Oh guys, I couldn’t resist.
Somehow I stumbled across an ad for Kidpik….an online subscription box for kids fashion.
….can you see where this is going?
I signed up for Jenna. Of course I did. After I checked out the site and read that most pieces are in the 12 dollar range, it didn’t seem like such a bad deal, not to mention the 30% discount for keeping every item.
It’s quick and easy to sign up. A simple style profile to complete online, and we were all set for our fashion box to arrive.
It came today!
We wasted no time opening the box, and Jenna loved seeing a personalized message for her inside, along with some fun things to try on.
I actually didn’t have amazingly high expectations for this box, it was more curiosity to see what they would send. I have to say I was surprised because they sent things I really wouldn’t have purchased on my own, but I found really cute on my daughter. Of course I did…
Jenna loved everything, and found nothing too scratchy or tight. She loved twirling in the dress, the bright colors of the clothes, and the soft hairbands with cute flowers to accessorize with.
I loved that the pants had an adjustable waist, and also gave bonus points for the extras in the box for Jenna….. some iron on patches and coloring pages for her to play with.
checking out…also very simple.
Things I love about Kidpik:
- NO styling fee! It’s free. Just pay for what you keep, you aren’t going to feel “stuck” buying at least one piece because you’ve invested a fee that you’ll lose if you don’t buy something.
- You can choose to get 4, 8, or 12 boxes per year… and cancel anytime with no strings. I signed up for 4 per year, so unless I change it, our next box will be for winter 😦
- It’s fun!! And knowing we aren’t paying for anything unless we want it keeps me interested in trying it again..no strings!
Right now, Kidpik is styling girls from size 4-14, they don’t have an option for boys yet. Given that my boys hate wearing anything but the basic athletic shorts and Tshirts, I don’t think that’s a problem for me. If Sammy saw a box of nice clothes for him to try on, he would be wondering why he’s being punished.
There you have it! If you’ve got a girl at home, and especially if you ALSO subscribe to a fashion box service yourself…… your little one might love it too. Mine did, and keeping her box was about $58 for all pieces with the discount. Not a big investment for the big smiles it produced 🙂
That is such a cool idea! My 6-year-old niece is such a little fashionista. She would love this.
I was thinking it would be a great gift to someone with a daughter…. $50 gift certificate and they can sign up and see if they like it. let me know if your niece does it–and what she thinks 🙂
