Each month thereafter a country specific package – in the form of a manila envelope – with a small souvenir, passport stickers, map sticker pins, activity pages, photos and another letter from Sam and Sofia.
Includes access to online games and activities. The World Edition is recommended for kids aged 5 – 10.
Cost: The monthly rate is USD$15.00 with tax and shipping. Different plans are available, details can be found on their website.

- Great for learning about new countries as well as geography.
- Opportunity to keep learning during summer/winter breaks.
- Kids are eager to get mail each month.
- Comparatively cheap for a monthly subscription box.
- The souvenirs are small – but decent for subscription cost.
- Only 23 countries are “visited.”
Recommendation: Yes, we would recommend this to a friend. We bought this as a birthday gift for our 7-year-old niece. We decided to go for the monthly plan since we weren’t sure how much she would like the subscription, and wanted to be able to cancel at any time rather than pay for the 12-month plan up front. Turns out: She. Loves. It. And she is uber intrigued by the souvenirs, particularly the amethyst stone she received in her Brazil box (see picture above). So, we will be continuing the subscription until it runs out.
