January 2016 Little Passports EE "Landmarks" Review
I received my second Little Passports Early Explorers package almost a month ago, but I haven’t had the chance to meet with my little cousin yet to go over the box. Instead of delaying a review further, I’ve decided to look through the package on my own and give my feedback on the contents.
For the uninitiated: Little Passports is a subscription box that provides activities for children from ages 3 to 8. They offer a variety of subscriptions and I’ve been receiving their Early Explorers package, which is intended for children ages 3 to 5. I did a review with my 3-year-old cousin in this post, and considering that is the introductory box for the 3-month subscription, you’ll likely want to check out that review before proceeding with this one; all new subscribers will receive an introductory kit in their first month, then receive monthly themed packages thereafter.
The package I received in January (the one I’m reviewing in this post) had a “Landmarks” theme. The picture above shows some of the box’s initial contents, including a map of landmarks with accompanying stickers and a postcard from Max and Mia, the characters who will join your child on their journey throughout the world.
Each Little Passports box includes a passport booklet that contains a variety of fun activities, as previewed below.
Xander really enjoyed the activity booklet he received in the introductory kit and I expect he’ll enjoy this one a lot too.
The package also includes a sealed booklet called “Flashlight Adventures.” I’m not quite sure what this is for and I didn’t want to break the seal to find out. However, I assume it’s filled with activities of some kind like the other items in the monthly package.
The package also included little figurines of landmarks, which I, as an adult, think are super cool! The figurines are well-done and I can imagine a child playing with them, while familiarizing themselves with the landmarks in the process. I believe having physical, 3d representations of the landmark can also help the learning process for children by engaging their kinesthetic senses. which is another reason I appreciated this part of the package.
Lastly, the package included a number of smaller additional items. These items include a pack of landmark-themed cards, a “landmark” luggage tag to go along with the LP suitcase (received in the introductory kit), a sticker, and a fun fact card.
Overall, this Little Passports Early Explorers box has a fun theme with items that complement the introductory kit that Xander received in December. I’ll plan to give the package to him the next time I see him and I expect he’ll enjoy the items as much as he did the last time.
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary box in exchange for an honest review.
