Moshi Monster Magazine
Advantages: Good for kids, moshi monster fans and has loads to do
Disadvantages: None that I can think of
Moshi Monsters is a craze that is sweeping most primary schools, sweeping so much that they have released their own magazine, Moshi Monsters Magazine. The fact that my sister is both obsessed with Moshi Monsters and reading has led to them being left in the car, so anytime I'm waiting in it I tend to always end up flicking through it absent mindedly.
I'd say the magazine is suitable for any Moshi fan and also for those aged 3 and up. It costs around £3 but has the option to be subscribed to, but it is definitely worth this as it encourages kids to read but also keeps them occupied for a while. It can be found in most newsagents and supermarkets to and is released monthly. I'd say it is fine for any age, as long as they have basic reading skills.
The magazine always comes with free gifts for kids, and they always are moshi monster related. Usually they are random codes for the game combined with some other little gifts, for example this month they had mouldable popping chocolate which was pretty decent! Granted half of it does end up in the tiny toys collection, however most of them my sister has played with for a while.
The magazine is basically a colour explosion as every page seems ridiculously bright and colourful, although this is a bonus in my opinion! It is designed very well for a magazine as there is not too much information on the page and is written in a way that will definitely appeal to kids. It also has a great amount of pictures, drawn with cute little details and exactly like the moshi monsters themselves on all the pages.
Throughout the magazine, there are loads of things to keep a moshi fan amused. Along with kids drawings and letters sent in, there is also loads of little games and quests for the kids to complete. These are challenging in my opinion and my mum is definitely glad about these being included as they keep my sister occupied for ages. They also test a wide variety of skills, whether it be answering questions from comprehension or general knowledge or testing their math skills through younger versions of sudoku or code cracking.
It's also good for the crafting side, as they often have instructions on how to build moshi related things such as cakes, little paper crafts or in the most recent issue, moshis out of mouldable chocolate. They are always really helpful and the instructions are designed in such a way, they don't require an adults help.
There are also things such as posters, which go up on my sisters wall pretty much every time she gets the magazine. They're always very cute and designed well. However, also included throughout is random comic panels which have cute little stories and are designed with great little details on all the moshlings.
Overall, this magazine is great for moshi fans however I also think other kids could enjoy it, as it is full of little puzzles to keep people occupied and cute comic panels. It is designed with kids in mind, and my sister can spend ages reading it, so it is definitely worth purchasing especially as it keeps kids occupied.
Summary: Good magazine for kids, especially Moshi fans
