I am finding it harder and harder to find appropriate magazines for DD these days.

Many of the magazines are either too young or too old.

The CBeebies and Princess type ones are too young. She liked the activiy books when younger but they are way too easy now.

Then the next stage up are too old, talking of boyfriends and "we love [insert ceeb name]" type.

There is one called Sparkle Wrld which is ok, but still verging on too young, and the activity pages in the middle again are far too easy to entertain her.

So, what do your girls like?

Dd is getting tnto the ones which I feel are a bit too old for her but ho hum!

She does like Sparkle and one called Girl Talk which seems to be lots of articles about Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus and some other "pop star" with a brown sever cut bob whose name escapes me, it might begin with L. Oh and lots of posters of Zac Efron.

Saw Girl Talk yetserday but it was inside a plastic bag, holding in the freebies, so couldn't have a look inside.

DD is really into HSM and Hannah Montana, so may be an option.

Lol, Dd loves Hairspray too so has decided she "hearts" Zac! Yuk!

I guess it's the best of a bad bunch. Whatever happened to Bunty?

Ooh, I think dd would love that one. Is that a bichon on the front cover????

She has a dog and a rabbit, I'll have to look out for that one.

Yes, Hairspray was enjoyed here too. Did your DD watch the Hairspray thing on Sky yesterday evening - a high school in UK being put through their paces to put on the Musical? It was first auditions last night. DD loved it.

DD not really into animals as such.

Drat, was it on last night, we missed it.

(Dh does a great impression of Edna, he knows the techniques used to get that sound!!!)and he doesn't need the padding!!!!!

Yes, think it is weekly. Was onyl first auditions so not started properly yet. Final auditions next week and where they chose who gets what part.

Is it a school with a good racial mix? It must be I guess as it would be SO un pc to "black up".

I love the song I know Where I've Been but could never sing it in public.

Yes, good mix socially and racially from what I could gather. It looked like inner city type school from what I could see.
