Panda Pals introduces a ‘pal’ each month – this month, the girl’s subscription features Jonathan the dog! The theme this month is “emotions.”
Sock Panda donates a pair of socks to those in need for each new subscription purchased. This is a nice way to give your child a real world example of ways to “give back” in your day to day life.
The suggested age range for Panda Pals is 3-8. This activity sheet introduces us to Jonathan the dog and gives a lot of small exercises allowing kids to explore emotion.
As the parent of a two-year-old, I can safely say that emotion is a daily topic of discussion in our house, and I really think that it’s important to teach kids how to understand and communicate what they’re feeling — so I love the concept for this subscription for both boys and girls.
Even though my son is below the suggested age range for this subscription, we did read the “Feelings Poem” here together. He knows “happy” and “shy” and “sad” already, but it was fun to chat about the rest and make faces together.
Sock Panda included a handful of emoji stickers and an eraser, too. Stickers are always a big hit for my son and I like to keep a stash on hand for visiting nieces and nephews too.
Let’s check out the included socks this month:
Striped emoji socks! These are cute and are really high quality for kids’ socks.
The second pair features Jonathan the dog. I love the goofy chevron sweater and aviators! Totally thought he was a polar bear at first because of the 3D nose, though.
Panda Pals sent us this box for review. I do think these socks, in particular, are pretty unisex, but since my two-year-old son is still a bit small for these, we’re planning on donating the socks in the spirit of Sock Panda’s own charitable program.
Verdict: Panda Pals is one of those subscriptions that I think is just perfect for gifting! For starters, kids love to get things in the mail. I personally used to love fun socks as a kid, and now as a parent, I know how often those tiny kid socks seem to go missing – so having regular updates is nice, too. Value wise, if you count the socks as $7.50 each, that’s middle of the road for what you might spend on similar patterned socks. The charitable aspect also appeals to me, since I like to support brands that give back and think it’s a good lesson to share with children.
