Little Passports ~ Review

We love travel around the world. But we don’t really. Instead we seek out other ways to explore different parts of the world. Little Passports is something new and a fun way to experience all those amazing and faraway places!  🙂

Little Passports offers two different packages for your family to “travel” with.

With the World Edition  you get!                             (Recommended age: 5-10 years old)
  • A fun travel suitcase with a letter from our globetrotting characters Sam and Sofia
  • World wall map
  • Travel passport
  • Fun stickers, an activity sheet, and access to online games and activities
Sam and Sofia visit a new country every month and send your child:

  • An adventure letter
  • Fun souvenirs
  • Stickers for your child’s suitcase, passport, and map
  • Photos from that country’s sites
  • Online games and activities in our Boarding Zone

See the countries Sam and Sofia will visit

Or you can visit the good ole US of A and then you get! (Recommended age: 7-12 years old) Discovery Kit

  • An introductory letter from Sam and Sofia
  • USA Field Guide
  • USA Scratch Book
  • USA Wall Map
  • Disposable Camera and Photo Scavenger Hunt
State adventure kits for future months

Sam and Sofia visit 2 new states every month and send your child:

  • A 32-page activity-packed journal covering 2 states
  • Stickers
  • Pop-out Models
  • Postcards
  • Access to more information and activities online

The cost can be a bit much, if you are frugal like me. haha  But with a number of different subscription options available, there is something that will well fit the family budget and the child’s interests.

So my kids loved this. My son (who is 4) absolutely adores his suitcase. This suitcase came “full” of goodies that he keeps in there still. Some days it goes with us wherever we go. So with this first package we received there was a fun postcard showing Sam and Sofia on their scooter “with GPS that can take us anywhere in the world.” There was also a letter for the kids; introducing Sam and Sofia and telling the story of this amazing scooter that goes all over the world.We got a great map of the world and a passport of course along with a little game. My oldest son really liked the game; decoding how to say hello around the world. My oldest is learning Chinese and Spanish right now. We have also enjoyed hosting exchange students from France (for a couple weeks in the summer), a dear girl from Brazil and Jordan, and a young man from China. We are expecting a sweet girl from China this fall now. ❤

These are such a fun way to encourage geography skills in younger children I think.  And what a fun way to explore Social Studies skills when they want to:

  • read maps
  • become aware of geography
  • learn about other cultures
  • connect with world communities

I have yet to find another way to make learning about the world around us so much fun! We are currently looking forward to the month to come. We do love this program and are planning on continuing it for our family; all three children (ages 8, 4 and 2) are so excited. My kids are now our mailman’s biggest fans and he doesn’t even know why!! haha
