I have an 11 year old niece who is very very interested in fashion. I would like to get her something different for chrissy and I thought about a magazine subscription but have no idea what is approapriate ie dolly etc. Can someone a whole lot younger than me advise what would be an age appropriate mag I can get her....
Last christmas I gave my 10yo niece a subscription to Total Girl which she loved. She asked for another subscription this year as she loved getting something every month in the mail. This year I went with this one as her mum said she was looking at the mag in the newsagency and thought it was 'cool':
Thanks for the Dolly suggestion, I was a little hesitant re this mag cause if I remember (which was a long time ago) it did contain stuff that might not go down well with her mum..... I might pop into the newsagent and check one out.
I did look at the Total girl but didnt know if it was "too young" but will check that out too.
My 12 year old has had total girl for a few years and has asked for her subscription to be renewed for another year.
I read Dolly the other day in a Dr's surgery as I was expecting her to want to upgrade soon, but to be honest, I'm glad she likes Total Girl and I don't know if I would be comfortable with Dolly. While it's not that bad, it's definitely no longer for innocent girls. I remember reading it at 12.
if she is really obsessed with fashion why not get a proper couture mag like vogue or harpers? tbh the mags for young girls are just pure fluff but if she really has a keen interest in fashion (not just teen trends) it might be very inspiring for her
I went to buy Dolly for my DD when she was about 14 and just flicked through the issue first. What an eye opener. When I was buying Dolly the medical advice pages were full of pimples and periods but the issue I looked at had a girl writing in for advice on what to do about her boyfriend, who was also having sex with her brother!
