We were invited to review “The Clangers” magazine, (for those who don’t know, “The Clangers” is a children’s TV programme which runs on the BBC) and given the success of the programme, they have launched a spin-off magazine, aimed at 3-6 year olds.
As a bit of a change, the review is in a Question and Answer format:
Did your child enjoy the new Clangers magazine?
Yes, seeing the smile on her face when she opened the parcel and started reading it. You can’t fake that kind of reaction!
Which part did they enjoy the most?
Definitely the stickers! I think that every child likes stickers, although Heidi particularly wanted to wear the stickers for some reason!
Would you buy it again?
Did you find it educational?
I particularly liked the alphabet pull out (we had been searching for one all weekend. Also, the page about the moon was very good, particularly as we are getting into planets/space etc
The font type particularly for the Singing Asteroid was nice and clear and large and while it sounds like a simple thing, it makes it easier to teach letters
What did they think of their free gift?
(The Clangers Whistle) The whistle didn’t have a blowhole in (presumably a manufacturing fault) and it took me a while to work it out – in fact, that should have been the most educational part…for me!
Once we did a bit of DIY we managed to get a decent sound out of it and played with it for almost as long as the magazine
Which Clanger do you love the most?
For the purposes of the review, we received a copy of the magazine for free.
