This month’s destination is Brazil! This is our second month subscribing to Little Passports, so now we get to see what items are regularly included (the first box comes with some extra items). As promised, there is a letter from Sam and Sofia, the Little Passports characters, and an activity booklet about Brazil. The activity booklet has a South America Word Scramble, a Portugese Word Search, and on the inside there is a recipe for Brigadeiro. Brigadeiro appears to be a chocolatey Brazilian treat – yum!
These are four other items that are standard to every Little Passports mailing – a luggage tag for the suitcase from the first mailing, a sticker (from Brazil this month) to decorate the suitcase, a clear sticker “passport stamp” for the passport stamp they sent from the first month, and a pin for the world map they sent the first month. My eight-year-old loves labels and badges and things like this!
This is a postcard from Brazil showing a red uakari monkey, an inhabitant of the vast Brazilian rainforest. On the back are some facts about the little guy.
Did you know that there are amethyst mines in Maraba, Brazil? Me neither until we got this souvenir from Little Passports. It’s only about the diameter of a quarter, but it’s really beautiful! The purple is a little deeper than captured in this picture.
Verdict: To be honest, I thought that the first month of Little Passports would be awesome with the suitcase, passport, and wall map, which it was, but I kind of expected following months to be pretty underwhelming. I am happy to report I was completely wrong. This package was awesome! I am actually a little blown away at the souvenir selection, it’s brilliant. I really feel like Little Passports sent my son a manageable amount of knowledge about Brazil, including tidbits about its geography, climate, culture, language, and industry. That’s a wonderful value for $15. Color me impressed!
