Do kids even wear socks? Yes. If they are awesome and adorable, the answer is yes.
I have a toddler…well, in a month or so, she’ll officially graduate to “kid” and this “kid” is hot-blooded in every way. It will be zero degrees out and all she will want to do is run around the house in a t-shirt and tutu.
We typically resort to bribery, the offering being a cute sweater or pants with ears, or socks as adorable as these ones. She’s happy because her outfit makes her smile, and I’m happy because her feet are no longer tiny little ice blocks.

Kids Socks that Rock
This adorable little package arrived for my sweet pea a couple of weeks ago and she was stoked to open it. When she saw these colorful, playful socks (also known as Panda Pals, I mean…how sweet is that?) she couldn’t wait to try them on.
Seriously, I want these exact socks for myself! When she saw the Panda socks (with EARS! EARS PEOPLE!) she immediately beamed in on the blue heal and since blue’s her favorite color, these became her favorite socks.
She’s calling the other ones her birthday socks and continues to ask if it’s her birthday at least 17 times per day 🙂 Yes, that’s a smiley face emoji because I couldn’t find an “if you ask me that one more time I might actually die” emojis. Kids. Gotta love em’!
She had as much fun prancing around in her new “Birthday Socks” as she did sticking stickers on her Panda Pals “Socktivity” (which comes with each Panda Pals monthly delivery). I love that it’s not just socks, ya know? It gets them excited to keep their feet warm and put their thinking cap on.
Okay, about the socks, because I know you care about quality as much as I do.
These socks are designed by the Sock Panda peeps, which is a refreshing take on many of the sock subscriptions out there. And, you know I love a product that gives back – these guys have donated over 200,000socks to homeless shelters, low-income senior centers, hospitals, and underprivileged classrooms throughout the country.
When you put Panda Pals on those tiny little toes (or, get told to step aside because “I’m a big girl mommy and I can do it all by myself“) you can feel good about the brand AND quality of the socks. There’s nothing worse than brand new socks that are filled with holes after a few wears. Sock Panda’s socks are typically made with 85% Peruvian cotton and you can tell its good quality just by touching them.
Nothing but awesome things to say about this brand. My only request would be the option to purchase socks that have those grippy things on the bottom. We live in an 1800’s house that, in addition to being an icebox, is 100 percent hardwood. Grips come in handy when certain people are running around the house like a maniac (maybe me…maybe the kid).
Where to get em’
You can hook your kiddo up with a Panda Pal subscription through Sock Panda, who also has sock subscriptions for big kids and grown-ups too. Panda Pal subscriptions start at $15 / month, but you can get the monthly cost down to $14 / month (for a 6-month subscription) or $12 / month (for a 12-month subscription).
For each Panda Pal subscription, your kiddo (best for ages 3 to 8 years) gets 2 pairs of socks and fun things to do (stickers, crafts, brain teasers + more)! And, for every new subscription, they donate to someone in need. Such a great way to shop!
And, don’t forget to grab some for yo-self or your teen – Tween, Adult Men’s and Women’s subscriptions are yours for the taking!
Stay tuned for more Sock Panda (and a gigantic giveaway) next month!
