We were sent the second of our Little Passports subscription for the purpose of this review. Please note that this post contains affiliate links.
Our second package from Little Passports arrived a while ago and I've only just got round to sitting down with Zach to review it. Life is sometimes so hectic and the last few weeks it has been just that. So last weekend I was adamant that I would get this review done. We absolutely love Little Passports and Zach is always excited when the package comes through for him.
The second package in our subscription was World Landmarks. In the package we received:
- 5 plastic models of Landmarks which were the Eiffel Tower, the Taj Mahal, a Sphinx, the Leaning Tower of Post and the Great Wall of China.
- A 20 page activity booklet
- A flashlight adventure card with lots of Landmarks to look at.
- A landmark sticker for his suitcase
- A wall sticker
When we first opened it, he immediately loved the little models and we sat on the sofa going through and discussing what they were and where they were on his map. They then took pride of place on our sideboard where they have remained and every now and then he picks them up and brings them all over to me to play with. His favourite seems to be the Eiffel Tower and by the end of it, he could pronounce it himself.
He particularly loved the flashlight adventure in this set. It's such a cool little thing that when you put the 'torch' underneath the cellophane, it creates a light that allows you to highlight specific areas.
He loved to set the flashlight over one of the Landmarks and match it up with ones he had. Here he is matching up the Eiffel Tower.
With the activity book there are still certain things that he's not quite ready for yet but definitely lots that he can do. He doesn't have the greatest attention span yet so we have to do anything like this a) when he's in the right mood and b) for just a few minutes at a time. In this book he really enjoyed the page where he had to match the Landmarks to the ones he now had…
The page where he had to decide day and night (note that he purposefully circled the moon on the daytime one because he was being silly – he was clearly saying out loud that it was a daytime picture!)…
And the page where he had to follow the path to find which one went to the landmark…
Once again the Little Passports subscription has proved a hit in our house. I love that it is so educational for him and he loves that it's just super cool.

Once again, thanks to Little Passports for sending this to us for the purpose of his review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
P.S. Did you spot the rabbits in one of the photos?!
