My eight-year-old is a big marine biology buff, so he was instantly fascinated by these little mandarin dragonets!


The reverse side of each postcard is in postcard format, but is filled with interesting facts about the topic (in this case, mandarin dragonets). 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 address 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!


The second postcard is all about the heart, particularly the electrical system that exists to keep it pumping!


This is one of many species of flying monkeys in South America that have received so much publicity lately! My son thought this little guy was extra cool.


How did I not know that there is a Dr. Seuss Memorial Sculpture Garden in Springfield, Massachusetts? I wish I had known last year when I was in the Northeast with my boys! They would have loved to see it!

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!

  1. I signed up, but even when I log in I can’t find the vast online content you mention, it just shows past cards. Am I missing something?

  2. Very cute.
    It looks like there’s even some room on the far left to hole punch and make a book, key ring or something so you dont have loose postcards floating around.
    I might have to try this one for my kiddos.

  3. This subscription is great! I love the quirky things they have on the cards. My daughter is eight and she loves trivia and new facts. Also, the pictures are gorgeous. They’re glossy finish cards and remind a bit of the old safari/ animal cards kids used to collect except better quality. We homeschool and these are a good lead to go “find out more”. Definitely worth the price for us.

  4. Interesting! I teach gifted students in grades 2-8 and I think this would be kind of cool to have delivered to the school for my younger students. I think even the older students might like reading them.
