Recently we tried out the new Stitch Fix box for kids! To my shock, my son didn’t want to do an “unboxing” video with me, but he was excited to try all the clothes on and take some pictures! I ended up doing the video myself and if you’re interested you can check it out here on our facebook page.
If you’re not familiar with Stitch Fix, it’s a subscription box for clothes and accessories. You fill out a style profile with your likes/dislikes, measurements and how you like things to fit. You can decide how often to receive the boxes, or just order them once and awhile when you feel like it! There is a “styling” fee, which is later applied to anything you decide to buy. Once you get the box you try everything on, keep what you like and send back what you don’t want in a prepaid shipping bag! It started out just for women, but now they have boxes for men and they just started them for kids as well! If you want to try it out, use our link and you’ll get $25 off your first box!
When I get Stitch Fix boxes for myself they usually come with about five items to try on. With the kids box it had ten items! I guess since the clothes are smaller, they can fit more in the box! Most of the clothes were between $12-$20 with one pair of pants being a little more.
The first thing he tried on was these comfy sweatshirt material pants, which he loved! They are very soft and comfy and the knees are reinforced so they seem pretty well made. We ended up keeping them for fall! He also loved this animals in a car tee, so we kept that, too.
Next he tried on this dinosaur tee. Although it was cute, he decided not to keep it because it kind of looked like pajamas. I tried to let him decide which things he wanted to keep or send back, and thankfully he didn’t keep any of the stuff that I really didn’t like!
We both really loved this mint with blue striped tee so we kept this, too! I will say that basically all of the clothes we got, with the exception of the sweatpants, were just a little too big. I said he was a 5/6 and most of the clothes were 6 or 6/7. I decided the tees would be okay if they were a little on the big side because he can wear them for longer, but some of them were pretty baggy and we didn’t keep those! I definitely gave them feedback about that!
This hooded tee shirt was super baggy and just way too big. Even though you fill out your sizes, it can be hit or miss sometimes with them! It also just wasn’t a style either of us liked and the saying on the arms was hard to read. We sent this one back.
He loved this soccer shirt so we kept that! I was really looking forward to these jeans because they were really nice but they just didn’t fit him exactly right, and they were a little on the pricey side as far as kids clothes go. We ended up sending them back and getting some jeans at Target instead!
Last, he tried on this long sleeve baseball tee and the green shorts. The shorts were huge and kept falling off of him, so those were definitely a no! The shirt is cute, but he already has a few similar types of shirts so we decided not to keep that either.
Overall I felt like this box was a success even though we didn’t like or keep everything. We did keep three tee shirts that he loved and a pair of pants! If you keep everything you get a 25% discount off the total, which is great, but that wasn’t going to happen with those giant shorts and hooded tee shirt being part of the box! One thing to note is that when you check out you can give feedback on each item and even write comments about what you got. I think this really helps so you can get better stuff next time, especially if you’re really honest with your feedback!
