At the rate kids grow, it'd be easy to spend every day shopping for new shirts and jeans just to keep up. But no busy parent has time for that! Enter Kidbox, a subscription-based fashion box that sends personalized picks for your kid right to your front steps. And just announced today: Walmart is partnering with Kidbox on an exclusive stylebox that will include up to five items for only $48 if you buy the whole box.
There's officially no need to pass the toy aisle or face a dressing room tantrum to get trendy and affordable clothes you and your kid will love. To sign up for a Walmart Kidbox stylebox, head to Walmart.com and take a style quiz based on your kid's clothing taste. You'll submit their age (baby to 14), clothing size (0 to 14 for girls and 0 to 16 for boys), and style (are they sporty athletic, or modern casual?). Days later, a curated box will arrive at your front door. Pay for only what you want, no subscription or styling fees, and receive a deep discount if you keep the whole box.
I was offered to try out Walmart's Kidbox service early and selected a "city cool" stylebox for my 3-year-old nephew in size 4T. Now that spring finally hit New York City, I was excited to see what warm weather clothing the stylists would pick out for him and I was impressed by the selection that arrived.
When the box was delivered it looked like a typical Kidbox but did include the recognizable Walmart star logo on the front. Inside, I unpacked one pair of Silver Jeans brand straight leg jeans, one pair of Me + Henry brand shorts, one Me + Henry brand polo, one English Laundry brand polo, and one Andy + Evan brand T-shirt hoodie.
You'll see in the picture below that each piece of clothing in my nephew's stylebox was a shade of gray or blue. Sharing a color scheme makes it easy to mix and match the clothing to create several outfits.
Each piece of clothing was individually priced with the most expensive item being the hoodie costing $52. But if you buy the entire box, you'd only pay a total of $48 (for a box of five items, that's less than $10 a piece).
When you keep a full box, Kidbox also donates clothing to a child in need in partnership with Delivering Good. You can also reach out to customer service to exchange the size of any item you received.
Through Walmart's partnership with Kidbox, you can order one individual box for scheduled delivery or sign up for automatic shipments tied to seasons, holidays or back to school. (Imagine no more mall trips for back to school!)
“Over the last year, we have significantly expanded our portfolio of kids’ fashion brands as part of our broader effort to establish Walmart.com as a destination for fashion," said Denise Incandela, head of fashion, Walmart U.S. eCommerce, in a press release. "Our partnership with KIDBOX enables us to round out our offering with additional national and premium kids’ brands."
I'd say this partnership is a definite win for parents.
