The new monthly magazine is designed to build curious minds and inspire readers to design their own LEGO models and unleash their creativity, says Egmont.
The magazine has been developed by Egmont Publishing with the support of official LEGO designers and is focused on learning, discovery and creativity.
The magazine has a STEAM focus, encouraging young readers to go on a journey through the worlds of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths, as well as teaching them new LEGO skills. In each issue, say the publishers, readers will also find loads of innovative tips and tricks to make the most of their LEGO collection, plus there is an exclusive, collectible LEGO toy that complements every issue.
Every month, LEGO Explorer is dedicated to a different and engaging STEAM topic, allowing readers to explore a new theme in each issue. The first issue of LEGO Explorer is dedicated to Marvellous Machines and explores the world of robots and artificial intelligence. The magazine combines information from both the real and the LEGO world about everyday technical companions and has activities, including building instructions for different robot friends, technology puzzles, experiments and challenges.
As well as being available to consumers on the newsstand from 21st October, Egmont will be entering into the subscriptions market. With subscriptions available online, readers can have 3 issues delivered to their door for £5.
Laura Adnitt, Publishing Director said: “We’re sure that LEGO Explorer will be loved by both kids and parents, and the STEAM themes are sure to engage young readers in educational topics alongside their much-loved LEGO bricks. We’re delighted to be launching this magazine with a direct to consumer subscription offer. We know that young readers will love collecting all the themed issues, and will revel in building the exclusive LEGO covermounts every month.”
Issue 1 of LEGO Explorer magazine is released on 21st October for £3.99.
