Little Passports Subscription Box Review – August 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 India! So exotic! On the left is a letter from Sam and Sofia, the Little Passports characters, chronicling their adventures in India. I like to ask my son (age 9) to read the letter to me every month for some good practice. Plus the letter is always packed with educational tidbits! On the right is the activity booklet, which is filled with games and word puzzles that are specific to the monthly destination. This month the booklet is almost all about Indian food, which is absolutely fine with me! Mmmmm, it’s one of my favorite types of cuisine.
These are other standard items that come every month with Little Passports. On the left is a luggage tag from India 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. Above that is a pin to put on his world map, and a flag to put in his passport.
This is a postcard of a Sam and Sophia in India. OK, I have to be honest, this month I’m stumped! Are they somewhere famous in India? What are those cool Indian boats called?
This is a tiny and precious little stuffed Bengal tiger! It was immediately swapped for something with my seven-year-old who still loves stuffed animals. The swapping tradition is strong among my people.
The verdict: We have been big fans of Little Passports since we first started receiving these packages back at the beginning of the year. I think they very closely emulate a care package that a child might get from a good friend or family member traveling abroad. It’s also a very fun way to learn loads of things about foreign cultures and geography! I’m starting to think this might be a little young for my nine-year-old though, and I might start getting it for my younger son instead. It also might be time to look at USA Explorers for the older son!
