Panda Pals September 2020 Review



Every month Panda Pals sends us a “socktivity” along with a small extra item or two. This month we received an educational sheet all about whales. Hank was fascinated to find out that some whales can swim up to 30 miles per hour! Along with other trivia, we received a whale shaped maze and a crossword puzzle that was based on the trivia facts. We also received a sweet little wooden whale that can be decorated to your liking. Perfect for this month’s theme!


We sure love the addition of these socktivities in this subscription! Hank enjoyed the crossword puzzle, while Charlie couldn’t wait to get his hands on that maze. Using markers, each boy was able to decorate one side of the whale for a little craft time. This gesture is small, but the kids sure do enjoy it, making it an entire experience.


Whale Socks

Aren’t these whale socks adorable? I love, love, love the varying shades of blue that are incorporated into the oceanic scene featured on these socks. The friendly-looking whale is spouting water out of his blowhole into the beautiful blue sky. What a sight! These socks feature the usual “Panda Pals” logo on the top of the toe, and are stretchy enough to fit both of my boys’ feet. We found them to be made well with a good amount of stretch and most importantly: comfortable. Like I have stated before, these wild patterned socks are easy to match out of the dryer, and hold up extremely well!


Sea Life Socks

This pair of socks also sticks to the ocean theme, but with a few different characters. These mostly blue socks feature sandy tan toes as the bottom of the ocean, complete with stingrays, schools of fish, and a shark! These socks were definitely a hit with both of my kids, and we have decided to alternate who gets to wear them. (Such a tough life to be a kid!) These socks fit comfortably and stay up well, also displaying the “Panda Pals” logo on the toe. So cute, and fun to wear!

Verdict: Panda Pals is always a surprise. You just never know what you might get! This month we received an ocean-themed curation, and my boys couldn’t have been happier. These were probably their favorite socks to date. I have no doubt these socks will be fought over! Like I have mentioned before, I love the quality of these socks, and Charlie won’t wear anything else. That being said, he has yet to wear a hole through any of his pairs, which to me, is pretty darn amazing! I can’t wait to see what next month’s theme will be!

To Wrap Up:

Can I still get this box if I sign up today? Each package is customized by size and gender, so yours might look different! If you order today, your socks will be sent USPS within 3-5 days of account activation and will be sent around the same time each month.

COUPON: Use code MSA15 to get 15% off your first shipment.

Value Breakdown: At $16 a month, you are paying $8 per pair of socks, which is a little higher priced than other socks, but you are also helping people in need by purchasing!

While I am taking a time-out from being a Clinical Laboratory Scientist, I am currently staying at home with my 2 sweet boys! My first subscription was Julep thanks to happening upon the MSA website, and it all went downhill from there! I have subscribed to Ipsy, Boxycharm, Degustabox, Julep, Graze, Bluum, Walmart, and more because I love a good surprise! I truly am a subscription addict!
