Limited Edition Star Wars KidBox
KidBox is one of the newest subscription boxes I wanted to try for my son. I love various beauty boxes and pet boxes for myself, so I decided to order something that my boys would also like and look forward to.
KidBox is full of fashionable surprises
My 5 year old is very active and inquisitive, it’s hard to keep up with him, and so I am always on the lookout for new activities and new clothes for him to roam outside exploring. I don’t always want to invest my time and money searching for both of these necessities and that’s why I would love to find a good subscription box for that. We are always enjoying our Toucan Box from England, but also wanted to try something local that includes fashion apparel for kids.
Full list of KidBox contents
I looked around and found KidBox, which sounded interesting. I like how they advertise a team effort to create a nice selection of apparel that would make our shopping life easier. I imagined my son would be way happier to open a box at home with new clothes and some activities than to go all the way to Walmart or Target and spend a long time looking for stuff and trying it on. What 5 year old wouldn’t love that?
One KidBox can seriously replenish any closet
There is one more thing – KidBox operates with a mission. If you keep the entire box of fashion choices that you get, they will donate clothes for kids from needy families. You can even choose where to donate and feel good about participating in KidBox’s goal of helping kids. It’s been a million donations so far.
Fashionable choices for little kids from KidBox
The way it works is you get 1 box per season and either keep all of it, send some stuff back, or send everything back. Shipping is always free and so are the returns. When you first start, you and your child will have to answer a few fun quiz questions to help the team behind KidBox select items for you that you would enjoy.

When it comes to price, the box is not the cheapest around, but could be worth it. If you keep the entire box with 6-8 items, you will pay $98 + tax. This translates into about $15 per item. Baby box has 5-6 items and costs $68 or $12-$13 per item.

Perfect shirts for spring from KidBox
There are too many brands to mention them all. Long story short, I loved the idea with the message behind it and decided to order not one, but two boxes.
KidBox for kids is full of fashionable surprises
This review is about the first one, Star Wars themed.
The Story of each box is included
My son loves everything Star Wars, which must come from his older brother, so we were pretty excited to get our first KidBox delivery with everything Star Wars.
Star War theme for little fans from KidBox
Unfortunately we were kind of disappointed with our first box, even with all the Star Wars things in it. We ended up sending it back, the quality or materials and clothing design just wasn’t impressive enough. This is what came in our first KidBox:
Alphabet sticker activity from KidBox
- ABC stickers. The letters are all capital, but come in different sizes. Could be a short fun activity.
Little surprise ball for unwrapping from KidBox
- A red ball that is wrapped in many layers of paper and can be unwrapped to reveal some surprises. We didn’t un-wrap it.
Little craft page from KidBox
- Scribble issue of spring 2020 with a coloring page that has butterflies, flowers, and birds.
Star Wars fashion from KidBox
- Star Wars Logo Falcon Hoodie for $45 retail price. The hoodie was synthetic and a little big for us. Nothing special about it.
Star Wars themed Shirt from special edition KidBox
- Boys Storm Trooper Top for $35 retail. This top was the only one item that we liked and could’ve kept, but since we were sending everything back, we included this one too.
Fleece pajama top from KidBox
- Boys Star Wars Fleece PJ Set - $38. It’s two pieces and made of thick fleece, which we never wear while sleeping. I like organic cotton on the body, but could let my son wear fleece outside, when it’s cold. In addition to poor material quality, the set looked very cheap, with wide pants and no style whatsoever. My son wasn’t very impressed either.
Fleece pajama bottoms from KidBox
It was an interesting experience, but we didn’t have to think long to decide that sending it back was the best choice. We packed it and shipped it back for free. The second box was a better value for the money for sure, but that story is in the next review.
