Little Passports : Review
Since Lewis started school I have really found that his brain really functions like a sponge, he loves to remember things and regularly surprises me with his knowledge of various places. It was only the other week when he recognised Big Ben, The London Eye and Buckingham Palace, the only place he had ever visited was Buckingham Palace and that was over 12 months ago!
He loves to learn about different countries and cultures, last year in school he spent some time learning about Kenya and comparing his life to a child’s living there. Whereas earlier this year we visited Tenerife and he really did pay attention to his environment there and how life there is different to ours.
Since our holiday I have been eager to introduce Lewis to other countries and what is so special about that location. With the help of Little Passports we are now beginning our world travels but from home.
Little Passports is a monthly subscription service offering fun and engaging products for children aged 3-12 years, available in 2 different packages to us in the UK we have the Early Explorers, for children aged 3-5 years and the World Edition for children aged 6+. For our review we are focusing on the World Edition ideal for Lewis where he can discover a new country every month.
Your subscription will start with an Explorer Kit (pictured above) which you receive on your first month, this set kit includes everything you need to get started (all pictured below); a blue suitcase, passport, wall-sized world map, a welcome letter from Sam & Sofia, stickers, photo, activity sheet and a boarding pass which gives you online access to games.
This starter pack is designed to give your child a starting point to their adventures, the suitcase is designed to store all the items which your child will receive.
With a monthly subscription your child will receive an envelope (as below) every month. Each month will feature a different country for your child to explore. Our first country we are visiting is Japan.
Each monthly pack will contain the following items; A letter from Sam & Sofia from that country, a couple of fun souvenirs, activity sheet, stickers for your child’s suitcase, country flag sticker for passport, a pin sticker for world map, a photo and a boarding pass with online code for games.
With Lewis’s passport stamped he swiftly went to find Japan on this world map of which took him sometime but it’s good for him to learn just how far away he is from certain countries. The souvenirs in his pack were a sushi eraser and an origami set which I must admit will be a little difficult to him to master right now but we shall be working on it together soon. In the meantime all Lewis’s activity sheets, letters, photos, passport etc are stored away neatly in his suitcase for use another day.
I really think this subscription is fantastic, perfect for young children to learn about the world around them and with the added suitcase to keep their documents tidy and safe it’s less frustrating on us parent finding papers lying around.
The World Edition subscription service is available in 3 different plans of which you can see below.
