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.

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.

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!
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!
This is a postcard showing Sam and Sophia dressed in kimonos standing in front of the Himeji Castle in Himeji, Japan.
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!
