Storytime Magazine

girls reading storytime magazine
My kids are really into the idea of receiving their own subscriptions in the mail, whether it’s a packet of stickers from a sticker club or the comic book magazine that arrives for the boys every Friday, they literally run home from school eager to get their mail. The girls were feeling slightly left out, so we recently signed them up for a subscription to Storytime Magazine, and now they receive their own mail once a month.

Storytime is a monthly magazine for kids filled with beautifully illustrated stories, fairytales, folk tales, fables and funny poems (and no adverts whatsoever!). Each issue also includes story-inspired games, puzzles and activities which appeal to kids of different ages. (The activities are a bit too old for Marlow, but she still really enjoys the stories and loves that the magazines come in HER name!)

What I especially like about the magazine is the selection of different stories, some of them classics which I remember from my own childhood and others which are completely new to us, and they’re all written in a way that really appeals to kids (I was reading the girls some original fairytales by the Brothers Grimm recently, and the language was a bit too difficult for them to follow).

Storytime is now offering UK-based readers the chance to try out the magazine by calling up and ordering a magazine for free. All you have to do is call them on 0843 504 4183, mention you’re a Babyccino reader, and they’ll send you one issue for free (or the chance to get three issues for just £3!). So easy! And remember to put the subscription in your child’s name — so they get their own post in your letterbox!

Lovely idea, shame we are moving abroad soon otherwise would have signed up. Do you mind me asking where the girls names are from on their wall?

Hi Holly,
The boys really love the Phoenix Comics: https://www.thephoenixcomic.co.uk — they come weekly on a Friday and they look forward to receiving it all week. Each issue comes with a poster — you should see the walls of their bedroom!! (it’s not my idea of beautiful decor, but I’m trying to be okay about it). 🙂

Ooh I can’t wait to see more of Ivy and Marlow’s room! Will we be lucky and get to see a blogpost or instagram pic with this soon? Pretty please? 🙂

Isn’t an 0843 tel no a premium rate call, so the magazine isn’t really free, is it?

Hi Courtney! I am newer follower loving the babyccino blog. Just thought I’d share that my one year old gets “Baby Bug” magazine which is designed for children 6 months to age three. It is lovely and each month has wonderful little stories, engaging pictures, and just the right level for her age. A great option for your US readers (plus they have older magazines for older children!)
