We’re clear that if you buy a product from Our Little Globe, we want to provide a quality, unique and fun gift that will keep your child occupied and be used again and again. That’s why our boxes have been give the once over by our super testers before they even reach your mini adventurers. If they like it, we’re confident your child will too.
Our boxes have been created especially for 5 – 10-year olds and are aimed at those who have a sense of adventure and who may have begun to express an interest in the world around them.
We subtly teach acceptance and understanding through our boxes by setting out the unique attributes of each country in a fun and interesting way. This is especially important at a time when we see so much bad news in our world.
Our aim is to be as versatile as possible in the packages we offer. Therefore, you have the option of a ‘monthly’, 6 or 12-month package. It will never be hard to cancel your subscription, but if you do feel like it’s not working for you and your child, we’d really appreciate your feedback before you cancel. Just contact us at [email protected]
A full list of what’s included, can be found here.
Our subscription service begins with a knock on the door or sound of the letterbox when their first Our Little Globe box arrives. Addressed to the mini-adventurer, the personalised theme follows through to the enveloped letter from their new friend in each country. Plus, they can personalise their own multi-country passport, with their name, address, passport picture as well as room to note down their favourite country! We also provide stickers for your explorer to decorate their unique suitcases. So yes! Lots of personalisation with very little effort from you.
Yes, yes and more yes! Our Little Globe’s creators have experience of blended families. It was our aim to create a gift that provides an uncomplicated way to encourage conversation, play and most importantly fun into your time together. The box is easily transportable and will become a unique part of your time spent together as you plot your next adventures. Plus knowing their package will arrive every month at ‘mums’ or ‘dads’ house ensures you can plan some or all your time together.
Our Little Globe’s message is about inclusivity and spreading a message of tolerance and acceptance in a way that is easy to understand for young minds. Our boxes are perfectly equipped to start the conversation that different is brilliant.
We don’t talk about political acts or potential changes to the governance of country until it has legally been recognised by the relevant authorities. The boxes focus on what it is like to live in different parts of the world and the way others live their lives. We always remain positive but equally don’t shy away from painting a realistic picture of a country.
The creators of Our Little Globe both live in the North West of England. We were devastated by the terror attack on the Manchester Evening News Arena, but we know that one atrocity doesn’t define a City or indeed a Country. We agree that focussing on acts of war, including terrorism – may lead to a fear of travel and exploring which is not something we subscribe too.
If you are wishing to have these types of conversations with your mini adventurer, we like the idea of “looking for the good, in a bad situation.” For example, pointing out the firefighters, the policemen protecting people from danger and the doctors saving lives.
You can buy a single subscription for each child or they can share one subscription between multiple siblings. If you’d like. you can add in both their names when it comes to telling us who the gift is for, for example, Cillian and Finn.
