Little Passports is the pitch-perfect gift for the bigger (and no doubt even Savvier) kiddo in your life. It brings the entire world to your 6-10-year-old's mailbox, one country at a time, one month at a time. Your child's new Little Passport pals, Sam and Sofia, send monthly recaps of all their adventures in personalized packages with letters, trinkets, music, tales from the various spots visited. Sam and Sofia get the jetlag, your child gets the suitcase stickers, map markers and dreamy tales of globe-hopping fun. A smart, carefully crafted toy for grade-schoolers that never veers into the too-old-too-fast tween slickness -- a Savvy pick indeed!
