I didn't realise I would be lured into the marketing ploy of magazines with my nearly two year old quite so soon in her life. I was only walking past the magazine section in the supermarket, and the cries of "Lola" in an excited voice made me turn to see what she had spotted. Sitting there was of course the Cbeebies weekly magazine with quite a large picture of Lola from Charlie and Lola on the front cover. The look of sheer excitement on my daughter's face made me melt and when I asked her if she would like the magazine, her shouts of yes and the big beam on her face sealed the deal. Yes I am a sucker, and yes I have been sucked into the marketing ... Read the complete review

My daughter is 2.5 and has been getting CBeebies weekly magazine on and off since she was about 18 months old. The primary reason for buying the magazine initially was to fill an hour or so on a wet afternoon with no friends to play with. The cost of the magazine means we don't get it every week - as this would really add up - but for a treat once in a while, maybe once a month or so, it is a nice surprise to let her have after nursery, or as a treat for being extra good etc. Heather's first thoughts on the magazine were pretty limited - I think the magazine is better aimed at 3 years plus. However, the free gift on the front has always gone down ... Read the complete review

I must confess to having very pre-conceived ideas about children's magazines. These ideas include them being expensive, rather scant in content and that children are lured by the free gifts which, will, undoubtedly be broken and thrown in the bin within minutes. CBeebies Weekly magazine hasn't really proven to be much different but it does have a few redeeming features. I still think that it needs to be looked at carefully each week to see whether the redeeming features are present though! The front cover of the magazine is always a busy affair which feels rather frantic and reminds me a lot of the kind of flitty conversations that one has with a ... Read the complete review

I was doing the weekly shop a couple of months back, with my two daughters, when all of a sudden my eldest shouted out 'cbeebies' i wondered what on earth she was on about, we had stopped and i was browsing the magazine section, she kept repeating the words and started crying, it then dawned on me that this was the start of the beloved 'magazine wanting', that my two little sisters did, brightly colored magazines, stacked one after another to attract little prying eyes, and then comes the sentence 'Can i have it please mum'. At first i refused, but then thought considering 'cbeebies's is her favorite channel and being so educational it won't harm. So i handed it to ... Read the complete review

Out of all the magazines available for the preschool age range I normally try to steer my boys towards the Cbeebies magazines as I find they tend to be the best option, especially the special themed editions but these normal 'weekly' ones are also pretty good. The content is all based on the shows from the very popular young children's channel 'Cbeebies' which is aimed at ages up to 6 or 7. I find the magazine is perfect for my 3 year old but I do think children upto 5 or 6 would definitely still be okay with it as it does have a lot of activities to complete. It is also good for younger children, as I used to get it for my eldest since he was under 2 years ... Read the complete review
