I’ve had a Wittlebee membership for quite some time now although I paused my account for a while when they were going through some major changes in how they chose their children’s clothing for shipment. The monthly kids clothing club has been a nice way to stock up on some essentials at the start of each new size change (pausing my account in-between). I haven’t been completely happy with their products though. In the past I’ve had too many mediocre items and wrong sizes. Although they’ve always been happy to correct the situation with a credit to my account it was becoming a hassle to deal with and certainly not worth the price tag. This was especially true because in their past program you weren’t able to select anything yourself. They recently changed that policy with their new showroom.
I was interested to see how their new showroom option worked so I activated my account again when I was asked to do a review. Above is the boxed items that I received this time. The penguin, Hello Kitty, and giraffe shirts are the items I was able to personally chose for my box. The other three items (pink shirt and matching shirt/pants set) are my other items chosen by the Wittlebee representative.
Here’s a screen cap of what my showroom looked like. I had a variety of basic options as well as some graphic tees. Since my daughter rarely wears something without a print of some sort I was happy to see I could chose from many options there. Again, I just wouldn’t pay this kind of money ($39.99/mth) for basics.
I chose my three items and submitted my order for delivery. My daughter is always excited to get her Wittlebee box even though we haven’t gotten one for several months. She loved all the bold t-shirts but wasn’t so impressed with the peach shirt/pants set. I feel the same way. It’s just not “her” and the size seems very narrow even for my skinny minnie. I miss the feature from the old system where you could select a certain style for your child along with prints and colors that you prefer.
I was also surprised by how drastically the sizing varied. I’m sure we’re all well aware of how much sizes can differ in the world of children’s clothing but take a look at the bottom two images in the block above. I layered the shirts on top of each other to show the difference.
The smallest Hello Kitty shirt fits her perfectly and she LOVES it so I’m glad the other shirts will be something to grow into!
