Little Passports World Edition July 2018 Unboxing Review
This is our letter from Sam and Sofia who send us items from their travels each month. This time they visited Japan and they included some educational information and also a picture of them in Japan.
We received a map pin sticker to mark our destination on the World Map that we received in our Explorer Kit from the first box. This is a great lesson in geography as you have your child locate and mark the country.
We received a sticker with the Japanese flag on it to add to our passport that we also received in our Explorer Kit.
They included this boarding pass and Japan sticker to add to our suitcase (also from our Explorer Kit). The front of the boarding pass features a picture, while the back has a link to their website and some extension activities for the featured country. The site has photos of Japan, directions on making sushi and other great educational information.
This is the activity book that we received which has several activities as well as some fun facts about Japan. There is a recipe for dorayaki, a section on haikus, and a craft we can complete (materials are not provided). These are all really fun and perfect for the targeted age range of 6-10-year-olds. I think it gives a great sense of Japanese culture and is both engaging and educational.
This cute little sushi eraser was our souvenir for the month.
We also received this origami kit with several different papers. I thought this was a really fun activity, although I learned that I am not very good at origami at all! The directions just didn’t make sense to me since it was all in pictures and a kid might get frustrated with their attempts, or they might just have a better understanding of it than I do! Either way, I think this was a great activity and a kid would definitely enjoy it. Especially since this is a skill and art form they can continue to work on as they get older!
Coral Reef Kit – Retail Value $12.95
We received this coral reef kit in our box as well. This did 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. This is a really fun idea and is simple enough. You get materials to make 3 different coral reef forms and also a companion guide for Australian adventures. This would make a unique gift idea for a kid and a fun add-on item.
Verdict: This month’s Little Passports World Edition was a lot of fun. I think that they had a lot of great educational information about Japanese culture and approached it in a fun way. The activity booklet had many activities and they were further supported by the fun extension activities from the website. I would have loved for some materials to complete some of the suggested crafts, but I still think that at $17.95 ($14.95 + $3.00 shipping and not including the add-on kit) we received a fair value this month.
