Little Passports Subscription Box Review – December 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
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 Russia! This is another country on my bucket list. On the left is a letter from Sam and Sofia, the Little Passports characters, chronicling their adventures in Russia. This subscription is for my seven-year-old son, and I like to ask him to read the letter to me for practice. He’s getting really good at reading aloud! On the right is an activity booklet with games and puzzles. This month there’s a recipe for blinis! I think it’s about time to introduce my family to the joys of Russian food.
Every month, Little Passports sends these little collectible items to document the destination. On the left is a luggage tag to put on my son’s suitcase they sent in the welcome package. On the upper right is a sticker for the suitcase. Below that is a sticker of the country’s flag to put in his passport and a pin sticker to mark the world map. Both the passport and the world map were also included in the welcome package.
Another standard item that comes every month is a postcard with the Little Passports characters standing in front of an iconic landmark. This month’s landmark is the Kremlin! What a beautiful building!
Little Passports also sends a small souvenir every month, and this month they sent a some stickers of Russian things. My son loves stickers, but this is kind of a weak souvenir. There are so many cool things that are unique to Russia! I would have loved to have seen them include matryoshka, or a small nutcracker, or a little bear.
The verdict: We are big fans of Little Passports! This month’s souvenir wasn’t too exciting, but they are usually much better. Aside from that, Little Passports is really an affordable way to teach your children about world geography, languages and culture.
