Immediate Media has just launched its BBC Go Jetters Magazine, based on the popular CBeebies show – to the obvious delight of at least one parent, who has posted this enthusiastic review over on YouTube, on SuperToysUniverse, and the Jones Family, who managed to keep the toys on the cover for their review here.
On sale now in all good newsagents, Immediate Media pitches BBC Go Jetters Magazine as a fun and educational delight bursting with activities and stories for little adventurers. Aimed at 3 to 6 year olds, the new title will transport little ones around the world as they follow the Go Jetters team globe-trotting adventures.
Little adventurers can join the Go Jetter Academy, learning about geography and famous landmarks as they travel the world under the watchful eye of Academy leader and mentor – the disco-dancing Ubercorn.
The magazine will maintain the funny, adventurous tone of the hit CBeebies programme while providing little explorers with exciting activities, games and sticker pages that all support the Early Years Curriculum.
Published monthly, each issue will include stickers and a great free gift to teach and inspire curious young minds; jam packed with informative and fun things to do with educational activities based on the geographical theme of the hit show.
As with all of Immediate Media’s pre-school titles, BBC Go Jetters Magazine is designed around six learning areas aimed at supporting children’s development.
“With Go Jetters Magazine readers can travel anywhere in the world and be part of the amazing Go Jetter Academy,” says Steph Cooper, Go Jetters Magazine’s Editor. “The exciting editorial encourages children to problem solve and to find out about famous landmarks all over the world. Go Jetters engages children’s imaginations so they can learn about geography in a way that is gripping and meaningful to them.
“The editorial sparks children’s curiosity and encourages them to ask questions and have conversations about places. It provides opportunities for them to discover more about where they live as well as places far away.”
