  • Too general. Every person has different interests.

    Some will say "Oh its boy, so..Sports Illustrated or Car and Driver, of course." But not all boys like those things. Really depends on the boys and what their interests are. Mine would be happy with comic books and Video Gamer magazines. He's not into cars and sports at all. Find out what they like.

  • Mine are 12 and 10. It depends on their interests, but they really like National Geographic Kids. (They fight over who gets to read it first when it arrives.)

  • My boys like gaming magazines (we get one for Xbox and it doesn't have articles in it). We also use to get Sports Illustrated for Kids and Nickelodeon.
