I love shopping for my children’s clothes. Admittedly a fair portion of that shopping is now done online. But what about grabbing the simple basics, that children seem to grow out of before your eyes? How about a clothing club? This American concept has no doubt been borne out of the shift to a less “hands on” way of shopping. We all know what a trial it can be lugging tired children around a supermarket – all hail the introduction of purchasing groceries online. The Wittlebee Kids Clothing Club is run with the same principle. The difference is that each month a box of brand new, styled-for-you baby or child’s basics lands on your doorstep. No fuss. It isn’t meant to be an entire wardrobe for your children, simply a box of essentials to supplement the clothing you already have.
A stylist will tailor the box of eight items based on your preference for colours, sizes and geographical location. Wittlebee covers the basics – onesies, socks, t-shirts etc. For $39.99 per month, a box will land on your doorstep once a month. I think I’d just order eight pairs of socks per month, to compensate for the never ending pile of odd socks in my household. The company caters for newborns, right through to five-year-olds, and includes clothing from several American labels.
As yet, Wittlebee isn’t available in Australia, but we think it’s an interesting concept – what are your thoughts?
