Note: Our Little Passports package from May got lost in the mail! I emailed customer service, and they are sending us a replacement. I just wanted to let everyone know to look for my review of the May package some time later this month!
This month’s destination is Mexico! Viva Mexico! On the left is a letter from Sam and Sofia, the Little Passports characters, chronicling their adventures in Mexico. 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 are a couple of items to help my sons brush up on their Spanish during the summer. PLUS, there’s a recipe inside for chicken mole! YUM!
These are other standard items that come every month with Little Passports. On the lower left is a luggage tag from Mexico to put on my son’s suitcase they sent him in the first month. On the lower right is a sticker to decorate the suitcase. At the top is a pin to put on his world map, and a flag to put in his passport.
This is a beautiful postcard! It features Sam and Sofia (in full flamenco garb) in front of what I believe are the Steps of Temple Kulkulkan (El Castillo) at Chichen Itza.
This is my son’s souvenir from Mexico, and it really made me giggle. There really is no better souvenir from Mexico for a child than the iconic ball in a cup game. This one is really tiny, though! I hope it doesn’t affect game play too much.
Verdict: My son and I really like Little Passports! It’s packed with so much information about different countries of the world, I expect him to be an expert at world geography pretty soon! He also loves all the collecting that goes along with this subscription. The value of the items included will never amount to much in terms of cash, but the true value lies in the educational and fun qualities of this subscription. Plus it really feels like the kind of care package a good friend or family member might send from an overseas vacation!
