Little Passports Subscription Box Review – July 2015
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.
This month’s destination is South Africa! Zef Side! On the left is a letter from Sam and Sofia, the Little Passports characters, chronicling their adventures in South Africa. 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 the activities are mostly about safari animals.
These are other standard items that come every month with Little Passports. On the left is a luggage tag from South Africa to put on my son’s suitcase they sent him in the first month. On the upper right is a sticker to decorate the suitcase. Beneath that is a pin to put on his world map, and a flag to put in his passport.
This is a postcard of a photo taken at Kruger National Park. We love elephants! It’s a little unusual, though, because usually Sam and Sofia are in the postcard.
This is my son’s souvenir from South Africa – a bird whistle! This is fun and fits the theme very well. I’m glad they still make toys like this.
The verdict: My son loved this month of Little Passports because he loves collecting all the things they send, and he likes doing the activities and playing with the little toys a lot. I was a little disappointed because I feel like South Africa has so much more to offer than safari. Safari could be a theme for almost any country in Africa, but South Africa has a rich history, amazing sea life, and really unique pop culture, for example. This felt like it could be about Kenya or Tanzania. It was still a good, educational package for my son; I just thought it was a little generic. I don’t mean to be overly critical! Little Passports is still great!
