DOT. is the new creative magazine for littles ones, aimed at girls and boys under the age of 5. It’s fun and creative, and if you have an eager to learn child, then this magazine is a nice alternative to an activity book.
The theme for the first issue is Shapes and covers a whole section aimed at learning about a variety of different shapes, giving information about the number of sides, examples of objects that are that shape and offering a space for children to practice drawing the shapes themselves.
The magazine also offers activity suggestions, little illustrated stories, jokes, recipes and much more. Illustrations are by Anorak’s chief designer Anna Dunn. I love her style and the colours used, it’s bright, bold and looks fun. There are other guest illustrators as well who have created little stories throughout the magazine.
Advertised as the Happy Mag for Creative Kids, it definitely is, and I know children will look forward to receiving this through the post, something to brighten any dull day. Issue 2 is due out in August so catch this issue whilst its still out or get a subscription from here.
