Dora The Explorer And Friends Magazines – Review & Giveaway!

In honor of my one year blogoversary this week, and to say thank you to all of you for continuing to read and support Mommy of a Monster, I’m hosting an entire week of reviews and giveaways! Yay!
Be sure to check back all week long for additional giveaways!

I cannot even begin to tell you how excited Tater was to open up a package that had this inside of it:

A package full of Dora the Explorer and Friends magazines! See that in the top corner of the magazine? 70 stickers inside! That right there is what immediately sold Tater on the magazine. Well, that and the fact that he loves anything and everything Dora related.
But what made me love these magazines are that each one comes with coloring pages, stories, puzzles, and games. There are places for the kids to trace letters and learn their alphabet. The pages are super colorful and the entire magazine is fun…I even enjoy sitting down and reading/playing with them with Tater! There are also sections on many pages with “A note to grown-ups”. The note tells you what each activity is helping your child learn and accomplish.
These magazines have been so incredibly well received in our house that I even became an affiliate with Titan Magazines so that I can share the Dora the Explorer and Friends magazines with everybody! If you click on the Dora the Explorer and Friends magazines in my sidebar, or on this link here, you can get a subscription for your children for only $17.99! And believe me, it’s worth every penny!

But because I love the magazine so much, I decided to ask if I could giveaway a subscription in honor of my one year blogoversary, and they said yes! So one lucky winner is going to receive a subscription to the magazine. All you have to do is leave me a comment!

Good luck! I also have another giveaway going on today…click here for a chance to win a Mommy’s Medicine Cabinet of your own!

Also…I have a syndicated post over on BlogHer today full of tips for new bloggers! I’d love if you could check it out!

And so it goes…
