Launch: Super Wings magazine

Specialist children’s publisher Signature Publishing has partnered with global animation and toy company Alpha Group for the launch of a new pre-school magazine.

Launch: Super Wings magazine
Amanda Clifford: “It’s a brand full of adventure, excitement, fun and friendship.”

Launching 10th January, the magazine is based on a TV series, Super Wings, which is broadcast in over 100 countries. In the UK, Series 1-3 is already airing through broadcast partners Cartoonito and Tiny Pop with series 4 launching in 2020.

According to Signature, the show follows Jett, an adorable plane, and his Super Wings friends as they travel the globe delivering packages to children. With each delivery, the characters meet new friends and encounter new challenges, which they must work together to solve. This curriculum-based series focuses on three core values of cultural diversity, adventure and teamwork. These values are reflected in the magazine throughout the stories, puzzles, colouring and more.

Julie Ball of Alpha Group UK comments: “We are thrilled to partner with Signature Publishing on a dedicated Super Wings magazine which will offer exciting new content to our young fans and enable them to immerse themselves in the brand.”

“Over the last couple of years, Signature have been great supporters of Super Wings’ content in Fantastic Funworld magazine,” comments Vickie O’Malley, MD Rockpool Licensing. “Their collaborative and commercial approach, creativity and positivity have made for a very productive working relationship and we’re excited to look forward to the launch of the Super Wings stand-alone magazine.”

“We’re so excited to be working with Alpha Group, creating a regular stand-alone Super Wings magazine,” says Amanda Clifford, Signature Publishing’s Editorial Director. “It’s a brand full of adventure, excitement, fun and friendship and the Super Wings magazine is sure to be a soaring success!”

Each issue of Super Wings comes with a gift. The launch issue features a 7-piece play set with two planes, accessories and play mat.

Targeting pre-schoolers aged 3-6 years, the magazine launches on 10th January and will be priced at £4.25.
