Anyways, I fell in love with the concept (until then I never knew anything about subscription boxes). And because it didn't occur to me before and the surprise element is just so awesome, I loved it from set-go!
But, I didn't order just then. Yes, I am cautious when it comes to surprises as well. I did a little bit of research and waited. Sean Percival, a man that wears many hats is CEO here. I am intrigued by his various interest and his entrepreneur spirit. Either ways, I liked how they came up with the name Wittlebee and how it was the bandwagon to hop on.
As though Wittlebee was reading my mind, it popped an invite with a promotion offering their $39.99 for 6 item box for $14.99. I took the bait.
Wittlebee offers clothing for kids at $39.99 for 6 items every month. You can pick your child's gender, size and style. Throw in some notes as well. They will match it as much as possible. This is fashioned as a grab bag with a considerate nod. (A grab bag is a bag of items unseen and random of various values).
If you have a picky dresser or are a picky mom with a keen & unique sense of style and are very involved in your lil Diva or Dude's clothes, then grab boxes may not be for you. You will have more fun shopping for items yourself.
But for the rest of you who likes to experiment, try new brands, be surprised, then Wittlebee is fun. It's a small business and that's what America is all about!
So my wittlebundle (yes, slowly you begin to talk, walk and wittle like them) came in a couple of weeks later (I don't remember - I don't track these things diligently and O is not walking around in the nude, though she would love to).
First of the bat, I loved their box. It is sweet.
I got some nice clothes indeed. Especially for the value!
Above all else, I loved that Wittlebee introduced me to some great brands - Lately, Lily (I love these $28 tees but not particularly the one pictured), Le Top, Tea Collection, Trish Scully Child, American Apparel (the solid Pink pictured - it is awesome quality and great for layering), Baby Nay, Warrior Poet.
Some of these brands do feature on Zulily, even then you will not be able to put together a great box as this one for $39.99 (shipping included) or less.
