Obviously all kids are different, but my daughter (same age group) really likes when people bring her miniature things – she’s been given things like a mini Eiffel tower, etc. I tend to bring her bigger things when I travel to interesting places (dolls, clothing) but friends of mine have brought her things like small stuffed animals, little change purses that are made locally or have some kind of landmark on them, small jewellery. She always loves postcards. Incidently, she does like keyrings, but she has no use for them – they sit on a shelf.

When I went to London I brought back books for kids of that age group. One store I went into had these Horrible History books and there are tons of different ones on London. They were a big hit with both the boys and girls 🙂 I don’t know if you have any kind of language barrier though since you’re teaching in Mexico. 

Here are some but they have tons of other ones:

ETA: If they’re too expensive you could always get a few to add to your class library. We also brought back tons of chocolate (allergy concerns) and lots of little touristy souvenir things from the different places we visited.
