I’ve mentioned before how I don’t shop often for the kids. I am an unapologetic season shopper. Once in a while when I am perusing the interwebs, I buy one or two items, but I only shop intentionally maybe 2 or 3 times a year. Plus it really helps to have two kids that are the same gender. (so glad I saved everything!)
So when Kid City Stores courted me on Twitter I was intrigued… considering that there is a Kid City less than 2 miles away from my house, it was a no brainer because Spring is almost here (no, really, it is, I promise!) and the boys are growing like weeds! They challenged me to see how much I could get with $100, and I accepted. Kid City Stores did not disappoint!
Since I had never been to a Kid City Store before I had no idea what to expect. I decided to take the boys, since the eldest has been VERY vocal about what he wears to school everyday. I wanted to make sure everything we got he liked because I wanted to avoid any potential morning arguments.
First thing I noticed about the store was that it was ginormous! There was clothes for kids of all sizes! We headed right for the boys section and started to check out the prices to see what I was dealing with!
The first thing the boys saw was the super hero gear. Before I made any commitments, I checked the price tag–$5.00! It was really good quality too. Not the type of fabric that shrinks if you look at it too hard. Like good quality fabric that will outlast the many washes it will go through.
The baby got his stuff too, but he was really more concerned with wandering the big store. It is also now the store where everyone knows his name.
The cool part was that they had plenty of brand name clothes at great prices as well! There was a whole rack of New Balance athletic pants that were originally priced at $32.00 – - we got them for $3.00. Can you believe that? I felt like I won the kids shopping winter Olympics. I actually am still awaiting my medal!
After we had filled our cart to the brim, we decided that we would stop for a quick bite nearby. At that moment we realized that we left without bringing the key ingredient to a successful restaurant experience –toys!! Kid City Stores had plenty of those! We got some transformer type toys for a $1 each.
In addition to the new spring wardrobe for the kids, I was able to pick up shoes, underwear, pajamas, undershirts, workbooks, toys all for under $100. Crazy!
