The bumper selection of covermounts includes an exclusive in-game code and Centum Books Call of The Alphas taster story book.
Many of the This is the Animal Jam licensees – Gemma, Winning Moves, Dreamtex and Jazwares – have provided competition prizes for the first issue.
“DCT Media has done an amazing job with This Is Animal Jam,” said Vickie O’Malley, MD of Rockpool Licensing. “We have been partners with Sweet magazine for the last couple of years and we are thrilled that readers have been asking for an AJ stand-alone read.
“DCT has put all of their experience and passion for Animal Jam into the project and they should be very proud of the result.”
“It has been a pleasure to work with WildWorks to create a magazine we can all be truly thrilled with,” adds Sian Dolan, editor of This Is Animal Jam and Sweet magazine.
“We wanted to come up with an engaging publication that ticked all the boxes for Animal Jam fans – packed with activities, exclusive tips, fascinating facts and so much more – and we think we have done just that.”
