Little Passports USA Subscription Box Review – October 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 was our first “regular” month of Little Passports USA; last month we received the welcome package. Every month, the USA edition is supposed to focus on two states. This month is Arkansas and Pennsylvania! We received a lovely postcard from each state.
The main item in this month’s package is this activity book.
This is the same activity book, upside down and backwards! Each state is given half the content of the book.
Here’s a peek inside to see what types of activities you might expect to find. It looks pretty fun, and absolutely packed with information.
This is the sticker page for this month. There are stickers to put in the field guide my son received last month that show each state’s bird, flower, flag, etc. There are also map markers for the US map he received last month.
This is a little punch-and-assemble cardboard fiddle in honor of Arkansas. Fun!
And a Liberty Bell in honor of Pennsylvania! I don’t know how much fun my son will think these are, honestly, but hopefully he will understand the significance.
The Verdict: Little Passports USA is shaping up to be a pretty interesting subscription for my nine-year-old. On the one hand, the educational value of the materials is there, no question. On the other hand, it’s all printed material. I don’t know how “into it” he will get. I guess we will find out in the coming months.
