Let Your Child Travel The World From Home

Last week we received this amazing package from Little Passports to try out! This is called the Explorer Kit and comes with the suitcase, a map of the world, a passport, a letter from "Sam", stickers, a boarding pass with online codes, a picture of Sam and Sofia and an activity page. All of this sells for $10.95. Such a great price when you realize how that it costs about the same as two happy meals from a fast food joint.

The story is that Sam, while visiting his Aunt finds a scooter that takes him to whatever location he wants. He lets his friend Sofia in on his discovery and together they decide to travel the world and write letters to their pen pals (your child). They will also send them little souvenirs from the places they visit, pictures, stickers for the suitcase and map marker stickers so you can track their travels.

Every month your child will receive a package similar to this.

My in-laws moved back to their home country this summer and it has been a great way to talk more about where they are. They now know where Spain, New Zealand and Australia are along with the United States where they know New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, California and Florida.

This is a great way to show your kids that the world is a lot bigger than their own back yard. Beside the fact that kids love getting mail (each package is address to your child), they will learn about their world and have a fun way to experience traveling through their new friends Sam and Sofia.

My daughter was so happy that Sam and Sofia sent them all these cool things that she made them a picture that she wants me to send them. I'll have to work on the answer to that one. "I made them this beautiful picture, because they sent us all these cool things."

I really love this product and will sign on so that my children continue to receive the packages from Sam and Sofia.

Check out Little Passports today.

Great idea for your child, your niece or nephew or any child you need to get a gift for. I think this is also a great idea for teachers to do with their class as a group. What a fun way to learn geography and explore the world.

  1. What a wonderful idea for children, I wish I had something like this when I was young, geography was one of my worst subjects. Thanks for the review, I'll keep it in mind when my grandson gets a little older.

    I think it is so sweet that your daughter wants to reciprocate, she is such a darling!
