Wittlebee Kids Clothing: March 2013 Box Review

NEW: Check our the latest Subscription Boxes Coupon Codes & New Subs post for a great Wittlebee promo!
My kids and I were excited to receive our Wittlebee box in the mail today, and it did not disappoint. For those of you who are not familiar, Wittlebee is a kids’ clothing club that, for $39.99 / month, sends you a box of six clothing items based on your child’s style profile and types of clothes needed. You can communicate specific “style notes” with the Wittlebee stylist building your box and from this month, you can select up to three items from your personal Showroom. I love that feature and enjoyed having the ability to select half of the pieces I was getting!

Now, to the box - I have been a subscriber for more than six months and while I skipped a couple of months, I've received enough boxes to know I do like this subscription a lot - and so does my 5-year old. This month I ordered a split box between my 5-year old girl and my almost 9-month old boy (I find this option really convenient). Take a look at what we received:
While I was familiar with the three items I had selected from my Showroom, once I saw the colors of the rolled-up clothes in the box, I knew we'd like everything. We've received a good mix of basics, as well as more uniquely styled and whimsical pieces. Here are the details:
Girl 6T outfit #1: a Wittlebee / Threadless T-shirt and a Butterfly Fashion Tutu in yellow (latter selected by me and my daughter). A girl can never have too many tutus and this one is of high quality - soft and with many layers. My girl loved it! The T-shirt is one of the basic pieces and while I was not too excited about it initially, my daughter said she really liked the picture; on second thoughts, it does makes a nice spring / summer outfit with the tutu.
Girl 6T outfit #2: Trish Scully Retro Rags Green Peasant Blouse ($36) and Ruffle Pants in white / polka dot (similar style for $26). This outfit is gorgeous! I love the style, the color combination and the fact that it's a transitional outfit into spring; the pants would also be perfect for breezy summer evenings. The total suggested retail price for this outfit is $62 which more than covers the cost of the box.

Boy 12 - 18M outfit #1: Rabbit Moon Soho Striped Zip Sweater in blue / brown ($23.50, on sale from $47) and Wittlebee / Threadless T-shirt 'I Love You' - I selected both of these pieces from my Showroom, so I knew what I was getting. The quality of the Rabbit Moon sweater is very nice - it is soft, thick and with a spot-on color combination that is so much more vibrant and nicer in person. The sweater would be a great layering piece for my son for spring / summer. The soft blue tee is the second basic piece in the box - I really liked the cute graphic and the color.

My verdict: I like Wittlebee, especially with the recent improvements - e.g. ability to self-select half of the pieces from your Showroom and the split-box option. The total value of this box comes to ~ $115 (I assumed ~$15 for the tutu and $7 for each of the T-shirts since I couldn't find the exact style / pricing) which is way above the cost of $39.99. In all of our boxes, we received pieces from both basic and higher-end brands that I would have bought anyway. While I cannot justify ordering a box every month, I definitely plan on ordering once or twice per season.

What do you think of Wittlebee? Are you subscribed and if so, what are some of the most favorite pieces you received?


  1. Great review! I love your box too. And my goodness, that sweater is just darling.

    The Threadless Milk and Cookie onesie is $13 I believe.

    And the Wittlebee T-shirt is $13 as well since that's the going price for Toddler Tees.

    Great deals! Love it. :)

    1. Thanks Daynah! $13 for each Tee makes the box an even better value compared to what I've paid, definitely worth it :)

  2. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn't appear. Grrrr... well I'm not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say fantastic blog! Here is my webpage:

  3. Nice information, many thanks to the author. It is incomprehensible to me now, but in general, the usefulness and significance is overwhelming.
