Brazil is THE destination to learn about this summer.
For the many of us who aren’t heading over there – I have good news. Along with the plenty of books in our directory, there are several subscription boxes available that offer a nice, at-home, Brazil experience. And as you know, I love a good travel-themed subscription box for kids.
Please note: Some of the links are affiliate links. But all of the opinions are my own.
Little Passports Subscription Box for Brazil
I’m three months into my Little Passports subscriptions box and a full review is coming, but I wanted to take a moment to share more about their Brazil box. It was the first country I received.
I think it’s a little late to receive the Brazil box before the Olympics, but what a perfect way to remind kids of their Brazil-love afterward. The package includes a letter from Sam and Sofia, information about native animals, stickers to place on an included map, passport, and suitcase, plus a small gift that is best described as a treasure. Yes, a treasure. In fact, I wasn’t ready to share it with my kids.
To round out the “stuff” there are also some related activities, a recipe for one of Brazil’s most popular desserts, and a password that gives you access to online fun. All of these little pieces do wonders to spark a child’s interest.
Brazil is part of the World Editions subscription, which is suitable for ages 6-10.
Try the World Subscription Box for Brazil
If you sign up for Try the World (and use code “kidstravelbooks” for a 15% discount) RIGHT now, you’ll get the Brazil box filled with treats and yummies from our favorite 2016 host country. I just received my box a short time ago and let me say – it is packed! I want to say my favorite thing about the box is that all these items are things I’ve never seen at my local grocery store. But, I think what I love most is that they include a “How to use your Brazil Box” insert and the theme is “Host a Summer Churrasco Party”. Don’t mind if I do.
The menu includes six different items/recipes and suggestions – and I want to try them all. In fact, that’s my plan for next Friday. During our Olympics Opening Ceremonies party.
No pictures of our party now and I apologize. I wanted to get this post out sooner so that you can order if you want to. Maybe you’ll get it for the Opening Ceremonies, but if not you can dine during your favorite sport, or wait until the closing night celebration.
As I said earlier, Brazil is the box currently available for new subscribers. If you are looking at this later, you may be able to get the box here. Otherwise, you can order the items (and more) individually.
Surprise Ride Subscription Box for Brazil
Update: Unfortunately Suprise Ride doesn’t seem to be making boxes anymore. We still have other information about subscription boxes here.
I haven’t received a full or partial box from Surprise Ride. I actually just learned about them last week.
If you remember, back in June I showcased my friends (I can call them that now after writing about their books for a week!) during #MollyWeek. The week was dedicated to their series, Molly and the Magic Suitcase, because of the launch of the most recent title, Molly Goes to Rio de Janiero.
Last week I found out that the same book, Molly Goes to Rio de Janeiro, was part of the Surprise Ride subscription box under the theme Brazil and the Olympics. Awesome!
If you haven’t bought Molly Goes to Rio de Janeiro – this is the time and this is the way to do it. Surprise Ride comes with the book, games, snacks, crafts, and more. It really looks like a lot of fun. And even though I haven’t experienced it myself, I can say that any friend of Molly’s a friend of mine.
You can order the box directly on their website.
