Little Miss Crafty and Kids review Kiwibop Postcard Pals

Kiwibop is a monthly subscription where your child will receive four postcards from a four different pals that are rotated each month. The really wonderful thing about this company, besides your kids getting something exciting and reasonably priced, is that a portion of your order goes to provide children with life threatening illness or injury complimentary memberships.

Our welcome kit was waiting in our mailbox yesterday afternoon just begging to be opened and explored. What I found inside the welcome kit was:
  • Four sturdy and colorful postcards 
  • Four Stickers of the Postcard Pals 
  • Two "props" to take photos with 

I looked over the postcards before showing them to the kids just to get an idea of what kind of information was on the cards. 

This is the layout of the cards. There is an image on the front of the card and a postcard pal, as well as a "teaser" of what the postcard is about. 

When you flip it over, there is a message providing the child with more information about the image on the front, a signature from the pal who sent the card, and a little fact in the area where you would normally see the address on a post card. There is also a little picture of a stamp in the upper right hand corner. 

I had my seven-year-old, who is still working on his reading skills, read the postcards to me. This was a great plan! He was so excited to get something in the mail, and the images on the front were exciting enough to want him to flip over the card and learn more. I also found him flipping from back to front to make sure the information was "correct." For example, on one of the cards it mentions that the troll only has one eye, so he immediately flipped it over to make sure that was right. 

There was also full discussion in our house about which of the current Postcard Pals was their favorite. 
Stickers that came with the pack.
Once we had read all about the interesting facts on the postcards, we decided it was time for a little fun with the "props" that were included.

Kiwibop provided this starter kit for an honest review of the product. My favorite features are the fact that the cards are brightly colored and sturdy. My three-year-old loves to carry things around with him so the strong the material is better for that. These will hold up really well against a three-year-old and multiple times reading and playing with the cards. I also love that the kids get excited about something coming in the mail that is educational, and that you can head over to Kiwibop's website and continue the learning with their Fact Explorer.

I will be signing the kids up to receive more postcards for the coming months, plus it makes me feel good to be able to help provide a complimentary membership to another child who could use something fun in the mail as they struggle with illness or injury.

For a limited time you can use code HOLIDAY14 to get 10% off your membership, making a six month membership $20.47. This is PERFECT!
