LEGO Friends magazine is a new monthly title that hit the shops last week aimed for girls around the 7-11 age range. Each magazine features a free LEGO gift, the first one being Charlie the puppy dog set.
The first issue has introductions to some of the LEGO Friends girls such as Olivia, Emma and Mia, giving you little bios about each of them. There are also several comic strip stories, posters, quizs, puzzles and some fabulous LEGO sets to be won in competitions. There is a also a nice craft activity included to make tissue flowers.
My daughter Miss M is 6 and became a fan of LEGO friends at Christmas when she received a few sets and then some more on her birthday. I’d say this is the perfect magazine for her, lots of fun things to do and is totally aimed for someone of her age.
She is a competent reader for her age and happily sat reading through the comic strip stories. She couldn’t wait to get the LEGO pieces off of the front and put them to together, which she did completely unaided. These are cute pieces that easily go alongside any other LEGO that you have. In fact she is incredibly excited about the free gift on the next issue, a cute beach set with a LEGO bucket and flippers for the LEGO friends to wear on their feet!
For me, this is the perfect magazine for my daughter, the content is just right for her and I don’t have to worry about what she might be reading. She’s enjoys sitting reading it in bed before sleeping, played with the LEGO during the day and doing the puzzles during the day.
When I asked what she thought about the magazine, her reply was “I love it!”, and I have to agree, this is just the sort of magazine I’d buy for her with a lovely quality toy attached.
The first issue is in the shops now, so why not grab a copy?
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and the magazine was sent to us in order to write the review.
