Little Passports Subscription Box Review - December 2014 Box

Little Passports is a subscription box for kids that teaches them about geography and world cultures in a really fun way! This review is of the World Edition for ages 5-10, but they also have a subscription for Early Explorers (ages 3-5), and a USA Edition for ages 7-12.

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

The Subscription Box: Little Passports

The Cost: Regular monthly subscription is $11.95 plus $3 shipping per month

COUPON: Use coupon code SPECIAL10 to get $10 off a new 12-Month Plan subscription

The Products: Every month, Little Passports sends items to promote learning about the location, culture, and language of a different foreign country. Boxes include items such as stickers, activity sheets, souvenirs, and access to online games, all of which encourage kids to explore the world.

Little Passports Subscription Box Review - December 2014 Suitcase

This was our first month subscribing to Little Passports. The first month, they send you a super cute suitcase to keep all of your letters and souvenirs in! It’s made of a very nice, durable cardboard.

Also in the first month, a “passport” is included. Inside are questions for the child to fill out plus plenty of space to put stickers from all the places they will learn about in the months to come! The first letter from Sam (one of the two Little Passports friends who send the packages) explains who they are and why they are traveling the world. (SPOILER ALERT: There’s a magic scooter involved!)

Little Passports Subscription Box Review - December 2014 World Map

The world map they have included is perfect for kids! It’s detailed enough to clearly see all 192 (I think) countries, but it’s small enough to hang up without being too unweildy. The kids and I were probably most excited about this item!

This month, instead of sending stickers from a destination, there are stickers with Sam and Sophia on them. There is also a luggage tag, a postcard, and an activity booklet!

Little Passports Subscription Box Review - December 2014 Coupon

The package also included a bonus item for parents, a $10 off coupon from Mabel’s Labels! The idea is that if you are taking an actual trip, it’s always a good idea to have your childrens’ clothing labeled in case anything gets lost. I usually use a sharpie to write our last name on the tags on my childrens’ clothing, but more and more commonly I am finding that clothing for children does not have tags. I think it must be itchy tag syndrome!

Verdict: For just under $15 a month, Little Passports is a great value. The materials are really good learning tools. I like that they include a suitcase as a place to keep all of the little souvenirs for later, but I also appreciate that the items are not of such high value that it would matter if they were accidentally lost or destroyed. That happens a lot with kids! I also found that this subscription is a set of activities that parents can either do with their children or not; the activities can be completely self-guided. So, if you are looking for something to keep your child busy while you are doing something else, this is a good one. It’s also obviously a great subscription for children who are interested in the global community, or who have parents that would like them to be!

  1. I am loving all these detailed kid sub box reviews! Thank you so much Anna and MSA!

    • Thank you so much chris!

  2. my kiddos have been getting the world edition since June (they are 4 & 6) and absolutely LOVE it. My mother who is a teacher loves going through the package every month with them too! Our suitcase has held up very well and works perfectly to keep everything in from month-to-month. I signed up for the annual sub, so it was around $10-$11 month I think it is totally worth it! I will definitely be renewing our annual sub in June. I think this sub is definitely about the experience more than the worth of the actual items included.

  3. I bought two subscriptions for my nieces who are 9 and 10. One gets the World edition and the other gets the USA one. The USA one does not come with the suitcase, but a nice plastic binder to keep all the activities. They have had the subscription for over a year and I ask them if they still like the activities and they love them. I think they also just love getting a package in the mail with their name on it. They also have online activities that they can do. Overall, I think it’s a good value.

  4. I’ve been eyeing this up for my 6 year old. I will be reading the next few reviews to see if it is a good match for him.

  5. I started getting this for my niece last March/April when she was turning five. She loves it–doesn’t quite understand how long a month is though and daily checks the mail for it. The downside is that she cannot do the activities on her own (Early Explorers is a newer option). The little suitcase pretty quickly started coming apart too.
