New: Go Jetters Magazine {Review}

Today is launch day for the new Go Jetters Magazine from Immediate Media. We were sent a pre-release of the magazine so that we could tell you about it, which you can find out more about in the video below… but for those who like the highlights, read on!

Go JettersGo Jetters is a magazine for children around 4 years old. If you haven’t seen the Cbeebies show, Go Jetters are aliens who visit different landmarks in different countries, learning about them as they go.

In the first issue the chosen landmark is The Eiffel Tower – on the first page you meet the Go Jetters – then a story where they set course for Paris with a few stops along the way (or not), like Niagara Falls and so on. There’s everything you expect from a children’s magazine: sticker pages, colouring, spot the difference, matching activities and more.Read more: New: Go Jetters Magazine {Review}

NEW! Andy’s Amazing Adventures Magazine Review

If your little one is a fan of Andy’s Wild Adventure on CBeebies, Immediate Media have a treat in store for them: The new Andy’s Amazing Adventures Magazine which launches today.

What they tell us about Andy’s Amazing Adventures Magazine:

Andy's Amazing AdventuresThis magazine is aimed at 3 – 6 year olds, and the magazine is based on the extremely popular CBeebies shows Andy’s Wild Adventures, Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures and the forthcoming Andy’s Prehistoric Adventures and will cover all of Andy’s adventures.

In each issue, Andy will be their trustworthy guide as they explore the world and even travel through time, meeting creatures, facing dangers and solving problems along the way. It is packed with puzzles, stickers, colouring, stories and comes with a great free gift with every issue.

The magazine is based on the 7 key areas of learning that support early years development so it’s full of fun things while also supporting the readers’ learning.

What did we think of Andy’s Amazing Adventures Magazine?

We’ve received the first edition in advance of today’s launch, and the first thing I noted about the contents were that they are spot on for their target. My 6 year old finds all the puzzles and activities easy, but not boring and my 3 year old finds them challenging enough to do together, so I think it’s perfectly targeted.Read more: NEW!

Christmas Gifts: 4+ Fantastic Magazines For Children

While children today have so many amazing things that we didn’t even dream possible when we were kids, there was one thing that we had that they don’t: mail. Or ‘snail mail’ as we know it today. While adulthood has dulled the joy of the postman’s ring a little, since most of what he brings me is bills, there’s still a momentary thrill of excitement when I see him (or her) walking up the path. What’s he bringing? Is it for me? Is that a parcel I see peeking out of his over the shoulder bag? So exciting. (Or maybe I should get out more?) But either way, this is a thrill our children don’t really know.

As a child and later as a teenager I had pen pals, and a subscription to a Tinkerbell, and a later a couple of teen magazines and the arrival of the postman was the most wonderful thing.
