This month we got a note introducing us to one of the Panda Pals, Hooty the owl!
This month’s story is “Hooty Helps Out.” I thought the “story” would be more like a little book, but it’s actually just this two-page comic. My son loves comics, though, and this will be good reading experience anyway.
This is the activity sheet that was included. The reverse has a big drawing space. It kind of reminds me of the activity placemats they give kids in restaurants.
He may be an eight-year-old man now, but my little one is still waaaay into stickers!
Now on to the main event: the socks! This is the first pair that were included, depicting Hooty the owl. Usually the panda pals’ ears stick out on the socks, but this time it’s the beak!
This is the second pair of socks we got this month. I photographed them this way to remind you of one of my new favorite things in the world: THE SNAP. Look at the top of the socks and you’ll see that they can snap together. This could seriously revolutionize family sock herding forever.
Verdict: I think Panda Pals is adorable and would make an especially good present for a child you care about. The socks are really soft and hey, they snap together! $15 is a lot for two pairs of socks, but I think the included activities and the specialness of the whole package make it worth it. It really turns a kind of boring present, or the act of buying something boring, into something awesome for kids.
Have you tried Panda Pals yet? Isn’t the snap the best?
