When this box of clothes arrived on our doorstep, Leyna was an immediate fan girl. She’s seen me get many a style box full of fashion for me before, and she was so pumped THIS one was for her.
The colorful box, filled with clothing from brands like Limited Too and Seven for all Mankind (along with a couple small toys, stickers and crayons) was sent to us by Kidbox. We are working together to tell you all what this kid’s style box service is all about, and I’m pretty sure a lot of you are going to LOVE it.
At the age of 5, she has serious opinions about her clothes. And this makes shopping with her equal parts adorable and fun/ tedious and frustrating. Unlike her older brother who will still let me dress him every day, she loves to be included, so when I sat down to fill out her Kidbox style profile, I made sure to have her join me.
She helped me choose her “colors to avoid.”
I really wish white would have been an option because life in the Krause family, but the white pieces they did send her are actually adorable enough to make me buy and use a stain stick.
We made sure to reject any denim jeans because Leyna does not do zippers and buttons on pants. I’m certain this is an aversion brought on by years of never actually being able to stuff her chunky butt into anything other than soft and very stretchy leggings.
And she chose her own style personality as Modern/Fab because pink twirly skirts, of course.
I went into this with zero expectations, but was really impressed by how much GREAT stuff was packed into that box for $98. These are high-end brands and really quality and durable pieces. At retail, even on sale, these would ring up for much more altogether. PLUS there is NO styling fee.
Leyna, of course, felt strongly about many of them – mostly good, but there was one dress she deemed “not pretty.” We could choose to send that one back, but I’m going to go ahead and keep it to either donate or see if she changes her mind… as she is wont to do. Plus, by keeping the whole box we get to help send new clothes to children in need. More on that further down.
You certainly don’t have to keep the pieces you or your child doesn’t like, though. Login to your account to let them know what pieces you’re returning, then put them in the prepaid shipping envelope they provide in the box and send them back. You won’t be charged for those.
Here are a few of the pieces she definitely loves.
What she does not love, as has already been established, is taking a ton of pictures for me.
Kidbox ships out boxes 5 times a year- spring, summer, back to school, fall and holiday. You can choose to have yours automatically shipped, but you don’t have to. OH! I think I forgot to mention that shipping is free, too!
The best way to keep up with when they are shipping new boxes is to subscribe to their newsletter.
Coolest part of this, I think, is that when you keep your Kidbox, they work with K.I.D.S/Fashion Delivers to provide brand new clothing to children in need. You have the option of choosing where those clothes go, too! Causes are always changing, sometimes directing to children affected by national disasters.
It’s a fantastic way to discuss giving with your child, and to give them some ownership over that. That part made ME a fan girl.
If you still have questions about how Kidbox works, or wonder if it’s a good fit for your family, they have a thorough FAQ page that should help.
I’ll end with this fun video I hired Leyna to help me with. Always hired, never bribed. Ha!
