Clothes shopping with kids can be tricky: Getting them to the store, having them try on various items and finding a few cute, complete outfits is often an exercise in patience. Now, thanks to a new kids’ style delivery service called Kidbox, finding seasonal options for your kids – from toddlers to tweens – just got a lot easier.
Through an ongoing partnership, The Motherhood and Kidbox have asked a group of bloggers to set up profiles for their own kids to try out the service for their summer clothing needs. Blog and social media coverage will be appearing over the next couple of weeks, and a few members of the group have already shared what they love:
It’s not really a subscription – there are no upfront charges.
Jessica at A Parent in America outlined the Kidbox payment process: “Although I entered our payment info, your card will not be charged until you have personally decided which items you would like to keep. You have seven days to decide, and there is free shipping for families both ways. You can keep none of the clothing items, ship them back in the provided package and pay nothing, no problem. Or you can choose to keep one, two, etc. or all. Totally your world.”
It’s a great value for trusted brands.
For name brands including Seven for All Mankind, Lucky, Diesel, Reebok and more, Melissa at All Things Chic was impressed: “The pricing is totally amazing – if you keep the whole box, you pay $98. THAT’S IT! Which is a savings of $183 off list prices and $55 off Kidbox prices! HUGE savings! AND I DIDN’T HAVE TO GO TO THE STORE! SCORE! If you need to swap a size or return something, just put in the enclosed shipping pouch and return for free. Easy peasy.”
It’s tailored for the season, your geographic location, your child’s personality and more.
Parents and kids both have ideas about the types of clothing that will work, from color preferences to hem length to what “winter” means in, say, southern California vs. Wisconsin. Jennifer at Double Duty Mommy noted, “What makes Kidbox different? They ask you questions about your kid! So simple, right? I could not believe how detailed every page was, so I was confident knowing the clothes I trusted Kidbox to send my daughter fit her style and my Mama Bear rules.”
It’s a chance to do good while dressing your kid.
Kidbox is on a mission to clothe kids in need and help parents and kids give back. Jennifer at The Suburban Mom shared, “Kidbox donates a clothing item for every box sold. The coolest part is that you and your child get to decide where that donated item goes. When you decide to keep your entire box, you and your child can choose between sending that clothing item to children in military families, children facing poverty to children living in foster care. It’s a great way to start a conversation with your children about giving back.”
It offers surprise and delight.
In describing the box her daughter received, Jessica at A Parent in America said, “Not only did it contain crazy-cool clothes, it was packed with presents and goodies for her! She received an activity book, letter stickers, crayons and a ‘surprise egg ball’ that she unwound to reveal three Cracker Jack-style prizes inside.”
