Cowart's Common Room
Kids magazines

Due to her divorce my eldest daughter has moved further away from me so I don't see the kids as often as I did (though they are staying with me now).

I write to them and send them things through the post - and I wanted to set up magazine subscriptions for them (boy 8, 9 at Christmas - girl nearly 7). I thought of National Geographic Kids - has anyone any experience of this? Any other ideas? I can't find anything I think our little girl would like.

Thanks for your help,

Faith x

Fairy Nuff's Avatar The only magazine subs I've ever had are the Artist and Illustrator and I used to get the Hugglets magazine - not a clue otherwise so I'm not much help either. Rolling EyesVery Happy
Nice idea though.

Fennie's Avatar I suppose it depends on what the children's interests are. Theo would love a Minecraft magazine or one on parrots. Beanie would like one that gave her tips on how to annoy her brother (not though that she needs any)!

Fairy Nuff's Avatar Good grief! I've just had a trawl through whats on offer for 7 year old girls and my goodness what a lot of troc! Blink
I wouldn't have thanked you for any of them at 7 years old - I would however have loved any of the sewing or arty & crafty magazines meant for adults so perhaps that's the way to go.
Have a think about her interests and don't tie yourself to magazines aimed just at children, she's likely to enjoy an adults one just as much if it's a favourite hobby.

Faith's Avatar I used to get the Hugglets one too FN - we used to love the Hugglets BearFest at Kensington.

I am really stuck - even adults ones are not suitable FN though she loves cats, maybe a cat one?

Faith, I have seen this educational magazine advertised and wondered about getting it for my grandchildren.
Take a look at Aquila
