Review: Bing magazine

Bing magazine

Max absolutely loves a comic. There are always so many to choose from for his age group, and they usually have heaps of games, activities and stories inside, as well as often coming with a treat or a toy on the front.

The new Bing magazine was a hit as soon as he saw it. He loves to watch Bing on CBeebies, so to see it in magazine form was great for him – it’s something he recognises, and a character he can relate to.

The magazine is absolutely full of stuff to do. There are stories, colouring pages, stickers and activities such as mazes and counting games that are ideal for the pre-school age group. There is also an alphabet poster and an 8 page activity book which you can pull out from the centre of the main magazine. This is ideal for travelling as it is smaller, and will easily fit in a toddler rucksack or car pocket. 

The added extra on this episode of Bing magazine was a 5 piece gardening set – perfect for the summer and for encouraging children to get outside in the garden. It’s not the sturdiest of sets, but you don’t really expect it to be when it comes from the front of a kids magazine. Having said that, Max has been playing outside with it for several days now and everything is still in one piece and in good condition, so it is definitely suitable for purpose. Max loves being able to ‘help’ with watering the flowers and ‘snipping’ the grass.

It’s definitely a magazine I would consider buying again. Max loves Bing, and I think having a comic with a favourite character in encourages little ones to play and learn. Because it is based on the Early Years Curriculum, I know Max is learning vital skills as he enjoys the comic, and for that reason alone I think it is worth the £3.99 price tag.

    We love Bing, too, so I can see my son enjoying this one, too. Sounds like it’s full of activities to try, no doubt we’ll be buying one as soon as he spots one on the shelves!

    My girls are older now so I am out of the loop with this kind of thing, however I do have a 4 yr old niece who would adore this! Thanks for the review and making me seem a bit cooler with the kids 😉 #triedtested

    My girls both love Bing and would love this. I like the activity sheets in the middle that could fit inside a toddler rucksack – what a good idea and glad to hear that the gardening set is surviving well. #triedtested

    looks like a fun little magazine – great that the free gift is not the usual small tat that will get lost! #Triedtested

    My 4 year old loves the idea of a magazine but once he’s pulled the free gifts off the front he quickly loses interest. He’d love the gardening set from the Bing magazine! x

    We love Bing in our house and I have a soft spot for flop! What a great magazine and the gardening set is perfect for this time of year. My girls love flicking through a magazine pretending to be like mummy x

    My boys LOVE magazine, I am always wary though as they seem so full of adverts. This one looks like it has lots to do though x

    I think we have had a Bing magazine before, we don’t normally buy them as they are just so expensive but I remember thinking it was worth the money as Mia seemed to get a lot out of it compared to other magazines. I think as long as theres a bit of everything in them, they aren’t too bad!
    Lovely photos, it looks like Max really enjoyed his magazine! 🙂

    My son used to love this sort of comic too! They are great for boys especially to entice them into reading. Tor x #triedtested
