My son with “Ask”, one of Cricket’s magazines

Disclosure- I am a Cricket Media Ambassador, and received the below in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own and honest.  For more information, see “I Disclose”.

Over the next few months, we will be featuring a line of Cricket Media magazines.  The first in this series is Ladybug.  Ladybug is made for children aged 3 to 6 years old.  Ladybug magazine features young child level stories of small length perfect for a bed time tale or an afternoon escape.  What makes this magazine so special is that there are not only stories in it, but also poems, songs, and beautiful illustrations to complement them.  Sometimes the stories are in familiar picture book format with picture on top and text at the bottom of the page, while others are in a more freestyle format where words are printed in various parts of the page from leaves in a tree to an underwater cavern.   The stories included range from fiction to nonfiction.  You might read anything from a kids account of city life to facts about various countries. Songs are presented with not only lyrics but also the music in order to play the song on a musical instrument which would be great fun for those parents or children musically inclined.  Ladybug offers an interactive sampler to give you a taste for the magazine which is a nice touch.

Ladybug magazine subscriptions are delivered 9 times per year and are advertisement free (amazing), have recurring characters like Molly and Emmett, as well as Ladybug, Muddle and Thud for you and your kids to “get to know”.  Each issue also has a 4 page activity section with crafts and puzzles as well.  The varied format of presentation, music, poems, and stories, as well as the various forms of story make for a great magazine e for kids 3-6 and also makes for an interesting read at nap or bed time.

pic4Ladybug is available in both print and digital format.  Print is available for $33.95 per year and digital for $17.99 per year, a combination of both, $51.90.  There are also plush bundles and express shipping available.


  1. We received something similar when we were younger before we subscribed to Highlights and loved it! I’m sure my two would love getting some mail to look forward to.

  2. I bet my son would love this magazine! I’m going to have to see if I can download it for him!
