Kennedy Publishing readies Yoohoo & Friends magazine

Kennedy Publishing is releasing a brand new magazine inspired by the toy line and animated series, Yoohoo & Friends.

Boasting 32 pages that will feature the characters from the successful Aurora World toy line, the magazine will make its debut in June 2017.

Aimed at kids aged from three to seven, the magazine will support the educational concept of the toy line, which is based on endangered species, while also providing engaging content for readers.

The magazine will also be packed full with puzzles, stories and colouring centred on the brand’s values of friendship, exploration and adventure.

“We are excited to be working with Aurora World for the new Yoohoo & Friends magazine,” said Sophie Rowlands, licensing manager at Kennedy Publishing.

“With over 80 million plush toys sold worldwide and the news that Aurora has partnered with Mondo TV for a brand new 3D CGI TV series, currently being offered to International broadcasters, we feel now is the ideal time to bring the brand to magazine format.

“With high quality editorial and design backed by strong support at retail, we’re confident this magazine will be a great success.”
