The Fun To Learn standalone range is fun, bright and gender-neutral and aimed at preschool children. The content within each of the titles perfectly complements the charm, humour and character of the TV shows and extends the world of each character into entertaining and educational activities that delights both pre-schoolers and their grown-ups.
The content of the magazines is cleverly tied together with a popular pre-school theme and encompasses everything that pre-schoolers enjoy – story-telling, colouring, sticking, playing and making. The fun is further amplified by the covermount that encourages play-based learning.
Each magazine contains a workbook that is designed to encourage children’s abilities in seven areas of learning set out by the National Curriculum’s guidelines which reassures grown ups of the true value of the content. But with Peppa Pig, Paddington, Bing and Hey Duggee to add to the fun, children don’t even realise they are learning!

What our experts think
Fun to Learn standalone magazines offer lots of variety in their activities and stories, keeping children engaged while they complete learning games such as tracing, sticker scenes, dot to dot and mazes. Following steps in the activities helps children to develop their concentration while teaching them about counting, problem-solving and visual thinking.
The familiar characters of the accompanying toys spark their imagination and they enjoyed acting out different stories, which encourages creative storytelling and vocabulary.
While older children enjoyed completing the activities independently, younger ones needed lots of parent guidance – however this makes it a great bonding activity. The variety of activities included in the magazine also make it ideal for keeping little ones occupied on journeys or holidays.
