Little Passports Subscription Box Review – February 2015 Package

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 – February 2015 Letter Activities

This month’s destination is Japan! Arigato! On the left is our monthly letter from our Little Passports friends, Sam and Sophia, telling of their adventures in Japan. On the right is our activity booklet, full of fun games, foreign language, and cultural tidbits. Most children’s subscriptions come with an activity booklet, but this one is my eight-year-old’s favorite!

Little Passports Subscription Box Review – February 2015 Japan Swag

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 Japan 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!

Little Passports Subscription Box Review – February 2015 Souvenirs

This month, Little Passports sent us two souvenirs from Japan. On the left is a little sushi eraser – cute! My kids happen to be really into novelty erasers, it’s quite a big deal at their school. On the right is an origami kit with several sheets of origami paper and a little instruction booklet to make several designs in the back of the packet. I think this will keep my eight-year-old busy for a while!

Verdict: I think Little Passports is a solid, quality children’s subscription. The retail value of the items included will never be $15, but that’s not what this subscription is about. The value is realized in enjoyment and education. Little Passports delivers a substantial yet manageable amount of relevant information for my son every month, and he enjoys getting it. It really does a good job of simulating a quality package you might get from a good friend on vacation. This month an activity was included as well as a small souvenir, and that is a big bonus for us!

  1. Been getting this sub for my niece since last March since she was turning 5 in April. She loves it but my sister has to help with the activities, of course.

    Otherwise, regarding the Japan mailing, the origami instructions are quite difficult. I didn’t believe my sister and then the next time we were visiting, my husband and I both struggled to make something. We resorted to origami tutorials on youtube.

  2. I am on the fence between this sub and Junior Explores for my almost 7 year old son- he is really into knowledge and different places. I am just unsure of the little stickers and stuff.

    Thank you for doing these reviews 🙂

    • You’re welcome! In my household, the 9-y-o has been doing this one and the 7-y-o just started Jr Explorers. I think I’m going to switch them because of age appropriate-ness, but either would work. Jr Explorers has more activities, but it’s also more expensive, so ??? Hope that helps.

      • I’m in the same spot with my almost 6.5 year old. That half year is very important 🙂 It’s easy to add learning to Little Passports, but at the same time Junior Explorers has its own appeal.
