My 4 year old daughter is a great fan of Toybox magazine.
The magazine is aimed at children aged between 3 and 5 years old and is very competatively priced at only £1.50 per issue, compared to other children's magazines which range from £2 upwards.
The magazine contains 32 pages and is issued every 4 weeks.
Toybox is a BBC magazine and is filled with all the popular characters from BBC children's programmes that your child will recognise and relate to, such as Tweenies, Bob the Builder, Teletubbies, etc. This is a great bonus as it grabs your childs attention right from the start
Toybox is described as a 'Teach me' magazine and is formulated to help 3-5 year olds progress through the Early Learning Goals for Reading, Writing and Numbers in preparation for Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum.
The magazine is full of simple educational puzzles and activities involving BBC characters, all designed to make learning fun. Activities include counting, word recognition and handwriting practice, mazes, and games. There are also stories involving BBC characters and things to make and colour in, to encourage a childs creativity.
At the bottom of each activity you will find a note explaining which skills the child will have practised and relating this to the National Curriculum. This is really useful for parents and reinforces the fact that learning can be fun.
There are also lots of competition giveaways and a free gift with every issue. The gifts we have received have ranged from paints, beach balls, children's gardening equipment to musical instruments.
My daughter is almost 5 years old and still gains an awful lot from this magazine. She really enjoys doing the activities such as handwriting and word recognition and gets a real thrill from seeing her favourite television characters in a magazine. I am certain that Toybox is helping her to gain confidence in her abilities and as she sees this as a fun magazine she is keen to spend time on these activities.
Overall, I find Toybox to be an excellent teaching magazine, which combines childrens favourite characters with good educational activities. The magazine is very good value for money, especially when you consider the free gift included with each issue. I would recommend this magazine to anyone wtih small children.
