Panda Pals March 2019 Review
This months socktivity is all about “Home Sweet Home!” We received this cute coloring sheet that features information all about animal habitats and has a fun matching game! The other side of this sheet features small grey clipart and an area for the child to draw where they live! Very fun!
The next item in the envelope was this cute sheet of stickers. Charlie was very excited to see there was a paper airplane sticker that matched his January socks!
Look at how cool this stackable crayon is! I have never seen anything like it! It is easy to hold, colors well, and is great for travel!
And of course, I have to share some photos of Charlie working on his animal habitat matching with the awesome stackable crayon and his rendition of our home! This was really fun!
The first sock of the month features the same turtle that was printed on the coloring sheet. The smiley green turtle is walking along a cobblestone path on a yellow pastel background with a light blue toe and heel. The logo “Panda Pals” is printed on the top of the feet. Charlie loved these and had to wear them to his early childhood class to show them off!
Note: Charlie wears a size 11 shoe for reference.
The next pair of socks have a lot going on! They are light blue with black and yellow stripes. In the striped squares are different habitats: igloo, snail shell, mountain, tree, fishbowl, and a house. The heel, toe, and top are pastel yellow and they also feature the “Panda Pals” logo across the top of the toe. Charlie liked these socks and had fun naming the animals that would live in each habitat. They do make for quite the conversation piece!
Verdict: I was really pleased with this month of Panda Pals! I love how they coordinate everything in the box so well. The similar colors and theme of socks are great when you have multiple kids fighting over the new socks! The quality of these socks is amazing. They are made from Peruvian cotton and after multiple washes, haven’t stretched or faded at all. While they aren’t a heavyweight sock, they are perfect for tennis shoes and everyday wear. And of course, the “socktivities” are a hit! I’ve never seen someone so happy to get a package of socks in the mail as my son is!
