This month’s destination is France! I hope they sent me something from Sothys! On the left is a letter from Sam and Sofia, the Little Passports characters, chronicling their adventures in France. I like to ask my son (age 9) to read the letter to me every month for some good practice. On the right is the activity booklet, which is always filled with games and word puzzles that are specific to the monthly destination. This month there’s a recipe inside! C’est bon!
These are other standard items that come every month with Little Passports. There’s a clear sticker on the left to put in my son’s passport, a push pin sticker to put on his world map, and a luggage tag to put on his Little Passports suitcase. They usually also send a sticker to decorate the suitcase, but they either forgot or it fell out somewhere this month. I really like the push pin sticker – even though it doesn’t look like much, I think it is really helping my son learn about world geography!
Here’s an iconic postcard! It’s Sam and Sofia standing in front of the Eiffel Tower. On the right is our souvenir for the month. At first I thought it was just a cheap plastic play camera with a “France” sticker on it, but it turns out it’s like a View Master! If you look inside and click the button, it shows different pictures from all over France! I thought my son would think it was too baby-ish for him, but he actually thought it was really cool!
This little card came with the camera. It shows the pictures that are viewable inside the camera.
Verdict: My son is really enjoying Little Passports! I think it is a quality subscription. The activities are great, and he enjoys collecting all the stickers and monthly swag they send. I don’t think the retail items will ever be worth the total cost, but this subscription is about learning. I think the curation is great! Every month, my son walks away from the experience knowing where a new country is and having some concept of what life is like in that country. The fact that he really likes it is a huge bonus!
