June Panda Pals review time!
Panda Pals is a unique “play and learn” monthly sock subscription created just for kids. Each shipment will include two colorful pairs of socks, along with fun and educational activities — aka “Socktivities”. The socks fit children 3 through 8 and are available in two sizes. For every subscription purchased, Sock Panda (the parent company of Panda Pals) donates a pair of socks to kids in need.
Subscriptions are $15/month with shipping included. For a limited time, you can save 15% with coupon code “PAL”.
Let’s see what’s in the June 2016 Panda Pals package!
Instead of the usual Panda Pals themed envelope, everything was shipped in a regular Sock Panda one this month. Still cute though!
The new Panda Pals character we were introduced to this month was “Oliver the Koala”. The Socktivity above included some facts about koalas and a “cut out and play Oliver”.
The socks! — I should note that while parts of them look reddish in my photos, they’re actually more of a dark pink in person. Definitely two of the more “girly” styles we’ve gotten. The koala socks are really cute and feature a 3D/protruding black nose and multi-colored stripes on the foot. The second pair is great for teaching toddlers the difference between left and right. One is printed with an “L” and the word “Left”, while the other has an “R” and the word right. Cute idea! As always, both pairs included the handy little snaps to prevent them from losing their match in the wash (or dresser drawers).
Activity Worksheet – A 2-sided Socktivity worksheet provided little ones with fun activities involving the concept of left and right. It included letter tracing, drawing, coloring, and more.
There’s also usually a sticker sheet to decorate the Sock Island map (received in the first month’s kit), but it wasn’t included in my packet this month. I’m not sure if it was accidentally left out, or they just didn’t make one for this month’s theme.
Panda Pals is a unique way to add fun socks to your kiddo’s wardrobe with the bonus of keeping them busy with a few simple educational activities. 😉 Remember — for a limited time, you can save 15% with coupon code “PAL”!
