Little Passports Subscription Box Review – November 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 Argentina! Tango! Steaks! Dinosaurs! It seems like a really wonderful place to visit. On the left is a letter from Sam and Sofia, the Little Passports characters, chronicling their adventures in Argentina. 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.
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. Except this month, they’re not in the postcard! Oh well, that happens from time to time. This month’s landmark is Iguazu Falls, which, if I’m not mistaken, is the widest waterfall on earth at 1.7 miles. We would love to see that!
Little Passports also sends a small souvenir every month, and this month they sent a little paleontology dig kit (with an embedded fossil). My son has had several of these thanks to subscription boxes, and fortunately, he loves them! He grabbed this one up and finished it in no time! The cool thing is that he can now save the fossil as his souvenir from Argentina.
The verdict: We are big fans of Little Passports! It’s like getting a care package from a good friend or relative, and it’s very educational as well. Plus kids love collecting stuff, and my children have enjoyed adding these little stickers and other items to their passports and suitcases every month.
