First Friends, Fun To Learn Magazine

First Friends When I received this lovely toddler’s magazine from First Friends, I just had to share it with you as it is so lovely. I never remember anything like this being available for Sophia when she was Archie’s age. So this is really great.

The magazine itself is bright and colourful and includes a free gift, which is always great for little ones and so exciting. This one features a red tea set with the theme from The Hungry Caterpillar, it is definitely unisex and Archie loves playing picnics and cooking in his toy kitchen with his big sister.

The magazine features a range of popular children’s television characters. Which is lovely as Archie automatically recognised The Gruffalo, a story he knows very well. It is a 27 page workbook with FREE stickers to encourage and develop early learning skills with stories featuring popular characters.

The magazine in full of engaging activities for little ones, this magazine includes:

A lovely story with the popular character Elmer.
A story and sticker activity with Abney and Teal.
A colouring in activity of The Gruffalo
An activity to do with a grown up – Fruit Printing The Hungary Caterpillar. This looks fantastic and I will definitely be doing this with Sophia and Archie.
A colouring in activity with Spot the Dog. (Which includes a small A4 poster for your little one)
A matching-up activity
Spot the difference featuring Woollly from Woolly and Tig
A page about sending your post to First Friends with a chance to win a Paddington Bear wooden Domino’s set.
An activity featuring In the Night Garden
An activity maze
A story By Jez Alborough called IT’S THE BEAR
A singing activity
Some stickers
Part 1 of an Elmer height chart

The magazine is packed with many fun and challenging activities both my 18 month old son and 4 year old daughter have thoroughly enjoyed.

There are craft ideas to encourage fun at home with your little ones too. There are stories, which can be read at bedtime and lots of recognisable characters to talk about. There are so many activities inside the magazine to enhance and capture your little ones creativity and help to nurture learning and playing together.

I couldn’t recommend this magazine more.

Archie as well as Sophia absolutely loved going through it, taking turns to complete the activities, They especially loved the story by Jez Alborough and enjoyed playing with The Hungary Caterpillar tea set gifted with the magazine.
