Let me introduce you to Kidbox clothing – the first kids’ style box that combines cool brands, meaningful savings and a mission to clothe children in need.
As a parent, it’s important to me to teach my children about giving back, though we know that just talking about it isn’t enough. To create a generation of kind, generous kids, we need to model that behavior for them. So we reuse, recycle, and donate our time, goods and (when we can) money.
And as a parent, I also appreciate any tools that help save time. So I was seriously intrigued when I heard about a brand-new clothing delivery service for kids called Kidbox.
What is a Kidbox?
After taking a quick style quiz, Kidbox stylists select 6-7 items that uniquely match your kid’s style. Then they’ll send a box full of stylish pieces to your child. Each box is tailored for the season and where you live. You can try on everything at home, and you’ll have 7 days to decide what items you want to keep. You can keep the whole box for only $98. Boxes are made for boys and girls ages 4-14 (sizes 4 to 16). Toddler boxes are also available!
Kidbox ship five times a year including: spring, summer, back to school, fall, and holiday. They know that kids grow fast and their styles evolve. They’ll alert you before the next season’s box is scheduled to ship so you can update your preferences or opt out.
7 Reasons to Choose Kidbox Style Delivery Service
1. You’ll have a place to find cool brand names for your kids at a big savings. One box costs only $98 (for 6-7 items), which works out to about $14-15 per item on average. The tags on the box I purchase showed that all items were valued at $19-$24. The more items you keep, the less expensive the item!
2. You’ll get free shipping and free returns. You can exchange items for a different size at no charge.
3. There truly are no obligations. This is the difference between a subscription service and the Kidbox style delivery service. Though Kidbox ships seasonally, they will ping you before the next season’s box is scheduled to ship so you can check your kid’s size, changing style, or opt out of receiving it at all.
4. Your credit card is not even charged until you decide which items you are going to keep.
5. It’s a way for kids (and their parents) to discover new clothing brands and styles. Each Kidbox contains clothing from a variety of brands, such as: Diesel, 7 For All Mankind, US Polo Association, Reebok, Roxy, Free Planet, Lucky Denim, Limited Too, Kensie, and many more.
6. You’ll save on time spent shopping for clothing for your kids. (And if you are anything like me, this on it’s own is a HUGE plus!)
7. You’ll have the opportunity to talk with your kids about social responsibility, and help them give back. Whenever you keep the whole box, they’ll donate an outfit to a child in need. What’s more, they invite you and your child participate in helping us choose where to donate, and supporting their mission to bring clothing to over 1 million children.
8. You’ll have a chance to win a year of clothes! Kidbox is giving away a year of clothes to one winner each month, and they’ll give five outfits to children in need. Here’s how to enter: Take a photo or video of your unique kid unpacking happiness—opening their Kidbox, a special gift they received, or sharing a special gift with a friend—and share it on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #UnpackHappy, #Kidbox and @Kidbox (Instagram) or @KidboxFamily (Facebook). Each month Kidbox will select one (1) winner to receive an entire year of Kidbox clothing for free (5 seasonal boxes of $98 each), and they will donate an additional 5 outfits to children in need. They will invite the winner to help select which cause to send the donations to as part of their Kidbox Cares initiative. You can enter once per day each month for extra chances to win!
As for my first experience with Kidbox, I’ll say this much. My son is VERY PICKY about his clothing, only wearing athletic wear items and soft fabrics. Frankly, I assumed that we would be returning at least a couple of items the box or requesting different ones that fit his needs. When the Kidbox clothing arrived I felt almost as if they had come to the store with us, as every item was in line with his tastes and preferences. Yet these were not items that I’ve actually seen in the stores, so it was also great to know that he won’t be wearing the same clothes as all the other kids at school and camp. Though there was one pair of shorts that we debated returning for a smaller size, we ended up keeping every single item in the box.
My son also loved knowing that because we did keep all of the items, a child in need would also relieve a new outfit. It’s our way of walking the talk, helping to create a generation of kind, generous kids who understand what it means to pay it forward.
