Panda Pals is a play and learn monthly sock subscription for kids. Yes, that is a thing. Every pack contains two pair of socks and an activity pack. The outer packaging was a bit simple this month — sometimes the illustrations are pretty intense!
Everything in the box. You get two pairs of cute socks and a story and socktivity pack.
You receive two pairs of socks — one to wear, and one to use in the activity (and wear later).
The image runs across the front of each sock when worn (it only looks split across the socks because we are seeing opposite sides of each sock in this photo). We received one pair featuring a measure of music…
And a second pair with a cute monkey!
A little big for this guy, but too cute to not try on!
This one is adorable, too!
Our boys got a kick out of the socks!
Each pair is constructed of durable Peruvian cotton — they even snap together, so they don’t get lost before you get to wear them out! The snaps are totally awesome! We have 2 buckets full of unpaired socks in our house waiting for their mates to turn up, and we don’t need to add to them!
The socktivity packet is meant to engage the kids in fun, sock-inspired learning. The puppet-like tactile stimuli from the sock increase child interest and involvement in the activities. This month’s activities explored music, focusing on musical terminology.
The packet includes stickers and a pair of do-it-yourself socktivities.
Both sides of the activity sheet are packed with learning activities, including coloring, making music, and tracing letters!
The activities are good for a range of ages — elementary school age kids could do most unassisted, and they are accessible for younger kids if a little help is given on reading the prompts.
There are also make your own instrument activities with instructions for making a guitar and maracas!
Panda Pals is a very unique subscription, combining practical clothing and fun activity subscriptions in one, with the latter using the socks to help reinforce the lessons. Our son had a lot of fun with it — the socks themselves are so cute the kids loved wearing them!
