This Is Little Baby Bum - Songs and Stories Magazine | Review


Every time I pop into the local shop or any supermarket Parker runs straight to the magazine aisle. He loves looking through them, pointing out the characters and seeing what special free gifts are on offer. So when I was asked if I wanted to review the new Songs and Stories magazine from Little Baby Bum, of course I said yes!

If you're wondering why the Little Baby Bum name sounds familiar, you probably know them best as the world's largest education Youtube channel - home to animated videos of both traditional nursery rhymes, and their own original children's songs. And they have now brought their well known characters and fun to their very own magazine!

The magazine is packed full of fun and engaging activities, such as colouring and counting, stories, puzzles and even delicious snack recipes. Of course there are also a number of nursery rhymes for you and your little one to sing and dance along too. Plus there are scannable QR codes on nearly every page, which take you directly to the corresponding Little Baby Bum Youtube video. How cool is that? Parker was especially thrilled to find that the issue we received even had a whole page dedicated to Baby Shark - a winner for any child I think!

Every page is bright and colourful, which I think is essential with a magazine aimed at young children. Plus, despite being the Little Baby Bum brand, I don't think your little ones need to know who they are to enjoy what's inside - they can learn along the way, with the help of the pull-out chapter poster too! 

This issue of Little Baby Bum Songs and Stories included a lovely free bath book as a special gift. Lilah (13 months) took an instant shining to it, although I think all three will enjoy reading it in the bath too. Some free items with magazines can be cheap and easily break, so I was really pleased with to see the bath book!

Overall we were really pleased with the Songs and Stories magazine. The pages are packed with lots of things to read and do, and I love the added detail of the QR codes. I do think the magazine is quite pricey though (and therefore not something we could buy on a regular basis). But as an occasional special treat, I think it is fab for little ones!
