Okido (published quarterly) Ladybug and Click are published in the US by the cricket group but they will post to the UK. Publisher's age guide for all the above is 3+. No plastic tat so far, and DS seemed to like them.
I'm looking for a gift subscription for DS2, age 2.5. DS1 used to have Cbeebies magazine but it seems to be even more expensive (£3 a week!) and I hate all the plastic tat. He now at 6 has NG kids which is monthly. I'm looking for a monthly or fortnightly magazine aimed at 2-4yr olds, preferably with stickers but without endlessly repeated plastic rubbish on the front. Any ideas?
