Rumor has it, KidPik was inundated at their launch with box requests. We signed up in early March, and my daughter started asking for her box about two days later.
Fast forward to the second week of April, and her box arrived - and it was worth the wait!
She wanted to love it all - and we got pretty close. KidPik was also very true to their word - they emailed at the end of March apologizing for the wait, and promising us something extra in the box. While Maggie was hoping for a Kindle (HA!), she really likes the extra shirt that was in for the wait. While it's our first box and I can't be sure, there was also a cute bag with three iron-ons that looks like it's their 'regular' bonus for the kids.
Let's see the outfits!
The pants are five-pocket Knit Pants in a rich color called blue ribbon. They are styled like jeans, but buttery soft material like stretch pants. She says they're a little big, but I'm guessing most of her other leggings are a bit small. These had a full retail price tag of $14.50.
I'm stating these as regular prices because if you buy the whole box, you get a 30% discount on it all! Shipping to return anything you don't like is free, and a bag is included for this purpose.
Maggie was very excited to try on this Floral Embellished Scuba Dress ($32.50), but it ended up being the first thing to go in the 'send it back' pile. The material is weird, for lack of a better word. The bottom doesn't even need to be hemmed, as the 'scuba' material is like a foam. It makes it feel heavy for a summer dress. When I showed it to hubby, he didn't think it was that odd, but it wasn't something Maggie wanted to wear, and I agree with her.
Interestingly enough, the skirt in this picture is also called a Flower Scuba Skirt ($15.50), which leads me to believe the fabric is similar to the odd pink dress. I didn't really notice, and Maggie has the skirt on at school today, so I can't check again. She loves the skirt, although I've already said about five billion times - "It's a skirt, not a skort. Sit like a lady!!" It's still early enough in the spring here in Michigan that she's wearing leggings with it today. Not sure if that will give her a chance to create good habits, or a good excuse not to worry about them. LOL
The shirt was in her 'send back' pile just because it didn't make much of an impression. It's the Love Tee in white ($12.50).
Also in this pic are the Glitter Braided Headwrap ($1.50) that she said she didn't need (mostly because she usually doesn't wear anything in her hair), and the Pandora Metallic Gladiator sandals ($27.50), which she LOVES the look of. One day of wear convinced her that they make her feet sweat, so I'm not sure how much she'll actually choose them. They came in an very cute mini-backpack style cloth bag.
Last but not least was the Lace Trim Swing Top, which I'm assuming was free for the wait. There is no price for it on the item description sheet. Luckily she also loved it. It will go great with her many leggings, and I love the swing style for covering her butt in leggings and similar styles like the pants from earlier (shown again in this picture).
Overall, we had a GREAT experience with KidPik. As I mentioned, there's a discount for purchasing the whole box! For Maggie to get the things she really liked (skirt, pants, sandals, gingham shirt, and swing top) would have been $73 at regular retail. When I asked her, she said she'd wear the t-shirt and headband that she didn't love if they were here. So we are getting the whole box for $83.65 and selling or donating the pink dress. Of course she's ready for another box ASAP, but we did shopping the old-fashioned way when we got ready for a Florida trip in February, so we'll probably wait til closer to fall.
Have you had a great (or horrible) experience with a subscription box? Let us know about it!
