Like some of the most popular subscription boxes for adults, this clothing subscription box for kids—aptly named KIDBOX—starts with a fun and engaging quiz to help nail down exactly what kind of products you’ll be into. Questions include gender, age (this box is for babies through teens), style preferences and personality traits that help KIDBOX find the perfect clothes and accessories for you kiddo. Not only do you get custom-packed boxes of clothing, but the clothing is all high-quality and from brands you already love and recognize, like Adidas, 7 for All Mankind, Nanette Lepore and more at prices that average $11-$15 per item. If you’re used to buying designer kids’ clothes full price, that’s a steal!
