Little Passports World Edition Explorer Kit and June 2018 Unboxing Review
The first box that you receive when you sign up for Little Passports World Edition will include your Explorer Kit. This includes a blue suitcase to store everything in, a passport and a large World Map that you can use for your monthly activities. We received a letter from Sam and Sofia who are the ones that will be sending us items each month from their travels. These will include a photo, an activity booklet, and boarding pass, all of which are also included in the Explorer kit.
Now let’s see what we received in this month’s box:
Included in our package was this brochure about the various gift options that they offer. They have several options for different age groups as well as several gift items in their shop.
This is our letter from Sam and Sofia which includes a little bit of educational information about our destination this month, Egypt. They also sent a photo of them in Egypt.
We received this little pin to mark our destination on the World Map that we received in our Explorer Kit. It took me longer to locate Egypt than I’d like to admit, but this is a cool idea for kids to mark all of the places that they get to explore through this subscription. It’s definitely a good lesson in geography.
We received a sticker with the flag of Egypt on it to mark our trip in our passport that we received in our Explorer Kit.
We also received this boarding pass to add to our suitcase. The front features a picture while the back provides a link to their website which you register for using the code from your Explorer Kit boarding pass. The site has music from other countries, fun facts, and some printable activities.
We received an Egypt sticker to add to our suitcase as well.
This is the activity book that we received which has several activities as well as some fun facts about Egypt and I think they were appropriate for the targeted age range of 6-10-year-olds. The activities such as the Hieroglyphics Code and Geography scramble might be a little difficult for the lower ages, but with some help, I’m sure they would be able to complete them. Older kids can probably do them independently, and if they get stuck, they do have an answer key on the bottom!
Our souvenir for this month was this Egypt Dig Kit. This was pretty fun and a great activity for the Egyptian theme. It was definitely pretty messy and much more time consuming than I thought it would be. I was a little more reckless in my digging, but a kid could spend a lot of time on this if they were actually being careful in their dig.
Weather Lab Science Kit– Retail Value $24.95
We received this weather lab kit in our box as well. This does not come with the monthly subscription but is an add-on item from their shop. One nice thing about this subscription is that you have the option to bundle shop items to ship with your subscription for free. I thought this kit was pretty cool with three different weather options from around the world to explore: volcanoes, tornadoes, and snow! It included little cards to describe each subject and the volcano activity is actually pretty involved, but you need a lot of items from home in order to actually do it. The clay, paint and 2 cups are the only materials included. This was a fun kit to receive as an add-on and I think it would make a fun gift option for a kid. It does seem a little bit pricey to me, but it seems unique and shipping is included if you bundle it.
Verdict: This was my first Little Passports World Edition box and I was a little underwhelmed. It is on the lower end of subscription boxes at $17.95 ($14.95 + $3.00 shipping and not including the add-on weather kit), and I think if you are utilizing the online activities, too, it is a good value. We received a few fun activities and some educational materials, but I am on the fence about how I feel on this one! My kids are a little too young for this, but I really think the value would depend a lot on how engaged your child is with this kit. Their reaction is usually what tips the scales for me. For what it’s worth, my kids did really enjoy the dig kit!
