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 March 2016 Panda Pals package!
Everything was shipped in a white envelope featuring colorful sock & panda themed graphics.
A letter from Nikos (who we were introduced to last in the first month‘s shipment) lets us know that Hooty the Owl is the star of this tool-themed installment.
The Socks – Speaking of tools (and Hooty the Owl), here they are — in sock form! One pair features a wrench and screwdriver design on a blue background, while the other depicts Hooty the Owl. While I’m not sure that my girls will be down with wearing tool-themed socks, I know they’ll be a fan of the Hooty ones. His little 3D beak is super cute! As with all Panda Pals socks, both pairs feature built-in snaps to keep each sock together during the wash and when put away.
Activity Worksheet – A Socktivity worksheet provided little ones with fun activities including a “match the tools” game, a sock search, color Hooty the Owl, and more. The other side of the sheet included space for drawing.
Story – The “story” is actually a short comic-style 2-page spread about Hooty the Owl helping Sock Island by fixing all of its lights. Yay, Hooty!
Sock Island Stickers – Children can use these colorful tool-themed stickers to decorate the Sock Island map (received in the first month’s kit).
Panda Pals is certainly a unique alternative to all of the toy/craft subscription boxes out there. Plus it’s a smart way to get your kids excited about new socks — and hopefully encourage them to keep ’em on. 😉 Remember — for a limited time, you can save 15% with coupon code “PAL”!
