I get it for my 7yo. He loves it! He's not a reader, so he needs help with the worksheet and the online games, but he still really enjoys it. Each month he gets a letter, 2 little "souvenirs" from the country that they visited, a sticker for his passport, and pin sticker to put on his big map, a photo, and a luggage tag with your code for the online games. It's nothing fancy, but he loves to get mail, and loves adding his new treasures to his suitcase. (Your first kit is a suitcase, a passport, a big map, a photo, etc).
I think it would be a fun way to begin learning about different countries. I usually check out a few books from the library on whatever country Sam and Sophia go to for the month, and we usually make a recipe or two of food from the country as well!
Hope that helps!
i've been toying with getting this too.. i could jsut do it myself but im lazy
My kids are 6 and 5 and flipping LOVE this!
They love the tiny suitcases. I thought they were going to pass out when they got "real diamonds!" from Brazil.
We don't play the online games much but once a month or so, we have geography day using LP and just go nuts.
I hated Japan because I hate origami. That's pretty much my worst complaint.
The information is light in these. We use it to jump off into online or book research. I consider it more toy-ish than school-ish but it does get the kids enthusiastic about geopgraphy.
