Everyone knows that I’m a huge fan of subscription boxes…and a few months ago I tried Wittlebee out for two months last fall (paid for out of my own pocket). It’s a monthly subscription box that includes 6 pieces of clothing for your child for $39.00. And you might be wondering why I didn’t post a review then? Well, I wasn’t impressed. Period. Shipping took almost a month and the clothes were just…blah. And I don’t recommend companies that I’m not impressed by.
Well…recently a deal popped up for Wittlebee on one of those deal sites and I figured I would give Wittlebee one more shot.
Maybe things had changed?
Let me give you a little background info…Wittlebee is a pretty new company. And on their website you’ll see lots of photos of name brand/designer kids’ clothes. I was pretty excited…what a great deal right? With the monthly fee of $39.00 you’re supposed to get a box with clothes that is valued over $100…but take a look at what I got with my newest box:
And the clothes:
A heart tank top, a white lace hemmed pair of leggings, red long sleeve plain shirt, plain purple onesie, plain purple pants, and a blue graphic (milk and cookies) shirt.
Okay…not too bad…but worth over $100? No way. Any designer clothes? Nope! Where are all the cute clothes that are featured on their website? And so you all know…this is what my other two boxes looked like that I got last fall. The only thing that I thought was really cute in this box was the cookie and milk shirt (which honestly felt a little cheaply made) and the tag of who it was by was cut out. Really?! I’m paying money to get clothes with tags cut out of them?
I almost feel that if I’m going to get a bunch of solid color/basic items, it would just be better for me to take my $39.00 to TJ Maxx or Marshalls.
Am I being too critical? Maybe, but it’s kind of hard to think that out of three boxes, if I didn’t get any name brand items that I’ve ever heard of…it’s not really worth it. AND if you happen to get something from a designer brand…could I find it for just as cheap at a department store on clearance?
Take it or leave it…but I’ll be closing out my account again. Shipping was faster at 2 weeks (compared to almost a month when I first signed up) but this wasn’t enough to sway me to keep my membership. Just not worth the money or being disappointed by the clothes.
