Kiwibop Postcard Pals is a subscription service for children who are beginner readers. Each month the "postcard pals" send postcards to the child with lovely pictures and interesting facts about all kinds of different topics.

This package was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

kiwibop-mar-jellyfish

My eight-year-old and I agree: this picture is terrifying. Don't you think so? It's very cool, but I can hardly stand to look at it! Please don't get stung, little girl!

kiwibop-mar-jellyfish-reverse

The reverse side of each postcard is in postcard format, but is filled with interesting facts about the topic (in this case, harmless fresh water jellyfish). This seems to be written at a level that would be great for preschool and early grade school students to read with (or to) their parents.

There is also a website adress for their online content. We took a peek and found that there is tons of information on their site about all kinds of fascinating topics!

kiwibop-mar-kazoo

The second postcard is about kazoos. I might be mistaken, but I don't think my kids have ever played one before. Do I go to a music store, or a toy store? Oh right, Amazon.

kiwibop-mar-quokka

This little guy is called a quokka. My son fell in love with him instantly! So cute!

kiwibop-mar-moher

The last postcard about about the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. So beautiful!

Verdict: I was a little skeptical about Kiwibop Postcard Pals at first, but now that I have seen the overall value of the subscription, I'm a fan. The postcards themselves are beautiful and the topics are interesting. The kids should have no problem reading them (with help if needed), and the level is such that they can understand and learn about these topics. The online content is vast and also contains lots of additional interesting topics. The subscription is very inexpensive, especially for what your child gets and what they can access. Plus, kids love getting mail!

What do you think of Kiwibop Postcard Pals?

Thank you so much for this review! My daughter is a little old for this, but she’ll still find it cute, and I will be able to share them with the kiddos at school! Purchased a year. 🙂
