Children’s magazines are an affordable ‘treat with benefits’. The unique package of print activities, stories and play have a valuable role in improving literacy, reading for pleasure and child development.We are proud of our broad magazine portfolio, which makes reading accessible for all ages, stages and preferences. Free choice increases a child’s motivation to read and our wide range of titles offers magazines to entertain every child.
We encourage ‘reading through stealth’ and understand that all reading is good reading. Magazines about contemporary culture and brands promote reading through play and turn even the most reluctant readers into passionate ones.
Egmont produce the official magazines for best-loved characters and brands like Thomas & Friends, Lego Star Wars, Minecraft, Disney Princesses, and Paw Patrol.
Our story and image-led magazines present an entry point into reading for pleasure in an engaging and interactive format. Our products offer an exciting mix of stories, puzzles, games and free gifts which facilitate the proven power of learning through play in both our licensed titles and own-brand pre-teen magazines, Toxic and Go Girl.
Our quick response to trends and constant research with focus groups, schools and families means we are always making use of the latest brands, movies, music and games to attract and engage even the most reluctant of readers. As our research shows that 57% of children who say they ‘don’t enjoy reading books’ prefer magazines, we understand the unique potential that magazines have to engage children in reading for pleasure.
Our commitment to research means we recognise that some children not only prefer magazines to books, but also that many parents want to encourage less screen time, making the value of children’s magazines and the gateway they offer to reading more important than ever.
