A creative children's magazine with a difference - Meet the marvellous Munch Cats! #MunchCatsMag

On the blog we're always interested in new magazines and comics for kids - particularly when they take a stand against ad-laden movie / tv licence driven plastic-tat magazines.

Needless to say, the subject matter of cute chibi cats, creativity and awesome activities was of massive interest to my daughter - and so Munch Cats Magazine plopped through our letterbox!

Available issue by issue from most reputable stockists, but also through subscription, the first thing you'll notice about the magazine (aside from the uber-cute kitty filled cover) is the fact that this one doesn't come wrapped in a single-use plastic wrapper (subscription copies arrive in a recyclable envelope - HOORAY!)

You'll also notice there are no ads, no tacky plastic gifts - but instead the magazine features a 6 page fold-out activity cover, paper origami sheets, pull-out interactive story book, 2 full-size sheets of stickers and so much more! There are board games, puzzles, colouring sheets and of course tons and tons of cute cats - what could be better?

Issue 4 is about to hit the news stands, available through ASDA, Morrisons, Waitrose, Tesco and your local newsagent, or order online securely through PayPal via the Munch Cats Website (where you'll also find lots of fun downloads and activities to get you started!)

We really loved the mix of crafting and awesome origami in the magazine, absolutely perfect for kids who love papercraft, colouring, drawing and making things. We also really loved the idea that the magazine encourages kids to think about household waste, and how they can upcycle items into cool and fun new things to play with too. A truly awesome idea!

Get on board with Bubble Cat, Pudding Cat, Noodle Cat and the rest of the fabulous Munch Cats (C's favourite Munch Cat is Honey Cat who loves reading) for a brilliant fun packed and creative new kids mag with a ton of eco-cred.

(Disclaimer: We were sent a single issue of Munch Cats Magazine in exchange for a fair review).
