DC Super Friends Magazine *REVIEW*

We were recently lucky enough to receive a copy of a brand new magazine that is being released this month!! Its called DC super friends.
The magazine goes on sale today (19th September)
This is what Titan magazines had to say about their new magazine DC Super Friends ... "DC Super Friends offers exciting stories about the super friends Batman, Superman, The Flash and Green Lantern along with many others. Dc Super Friends is packed with lots of creative learning quizzes and activities, colouring games, cut out and keep, make and wear activities, character fact files, a fan mail section for all those lovely pictures we receive and brilliant prizes to be won through our competitions."
When we first received the magazine we thought the bright colours were really eye catching and would my James immediately wanted to look at it and didn't want to put it down. The toys also caught his eye and he was eager to get it out and have a play with it which is always a good sign! As I am sure with lots of kids the first thing they look at when picking a magazine is the toy lol!
 The magazine is aimed at preschool boys aged 2-5 and James is 4 so really aimed at his sort of age. Although I did think that 2 may be a little young for the magazine as it has paper pages which are easily torn and a lot of the activities were aimed at children a little older so I would say the magazine would suit ages more 3-6.
Dc Super friends contains lots of different activities which James enjoyed doing as they were quite short and they didn't require to much attention perfect for a child! Although he did find a few of the activities a little difficult and needed a bit of help from me and his dad.
However this didn't put him off, he especially loved the colouring in pages and the pages in which you could make items. Although the items that you could cut out and make did require extra items which luckily we had in but would be a little disappointing if we didn't have them to hand however most of the activities in the book just require pens/pencils.
Here are a few of the activities included in DC Super Friends..
Here are the toys that came with it, Each addition has a different toy and this first magazine included to plastic communicator toys with changeable pictures. James had great fun playing with these and it was great that it came with 2 so he could play with his friends with them.
The magazine is priced at £2.99 which I think is the going rate for magazines at the moment. Although this magazines does seem a little bit shorter (fewer pages) than some of the magazines priced at the same rate James still seemed to enjoy it. He did however miss the stickers that you sometimes find in the centre of magazines as this magazine does not have any stickers so maybe something that could be added in the future?

The next edition is out on 17th October and contains a free pull and go helicopter and lots more fun activities.
