A Busy Mom's Secret For Buying Kid-Friendly Kicks
Any mom will tell you that when you first have kids, it's a serious adjustment. No matter how prepared you are, it definitely takes time to get into the swing of things.
But one thing I was not prepared for was their opinions on what they wear! My 5-year-old daughter Emmy went through a phase of only wanting to wear her unicorn pajamas wherever she went, and I couldn't get Luke, who's 8 going on 16, out of his Spiderman costume for months without him having a total meltdown!
Trying to get them ready in the mornings has now become a battlefield, especially in the last few months. Staying at home more has meant that all of our routines have been thrown completely out of whack My days are so unpredictable that I've been thanking my lucky stars for online shopping. I've been trying to avoid going shopping in person as much as possible, just to be on the safe side. I have our groceries and supplies delivered, and it saves me a lot of time and headaches.
As the summer was coming to an end, I realized I needed to get the kids some clothes to transition to the colder weather. I've always gone clothes shopping in person, as I'm super picky about the quality and love searching for the best deals possible.
Not to mention the fact that my kids have developed their own personal style (when did that happen?!) so I always try to make sure they have some cool things. I hadn't considered getting the kids' clothes online until a mom friend, Beth, told me I should check out FabKids.
As I said, I love picking out my kids' clothes in person, but Beth assured me that their membership model has been a total game-changer. I checked out the FabKids site and was impressed by all of the cute clothes and shoes. All of FabKids items are kid-tested, kid-approved, and designed to make getting dressed in the morning a whole lot easier- and fun!
Every month, FabKids drops a new collection that is exclusive to VIP members. The themes are super cute -Unicorns Forever, Star Power- I knew my kids would go nuts for it! All of the FabKids clothes and shoes are so unique. I was having a lot of fun browsing all of the cute offerings, but I was still a little confused about how the membership worked.
Turns out, it's a lot easier than I was expecting. To get started, you take a short quiz that asks you questions like which colors your little ones like best, if they're more sporty or girly, and what their age and size is.
When you're signed up as a VIP member, your credit card gets charged $39.95 every month on the 6th if you don't shop or skip the month by the 5th. That amount gets put into your account as a member credit for you to spend. You can skip any month you want as to not get billed, but the member credits never expire.
FabKids VIP members get so much more than just exclusive access to the monthly drops. Their offer for new members lets you snag 2 pairs of shoes from just $9.95, or 2 outfits for $19.95 including free shipping! I couldn't miss out on such an amazing value, so I signed Luke and Emmy up.
We had so much fun picking their first order- Emmy insisted on the Rainbow Unicorn Fuzzy Boots, and Luke was excited to see they even had a dinosaur print hoodie (his latest obsession).
The last few months, they have missed out on countless birthday parties and outings with their friends, so when their FabKids order arrived, they were so excited to be getting something in the mail. Both of them loved what we had picked so much, and to my surprise, they came down for breakfast fully dressed all by themselves the next day.
FabKids is designed to help take the stress out of mornings. All of the pieces can be mixed and matched, making it even easier for my two to get dressed. Emmy's shoes even came with zippers on the sides, making her totally self-sufficient!
FabKids has done the impossible by providing trendy, one-of-a-kind clothes and shoes for amazing prices. Plus, the quality of everything we have gotten so far has been amazing. Their membership model is so unique and I really love how flexible it is. Plus, I've never seen cuter kids clothes anywhere else - I wish some of their stuff came in adult sizes!
