Mind Candy is taking the wraps off its second magazine later this week – with a dedicated title to Poppet hitting shelves.
Launching on Thursday, March 27th, the title is aimed at six to 11 year olds and is hoping to be a ‘fun, exciting and creative outlet for girls’.
The title will have a strong focus on technology and encourage readers to be leaders. Each issue will include a feature looking at different roles for women within the technology industry; including developers, product managers and coders.
Poppet’s four new friends will also be introduced, each with their own unique personality and skills. For example, Zaffi is a tech savvy Moshi with a passion for gadgets who runs her own ‘Tech Squad’, encouraging readers to learn more about coding and technology with puzzles, interviews and facts. Readers can complete tech-related challenges and earn their own badge of honour to join the Tech Squad.
Other characters include Juno, Serena and Lucki.
The title has been created by the in-house publishing team at Mind Candy and in partnership with Skyjack Publishing. The first issue is themed around Earth Day, with Poppet teaching readers about how they can help look after the environment.
Jessica King, editor of Poppet magazine, said: "It’s incredibly exciting to have Poppet launch her own magazine. This magazine is an exciting read for children and not only does it encourage their creativity, but it also highlights topical issues that affect children."
Poppet magazine will be available every four weeks and is priced at £2.99.
