Review | Amazing! magazine

Amazing! magazine

Gemma, Jacob and Max all love magazines. They often choose one in the supermarket after we have been shopping, and spend a quiet afternoon reading and doing puzzles. I do find that some of the magazines they choose lack a bit of educational value, and I am not a massive fan of the cheap, plastic toys tacked on the front to sway their decision. So when we were offered the chance to review a new educational magazine, I was keen to find out more. 

Amazing! magazine was launched in 2014, with the sole aim to make learning fun for children. Aimed at children aged 6-11, each issue of Amazing! is focused around a fascinating theme, such as The Stone Age, Super Planets, Deadly Creatures and Victorian Britain. Inside, the magazine covers core Key Stage 1 & 2 curriculum subjects, including maths, English, history, geography and PSHE (personal, social and health education). With a bright, colourful and bold design, the pages are bursting with fantastic facts, cool puzzles, fun activities and super stories, which will keep your child entertained for hours. And the best thing is they’ll be learning lots of amazing information to help them with their schoolwork without even realising it.

We received the Awesome Oceans edition, which has been a massive hit – both Gemma and Jacob are really interested in the sea, ocean creatures and historical facts – one of their current favourite TV programmes is Horrible Histories. 

The magazine has a huge range of activities, from factual information pages and ocean themed maths puzzles to shark posters, stories, languages and coding. Something for every school aged child, and offering heaps of learning opportunities – without them even realising they are learning!

This is definitely a magazine I would consider subscribing to, whereas I wouldn’t have considered this with any of the magazines the children have had previously. They will be great to keep and look back on when they need help with themed homework, as well as just being lovely to look back on for fun. Priced at £4.99, Amazing! magazine is in line with other similar items available in the shops, and you can save money with a subscription for 12 months coming it at £49. Of course, the bonus of this is that it will be delivered to your door, so you don’t even have to brave the supermarket!

    This is a children’s magazine that I am not familiar with, when my own children were young and when I was working as a registered child minder I could have named all publications targeted towards children but sadly I am out of touch now it looks great though so may buy it for my granddaughters

    We had Amazing! Here for 12 months and the boys enjoyed it, though it didn’t keep their attention for very long. It was great to keep revisiting though and actually they can be kept and read again which I thought was a great feature #triedtested

    This sounds like fun! I can’t wait until my daughter is at an age where she can enjoy magazines.

    Like others, I’m not familiar with this magazine. Although it seems fun and interesting to try as my boys loved magazine too. I will have a look at this in the shop. #triedtested

    I think this would be really good for my son who is 6. They are actually doing about the oceans at school at the moment.

    Its funny how magazines seem to be more appealing to kids than books even when they contain the same subject matter. My kids used to love having a magazine as a treat and I’m sure this would have been their type of thing but they would be too old for it now. #triedtested

    Oh wow this magazine looks great! My son loves magazines and facts so this would be perfect. Might get him a wee subscription for his birthday or something as he’d get a lot out of this 🙂

    These actually look really good. I’ve given up buying kid’s magazine because my children like the idea of them, but don’t ever do any of the activities unless I make them. These look great and right up my son’s street. #TriedTested
