Amazing Magazine Review and Giveaway

I was recently given the opportunity to review Amazing Magazinewhich is a fun and educational magazine for children aged 7+, which is also based on the primary school national curriculum, and covers  a variety of subjects including Maths, English, Science, History and much much more.

Amazing Magazinepromote this in a fun way by having a different topic each month such as zombies and aliens, so children will get a fun magazine reading something that is interesting to them, but learning at the same time. There is also a chance to do some cooking as you get a recipe in each edition which is also to do with that months theme.

I received 2 editions to review Ancient Romans and Human Body, the recipe in the Human Body is Bogie Bites, which I am sure any child would love to make and have even more fun eating them.

They have also recently taken on the ex Editor of Horrible Histories magazine and writers from Simpsons and Beano comics.

The magazine is a monthly 36 page publication, the quality is very good and I was very impressed with the quality of the paper.  An annual subscription costs £49 for 12 issues, or you can choose a digital subscription which is available on iTunes, GoolePlay and Kindle Store for £23.99.  Amazing Magazine are also offering my readers a 10% discount on their subscription, just enter WOW10 at the checkout to qualify.

In my opinion, this magazine is fun for children and with a different topic each month, they will have fun learning a variety of topics, which will in turn help them with their school work.

You can also watch my review on my YouTube Channel

I have also been given 10 copies to give away, so 10 of my lucky readers will win a copy each.

      I was very impressed with these, although my Daughter is older than Primary level, she has lost a lot of schooling this year so will be good for her to pick up and put down to keep her brain working a bit x

      It is great for kids, as it has everything they want, plus they don’t realise they are learning at the same time x

    This looks and sounds like a great magazine. A bit old for my son at the moment, but I do like buying the occasional magazine for new activities and things to learn. x

    • admin
      22nd March 2016 / 2:18 pm

      I think although it is aimed at 7+ years, it could appeal to younger children, as it is bright and colourful and you they can still learn through you.

      I remember Twinkle, if I am right, I had it from the first edition and you collect things to build a princess castle

  11. 22nd March 2016 / 4:52 pm

    That’s quite a good price for a monthly magazine like that. I remember getting ones when I was a kid for like 1.99 then it would go so expensive after the first few weeks x

    • admin
      22nd March 2016 / 7:05 pm

      They usually start of cheaper and then get expensive, my kids have all had the same experience x

  12. 22nd March 2016 / 5:39 pm

    I’d pay the full whack for the paper copy as opposed to digital. It looks more stimulating for the kids in paper form.

    • admin
      22nd March 2016 / 7:03 pm

      I agree, I would prefer paper copy x

    Not really a comic, but Jackie was the bees and eese for us young upstarts in the 60’s. I was 11 when I started to use my pocket money to buy it. Oh the Christmas Annuals was one of the best presents to open each year.
