I think DS wpiof like a magazine subscription but not sure quite what. What magazines do similar ages boys enjoy please?

National geographic or Xbox live? My ds is just turned 12 and got both last year for Xmas - hard to say which he loved more tbh grin

My 11 year old twin boys have The Phoenix,First News and The Beano.

110% Gaming. It's a new magazine for 8-12 year old gamers.

My son gets anorak and aquila, and loved a 6 week trial of the phoenix.

Thank you smile Didn't realise there was an Xbox live magazine and hadn't heard of the 110% gaming magazine either. He has read issues of Phoenix and wasn't that interested in it. Might like the beano I think. How earnest is Aquila?
Anorak looks interesting too and he might well enjoy National Geographic smile

ds1 (12) has How It Works which he seems to quite enjoys, think he has had it for about a year.

Flipside looks good - but your link says it closed in July!

Just had a look at Flipside but it says it's been discontinued sad

There is a website/app thingy called Readly where you pay monthly and can read any of the magazines/comics on it. I read about it on hear and love it . If he has a phone/tablet etc he can read on it, it has xbox, gaming , Nat Geo Kids etc. Or you can get the free trail and check out the magazines if you still wanted to get a subscription.

That does sound good although tbh I'd quite like to disconnect him from his tablet a bit grin

Sorry didnt realise. Its a shame because it was very good.

How it works.
They also publish a history one.

Another vote for How it Works

My parents bought my 10 year old a subscription to Aquila ..and tbh it's rather dull. The whole issue is themed around a topic each time but it's never really caught his imagination,even though he really likes reading fact books.

Think an 11 year old might find it a bit young too, especially if he's at secondary school.
