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 well - even though it is generally made of plastic and doesn't last long. We have had crayon and colouring sets, stickers, plastic toy phones, hand puppets; plastic skittles etc - always something new to entertain little hands!

The activities inside the magazine are all based on the familiar and popular CBeebies programmes. They include colouring pages, areas to use stickers, basic and first counting and alphabet skills, learning to write and spell, dot to dot puzzles and simple mazes.

There is always a lovely bedtime story at the end, which is always a favourite in our house. As she has gotten older, Heather has really started to enjoy some of the simpler puzzles and loves the fact that she recognises all the characters.

Our verdict - probably aimed at pre-school children, but little ones will love seeing their favourite characters in print form. And the free gift will always be a big hit!

Summary: A nice treat once in a while, but not every week- unless you are loaded hehe
