Stitch Fix Kids is here and we were thrilled when they sent us a complimentary box in exchange for this review. I am a huge fan of Stitch Fix for adults. It’s saved me so much time, stress and money by having clothing sent directly to me by a stylist. When it comes to kids clothing we are fairly frugal. I am blessed to have several friends that hand down their clothes to my kids. I spend money here and there but since my kids grow so fast I try not to splurge. Keep reading to find out what was inside our first Stitch Fix Kids box.
What is Stitch Fix Kids?
Stitch Fix for Kids is a kid clothing subscription box that can be sent monthly, quarterly or on demand. No subscription is required. Stitch Fix Kids offers kids clothing from 2T -14 years old. Prior to receiving a box, parents fill out a survey to describe their child’s personality, style, size and to set a budget. Parents can pick which type of clothing pieces they want to include or exclude in their box. For example, if your kid has a ton of shoes you can request that shoes are NOT included in your fixes.
How much is the Stitch Fix service?
There’s only a $20 styling fee per box which gets credited toward anything you keep—no subscription required. Clothing pieces typically cost $10-$35 per item. You will get 25% off when you keep the entire box! There’s no payment up front. Try on everything first, then pay for the items you want to keep online. Shipping the items back is free thanks to a prepaid envelope that’s included in the box.
What’s included in a Stitch Fix Kids box?
In each box, there are 8-12 handpicked items that are personalized to their style, size, and budget. We received our first box over the Christmas holiday. At first glance, I was pleasantly surprised how much thought went into the design and contents on the box. The box included ways to reuse it and even encouraged kids to submit their creative ideas to win a giveaway. The holiday stickers were a nice addition as well. Also included is a stylist note written to each child and a prepaid return envelope should items be returned.
Stitch Fix Kids Unboxing
The best part of this entire shopping experience is the fact that we don’t have to shop around a mall and everything is delivered to our doorstep. Opening the items together was super fun as well. Watch as my daughter opens them and provides hilarious and honest reviews of her Stitch Fix kids box. My favorite reaction of hers is when she opens the long-sleeved shirt with the LOVE heart on it.
Here’s our Stitch Fix Kids review: Call it beginners luck or the fact that our Stitch Fix stylist nailed it, but my daughter and I loved everything in the box. As a parent, I loved that it included outfits and items that could be mixed and matched with other pieces. Some of the pieces are expensive brands that I normally would not purchase for kids. However, the way the pricing is bundled it’s doable with our budget. Overall with the 25% discount this box cost me $225. That seems like a lot but given the fact I got a high-quality coat, boots and several outfits that can be mixed and matched it made sense. Not to mention the convenience of not having to go shopping with kids made it worth it. Keep in mind the $20 styling fee goes towards your balance. Also, if you refer your family and friends you both receive a $25 credit. Also, remember that you pick a budget per clothing category that fits your needs at the beginning of the process. That way, you don’t experience complete sticker shock if things are well above your budget.
What’s inside our box
To recap, our box included the following Stitch Fix outfits for kids:
- Western Chief – Cammi Glitter Rainboots
- Mia Chica – Stacie Taped Sleeve Pullover (Stitch Fix Exclusive)
- Persaya Girl – Kiley Twist Front Graphic Top
- Rumi + Ryder – Janine Pocket Fit and Flare Dress
- Osh Kosh – Amma Puffer Coat
- Studio V – Jaynee Skinny Jean
- BCBGirls – Seeta Legging Set
- BCBGirls – Cancity Tutu Legging Set
- Rumi + Ryder – Leah Knit Legging
- Persaya Girl – Jodie Ruched Sleeve Tie Skater Dress
My daughter’s favorites included the rainboots, the top with the heart on it and the Tutu Legging Set. Of course, I loved the Osh Kosh coat and jeans. It made sense for us to buy all the items to receive the 25% off discount. I always encourage everyone to try on everything no matter what your first impression is of the item. You may find yourself loving something that you initially did not like at first glance.
Two months later, do we love the items I bought? Was it worth it?
By “we” I mean my daughter. She is extremely picky when it comes to her clothes. The true test does she still wear the pieces It’s been two months since our Stitch Fix box and she wears most of the items on a weekly basis. They are holding up nicely. Sadly, she has not worn the dress yet with the pockets, but I blame that on the cold weather. I wish they made that dress in my size. Everything else she wears quite a bit especially the rain boots and coat since we have had bad weather lately.
Would I do this kids clothing subscription box monthly? No, I would not. However, I will continue receiving them as the seasons’ change for the essential items. There is no denying the quality of these pieces. They are so stinking cute. And so is my daughter of course!
