by Eco Kids Planet February 29, 2020

A series of colourful and informative kids nature magazines, Eco Kids Planet aims to introduce children to the wonders of nature and encourage them to protect their planet. Our list reveals exactly why Eco Kids Planet really is the BEST magazine in the world for children aged 7 to 11.

1. We Help You Raise Wildlife Ambassadors

You’re passionate about wildlife and want to protect it. We help you raise a child who loves and protects our planet, too. Each issue, we highlight environmental issues from different regions around the world and talk about the plight of individual species. Children learn about millions of extraordinary creatures from across the globe. Sharing success stories and solutions, we inspire our readers to help us achieve a green future, where our oceans, land and wildlife are healthy and thriving. Children become more thoughtful and considerate, because the more they know, the more they appreciate, and the more they care.

2. We're Helping Children Excel at School

When we plan the content for each issue, we ensure that it supports and extends the national curriculum. This means that your children can learn and advance their knowledge on key topics, without feeling as though it’s homework! Before long, they’ll proudly tell you how they impressed their teacher and classmates with their new knowledge. The magazines will quickly become their go-to resource for school projects and homework.

Young readers encounter new scientific, nature-based and geographical words, which are carefully chosen and explained in the glossary sections. Our FREE online resource pack (available with each issue) includes literacy quizzes to help children practise new vocabulary.

“Dear Eco-kids planet. I have just worked through my first issue of this magazine. I think it is great and have hardly put it down. My teacher was impressed with how much I was able to tell her about the islands, I thought it was all very interesting and I can't wait for the next issue." Cammi, age 8.

3. Crafts in Each Issue

A 3D basking shark, a flying raptor, an African tribal mask – these are just a few examples of the crafts we’ve included inside our magazines. Enjoy a cup of tea as your child embarks on the latest creative activity. With step-by-step instructions, children can recycle and transform part of their magazines into a dancing Japanese crane, a vampire bat finger puppet, and lots of other exciting ideas we have up our sleeves. So, don’t be surprised when a cute paper macaw starts joining your family for dinner.

"The blue throated macaw has joined us for every meal since we made him on Sunday... apparently he likes hazelnuts (or that might be my 5 yr old).” 

4. We're Always Ads Free

Did you know that companies spend approximately $17 billion annually marketing to children? And with the rise in ‘screen-time’, children are exposed to adverts on a daily basis. Our magazines are ad-free because a learning journey should never be interrupted. Listen to your child sharing fascinating facts instead of begging for a toy they saw in an advert.

5. We Capture Children's Imaginations

On each page, a pair of wild eyes stare back at you, a giant crab leaps off the page, or a mighty volcano explodes. Adventuring around the world, we showcase amazing wildlife and habitats, unique cultures and traditions, local people and inspiring projects. Each issue also comes with beautiful posters, which your child can display on a wall and admire.

“Ayan was inspired by the Caribbean Sea edition to come up with a new theory on the Bermuda Triangle mystery. Here is his drawing showing a force vortex created by the eruption of an underwater volcano. The vortex sucks in anything in its path including alien spaceships!... Stay safe out there!”

6. There are Super-Cool Prizes up for Grabs 

Our creative competitions come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Children are invited to design their own Pokémon, imagine what a ‘deforestation monster’ would look like, or make their own ice decorations. Previous prizes have included books, games, artwork, nature sets, solar houses and construction kits. Our competitions are a great way for children to share their ideas, be creative and win fantastic prizes.

7. We're Award-Winning

Eco Kids Planet won a prestigious Gold Award THREE years running in the 2020, 2019 & 2018 Parents’ Choice Awards. The award recognises the top children’s magazines, as voted upon by the Parents’ Choice Awards committee members, including families and educators. We're thrilled and honoured to receive this TOP prize. Plus, all of our articles are written by award-winning British authors. Your kids deserve the best!

"Eco Kids Planet is beautifully designed and laid out, with stunning colour photos, expertly researched, realistic illustrations, and an overall writing style that honours children’s intelligence, while stimulating their natural curiosity for the world around them." Parents’ Choice

8. We Raise Little Scientists with Big Minds

Do you have a little scientist at home? Does your child like making slime, observing wildlife, or making an erupting volcano? Each issue takes your child on a new investigation, encouraging them to use skills such as measuring, collecting, calculating, observing, questioning and designing. Turn a weekend walk into an exciting nature investigation or spend time playing in your garden with activities that help local wildlife!

9. We're Committed to Excellent Service 

Unlike most magazine subscriptions, our flexible service lets you choose your start issue and preferred delivery date. Whether it’s a last-minute birthday gift or an early Christmas present, we go out of the way to deliver it on time. The first issue is shipped in a white envelope (so your child can’t see what’s inside) and marked “Open on xx date.”

"Thank you, Eco Kids ...We’re all loving our first monthly magazine. Fast order and delivery... Well done!”

10. We're Eco-Friendly and Plastic-Free!

When our magazine arrives in the post, it won’t be sealed in plastic. 100% of the magazine is recyclable and it’s delivered in a paper envelope. Rather than filling it with plastic toys, we give you FREE paper crafts, giant world maps and gorgeous posters. We use biodegradable vegetable ink, and print on responsibly sourced paper (FSC certified). When we make and send out our magazines, we always take great care of the environment.
