The pack included a sheet of stickers featuring various characters we’ve met each month. This month’s pack introduced us to Jonathan the Dog!
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). One pair has a picture of our new friend, Jonathan the Dog.
The other pair has an array of emoticons. Both pairs are super adorable! The sizing is very versatile, too. I’ve had both my 2 year old and 8 year old in the same size socks, though they were knee socks when worn by the former! They fit both of my older kids (6 and 8) very well.
The socktivity packet has changed a bit over time. The original concept always worked in some sock-based activity – now it is just fun, learning related activities and not necessarily sock-dependent. This month was all about recognizing emotions. The introduction to the socktivity did tie-in the character featured on one of this month’s socks – Jonathan the Dog.
Both sides of the activity sheet have learning activities, including coloring, guided discussion prompts, and a puzzle.
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.
The activity sheet has room between the activities for coloring, drawing, and applying stickers. This month’s had a couple extra emoticon stickers, in addition to the sheet of Panda Pal characters. Panda Pals is a great kit to take along if you are going to be in a waiting room or restaurant for a while, since it is light and has relatively few pieces.
Panda Pals is a very unique subscription, combining practical clothing and fun activity subscriptions in one. The activities are great – they aren’t overly complicated and are easy to dive into. Our kids had a lot of fun with it — the socks themselves are so cute the kids loved wearing them!
