What a terrible name for a kids magazine!

Tellingitlikeitisnt Tue 11-Feb-20 20:39:18

What a terrible name! That is not kid friendly and would completely put me off buying it for my children sorry

Shannith Tue 11-Feb-20 20:42:01

It's pretty brave. Signed up so I can see a copy.

Wow signed up as my son loves reading magazines and books he receives magazines as a treat so this would be a fantastic opportunity

CoffeeDeprivation Tue 11-Feb-20 23:01:19

Never heard of this! I would love to check it out. I have a 4yo and a 7yo who are obsessed with Mario/Sonic/Pokemon/Lego, so this seems to check many boxes!

SunshineOutdoors Tue 11-Feb-20 23:05:29

Enough with the crappy plastic free gifts! I know that’s what makes my dc want to buy them but they’re so bad for the environment and get ignored after a couple of days anyway. So I’ve stopped buying them. Sorry, rant over, as you were!

Sounds dreadful!

NeverTwerkNaked Wed 12-Feb-20 07:19:05

No more plastic gifts please!! The planet is slowly choking on plastic and our children the ones dealing with the mess.

PegLegAntoine Wed 12-Feb-20 07:45:37

I’ll give it a go because DS loves minecraft/sonic etc

But isn’t Fortnite rated 12? Why would they have stuff about it in a magazine for 7-12?

TheMemoryLingers Wed 12-Feb-20 08:41:03

A children's magazine called 'Toxic' confused.

lolly2010 Wed 12-Feb-20 10:26:25

signed up, this sounds like a great test

TheGirlFromStoryville Wed 12-Feb-20 11:14:58

Signed up 👍

mogloveseggs Wed 12-Feb-20 11:21:15

Signed up sounds fab!

ScarlettBlaize Wed 12-Feb-20 13:27:33

Nah. I have two kids in this age range.

There are so many brilliant publications out there for kids that don't rely on branded, screen-based, expensive toys/games for their content.

Why would I want to give them a magazine that (a) encourages them to spend more time staring at a screen and (b) encourages them to pester me to spend more money?

I can’t stand this magazine, full of plastic tat, not nearly as many activities as others, and it just feels like one long advert!

TerrifiedandWorried Wed 12-Feb-20 18:19:26

It's been going for nearly 20 years, ths name has always put me off.

Osquito Wed 12-Feb-20 18:27:25

I was kinda hoping this would turn out to be some sort of low-brow punk indie magazine for children... what a bizarre name for one of those brand-toy ones.

borntobequiet Wed 12-Feb-20 18:58:03

What a stupid name.

slipperywhensparticus Thu 13-Feb-20 10:43:40

Done but I never get picked I think they either dont like my disabled children or dont like my Spartacus name when I was chickenfuckingpox it was fine 🤔😂

MrsArchchancellorRidcully Thu 13-Feb-20 11:47:51

Signed up but yes I agree it's an awful name. Who thought that was a good idea?!
