For this year’s UKMUMS.TV Baby & Pre-School Awards, our testers have been putting some of the best early years children’s magazines through their paces.

Children love to read magazines, and can while away a good few hours with their favourite character lead purchase. So, for the UKMUMS.TV Baby & Pre-School Awards, we searched high and low for the very best children’s magazines on the market. Then we recruited an army of mums, dads, carers, teachers and their children/pupils and we asked them to help us put these magazines to the test. They have now given their verdict, and we can now announce the winners in this category as:



About the product: “Fun To Learn Bing magazine is a bright, fun and engaging gender-neutral magazine for 3-5 year olds. Each issue contains a stimulating mix of stickers, stories, crafts, recipes, workbook and games. All of which are specifically aimed at nurturing key learning skills. The FTL brand is trusted and has a reputation for the highest quality educational content. Grown-ups are also encouraged to take time to journey through the activities together with young children to help them grow, learn and develop.”

What our tester said: “A colourful magazine with fun and engaging activities. My children enjoyed the stickers. My daughter completed many of the activities with some adult support. Stories and texts would need to be read to the child by an adult.”



About the product: “Fun To Learn Peppa Pig magazine encompasses everything pre-schoolers enjoy; story-telling, colouring, sticking, playing and making, a pleasure further amplified by the covermount that encourages play-based learning. Success is testament to phenomenal editorial expertise, innovation and creativity that is evident in every issue and grown-ups are reassured by the esteemed Fun To Learn ethos where content is based on the National Curriculum. Currently ranks 2nd in the pre-school and 5th in the all-children’s magazine category with average circulation of 53,417 per issue.”

What our tester said: “A great selection of the different Cbeebies characters. Fun activities for a range of abilities. Most children of this age would need support accessing the material.”
