Little Passports Subscription Box Review – April 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 – April 2015 Letter booklet

This month’s destination is Egypt! So exotic! On the left is a letter from Sam and Sofia, the Little Passports characters, chronicling their adventures in Egypt. 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 “find the differences” game on the front – I love those!

Little Passports Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Extras

These are other standard items that come every month with Little Passports. On the left is a luggage tag from Egypt to put on my son’s suitcase they sent him in the first month. On the right there is a sticker to decorate the suitcase, a pin to put on his world map, and a flag to put in his passport.

I have to stop here and extend my gratitude to Little Passports. In my review last month, I stated that we had either lost or not received our sticker from France. It was totally not a big deal. Little Passports saw the review and somehow tracked me down, emailed me, and sent us a replacement sticker for free! I understand this might be because of my position as a reviewer, but that was really, really kind of them. I appreciated that gesture so much. I sincerely hope their service level is consistent with all subscribers, and I get the feeling it is probably so.

Little Passports Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Postcard

Another iconic postcard this month! It’s Sam and Sofia on a camel in front of the pyramids at Gaza. I love the sky in this picture.

Little Passports Subscription Box Review – April 2015 Dig Kit

This is my son’s souvenir from Egypt – a dig kit! By following the instructions on the back, my son will use actual archaeological procedures to dig into the pyramid and hunt for treasures! Either that or he will pound it against a wall and crack it open. In either case, the treasure inside will be either (spoiler alert) a tiny golden sarcophagus or an ankh. Fun!

Verdict: I really think Little Passports is a quality subscription for children in my sons’ age range. My older son really enjoys it a lot. Children this age seem to love collecting things, and all the little tokens they send are perfect. I think they do a great job replicating a care package from someone who really does care! I don’t think the retail value of the items will ever amount to much, but the value of this subscription is not in the actual value of the materials included, it’s in the educational value. He learns not just where a country is, but about the culture, the food, the industry, and many other things about each country! That’s awesome!

  1. My geography-obsessed son has the U.S.A. subscription. We loved it, but after about 8 months ran out of pages on the field guide. They didn’t send a new one to finish our year subscription, so I sent an email. We were told we could purchase another book for $10 or print or own pages. I was pretty disappointed that the subscription didn’t provide another book. He has since given up on the sub and doesn’t even care if it renews. 🙁

  2. The pyramids are at Giza. There are no pyramids in Gaza. 🙂

    • Oooops! I meant Giza! LOL, good catch!

  3. This looks like a great sub! Cute, very well curated, for a reasonable price. Thanks for the review!

    • Thanks Bets!

  4. This looks really cute! I’m thinking of giving this as a gift to a niece & nephew – do you know if they offer just a 1 month or 3 month gift that I won’t have to worry about canceling?

    • Hi heat! I checked their website and it looks like gift subscriptions also auto-renew. But you should double check. Maybe contact customer service? Hope that helps!

      • Thank you for checking! I’ll give them a call when bday time comes around. 🙂

    • The first box is the Explorer Kit (passport, map, mini suitcase, etc.) and then the following month starts all the country-specific info, which includes stuff to use with the Explorer Kit (stamp to put in the passport, sticker to put on the suitcase, refer to the map, etc.), so getting only one month isn’t worth it.

      I planned to get my niece 3-4 months for her birthday last year, but she liked it so much I felt guilty cancelling–so over a year later, guess what I am still getting billed for every month…

      • Oh, I see…. That’s very helpful, thank you!

        And I had to laugh at your predicament bc it sounds exactly like something that would happen to me! I guess you’re set for every birthday and Christmas for a while!
