Little Passports Summer Camp In A Box!

If your child's summer camp has been canceled, check out Little Passport's NEW Summer Camp in a Box: 6 days of fun & discovery! It includes enough activities to keep little campers busy for SIX DAYS, up to THREE TO FOUR HOURS A DAY!  Two available products in this series include the Summer Camp in a Box: World Edition and the Summer Camp in a Box: Science Junior.

What Is Little Passports?

Not long ago, I was thinking of a cool birthday gift idea for my twins. Given their love of getting surprises in the mail and their keen interest in learning about the world, the Little Passports World Edition Subscription Box seemed like a great idea.

Little Passports is a subscription-based service designed for kids to teach them about the world. It starts with the first month that includes the box and the first set of activities, followed by monthly packets with different thematic activities and items to help children learn more about the world. Little Passports World Edition currently offers a few different thematic options:

Little Passports Early Explorers:

  • For kids ages 3-5 years old, each month has a different world theme with topics such as oceans, dinosaurs, and music.

Little Passports World Edition:

  • For kids ages 6-10 years old, each month focuses on a different country.

Little Passports USA Edition:

  • For kids ages 7-12, each month focuses on two new states.

Little Passports Science Expeditions:

  • For kids ages 9+, each month teaches about mysteries of the world through science activities.

Kids can use the wall-size map to discover new countries.

What Is The Little Passports World Edition?

Little PassportsFor my kids, I purchased the Little Passports World Edition, because I wanted it to support what they have learned from traveling and they have a general interest in learning more about the world.

My review? Little Passports World Edition is fantastic. It is the most popular subscription because each month the kids learn about a different country around the world.

We opted for the six-month subscription. Each month, my kids couldn't wait for their package to come.

The first month, my kids learned about Egypt, which was quite timely, as my son's 4th-grade class was studying Egypt at the time. In fact, he brought the items from his box to share with his class. In the months thereafter, they learned about several different countries, including Brazil, Japan, France, and Australia.

Little Passports World Edition now has a Premium upgrade, which was not available when we bought our subscription. With this option, children will receive a special curated book tied into whichever country they are learning about this month. I wish this option had been available sooner, as I love using books as a way for my kids to learn about other cultures. In fact, we often read a book before traveling to a new place to learn about it.

What's Included In The Monthly Little Passports World Edition Package

In the Little Passports World Edition, the first month, little explorers receive a box, which looks a bit like a suitcase. They also get:

  • A wall-sized map
  • Their own passport
  • An exclusive collectible country coin and coin board
  • Three soft animal squishies
  • A welcome letter from Sam and Sofia (who also write to them in subsequent months)
  • Access to online country-themed content

Every month thereafter, they receive either a toy, souvenir or activity and a special coin from each country.  They also get a new letter from Sam and Sofia about the new country.  My kids' favorite part is the activity sheets related to the country they are learning about.

Each package also includes a sticker they can put on their suitcase, one to put in their passport, and a thumbtack sticker to put on the wall map for countries they have visited or learned about. They also will get a tag for their suitcase, online extras, and various additional items that vary each month.

Each monthly mailing contains a variety of activities to interest little explorers.

Little Passports World Edition Subscription Options

There are three subscription options: monthly, six-months and 12 months, the most popular option.  You can pay monthly or a one-time annual fee.

You can upgrade to the Premium Edition, which includes the extra book.  If you are a teacher, it is good to know they also have classroom subscriptions or if you are just looking for a cure to the summer boredom, they have a variety of summer activity packs at various price points.

Why Little Passports is Great For Kids

Kids love getting mail, so it was very exciting for my kids to get something interesting and educational each month.  The Little Passports World Edition packages are pretty comprehensive, and they learn some interesting facts about another country. They can find it on the map, read about it, get an interesting item from that country, and do educational activities with the activity page.

There is enough to do in each package to keep them busy for a bit. My kids often go back to it and complete the activities later.

It is a fantastic way to expose kids to other countries and cultures, even if you can't take them to see that place.  Furthermore, it is mess-free (other than them leaving the parts around the house) and can be electronic-free if you choose to avoid the online options.

The World Edition is for kids ages 6-10 years old.

What Is Not So Great For Kids

For younger kids, it is not an independent activity, particularly if they are unable to read yet. They may enjoy the toy or activity that comes with the package or the stickers. But they may not be able to be left alone without an adult's help – you will need to work with them on it.

If your child isn't that interested in learning about other cultures, then perhaps this would be a waste of your money. In this case, you may opt for the month-to-month option. But, beyond that, other than the kids leaving the parts all over the house, I can't see why it is not great for kids.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Little Passports World Edition cost?

Little PassportsThe six-month subscription (which is the one I chose) currently costs $15.95 per month (or a one-time payment of $95.70+shipping.) I chose this option because I bought one for each of my three kids, knowing they would each want their own mail.

The 12-month subscription is $14.95 per month (or a one-time payment of $179.40+shipping) and the month-to-month subscription is $16.95 per month plus shipping.  If you want to upgrade to the Premium Edition, the prices currently are $25.90 for six-months (or a one-time payment of $155.40 + shipping), $24.90 per month for 12-months (or a one-time payment of $298.80 + shipping), and month-to-month is $26.90 per month plus shipping.

Teachers can order classroom subscriptions for $16.50 per month or a one-time payment of $99 per month. Looking to cure summertime boredom? There are also a variety of summer activity packs at various price points.

Is Little Passports World Edition worth the cost?

My review of Little Passports is that, yes, it really is worth the cost. You get a lot in each monthly mailing. Little Passports often has discounts, so you can sometimes get it for an even better price.

This assumes your kids will enjoy the box and do the monthly activities. If they put it away and never play with it, then I would say it is not worth the cost.

What age groups are Little Passports World Edition for?

The company says ages 6-10. My 6-year-olds enjoyed it, but could not do everything on their own. Personally, I think closer to 8-10 is a good age group, unless you get the premium that includes the book. Then the 6-year-olds would likely really enjoy having the book read to them.

Little Passports Review: Why You Should Order The Little Passports World Edition Subscription For Your Kids

The Little Passports World Edition subscription box is better than any toy or video game you could give your kids. Opening their eyes to the world and inspiring their interest in travel and language is an amazing gift that they can carry with them for a lifetime. It will also help them in school, as they make connections to places they have been or learned about through their Little Passports subscription and what they are learning in school.  It is like giving your kids the world.

    • Keri | 30th Mar 20

      Thank you for visiting! I am glad you like the product. It is a great one! The company is also offering a lot of free resources on their website as well!

  2. Kathy Walker | 13th Aug 19

    I never heard of this and thanks for sharing it with us. what a great idea! We always travel around the USA with our kids and even thou they are grown we still have conversations about the trips we took. This is a great way for your kids to learn and in the future decide where they would like to visit.

    • Keri | 30th Mar 20

      Thank you, Kathy. It is such a fun product for kids.

  3. Sarah | 6th Jan 20

    So cool! What a great way for kids to learn about the world around them. Plus who doesn’t like getting exciting packages in the mail! Such a fun way to learn!

    • Keri | 6th Jan 20

      Thank you for stopping by Sarah! It is a great way to foster kids’ curiosity and learn geography at a young age!

  4. Jenny Bhatia | 6th Jan 20

    I have been curious about this subscription box. My kids are a little older than this, but they would have loved doing research for future travels. Or studying up on a place they have already been. What a fun idea.

    • Keri | 6th Jan 20

      Thank you, Jenny. I am hoping they will make an edition for slightly older/preteen/teen kids. My kids love learning about the world, and two of my kids know so many flags already. It would be great to supplement kids language learning in school if they come out with something like this.

  5. Jen Towkaniuk | 6th Jan 20

    This looks so cool! I wish they’d had this when my kids were little. So neat to get a box in the mail and have it reach so much.

    • Keri | 6th Jan 20

      Thanks, Jen! Getting a surprise in the mail is so thrilling for kids, especially one with really cool items like this.

  6. Cate | 6th Jan 20

    I’ve actually heard of these before, how fun! I hope my kids love to explore and travel as they grow!

    • Keri | 6th Jan 20

      Thank you, Cate. I agree – inspiring and encouraging kids’ curiosity is one of the best gifts we can give them!

  7. D’Gauntlett | 7th Jan 20

    This is an awesome way for kids to learn about the world around them. Thank you for creating and sharing. My grandchildren and great-grand will be happy.

  8. Melanie | 7th Jan 20

    I heard about Little Passports a few months ago and definitely want to get the Early Explorers edition for my son. Thanks for review!

    • Keri | 9th Jan 20

      Thanks for visiting, Melanie. I am sure your son will love the Early Explorers, and it is a really great quality, educational product. Hope he enjoys it!

  9. Cynthia | 7th Jan 20

    Thanks for sharing! I’ve been eyeing this subscription box for a while. I didn’t realize they had different boxes for different ages. I also appreciated your honesty in the section about the kids’ ages. I think my oldest two would really enjoy this. Going to consider purchasing it for their next birthdays. Thanks for sharing!

    • Keri | 9th Jan 20

      Thanks for visiting, Cynthia. It makes a great birthday gift, one that they can look forward to each month and will last for years. Our kids still look at their boxes often. Hope they enjoy it!

  10. Amanda | 8th Jan 20

    Thanks so much for sharing! I’ve been considering getting this for my toddlers, but didn’t know anyone personally who had purchased it before!

    • Keri | 9th Jan 20

      Hello fellow-twin mama! We loved the subscription, and our kids still take out their suitcases regularly. They can last for a long time, and as your kids grow, they can continue to come back to it. But as a twin mama, you may want to get two :). Hope they enjoy it!

  11. Kristine Beaves | 8th Jan 20

    I have been looking for a great subscription box for my boys – I may have to give this one a try! My 4-year-old is very interested in other parts of the world right now. Thanks!

    • Keri | 9th Jan 20

      Thanks for stopping by, Kristine! My son started learning about other countries at age 4. His interest sparked watching the World Cup. Now, at age 10, he knows the flags of most countries. Little Passports is such a great product for fostering that curiosity, and it is so educational. I hope your son enjoys it!

  12. katy emanuel | 13th Mar 20

    I have always wondered about this subscription because my kids love learning about different countries, etc. Knowing what is in it, etc definitely helps me make a decision.

    • Keri | 30th Mar 20

      Thank you, Katy. It is a great product, and in fact, my son has brought in some of the items to share with his classmates when they were learning about a country. It is such a great program!

  13. Anna | 13th Mar 20

    I have always wanted to try something like this with my kids. It would be a great activity!

    • Keri | 30th Mar 20

      Thank you, Anna. I highly recommend it. It is a great program and is coming in handy right now!

  14. Maureen | 13th Mar 20

    This is darling! We homeschool our four boys and I’m always on the lookout for fun curriculum supplements. What a fun subscription program!

    • Keri | 30th Mar 20

      Thank you, Maureen. I am glad you enjoyed the post. It is a great product and would be great with a homeschool curriculum. Also, the company has a lot of FREE resources on their website right now if it helps!

  15. Harmony, Momma To Go | 16th Mar 20

    Yeah Im in that boat looking to order stuff like this to entertain and educate my kids over the next few months!

    • Keri | 30th Mar 20

      Thank you so much for reading the post. It is definitely a great program. And the company is offering a lot of FREE resources on their website as well!

  16. Amanda | 16th Mar 20

    We love our Little Passports subscription! My son got the early learners one for Christmas and it’s one of the best non toy gifts!

    • Keri | 30th Mar 20

      Thank you, Amanda. Yes, I totally agree. It makes a fantastic gift, not just because it is a fabulous product but also because the kids love to get the package each month. It is like Christmas keeps coming!

  17. Allison | 18th Mar 20

    I have been eying Little Passports for awhile but haven’t tried it out for awhile. Now is definitely the time to do though, since we can’t travel.

    • Keri | 30th Mar 20

      Thank you, Allison. Yes, now is a great time. And the company is offering lots of great resources on their site for FREE!

  18. Diana | 19th Mar 20

    I’ve been on the fence about Little Passports for my grandkids, and this just helped me turn the corner. Thanks

    • Keri | 30th Mar 20

      Thank you, Diana. I am glad it helped you. It is such a great product. It is coming in handy during this homeschooling time!

  19. Jamie | 17th Sep 20

    We have been doing this for three years now, evidently, because I just found out there are NO MORE COUNTRIES! There are so many countries of the world left to learn about!!! Why are there only three years worth of countries? We would’ve done this program until they graduated high school!

    • Keri | 18th Sep 20

      Hopefully, they will add more countries soon. Have you seen my post about the Best Travel Subscription Boxes for Kids and Families? There are several other options on there, and they may be good options to explore countries not included in the Little Passports Subscriptions.
