I hadn’t heard of Story Box until I was contacted and asked if I would like to have a look at them to review, but I had heard of some of their characters like my little boys personal favourite ‘SamSam’ which we watch in french…
Story Box magazines are slightly more expensive than the usual magazine which you pick up in the supermarket for your children, but then they are a different format. Much better quality and much more like a story book. We all really really enjoyed these, there are no adverts and you can actually sit down and read them properly with the kids or they can flick through on their own. At the front of each magazine is a proper story, there is also a section about animals and some facts. Obviously, because they are magazines there is also an opportunity to do some games and colouring.
There are some really nice illustrations in these magazines and you get the impression that the content has actually been properly considered. You can buy age appropriate versions and get them on audio Cd’s or the iPad.
If you have been asked by the grandparents for a suitable Christmas present then a subscription to this fun, yet educational series might be just the answer for you, it is for us!
