When my daughter was right around one years old, she LOVED getting the mail with mommy. In fact, “mail!” (exclamation point inserted purposefully because she would say it so enthusiastically) was among her first words. She loved to move the red flag up and down, to open the box, and to see the letters inside.
Since little ones love surprises and opening special packages, it’s no surprise that someone decided to create a magazine specifically for the 0-2 set. What fun to be able to look forward to a new square-shaped, thick-paged zine each month!
Babybug Magazine is “for babies who love to be read to and for adults who love to read to them.” Filled with colorful illustrations (that are multi-culturally sensitive, I might add), rhyming text, and simple stories, the magazine is meant to be shared between parent and child.
The Parent Bloggers Network asked me if I would review Babybug a few months ago and I obliged. Strangely, although my daughter loves to read books, she isn’t interested in Babybug. I’m not sure if it’s her age or her stage, but I’ve tried to pull them out on several occasions and she always pushes them away and opts for another book. Perhaps she’ll like them more in the future…for now, she just likes pulling them out of the mailbox.
Want to try Babybug for yourself? A 1-year subscription costs $33.95.
