My two were pleased when a playmobil magazine arrived in the post, I must admit I only treat them to the occasional magazine, they can get a little expensive otherwise. But then again I do feel that the playmobil magazine is added value, the exclusive collectible figure making it a lovely purchase even at £3.99. There was plenty to do inside to keep my boys occupied too, so I will be hunting for the next issue when we head to the newsagent or supermarket.
I have seen some magazines that tempt my boys to work on me to buy them with sugary sweets stuck on the front cover so I would definitely prefer to see them heading for playmobil instead. I know the figurine will be a quality item that will last and the content of the magazine will be age appropriate and educational.
The first issue was pirate themed so you had activities inside like instructions on making a pirate costume, puzzles, cartoon sketches and a poster. But other issues will involve other popular Playmobil playsets with just as much fun thrown in. I love the magazine as its another way to encourage eldest with his reading, lately he makes more of a fuss unless he is picking the reading material and cartoon sketches seem to be going down well.
