Discover the World with Little Passports
|July 26, 2012||Filed under Reviews|
My fiance likes to think I’m a world traveler. I was born and raised in South Korea and I was fortunate to have all-expense paid trip to Spain, France, and Portugal. I’m hoping to add Mexico to that list in the near future. The greatest thing would be taking my daughter and fiance to Korea to meet my mom’s side of the family.
As I child, I dreamed of exploring the world, going on mission trips and changing the world through the Peace Corps.
Even if we won’t be able to go anywhere anytime soon, one thing that appealed to me about Little Passports is the ability to instill awareness of other countries appreciation for other cultures.
We received the First Month’s Explorer Kit, which includes:
An adorable suitcase with an introductory letter from Sofia and Sam (our “tour guides”)
An activity sheet
AND…a boarding pass, which you enter online to unlock new countries.
The countries you unlock depend on your subscription level and currently, there are 24 (that’s TWO YEARS worth of content) for you and your children to explore.
This is what it looks like upon logging into the “World” Section.
My daughter is great with puzzles and enjoyed that, but the Trivia was beyond her level of comprehension, so I tested my knowledge and found out how little I knew.
I haven’t received a Monthly Adventure Kit, so I cannot speak for its contents, but you can read more about what might be included here.
The Little Passports idea is genius and a great starting point. Parents or teachers can easily add to the kits for a more in-depth study. I would have been totally on board if history was taught to me in this way. It’s educational and pretend play wrapped in one.
You can avoid those ridiculously long flights! Then again, maybe this would be a great way to prepare for international travel.
