Children’s love of a good arts and crafts magazine knows no bounds, and the latest offshoot from the ever-growing Fun to Learn Friends stable – Fun to Learn Friends Art – aims to capitalise on that. It is a monthly aimed at the core market for its other titles – boys and girls aged between three and seven – and includes a range of simple art and craft projects for pre-schoolers and infants (and their parents). There is also a giant sticker sheet and a pull-out card activity featured within its pages. Many of the activities revolve around familiar figures such as Paw Patrol, PJ Masks and Peppa Pig characters.

Who buys it?
When we get a new issue of Sidetracked in it goes like the clappers. It’s an extreme sports magazine and a mixture of customers buy it, including people who are quite active, but it’s taken over from the armchair travel magazines for people who want to look at things they might never do.
How do you display it?
We’ve got a good window display – we use music stands so we can open the pages and show off the contents. We had a spread for this issue and made a little feature of it.
