Hi. My name is Lori, and I am addicted to subscription boxes.

We have tried so many subscription boxes in our family, many of which we still receive. We really like finding ways to make our lives EASIER. However, I think we also just really love being surprised with fun, new things! When I found out that there were kiddo clothing subscription boxes, just like Stitch Fix for me, I had to try it out!

If you have not ever heard of KidBox or given them a try, let me give you a little explanation. If you know all about it, skip below for our video and photo reviews for our three oldest kiddos!

KidBox is a subscription clothing service for kids from size newborn all the way to kids size 14. They provide their service to both boys and girls, and have both auto-ship boxes for each new season (Summer, Back to School, Fall, Winter, and Spring) and on demand boxes. Here is how it works:

  1. First, you register at and complete a style profile for your kiddo. You will select boy or girl, enter the age and normal size your kiddo wears in tops and bottoms, and then pick one of the 4 styles. You get to choose from Sporty Athletic, Classic Preppy, Modern Casual, or City Cool. Once you pick an overall style, you will be able to see sample outfits and click on the ones that would be in line with the style of your kiddo. Also in the style section is a place to enter things your kiddo will NOT wear like logos, button downs, stripes, tight clothes, denim or certain colors.
  2. The next section asks for a general selection of what you would like more of in your KidBox. For example, would you like more tops, more bottoms, trendy pieces, athletic wear, basics, school clothes, or weekend clothes. You will choose common stores you shop for your kiddo (ie. Gap, Kohls, Target, Nordstrom, etc.) and what makes them special (ie. are they shy, artistic, etc.)
  3. After you complete your style profile for your kiddo and order your shipment, you will receive a box with 6-7 items based on your selections. You have 7 days to review your box and decide what to keep.
  4. If you return the whole box, you pay nothing and shipping is free! If you keep the whole box, the cost is ALWAYS $98. If you choose to keep just certain items, you pay for those based on the invoice you receive with the box. If you need to exchange something for a new size, that is free too!
  5. A bonus of keeping the whole box is that your kiddo will get to pick a charity to donate an outfit to a child in need. We just loved this idea!

And that’s it! Fun, am I right!?!?

Our Back to School KidBox Review, Kinley, Age 7 ½

Kinley decided not to keep her whole box, and so we limited her to picking one item to keep. She decided that she really liked the studded leggings best, so those were her keep. I do think that it is a much better deal to keep the whole box instead of single items. Although everything is brand name [Bebe, DKNY, 7 for All Mankind, ME.N.U.], I don’t usually spend quite as much on clothing for my kiddos [or for myself usually!].

Our Back to School KidBox Review, Kaden, Age 6

Kaden loved his whole box and actually decided to keep the whole thing! For those interested in the brands included, we received items from Lucky Brand, 7 for All Mankind, Penguin, Frenchie Mini Couture, LRG, and Paper Denim & Cloth. Although a lot of days he likes to just wear athletic clothes, he also likes to look “cool”. I can already see him spending lots of time working on his hair and perfecting his outfits. We might be in trouble.

Our Back to School KidBox Review, Kamryn, Age 4

Kamryn also decided not to keep all the items in her box, and chose the embroidered tank as her one keep. She put it on, and I felt like she was a tiny me. I certainly wish I had one in my size! I thought the dress with the rabbit print was ADORABLE, but she wasn’t sold on it.

Would we KidBox again?

Ha, ha, ha…well…this is actually our third round of KidBox! The first time we did it just for the two oldest kids, but last time we included the three of them. And every other time we actually kept the whole box! So, although the pieces this time didn’t knock it out of the park, we would definitely do it again!

Have you tried KidBox? Did you have a good experience?  Do you have questions? Post them in the comments!

    Hi! Thanks for the review! For your girls, which “style” did you pick? (Preppy, City cool, sporty athletic, or modern casual)? I feel like my daughter is all of these things! Maybe you can’t go wrong with any of the styles? What’s your experience?

      We picked modern casual, but I think you would get cute options with any of the choices!
