Little Passports Subscription Box Review
This post contains affiliate links.
Have you had the chance to do any traveling with your kids yet? The Heir has done a little traveling with his biggest trip being a visit to Italy when he was 13 months old. He loved it! As much as we’d love to be able to take that kind of trip with the kids all the time, it’s just not always possible. I still want The Heir (and Petit Prince) to learn about the world and develop a love of traveling to new places. Now it’s possible to help foster that excitement about other countries and instil a little travel bug in your littles without having to take your toddler or preschooler on a flight (because if you’ve ever taken an international flight with a toddler you know just how fun that can be). I want to tell you about an awesome gift that The Heir received for Christmas this past year because it’s the perfect gift for the budding traveler in your life! It’s called Little Passports and it’s a monthly subscription box program for kids aged 3 to 12. Sounds neat, right? Let me share our experience with it so far!
What is Little Passports?
Little Passports is a monthly subscription box program for kids. There are three packages to choose from: Early Explorers, World Edition, and USA Edition. The Early Explorers package is for kids aged 3 to 5 and introduces them to a new world theme every month. The World Edition package is for kids aged 6 to 10 and focuses on a new country each month. The USA Edition is for kids aged 7-12 and features a different state every month. The Heir, who’s 3 years old, has the Early Explorers package, so that’s what I’ll be focusing on. The Early Explorers package follows Max, Mia, and their dog Toby as they travel around the world.
How does it work?
Each month, your child will receive a new package from Little Passports. The first month of the subscription starts with The Traveler Kit. This is when your child will receive their super adorable orange suitcase, a world map, a luggage tag, a “passport” activity book, stickers for decorating their suitcase, and a postcard from Max, Mia, and Toby. After that first month, a new package will be sent out monthly and it will showcase a new theme. Each month will include a new passport activity book, new stickers, souvenirs, and other fun activities for your child to enjoy!
What does The Heir think?
It’s a hit! What preschooler doesn’t love getting mail just for them? That in and of itself is thrilling for him. Even better than the excitement of the arrival of the package each month is the content. The first month was a lot of fun for The Heir. He got his adorable suitcase which he very quickly decorated with the continent stickers, a world map, his “passport” activity book, a postcard, some fun facts about each continent, and a luggage tag for his Little Passports suitcase. I love that the first month of the subscription comes with this suitcase. It’s not just a toy. It’s actually an excellent storage solution. Now his whole year of Little Passports activities can be kept in one place. We can go back and read over anything we want throughout the year, and all the odds and ends that come with each package can be nicely tucked away.
The passport activity book was also pretty great. It starts with a short story and then gets right into the activities. There’s a lot of fun packed into the passport, and it’s all helping The Heir hone one skill or another. There’s matching, observation, connecting the dots, counting, sticker placement, identifying patterns, and so much more! The Heir had a lot of fun going through the passport, and didn’t want to stop until he’d finished ALL the activities in it. I call that a win! I really liked that each activity focused on a different continent, so while The Heir was engaged in the activity, he was also learning something about the world.
The Heir is really looking forward to the next month’s package, and though he doesn’t know it yet, it’s already here! I can’t wait for him to open it up and see what it has in store!
