Like most toddlers and preschoolers Jack loves CBeebies. One of his favourite shows, that he has watched every episode of countless times, is Hey Duggee! and much to his delight there is now an official Hey Duggee! magazine.
Priced at £2.75 and featuring plenty of activities and over 35 stickers I think it is excellent value. We already buy the Cbeebies magazine featuring lots of characters and shows but Jack tends to skip pages in search of Hey Duggee!, Clangers or Twirlywoo’s.
As with all Cbeebies publications, the Hey Duggee! magazine supports early years curriculum and is based on seven areas of learning, feeling good (self confidence in their own ability), expressive arts and design, maths, literacy, communication and language, finding out and lets move (keeping active). As well as supporting learning it also features funny stories, quizzes, recipes and even a pull out work book, a big plus for me.
In the Hey Duggee! show the squirrels earn club badges and with a pull out badge poster and a badge with each issue little ones can too. To earn the badge little ones have to complete certain activities listed in the magazine and then stick them in the squirrel club book.
This weeks issue includes a cake badge and Hey Duggee! cookie cutter as well as a recipe and ideas to decorate the cookies with, after which your little one will have earn’t their cake badge.
There was even a chefs hat included in the free gift which Jack was very happy about
The next issue is out the 18th November and includes a free Christmas tree kit and festive activities, Jacks already looking forward to it.
