Little Passports USA Subscription Box Review – September 2015
Little Passports is a subscription service for children that teaches them all about the world we live in – geography, languages, cultures – via a monthly care package filled with souvenirs. They recently started a subscription service for older children, age 7-12, that focuses on the USA. My nine-year-old has outgrown Little Passports’ regular offering, so I decided to sign him up for the USA Edition.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription: Little Passports: USA Edition
The Cost: $12.95 (+$3 shipping = $15.95) per month
The Products: Letter, journals, postcards, and activities to help children learn more about the United States.
Ships to: USA!
This first month, we received the Welcome Kit. Every month going forward, we will receive packages that focus on two states. As with the World Edition, every package starts with a letter from the Little Passports characters, Sam and Sofia. He may be nine, but I will still make my son read this to me every month! Forcing my kids to read aloud to me is one of the true joys of parenting.
We already have tons of maps thanks to subscription boxes, but I am hoping Little Passports will send some sort of sticker to put on the map every month so we can see which states my son has already studied.
I can already tell that this is a much more grown-up subscription!
Inside the Field Guide, there are two pages for every state, with places to make notes and to affix stickers. This will definitely help deepen my son’s knowledge of our country!
Both of my sons have had several scratch books / pages thanks to subscription boxes, but fortunately they don’t seem to ever tire of them. I have to admit, the pictures they make with them are really pretty!
This is the item I was most excited to see in this box! I just really, really need my children to go through the whole process of using a camera (even a disposable one like this, 36 exposures), taking the film to get developed, waiting for an eternity to get the pictures back, and then seeing that half of them are terrible. Only then will they know the pain of analog film from the days of yore. Unfortunately, my nine-year-old is really into instragram at the moment (don’t worry, I watch him like a hawk), so I’m not sure how well this will work out.
The Verdict: Little Passports USA looks like it will be a great subscription for my nine-year-old! I think this was a wonderful welcome package, and I’m excited to see what future months look like!
