Little Passports USA Subscription Box Review – December 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!
Every month, the USA edition focuses on two states. This month is Oklahoma and Maine! We always receive a lovely postcard from each state.
The main item in each month’s package is an activity book with state geography related games, puzzles and trivia.
This is the same activity book, upside down and backwards! Each state is given half the content of the book. Whenever I hear Oklahoma, I yell out, “Go Sooners!” I have no idea what that means. Maybe this month we will find out.
Somehow I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the activity book this month! Oooops. In any case, it looks pretty fun, and absolutely packed with information! Little Passports does a great job diversifying the types of activites in different books from month to month, too.
This is the sticker page for this month. There are stickers to put in the field guide my son received in his welcome package that show each state’s bird, flower, flag, etc. There are also map markers for the US map he received.
Little Passports USA also seems to send a papercraft for each state every month. This is a little punch-and-assemble cardboard vintage motorcycle from Oklahoma. Fun!
Maine’s papercraft is a punch-and-assemble cardboard lobster. That’s too funny!
The Verdict: Little Passports USA is a hugely educational subscription, packed with tons of information. Doing activities and collecting various stickers is actually a really effective way to help kids learn, it turns out. I think this subscription would be wonderful for children who are home schooled! The papercrafts are not the most interesting things in the world to my son, but he’s warming up to them.
