The Clangers Magazine - ReviewBud and LM love magazines and one of their favourite treats is to choose one featuring their favourite characters, and those from the cBeebies stable are especially popular with LM. The Clangers have returned to our television screens on cBeebies over the past year or so. I remember the original version from my childhood and I loved their adventures so it's been great to share the revamped show with our big two.
New this week from Immediate Media is a monthly pre-school magazine featuring The Clangers. As with all their magazines, the content is themed around the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework which means that children can enjoy their magazine and learn while they do so. With a wide range of different activities - from making your own boat to to puzzles, colouring and writing activities - the magazine is packed with fun and entertainment for your child.
LM always loves stickers and the central pages have a double page of stickers for children to use on some of the pages in the magazine. I loved the alphabet poster in the centre of the magazine and this was a perfect activity for LM as she's just starting to get to grips with the idea of letters. This is a bright and colourful page which would make a lovely decoration for a playroom or bedroom.
As always the magazine arrives with a fab free gift - a Clangers slide whistle which makes the same noise as The Clangers when played, and a lovely Tiny Clanger to play with, LM loves musical instruments of all forms so the whistle was a huge hit here.
We really liked The Clangers magazine and the little characters really lent themselves well to a bright and fun magazine for the 3-6 age group. The activities in the magazine kept LM well entertained and the toys were very popular too. We'd definitely recommend it.
The Clangers magazine will be available monthly from today, Wednesdsay 27th April 2016, the launch issue is £2:99 with future issues being priced at £2:85.
