Last month, I ordered a summer box for my son at Kidbox. He needs more summer clothes because summer last about 10 months here and it was well into the high 80s. We go through shorts and t-shirts like crazy and have been since January. My son needed more 2T since that is the size he is in or about to be in(depending on brand).
Here is how it works:
- Go to the website and fill out a style survey. They ask for things such as colors to avoid, what do you need more of, what will they not wear, their style.
- They only ship out 5 times a year but you can skip a season if you would like.
- Review the box. You have 7 days before you are billed. If you keep everything, it is $98. If you keep only a few pieces, they offer it at a discount.
- Ship back what you do not want.
- If you kept it all, pick a charity you want Kidbox to donate clothes to.
While it is not the cheapest, it is easy which is good during the school year. We normally shop at Target, Carter’s and Gymboree for him and usually on sale but this introduces us to different brands and styles.
So it comes with a return label for size exchanges or things you do not like. It also comes with a card telling you everything you go, how much it originally cost and what it would cost you if bought separate. Sorry for crayon scribbles but my son was coloring. It also comes with crayons because the box is white and looks like a coloring sheet and a sheet of stickers. All the information comes in a clear zip bag which we now use to hold wet kid swimsuits while camping.
So the items we got going left to right are (I am putting their discount price):
Art + Aden Boys Short Sleeve Henley Tee in white $20
This is white shirt with blue sleeves. The tee is soft and cute but looks short for my boy who is pretty tall but a stick (trust me, I feed him).
7 for All Mankind Boys 2pc Set with Jeans and Tee in grey $42
This is the ombre shirt and jeans. I love this outfit! I cannot wait for him to wear it this fall when it cools to the 70s. This was my favorite thing in the box.
Penguin Graphic Teein blue $14
Blue T-shirt with the penguin. I love the colors as my son has blue eyes so I know they will brighten them up.
U.S. Polo Assn. Boys Drawstring Roll Up Pant in brown $18
As a family of campers/hikers/outdoors people, these will be perfect for when it is warm in the day but chilly at night.
Penguin Short Sleeve Henley in blue $18
Another blue top of bring out the color of my sons eyes. We have a wedding to go to this summer so it will be a nice top for the wedding. I think this was my husbands favorite item.
Losan Denim shorts $35
Not crazy about denim shorts for boys/men but it was cheaper to keep it then send it back.
So retail for everything would have $205, and with their prices $147 but since I kept everything it was only $98. Not too bad.
