Having a child who loves stickers, enjoys drawing, always asks to read stories and gets excited about puzzles, BUT loses interest pretty quickly, I’m reluctant to spend a lot of money on these areas of activities.
My solution? Children’s magazines.
Lamb has loved buying magazines for a while now and has finally got to the age where he actually sits down and looks through the whole thing from start to finish.
Since the Teletubbies made their comeback he’s become quite a fan. In fact, I caught him and daddy dancing away to the Teletubbies theme song the other day. I remember the year it was released (my last year of primary school) making it 20 years old!
The teletubbies magazine offers so much for his 3 year old mind to soak up.
Whether he’s listening to one of us read him a short story, spotting differences, learning to write or carefully placing stickers (which he’s incredibly good at), each page captures his attention.
There’s a great mix of pages which he can engage with and as well as a short story. Not only that, it can’t with a little sleeping Lala toy for him to play with.
With a price tag of £2.99 (which I think is very reasonable) the Teletubbies magazine is one of the cheaper children’s magazines on the shelves. For the amount of content you get, I’d definitely recommend it to others.
Here’s a little video of Lamb enjoying his mew magazine.
