My son and I were really excited to purchase this box to add to his Social Studies learning lessons. I'm homeschooling my son and needed to find something that would keep his attention during lessons and where he can be hands-on. I also needed something that had all of the material to make planning the lessons easier for me. We received the box sooner than expected. The first box was Italy, it contained a world map, and a smaller detailed map of Italy, some Italian candy, and an Italian dessert recipe. It also contained a letter from a travel pen pal (I thought this was cute), an Italian fact brochure, a DIY Venetian mask kit (only includes one but you can find more on Amazon), and a fact sheet to go along with it. This box also included Italian flashcards for basic phrases and silly saying Italians use. It has information on opera and youtube links. There is one question sheet but depending on the age of your child, I would probably modify this. it also comes with an iron-on flag of the country theme, but unfortunately, I received the France flag patch instead of the Italy flag. The flag colors are similar, so I understand the mistake but I'd just beware of this issue. I decided to order the correct patch from amazon. They were also a few typos in the printouts but we were able to read through them. I only wish this had more of an activity...

I purchased the kit for two our our grandchildren and they love it. Their grandfather and I have traveled quite a bit, so it is a great way for us to talk with them and share stories of travel and learning about different parts of the world. Every month a new country!

I just ordered the 3 month subscription for my 11 year old son. He enjoys cooking, so making the recipes was fun for him! He also thought the backpack was 😎 cool! Can’t wait to get the next one!

This has been great for our kids! Such an interesting way to introduce them to different countries, cultures, food, and history. Definitely the most cost-effective way to see the world, and spend some quality time with the kiddos.

Great Kit!!
We ordered a six month subscription and my son loves traveling to the different countries.
He is learning a lot about the individual countries and he loves finding the different areas on the maps and atlas. Also love the Virtual tours.
