Say you have a girl who is obsessed with clothes, particularly designer labels. Say you have a girl who loooves to go to the mall; you, not so much. Say you hear about a new service, Kidbox, that delivers personalized, seasonal boxes of clothing to girls (sizes 2T to 14) and boys (sizes 2T to 16). You get six to seven items per box for $98—or you pay just for what you keep, and send back the rest. Also cool: The company has a social mission at its core. Thanks to a partnership with K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers. Kidbox outfits a child in need for every box purchased. And would you like to try it? Yes, please!
The most phenomenal boxes of clothing arrived in summer and fall, with prices way below what any of these items would usually cost. Sabrina wanted to share about her experience, so over to her.
I recently got some clothes from Kidbox. It is a website where you can choose a whole variety of clothes. You actually don’t know exactly which clothes you’re getting, but you can pick your favorite style. I chose Cool + Casual.
You can also say what you don't like, like big logos or dots, tell them what colors you don't like, and where you usually shop, like at Gap or Target. And you can even say what your personality type is, like artistic or quirky, and what clothes you need more of like tops or school and weekend clothes.
They say that for every box you buy, they dress a kid who needs help, so I think it’s an excellent way of spending your money. Also because they have your favorite brands at lower prices! The stuff that your mom may not want to buy you because usually it's a lot of money.
When the box came to my house I was so excited I immediately opened the package. There were cool letter stickers that you could use on notebooks and stuff. And there was a note from a girl named Jessica who is the stylist. That would be a cool job.
The first thing that caught my eye was this sweatshirt because it is so cute! It's my favorite brand, Butter, and my mom never buys it for me because she says it's a rip-off. My mom said $35 was a great price. I wear it a lot.
Next I opened a pair of Limited Too shirts in black and white with long sleeves that are good for winter. I can wear the shirts under stuff or alone. Then I pulled a pair of Kensie dark jeans out the box and they were the ones I needed and wanted! I was so happy, I wore them to school the next day.
This is a Lucky shirt with some cute patterns, and jeggings that were in the package. They are by Free Planet and they have braided pockets.
Finally I got this pink top with sparkles. It is a brand called 7 For All Mankind, Mommy said it is expensive. I can wear this shirt any time of year. I'm wearing it with the Kensie jeans.
If you need to get bigger sizes you can just send stuff back for free. The clothes are good quality, so they last a long time although I am sure I will need more soon and then I hope we can get another Kidbox.
Kidbox is launching a Kids Board of Directors for kids ages 6 to 15. Parents fill out an online questionnaire here, then record a short video with their kid answering the question, "How can young people change the world and what am I doing to help?" Upload the video to YouTube, then send the link and application to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15. Kids selected will attend an all-expense paid two-day conference and workshop in New York City, and will get to work with Kidbox team members on a project such as designing an item of clothing. The Kids Board will also take part in video conferences, and represent the company as local ambassadors for social good.
Disclosure: We received two Kidboxes to check out, but opinions and clothing enthusiasm are all our own.
