Before bills came into my life, I remember the "magic" of getting one's very own mail. That's the premise behind Kiwibop Postcard Pals. A Kiwibop subscription ensures that your child will receive a fun piece of mail each month. When you sign up, your child will get a New VIP Membership Kit which is what I received for review. After that, I believe they send four colorful postcards a month featuring fun characters called "Postcard Pals".
A nice side benefit of your subscription is that Kiwibop uses a portion of their proceeds to send complimentary memberships to children who are coping with life threatening illnesses or injury.
Kiwibop is a very inexpensive service. They have three pricing plans with discounts for longer term subscriptions. Shipping is free.
Monthly - $3.99
Bi-Annual - $3.79 per month
Annual - $3.59 per month
Every new subscriber gets a welcome kit which arrives in this brown envelope.
Inside is a folder which introduces pictures of the Postcard Pals and contains a welcome message.
Inside the folder are four colorful postcards, each featuring an interesting topic or animal. One of the Postcard Pals is featured on the front of each card above a brief paragraph telling about the subject.
On the back of each card is more detailed information presented in a fun way designed to engage children. The four cards I received featured the jaguar (one of my favorite wild animals), the grasshopper, the "troll bridge" in Seattle and geodes. And yes, I did learn a few things I didn't know! The back of each card is signed with your Postcard Pal host's signature.
The introductory envelope included a couple of cute paper props for kids to cut out and use for crazy selfies.
There is also a sheet of stickers featuring some of the Postcard Pals.
Kiwibop would be a fun and educational subscription for young children. I couldn't find a recommended age range on their site but judging from the intro package, I'd guess ages 3 to 7 would be about right.
If you're interested in trying Kiwibop for your child, use code HOLIDAY14 for a 10% discount on all membership plans.
Isn't Kiwibop just FUN to say? Admit it...you've said it out loud already no matter how old you are!
Thanks for reading,
P.S. Since I don't have a little one, I would like to give this Kiwibop kit to one of my readers. All you have to do is be subscribed to this blog, have a young child and be the first to ask!
