Introvert or extrovert, video game fanatic or soccer star, no matter the personality or preferences there’s no denying that kids go through clothes really fast. Whether they’re staining their school clothes rolling down a grassy hill or steadily going through their robust onesie arsenal one blueberry or blowout at a time, it can feel like you’re constantly buying (and washing) clothes for your little one. And while there are some items that are a blast to shop for (tiny tuxedos and little dresses included), most of the time clothes shopping is just another item on your never-ending to-d0 list—which is why we’re all about baby and kids’ clothes subscription services.
While clothing subscriptions for adults have been around for a hot minute, options for baby and children’s clothes are growing in number and popularity, offering plenty of ways to tailor your picks according to your (or your opinionated kid’s) leanings and lifestyle in an easy way. Instead of realizing too late that your toddler has outgrown every single pair of pants he owns overnight, you can get ahead of the growth curve by automating your shopping with this convenient service. So whether you’re interested in building a more sustainably-sourced wardrobe for your child or just trying to save time, here are 11 stylish, customizable kids’ and baby subscription boxes to check out.
Eco-Conscious Onesies In Gender Neutral Colors
If sustainability is important in your household, then Cubbiekit is for you. Not only does it offer stylish, affordable baby clothes, but they also ensure that every item is made of GOTS-certified organic cotton. Start by sharing your child’s gender, size, age and location. From there, you’re able to select your little one’s (or your) favorite colors, subscribe (it’s $90 per box) and order. Before you know it, six adorable pieces will arrive at your doorstep (and be delivered automatically every time your kid is ready to size up).
Once your baby grows out of his teeny-tiny onesies and sweet shirts, just send them back to Cubbiekit to be upcycled into other clothing or donated to families in need. Everything is ethically crafted and works within a closed-loop model, meaning Cubbiekit doesn’t harvest new cotton to make clothes (you had us at: reducing landfill waste).
Vibrant Graphic Prints And Statement Pieces
Rockets of Awesome is wildly popular thanks to its fun way of offering personalized picks that help to capture your child’s unique style. After taking a one-minute quiz, you’ll view a personalized selection of clothing to approve or swap out. When your box arrives, your kid can try on the new outfits and send back whatever doesn’t suit her.
And once the clothes are outgrown, you can send them back for credit towards future deliveries. While the cost of the service depends on how much clothing you keep from the box, the styling fee per season is $20 (and credited towards anything you keep). The whole concept is a big time saver and, well, awesome.
A Fuss-Free Baby Wardrobe
While not technically a subscription box, the Reima Baby Box accomplishes the same thing—taking the guesswork out of buying infant clothing. It includes 17 pieces of gender-neutral baby clothing and accessories from the beloved Scandinavian brand. Consider it a capsule wardrobe for your little one, so you can focus on resting and soaking up the time with your newborn.
A Commitment-Free Subscription
Unlike other kids’ and baby clothes subscriptions, Stitch Fix actually doesn’t require a “subscription.” The company puts together a selection of clothing for your kiddo based on their style and fit preferences, and you buy what you want, when you want. The beauty of this model is that you won’t get clothes when you don’t need them—and you won’t need to spend hours scouring stores for the perfect truck shirt. If you’d prefer, you can even automate your deliveries and just pay for what you keep.
Head-To-Toe Outfit Options
What makes Kidpik stand out is that the brand includes an entire outfit beyond just clothing, including shoes and additional accessories. To get a personalized box for your child, you take a quick style quiz and select the frequency of your box delivery. From there, a stylist will curate three outfits for your little one and ship it out. You have a week to check it out and then keep what you want and return what you don’t. Simple, stylish and a major time-saver for busy parents and kids. And at an average of $98 if you keep a whole box worth of items, KidPik is also affordable.
Like its big sister brand Fabletics, Fabkids takes the effort out of finding clothes and shoes that your child will love. By paying a monthly subscription, you get 40% off all products sitewide and can either shop limited-edition monthly collections, with items specifically curated for your child or save your credits to spend later. Your $40 membership fee either rolls over or goes toward your purchases so you end up only shopping when you really need to.
Chic Looks For Mini Fashionistas
Baby fashionistas rejoice: If your child’s vibe is “Art Basel-obsessed,” “Preppy Parisian,” “Marie Kondo” or “Provence Vacance,” then Dopple is for you (and yes, those are actual style options on the website). To unlock your kid’s chic new wardrobe, simply take a style and budget quiz, wait for your drop of handpicked outfits to arrive at your doorstep, keep what you love and send the rest back.
The styling cost per delivery is $10, which is credited towards your purchases, and the site carries everything from Rylee + Cru to Stella McCartney, so it truly works for all budgets and tastes. It’s a quarterly service but you can pause or request the service at any time.
A Closet Staple Made Fun (And Easy)
Sure, socks may not be the most exciting part of an outfit, but we can all agree that kids outgrow them, lose them or destroy them much faster than we thought humanly possible. With Say It With A Sock’s kids’ subscription, you can have two sets of socks delivered to your door monthly for your kiddo. But these aren’t just regular socks; they’re fun socks. Seasonally appropriate, themed or zeitgeist-y, these are total conversations starters.
European Designers Delivered To Your Door
Like other services, Collective Child starts with a style quiz and ends with a box of curated outfits being sent to to your home. The difference with this company, however, is that you can opt in for a monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly delivery. The styling cost is $20, which goes toward anything you purchase, and sizes range from newborn to size 12Y. It’s also easy to use for multiple children in your household, so it’s a great option for families with more than one little one.
Sustainably Stylish Separates
Imagine that your best dressed friend gave your baby all of their hand-me-downs. That’s basically how Romp+Tumble works. A monthly subscription available for newborns up to size 3T, the service sends seasonally and size-appropriate clothes that are new or have been gently loved.
When your child outgrows them (or has worn them in too many Instagram pics), you can return your haul and get a replacement pack. A 22-piece box costs $70 a month, and if you keep half of it, it’s $35. Romp + Tumble includes tops, bottoms, onesies and PJs, and the brand focuses on organic and recycled cotton.
A Budget-Friendly Wardrobe
KidBox sets itself apart from the rest of this list due to its many, many options. Thanks to a wide range of sizes from newborn up to 16Y, you can select the right box for your child’s size and age without making a subscription commitment. While the brand curates seven seasonal boxes a year, you can opt in or out of each one and also choose your preferred shipping date. Plus, it’s one of the more affordable options: a baby box with five items is $68 and the price ranges up to $110 for 10 items for kids who wear sizes 2T to 16Y.
