Egmont Magazines new LEGO Explorer magazine launched

Egmont Magazines new LEGO Explorer magazine launches today (Wednesday 21st October 2020) – a monthly publication designed “to build curious minds” and inspire readers to design their own LEGO models and “unleash their creativity.”

LEGO Explorer Magazine Issue One

Focused on learning, discovery and creativity, LEGO Explorer has been developed by Egmont Publishing with the support of official LEGO designers. Its aim is to combine the creativity central to the LEGO brand with Egmont’s experience in magazine content.

Offering a STEAM focus, encouraging young readers to go on a journey through the worlds of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths, the title, which comes with an exclusive collectible LEGO toy, will also teach new LEGO skills, with inside info from LEGO designers themselves.

Issue One is dedicated to Marvellous Machines, exploring the world of robots and artificial intelligence.

“We’re sure that LEGO Explorer will be loved by both kids and parents,” commented Laura Adnitt, publishing director, “and the STEAM themes are sure to engage young readers in educational topics alongside their much-loved LEGO bricks.

“We’re delighted to be launching this magazine with a direct to consumer subscription offer. We know that young readers will love collecting all the themed issues, and will revel in building the exclusive LEGO covermounts every month.”

Subscriptions are available now, including a trial offer of the first three issues for just £5. Since just one issue costs £3.99 in the shops, that’s quite a “starter” offer!
