  • Animal Baby, The Big Backyard, Ranger Rick. My Son loves them. He saves them all on his bookshelf. You can go to the library to the childrens section & let your child pick a magazine that they really like then take out the mailing insert & send for it.

  • Check out the Ladybug family of magazines (I believe it is Carus Publishing.)
    Babybug is the monthly publication for the littlest ones. Many public libraries with children's rooms have a subscription; I think it's a high quality magazine. There's no advertising! They do include a post card mailer between the pages offering subscriptions but it pulls out.
    Babybug is engaging & hardy (the pages hold up, though historically they've been a bit tougher, it's still good-quality) and very child-friendly. The format is stable, with one story ("Kim & Carrots") featured in every issue (always a different adventure for preschooler Kim), and changing features that follow a predictable structure (rhymes & bounces, Mother Goose verses, finger play & tickle play for babies/parents) and generally reflect the seasons & sometimes holidays.
    It doesn't progress with age but the publisher has other mag. options for as they grow (Ladybug, Spider.)

  • DS (3 yrs) has a subscription to National Geographic Little Kids - it's super cute and smaller than a regular size magazine, so easy for him to look at.
