Last Minute Gifts Review and giveaway: Zoobooks


How cute is this? I remember getting Zoobooks as a kid so of course I was planning on passing that tradition on to my kids. However, Zoobooks are for kids 6-12 and I didn't think they made any magazines for little ones the same age as my kiddos. BUT they do! And it's called Zoobies. Cute, right? Don't worry if Zoobooks has all ages covered now! Zoobies are for kiddos ages 0-3, Zootles ages 3-6 and Zoobooks ages 6-12! Thanks to Zoobooks I was able to check out all three of these magazines and let you know what I thought of them all!

Zoobies Magazine perfect for little ones!
Give a gift that shows you care all year long! The youngest wildlife explorer deserves their own magazine, so we created Zoobies! Cuddle up and read it aloud and you'll explore penguins, tigers, bears and more. The simple text and eye-popping photos engages the youngest animal fans.

Each Zoobies provides:
• Lift-the-flap and peek-a-boo fun
• Beautiful photography & illustrations— to catch their interest
• Engaging ways to learn about concepts such as colors, shapes and sizes
• Durable and tough and just right for little hands
• Ideas for nature fun for your whole family!

Zootles Magazine for Kids 2-6
Share the joy of discovering the animal world with the child you love...


  • You'll get simple, interactive text that encourages discussion and active learning. Plus, Zootles is filled with amazing photographs, fascinating illustrations, and charming cartoon characters.





  • Pullout "Fun Pages" are packed with games, puzzles, and activities for young children, while parents get loads of ideas for extending-the-learning activities for the whole family.




  • PLUS, you'll get access to our online world of wildlife learning! 







  • You'll get amazing wildlife photography and illustrations that keep young readers engaged in this year-long wildlife adventure.
    Kids will learn about animal habitats, social life and conservation.
    And kids love getting their own mail, delivered 10 times a year.
    Plus, our online Secret Jungle Club gives kids videos, games, quizzes and tons of other fun stuff

    My Take: So I decided to share both the Zoobies and the Zootles magazines with my kids. I knew Zoobooks was too old for them but they did love the pictures and the giant hummingbird poster that was inside. First, we looked at the Zoobies magazine. My kids are 2 going on 3 and 1 going on 2.  We got a magazine that was all about turtles. It was perfect! It helped my kids review body parts and they loved how you could lift the flaps! I loved the end of the magazine where they shared tips with parents on how to make the magazine more interactive including links to videos online!

    Next we checked out Zootles. Although the ages are 3-6 I still think it's better for those kids in the upper age range. First the magazine has thinner pages unlike Zoobies. My kids could easily tear this one up (that's why I didn't let them read it alone). It also has more advanced and longer stories. Once again my kids loved the vivid and bright pictures but couldn't sit still through an article.
