'Love From Lalaloopsy' Children's Magazine Review

We had a special delivery this week - the 'Love From Lalaloopsy' edition of the new magazine series 'Love From...'.

Each month features a different character with this month being the lovely Lalaloopsy! Within this pack, we received the standard magazine, an extra craft magazine, stickers, a door hanger craft set and a free gift of a cute little bag, pencil & jewellery set.

There are plenty of activities to complete with your child within the magazine; my daughter especially liked the 'Cookie Mix' gift idea, the 'Letter Game' and the 'Spots and Stripes' activity page.

This is definitely a magazine worth buying; with the dismal weather we are having at the moment, this is great as there are lots of indoor things to do and ideas for things to make. And to make sure there's a bit of educational material in there(!), there's little quotes within the magazine with facts to help your child to learn along with puzzles, quizzes and stories.
There's often been the time when I've let my children choose a magazine after a shopping trip, only for it to be brought home, flicked through and then found lurking in the toy box or under the bed weeks later! But this one has been read and loved over the weekend, with still plenty to do from it over the next couple of weeks.
The next month's edition will be on sale on 5th March and will feature the fairies from 'Rainbow Magic'. Look out for it in major retailers including Co-Op, Asda and Sainsbury.
The 'Love From...' series will also build great communication with parents by using the three main social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest) to enable parents to share in their child's experience and find inspiration for further creative and educational projects to complete together. Keep an eye on their social media channels for lots of great ideas!
Overall, this looks to be a great series of magazines with plenty to keep your children busy!
