We received our first Stitch Fix kids boxes this week and we were all so excited to see what they sent! This is my new favorite way to get quality, stylish clothes for my kids!

My kids were SO EXCITED when I told them they would be getting their own Stitch Fix boxes. They have seen me getting my own fixes for a long time, and know how much fun it is to get packages just for them in the mail.
Stitch Fix just added kids to their styling options (they already have fixes for women, men, maternity, and plus sizes). Until this week, the service was by invitation only, but they opened up Stitch Fix Kids to everyone this week!
I’m not sure if you know this, but shopping with kids can be, um, a little stressful. I know, I know. Shocking. But it’s true.
I may go into the experience with rose colored glasses, thinking that we are going to bond over cute clothes and fitting rooms. But even if everything starts well, it usually ends with at least one bad attitude, either a baby or toddler crying, or at the very least, a lot less energy all around.
Honestly, though, I can make it through shopping trips with the kids. We do it all the time. But there are other things we all would rather do. We are all busy, and would rather spend our time out at the park, or zoo, or Costco (my favorite kind of shopping)…
The point is, I am more than happy to hand over clothing shopping to stylists and the postal service. Especially if the clothes are just as reasonably priced as some of our favorite stores.
Stitch Fix Kids Unboxing & Review #1
Box 1 :: 8-Year-Old Boy
- Brady Slim Leg Pant :: $38
- Fleix Ultra Flex 5 Pkt Slim Denim :: $20
- Robbie Linen Woven Top :: $18
- Robbie Madras SS Top :: $18
I specifically asked for the stylist to send button-up shirts for church. My son and I both loved what they sent! I especially appreciate how seasonally appropriate they are– short-sleeve and lightweight.
Stitch Fix also sent two pairs of pants, both slim fit and long, which is perfect for my tall and long kid!
VERDICT :: KEEP!
- Tailor Vintage Paulie Graphic Pkt Tee :: $14
- Tailor Vintage Jordan Stretch Poplin Cargo :: $20
I LOVE this t-shirt– both the color and the print. It wasn’t long before my husband and son were identifying the types of fish on the shirt. My son was a big fan of the shorts, too. The first thing he did when he pulled the shorts out of the box was to count the pockets, and he was happy about the elastic waist that wouldn’t slip on his slim body.
VERDICT :: KEEP
- Burnside Connor Hybrid Swim Short :: $20
- Walnut & 39th Ryder SS Graphic Tees :: $12 each
On his style profile, I checked that my son loves science and animals, and that his favorite colors are red, black, and green. The t-shirts sent were definitely a hit.
I really like the second pair of short they sent as well. The shorts are lightweight and quick dry, which is perfect for my active boy this summer.
VERDICT :: KEEP
Much to my son’s excitement, we decided to keep everything in his box. As I was totaling the pieces I definitely wanted to get (the button-up shirts, jeans, and khaki pants), it made sense to keep everything and take advantage of the 25% off discount. This made all 10 items in his box $118.
Not too bad for his first fix!
Box 2 :: 4-Year-Old Girl
- Leota Mackenzie Skater Dress :: $30
- Moon & Stars Gracie T-Shirt Dress :: $16
- Kate Spade Brea Confetti Heart Dress :: $38
My daughter was enthusiastic about the first two dresses. They were lightweight, soft, and felt VERY comfortable. The third dress wasn’t as big of a hit since it was “hard to get over my head”.
The prices were a little high for everyday dresses (except for the middle dress). If we had decided to keep everything, then the discount would have made them more reasonable, but…
VERDICT :: SEND BACK
- Kate Spade Eloise Graphic Tee & Metallic Skirt :: $42
- Design History Kayla Purse Tee :: $20
- Love Glam Girl Eva Graphic Swing Tee :: $14
- Design History Cameron Lace Pull-On Short :: $22
Not going to lie, I got a little excited when I saw that pleated gold skirt in the box…so cute! I also really like the blue heart shirt that goes with it. However, the price is a little too high.
The other two t-shirts weren’t my favorite. The fit and the colors were not the best for us. The shorts are super adorable, and would be a definite keeper with the discount.
VERDICT :: SEND BACK
- Capelli New York Becca Pom Sneaker :: $18
- Miss Selfie Erika Varsity Bomber Jacket :: $34
I saved our favorites for last! Pink and sparkles are my daughter’s favorite! The shoes fit and are a super reasonable price (very similar to what I would find at Target).
The jacket is super cute and my daughter loves it. I’m still trying to make a final decision, and whether or not to get the next size up if we do keep it.
VERDICT :: KEEP & UNDECIDED
- Capelli New York Tia Fleece Lined Leggings- 2 Pack :: $18
I didn’t take a picture of the leggings because of how they were packaged. The leggings were cute and looked to be high quality, but it just wasn’t what we needed right now.
VERDICT :: SEND BACK
Overall, my daughter’s box was cute, but too expensive. The few higher priced items made the total cost of the box too expensive, even with the 25% off discount. I plan to make a note about not spending so much on dresses and skirts with the hopes that future boxes will be more affordable. There are several items I would have considered if the discount had been a possibility.
Out of the ten items sent, we are definitely keeping one and possibly keeping another item! I’m also planning on scheduling a box for the fall.
Stitch Fix Kids Review
We are all very excited about getting future Stitch Fix boxes. When I first heard that Stitch Fix was going to be doing kids boxes, I was a little skeptical that it would be for us.
However, our boxes and the others I have seen on the SF Facebook group are generally very reasonably priced. Not only that, they’re full of variety and cute clothes.
As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, shopping for clothes with kids isn’t always (or ever) easy. There are so many elements that require cooperation and patience– picking out the clothes, trying on the clothes, calculating the costs and finding deals– and these elements can quickly take the fun out of the experience.
We all genuinely enjoyed getting the kids’ fixes this week. The stress was removed shopping, and we had plenty of time to try clothes on, and I had plenty of time to do the math and figure out what we wanted.
It was a great way to have fun and connect with my kids, and of course, it was an easy way to add to their wardrobes.
If you want to sign your kids up for their own fixes, you can sign up on Stitch Fix’s page and fill out style profiles for them to help you get just what they need/want!
