I got the India suitcase as a gift for my friend who has 4 kids. She absolutely loved it! Was great to give something fun and educational.

This product is not only great for parents but also nannies. As a nanny, I am always looking for things for kids to do. They had a great time making their Brazilian crafts and still ask for Brazilian tacos!

I bought a Brazil suitcase for my 8 year old and then a India suitcase. My daughter goes to Montessori and I really like that she was using all senses in learning. Also, we went through the suitcase once to go over it, and then she was able to do it by herself without my help!
