What Every Foreign Service Kid Needs

Foreign Service Life
February 11, 2012

I came across these fun items and couldn’t help thinking how ideal they would be as gifts for foreign service kids (or any kid with interests in government or travel).  The first is a White House Paper Doll set.  The kit contains a fun book about the First Family as well as 35+ dolls, outfits and play pieces for a child to enjoy.

The second is an interactive plane book.  It takes an in-depth look at how airports run and includes a mini plane that can be driven on 3 tracks within the book.  Both seem like great ways to introduce kids to the government and travel (two of the common themes in our lifestyle).  Would love to know if anyone owns these and what your kid(s) think of them.  I’m already planning to get them for Nia when she gets within the appropriate age range!

    I don’t own the wind up plane book yet, but I can get my hands on one for you :)
