I've had the pleasure of reading The Magic Kingdom #1 and now Issue #2 is just as enjoyable. These magazines are filled with colorful illustrations, 1-2 stories followed by several activities. This issue has a funny and enjoyable story "With the Power of Pike." As I was reading the story to my 6 y/o my 10 y/o runs over and starts laughing at the tale. The delightful story and detailed illustrations make it a really enjoyable story, apparently even for older children (and adults!) Both my children stuck around for the "Smart little tasks" consisting of comparisons to the story, mazes, identifying similar pictures , funny riddles, find the differences, and make up your own story with these pictures. The "Encyclopedia" section of the Tooth-fairy brought complete silence, because my children wanted to hear EVERY detail! Followed by how to make your own: gingerbread house, fun and easy felt projects and ending with our new favorite "Playdough Country" fun play doh ideas. This magazine is quickly becoming our new favorite read. I can't say enough about the fun content and extraordinary illustrations. I'd highly recommend to others young and old.
Issue 2 of this delightful Russian children's magazine is even better than the first one! The story of the Power of the Pike, had me thoroughly engrossed in what would happen next. There really isn't anything scary about these stories and they make a great bedtime or pre nap story.
The pictures are still beautiful and very colorful. Who wouldn't fall in love with the Princess?
The English translation is well done and I wouldn't have known if it wasn't told to me previously.
There are more puzzles and a definition of the tooth fairy. This will entertain children for a long time.
Again, I highly recommend these magazines.
Interesting for a "kids" magazine, stories with content, lavish illustrations, and puzzle games. Everything you need to get them to set still for a few minutes.
This episode along with issue 1, was sufficient to keep the youngsters occupied long enough to meet n greet, then set up the picnic table with carry out ribs. The usual chaotic preparations were dulled to a moment of efficiency with the help of the Magic Kingdom magazine. Even their youngest was excited with the activities pages regarding gingerbread house construction. None had experienced a real Gingerbread house before.
This Magic Kingdom Issue #2 if full of fun and Excitement. My child loves the characters and the stories.These tales are very memorable and educational which was a big deal to me as a mom. I love the bright colors and the characters personalities.Very well written and super creative art.Lots and lots of details to keep a young mind interested for hours.I recommend these for those keeps who have an issue sitting still.My kids love this!
A beautifully illustrated magazine geared towards children, I would guess between the ages of 3 and 9 years old. As soon as I saw the illustrations, I knew this was Slavic culture. Emelya catches a magic pike, who asks to be released. After that, he has some funny adventures, when all his wishes come true, once he says, "by the power of Pike". (The fable is probably related to the Fisherman's Wife.) The illustrations remind me of old fashioned fairy tale illustrations, brightened up for the digital world. Included in the magazine, are your typical kid activity games. Help Emelya go thru a maze, with his magic Pike in his hands. Which piece of cake has a twin on the page. Funny riddles. What's different between these two pictures? Make up a snowman story. The history of the tooth fairy. How to make a gingerbread house. Sewing activities. Things like that.
I would especially recommend this children's magazine, to children with grandparents or great grandparents who come from Russia, the Ukraine, Belarus, or even Poland or Finland. Kids like to feel connected to their ethnic heritage, and here's a fun way to introduce some culture, from when Babushka was a little girl.
