription Once You’ve Picked

Once you’ve picked out the right box for you, follow our steps to help make sure you make the most of your new subscription.

  • Once you get your subscription box, be sure to have your kids try the clothes on right away. If they don't fit, you have a very finite amount of time to get them in the mail before you are charged.
  • Some of these kids' clothing subscription boxes will actually give you a great discount if you keep all of the items in the box. If there is only one item that your child doesn't like or doesn't fit, make sure that you aren't actually going to be paying more for keeping less. Sometimes, it makes sense to keep the item in order to get the discount!
  • As your kids grow and their tastes and preferences change, make sure your subscription allows you to update their profile. This will save you time and the hassle of having to send a lot back.

Factors We Considered When Reviewing These Clothing Subscriptions for Kids

This list features our fellow subscription fanatics’ top choices, and we can confidently recommend the subscriptions above since we’ve researched and reviewed them all. Factors we considered when reviewing these subscriptions include:

  • Variety - We looked for boxes that addressed different priorities in kids' fashion. Some offer indie brands, some offer gently used clothing, and some offer the latest name-brand items — by including a mix of different fashions, we hope to offer the resources you need to find something that works.
  • Overall Quality - Kids' clothing is expensive, so you want items that will last. We read through user reviews and combined that information with our staff writers' experiences when vetting each company. These subscriptions offer an excellent overall value compared with what you’d find in retail stores (and in many cases, these brands go above and beyond their retail counterparts).
  • Order Management Options - Some kids go through clothes every week — others wear the same clothes for months at a time. We looked for kids' clothing subscriptions that recognized that fact; most of the services on this list offer numerous options (or, at the very least, easy “skip a box" features) to enable parents to control their deliveries.
  • Customer Service - Many of these kids’ clothing subscription boxes feature personal stylist services, but even with a fashion expert on your side, it’s impossible to know whether clothes will work for your child until you open the box. We prioritized services with excellent customer service reputations and hassle-free return policies.

 

That's it for our list of the best kids' clothing subscriptions of 2022! Have you tried any of these kids' boxes before?

In a nutshell? I'm a bit of a walking contradiction!

I love traveling the world and stepping out of my comfort zone, but I can also be a complete introvert and will be totally happy hanging out at home with my family for days on end. I enjoy working out and going for runs or HIIT classes at the gym, but I also have no problem binging on a bag of cheetos and a glass of wine (which pairs surprisingly well together!). I love how I look dressed up and ready to hit the town, but am much more comfortable in a pair of sweats while watching The Mandolorian with my husband and two little boys. I love trying exotic foods and the different spices and textures that come with it, but my all-time-favorite meal is a juicy cheeseburger with fries. 

So, maybe I should just call myself well-rounded!? Whatever it is, I keep an open mind about everything and am always on the hunt for a new and exciting adventure!
