Little Passports USA Subscription Box Review – September 2015

Little Passports USA Subscription Box Review September 2015 - Package

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).

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!

What do you think of Little Passports: USA Edition?

  1. I have an 8.5 year old who loves geography- loves maps/ atlases, etc. Do you think the world one is too juvenile? Is the US one better for older kids

  2. I have to say I love the fact that you want your kids to suffer through rolls of film as well! There really should be something they have to go through so they will appreciate modern convenience!

    • Lol! Seriously!

  3. This looks like a fun subscription! I would have loved this as a kid.

    My kids really like scratch books–I even like them as an adult! Your comments about the non-digital camera and kids reading aloud are spot on. Thanks for the detailed review, Anna. 🙂

    • Thank YOU for all your support, chris!

  4. Twommy, you can get $10 off an annual subscription with the code “SPECIAL10” I think any time. Otherwise, they do have codes from time to time if you look for them. I actually got my World Edition on a Black Friday special, and I think it was half price for the first month or so. Hope this helps!

  5. Looks like a great way to introduce the kids to information about the states in manageable bits. Are there ever coupons/promos offered for any of the little passport subs, Anna?

    • I did some poking around on the web and found Fall15 for 15% off- that’s the best I’ve found so far.

      • Good deal, twommy!
