With my two children both being huge fans of the BBC Merlin series, when they spotted the new Merlin magazine on our latest food shop it was a 'We NEED this magazine!' chant from both until I gave in.
The boys love it, packed with inside info on the upcoming fourth series it is a must for all Merlin fans, young and old. The magazine has cast interviews, competitions, make and do pages, quizzes and much more and kept my 2 boys quiet all afternoon, with my little one still walking around clutching it wherever he goes.
As a parent I think this magazine has a good balance and I particularly enjoyed the comic strip and there is also little advertising which from a parents point of view is great because then I don't get a 'Mummy, I want that' every other page!
The magazine also comers with two quality gifts, a dragon glider and a crystal set which both my children enjoyed making, the crystal set is still expanding as I type!
Overall a great children's magazine which adults will also enjoy and a great accompaniment to the fourth coming series. I hope they amke another one!
