Today sees the launch of a brand new CBeebies magazine – The Furchester Hotel magazine. The new magazine hits the shelves today and Tigger was lucky enough to have a copy sent through to take a sneak peek at and to share his thoughts.
The Furchester Hotel magazine
The Furchester Hotel magazine is full of fun and educational activities, each issue will come with lots of sticker activities plus a free Furchester gift. The magazine will be published every 4 weeks, priced at £2.75 and aimed at children aged 3-6 years.
Sticker activities – Similar to the popular CBeebies magazine The Furchester Hotel magazine comes with two sheets of stickers to be added throughout the magazine in a host of different activities. This aids with children’s hand/eye coordination, shape recognition and above all good stickering fun!
Guest book – Just like staying at The Furchester Hotel guests are asked to sign in by writing down their name and selecting things for their stay.
6-page Cookie Monster’s activity book – Filled with a range of activities from following trails, sticker fun, colouring and drawing
Writing – Elmo encourages your child to copy his name and then write their own, along with their age, their likes and then draw a self-portrait
Colouring – You can’t have a children’s magazine without a colouring page or two
Maths – Alongside some sticker fun your little one will be learning about different numbers, counting and adding all without realising
- Meet the Furchesters
- Toast with a smile
Alongside the stories there are little quizzes to see how well your little one was listening and paying attention to the details within the story.
Make your own portraits – A simple craft activity that comes with everything your child will need to make a range of monster portraits. They can choose to follow the guidance included within the magazine or let their creative juices flow.
Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…
With Tigger being a fan of The Furchester Hotel TV series he was delighted to see this new magazine waiting for him on the table. With a large number of the activities he was able to complete himself it was lovely to watch him sit and get lost in the magazine, only asking for help when it came to reading the stories and a little guidance on the make your own portraits activity. With Tigger starting school this September it will be lovely to see how he interacts differently with the magazine once he can read more of the instructions and the stories.
As a parent I’m always pleased to find a magazine that my child would happily select in store that contains a range of activities, stories as well as educating them without them realising.
The first issue of The Furchester Hotel magazine is on sale today, with the second issue hitting stores on the 26th August 2015 complete with a free holiday play set.
