I love getting magazines in the mail. Even though much of my reading is online I still like to have a physical magazine that I could relax with - which might also be why there are stacks of magazines lying around. I also love getting mail and my daughter has joined me in this excitement and she adores it when she gets a card from Grandma or a kids catalog, which I dub as her mail.
She is also going to be getting a lot more mail this holiday season since I decided to get her a subscription to Disney Junior, a magazine filled with stories and activities that are all geared towards learning, discovery and friendship. Throughout the 42-page magazine, kids will find Mickey, Minny, Goofy, Handy Manny and many other Disney pals where children can play games, solve puzzles, and learn all about how to help out and share. Designed for kids 3-5 years old, the magazine is characterized into various sections: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Little Einsteins, Special Agent Oso and Jungle Junction.
In our review copy "Fun for Every Season," I loved the collection of crafts like a Spring Spinner project where kids can make a pinwheel in four simple steps and the games like Frosty Friend where kids have to put a snowman in order. Other favorites in this issue include Tic-Tac-Toe with Micky and a fun story about the climate with the Little Einsteins. There was also a fun poster featuring Peter Pan that was a huge hit that my daughter adoringly posted on her wall.
Since my daughter can't read yet, we also worked on most of the activities, which I loved as a fun project where we could interact and learn. In addition to the interactive and fun games, the magazine's familiar characters keep my daughter engaged for several days where she now asks me when her mail is coming.
