Ella & Ava's Kidpik Box Review!

As a kid, my parents encouraged me to develop my own personal style. I have "fashion memories" starting at about age three of what I wore - and even shopping and choosing my own clothing. While I still have veto power over what my girls wear, I let them style themselves and usually I'm pretty impressed. I love Ava's colorful mismatched looks and Ella's teenage vibes. Akiva is very boy and just wears whatever clean shirt and whatever clean pants (sometimes not so clean LOL) he can find. Every child is different and should be able to express themselves their own way. As clothing mavens (like their momma!) my girls were super excited when Kidpik gifted them boxes for us to review.

Kidpik is a monthly subscription box for girls in sizes 4-14. You fill out a style profile to reflect the child's personality and then they send you a curated box of about 7 items right to your doorstep. My girls have pretty similar profiles and I have to say I was impressed that they sent them coordinating boxes instead of identical matching ones. They have free shipping & returns and easy exchanges. You can choose to have these boxes sent to you either 4, 8, or 12 times a year. Keep what you want (you get 7 days to decide) but if you choose to keep the whole box you get a 30% discount. You can cancel or pause your subscription at any time so it's a fun way to treat your girls for pretty reasonable prices. Each piece comes out to an average of $12 (after discount) which is about what you would spend at Target or a mall store on a similar piece.





The girls couldn't wait to tear into their boxes! We got them right before we headed out the door to my brother's house so the whole car ride was filled with anticipation. You can see abridged unboxing videos on Ella's Instagram here and here.





Their favorite looks were probably Ava's floral dress and Ella's floral skirt (see, coordinating not matching!) and they actually needed new denim jackets. They loved decorating them with the colorful pins that were included. Their shoes (also gifted) are actually from Nina Kids Shoes and are now on sale! You can select to include shoes in the kidpik boxes but I chose not to because my girls already have so many from my penny hunting days and Nina.

Ella's box included:
  • Denim jacket
  • Pink dress
  • Peach tee
  • Floral skirt
  • Pink dress
  • Yellow sweatshirt
  • Pink tanktop
  • Pins
  • Bracelets (she liked Ava's better so she kept stealing hers)

Ava's box included:
  • Denim Jacket
  • Floral dress
  • Yellow tee
  • White skirt
  • Pink sweatshirt
  • White tanktop
  • Pins
  • Bracelet





  • Overall fit was pretty good - other than Ava's white skirt which was HUGE. If the box wasn't gifted I probably would have sent it back for an exchange but I just pinned it and she'll wear it when she's bigger. Everything of Ella's is size 8 or 10 and Ava's is 7 or 8. You can leave a review on the website but I wish there was a place to rate each individual piece - or include notes on your account. I input Ava's size as 7 for skirts and this skirt was an elastic waist 7/8 that ran big. She can only do a 7/8 if the waist was adjustable or it ran small. My girls are super skinny but on the tall side so often we size up for the extra length. Clothing shopping for little kids can be just as tricky as it is for adults - so it's really great that kidpik offers free returns and exchanges.







    I love that kidpik has so many cute pieces that can easily be mixed in with their own wardrobe. For an outing to Great Adventure they wore their new sweatshirts and tank tops with their own jeans. Mommy tip - if you're going to crowded place with littles, always dress your kids in bright colors and take a quick cell pic when you get there. That way if they get lost they are easy to spot and you have a picture to share with security. Been there, done that...





    Ella actually just pulled out her "Super in all Way" tee the other day and styled it with her thrifted Converse and $1.50 shorts from Once Upon a Child. Secondhand clothing for kids is such a great way to save money. So often kids wear things just a couple times before growing out of them - I often thrift kids stuff still with tags on. If you live near Bergen County, NJ they actually just opened a new OUAC store in Paramus and their grand opening is TODAY at 10am! If you live nearby come say hello - I'll be there with my girls this morning :)

    Once Upon a Child
    777 Rte 17 S
    Grand Opening July 6th
    Paramus, NJ 07652

    As for weekly sample sale picks - nothing new to add to last week's list seen here. Don't worry, sample sales will start picking up again at the end of summer/early fall. Right now, you can enjoy the department sales markdowns. I'll be sure to give you guys a heads up if anything else pops up!

    Hope you're all having a great summer!

  3. Omg this is too cute! It's like Stitch Fix for kids which I love. I have two girls as well and this sounds perfect for them. I love that denim jacket and how the looks are coordinating but not twinning. My girls are like yours where they have a voice in what they want to wear and it is harder and harder for me to force them to wear something. They both have their individual styles and I think this box is so perfect for them especially at the price point. I need to check them out! Thanks for letting me know! xoxo, Christine

  5. This idea for a kids clothing subscription box is really cool. I've never heard of such service before and wish they would do that for younger kids too! Maybe when my kid gets older, i can start her a sub from KidPik haha. Also it would be great for them to add a way to review individual pieces or a note to add your opinion. But other than that, the boxes Ella and Ava got look great! Love their coordinating pieces, so cute!

  8. This box reminds me of StitchFix but for kids!! I love that the kids can use their own style to decide what box of clothes will come. My kids haven't gotten picky yet, but I would def look into this service when they are a little older.

  17. Love the idea of kids clothing subscription box. Now I wish I had a girl instead of a boy:) Both outfits are so darn cute and your girls are adorable. I bet they must be very fashionable just like mamma :) Even though Ava's white skirt is a bit big on her, don't worry she will grow so fast before you know it. Believe me! I have a god daughter though and will check it out now and surprise her. She loves everything pink.
    Thanks for sharing!

  18. Haha, I got to start by not picking on Akiva's sense of style. Maybe he's just rocking normcore at the moment? And he does take the best pictures! :) As a child my parents encouraged me to be creative in any way possible and that included clothing as well. I wore the most outrageous (weird) clothes already as a 4-year-old (I remember a pair of white pantyhoses I really wanted, I gotta ask my mom why she allowed me to go to kindergarten in those now that I come to think of it).
    As for the Kidpik box I think it's an absolutely lovely idea and I think they should develop it for boys as well so boys could experiment a bit too from an early age so their to go store won't be GAP in the future. The outfits look so cute on your girls, but my faves are probably the floral ones too actually. :)
    Love,
    Thomas

    1. Aww thanks Thomas! And I'm totally laughing at the thought of little Thomas in white pantyhose LOL. As a parent it's so important to let your kids think independently so kudos to your mom!

  19. The girls look like they have so much fun unboxing and the pieces in the boxes are so pretty and colourful which is really cheerful. I didn't know that there was subscription boxes for kids and this is such a wonderful idea!
