Anorak magazine is a fantastic illustrated magazine for kids (ahem, and adults), it's been a big hit here in Sell Towers. Not only does it look great with top notch illustrations from cover to cover but it's put together brilliantly and is a real page turner for the little ones. Not an easy job.
It's not that widely available (yet) and is published quarterly but you can subscribe online so never miss an issue. At £3.50 a pop it's a bargain and don't let not having kids stop you. We put it down as research.
