Box Upon A Time is a monthly subscription box service which offers children's designer clothes at very discounted prices, up to 60% off in fact. The concept of this box is really lovely, you fill in all your child's details via your account on the Box Upon A Time website, state what you would rather not receive as far as patterns, clothing types and styles and voila, the rest is up to your stylist to hand pick clothes which they think that you and your little one will love. I love everything about this subscription box service, the branding is super cute with the hot air balloons, the brands they offer are uber stylish and absolutely stunning and the staff are friendly and very helpful with any queries I've had for them. Box Upon A Time offer beautiful and stylish boutique and designer clothing which I love but sadly cannot always afford but make it quite accessible to us normal folk. Box Upon A Time also offer you the chance to exchange your box completely free of charge if you are in any way unsatisfied with your box which I think is rather noble of them as I had an issue with my box but chose not to exchange in the end.
As you can see Tyler Lee received some gorgeous pieces and I really do love them all, my only issue being that he is 14 months old now and two of his pieces are 6-12 months and 12 months on the label, however, I was told that these pieces do have a larger range than what they state on the label, which does seem true with the trousers. However, I just wish that these had come in the next size up 12-18 months so that they would have done Tyler Lee for the summer and so he could have gotten more longevity out of them as they are really stunning.
On to the positives, Tyler Lee was sent these very chic penny-farthing inspired short shorts which are by L'asticot, an organic Swiss brand. These shorts are a very French style to them and I love them. They have a blue band and trim and look so comfortable. Thankfully my boy is very thin, just like his daddy, so these fit for now.
The trousers are by Little Green Radicals and these are their fossil tumble trousers. Little Green Radicals is also an organic brand with a passion for Fairtrade so lots of positive elements on the brands chosen for Tyler Lee already. These trousers look so comfy and the corduroy is very soft and hard-wearing, protecting his little knees whilst he's crawling around.
Finally, he was sent these beautiful Emma Levine Kids & Baby two piece striped set which can be used as either pyjamas or a casual outfit for lounging around. I love this set, I think it's so handsome and comfortable for my boy plus it's great for the upcoming summer with the short-sleeved top and it's light material.
I loved the Box Upon A Time experience and the anticipation of waiting for our box, I can see why people love subscription boxes! Overall, my experience with Box Upon A Time was quite positive, although I do wish I little bit more attention to Tyler Lee's date of birth on his profile was taken into more account when picking the sizes for his pieces, even though the stylists thought the bigger size ranges on these pieces would still fit Tyler Lee and they do for now, I would always opt for the bigger size but perhaps that's just the Irish mammy preparedness in me! The lovely people at Box Upon A Time were nothing but helpful though so I can see how easy it would be to exchange your box if need be. I would highly recommend Box Upon A Time and shall be investing in another box myself, I love the surprise element to it all and it's great to have a little treat coming via the post.
Box Upon A Time is €51.55 a month and they post to a whole range of countries inside Europe. You can find more information and sign up for your own box on the Box Upon A Time website.
