The November issue has a free gift of 2 toy unicorns with 3 pots of paint and a pot of sparkly stars, aswell as 30 brightly coloured stickers. The unicorns are unpainted allowing readers to create their own designs and possibly give the spare unicorn to a best friend as a gift.
What I like about this magazine is that every page has a really fun activity to complete and the age range of the readers has been taken into account so none of the activities should prove too challenging for the younger ones.
The activities are pretty cool too – one page shows inside a cosy treehouse with a roaring fire and a winding staircase leading up to a cute bedroom to colour in. The opposite page features the woodland creatures that live in the treehouse. They are ready to be coloured in, cut out, and then be placed in the different rooms in the treehouse.
Many activities are intended to allow the readers imagination to run wild. The ‘Button Flamingo’ is a fun activity where the template of a flamingo is provided. The flamingo can be filled with any shape, or colour of button. Readers could choose to keep the flamingo near to its original colours, or experiment and create something completely different.
I would have loved this magazine to have been available when I was younger as the content is so diverse. The end results of the projects are impressive, yet the lists of “need to buy” and instructions on how to make the projects are consise and to the point which is always a benefit. Subscribe to the next issue so you don’t miss out on the fun.
