DC Super Friends


This morning a package arrived for Nate, its the new DC Super Friends magazine which they sent for us to review.

DC Super Friends

A little bit of information regarding this new magazine is that it is aimed at the preschool market. (they state boys aged 2-5) Every issue will come with a free toy and this edition comes with two communicators with switching screens. The magazine goes on sale from tomorrow (19th September 2013) and details regarding the title can be found at Titan Magazines

Nate loves the free toys and the make a batmobile that appears inside. The story was enjoyable but  as comic fans we were expecting a comic strip and there is only one story in the magazine. Nate's excitement was dampened when he noticed there weren't any stickers, he loves his stickers and most magazines have stickers for his age group. 
I love the colouring in pages but think Nate would find most of the tasks quite hard so for him there isn't much for him to enjoy in the magazine but would think that 3-5 is probably a better estimate for the target ages.

We liked the magazine but can't see it being a regular purchase at the minute as Nate is far too young for most of the content. 

We were sent the magazine to review but all opinions are our own

    1. They do, we have a box of free toys. Nate's only allowed one at a time as they get lost or broken really easily.

  4. We tried this too, I do think 3-5 will get more out of it than age 2

    1. I think so too, Nate loves colouring and matching but the activities are beyond him. There is a big difference between 2 and 3 as well.

    1. I agree it is suitable for girls, as well. Nate loves the princesses so I see no reason for why a superhero magazine should only be for boys.
