Little Passports Review

I wish I had this when I was a child! Little Passports is such a fun way for the kids to learn more about World Geography. Little Passports is a monthly subsciption service that introduces kids to a new country every month.

This was the very first shipment, which included everything to get started on the world journey... a nice map of the world, a passport to mark off which countries Sam and Sofia have visited, a photo of Sam and Sofia in their garage, a boarding pass which has a secret code you need to go online for more learning adventures, an activity sheet and a letter from Sam introducing himself and Sofia and letting your kids know they will be receiving more from their visits around the world.

Little Passports makes Geography exciting. Although, this is only the first shipment, the kids were so excited to receive a package in the mail from them and are looking foward to learning about traveling around the world.

After the first shipment, the remaining shipments will include little thumbtack stickers to place on the world map to show the country Sam and Sofia are visiting. Included will also be a glossy 4x6 photo that has to do with that particular country, souvenir(s), learning/activity page on that country, passport sticker of that country's flag to place in passport, boarding pass with a secret code to the Little Passports website for activities and games, a travel sticker to place on the luggage, and a nice letter from Sam and Sofia telling you about their visit in that particular country.

When the kids first opened the package, they loved the little blue suitcase! It's a nice size for their little hands and very easy to open and close.

They opened up the suitcase and were delighted.
Here's what was inside:

My favorite part is the map. The size is perfect, about 3 ft wide.

Little Passports has a variety of subscription offers and you can cancel anytime.
It's pretty affordable, even if you pay by month.

As a homeschooling parent, I find that Little Passports can be a great supplement to our Geography lessons. This is obviously not a complete geography lesson, but Sam and Sofia make it fun to explore the countries further.

I can't wait to try out the Little Passports USA Edition for 7-12 year olds! :)
