Little Passports World Edition features a new country “each month with:
- Letters from Sam & Sofia
- Fun souvenirs
- Activity sheets
- Stickers for your suitcase, passport & map
- Access to Boarding Zone for more online games”
Little Passports sent Sam and Sofia to Peru this month! Who doesn’t want to see Manchu Picchu?
Sam and Sofia walked almost four days along the Inca Trail to reach Machu Picchu! They learned from their guide, Atuc, that the terraces around the city were made from granite stones that were cut so perfectly that cement wasn’t needed to hold them together (and they’ve survived earthquakes!) They also went to the Amazon rainforest and learned that butterflies know when it’s going to rain.
We received Peru stickers for our Little Passports’ passport and for the suitcase too. As Cira put her sticker on the suitcase I heard her read out all the countries Little Passports has visited so far- I’m so happy her global awareness is improving with this subscription.
A postcard about Machu Picchu and a “boarding pass” are included. The boarding pass provides a code for entering the Little Passports Boarding Zone where kids can access online games.
The activity sheets are really interesting! Both my daughter and I typically learn something new from them. This time we learned about the names of some Peruvian food. I’ve eaten at Peruvian restaurants a few times and the food was delicious!
The souvenir this month was a butterfly indicative of those living in the Rainforest. You wind up the butterfly (the tension goes in the rubberbands), place it in a book and then when the book is opened, it flies away. The items goes well with the theme but it already broke it…easy come, easy go.
Verdict: We consistently enjoy Little Passports World Edition. Both Cira and I learn new things each month and I’m a fan of anything that may increase my child’s knowledge of the world (and hopefully inspires future travel!) The activities in the box are both fun and informative. Cira likes reading about Sam and Sofia and she always looks forward to learning where they traveled that month. The cost of $16.95 (box plus shipping) seems fair for what the activities and items in this box.
