1.0 out of 5 stars 100% Advertisements November 30, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I wondered what happened when I saw the price for Family Fun magazine drop to $5.00 a year and then today I received my first issue. Back when my kids were little, this was "the" magazine for planning vacations, finding kid-friendly recipes, and planning entertaining but educational activities with the kids. Now it's 100% advertisements. Scattered throughout the magazine are about 30 blurbs from Facebook fans and Pinterest pals with ideas you've heard a million times. There are no professionally written articles. Not a single one.

Here's the December/January issue:

p. 0(inside front cover) Ad for Oral-B and Crest
p. 1 table of contents
p. 2 table of contents cont'd and credits
p. 3 ad for Hilton Resorts
p. 4 ad for Ore Ida hash browns
p. 5 ad for Ore Ida french fries
p. 6 ad for Kings Hawaiian bread
p. 7 facebook fans and pinterest pals (like I care)
p. 8 ad for Family Fun's iPhone app "ToyHopper" which recommends Christmas video games for kids (omg)
p. 9 ad for Pringles potato chips
p. 10 list of holidays in december and january (like national cocoa day)
p. 11 ad for Curel lotion
p. 12 ad for Toyota
p. 13 idea from Pinterest pal (I've seen this before, about 15 years ago, duh)
p. 14 how to make a really ugly and flimsy clothespin menorah
p. 15 ad for SpongeBob Christmas DVD and iTunes
p. 16 how to make two really tacky ornaments and a cute angel
p. 17 ad for Legos and Duplos
p. 18 how to make a table fan tree (same as it was 40 years ago when I did this in elementary school)
p. 19 ad for Orajel and Spinbrush toothbrush
p. 20 how to wrap a photo around a candle (ugh)
p. 21 ad for CakeBoss mail-order cakes
p. 22 ad for Karen Tack's cupcake books

Family Fun magazine is owned by the Disney company, and it's not hard to figure that out once you open an issue. There are ads for Disney movies, Disney parks, Disney toys, and Disney kids wear on almost every other page! If you got rid of all the ads, the magazine would be half its size or less. However, I can't knock this magazine too much. They have great ideas for crafts that are easy and fun for kids. These can vary from something simple like pipe cleaner people, to things more elaborate like castles made from cardboard boxes. I'm alwasy consistently impressed with their birthday party ideas as well. One idea they had was to make dinosaur "bones" out of sand and glue, and then bury them for a birthday party archeological dig. They also have ideas for creative birthday cakes. One cake they did looked just like a swimming pool. They have a section in the back that's about taking family-friendly vacations (always including Anaheim or Orlando in the mix, so you don't forget about Disney trips!) that is really helpful. Even though I have a few complaints, the magazine does live up to its name and provides lots of ideas for family fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the BEST magazine out there June 10, 2002
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is ABSOLUTELY the best family magazine out on the market today. It beats the others hands down for creative ideas and their suggestions and ideas are easy, fast and no hassle for working parents to be able to do with their kids. Their vacation/travel tips are great too. I like that they rate different places based on how much there is for different age groups to do at each place - it takes a lot of the guess work out of family vacation planning! The articles are informative, well written, and interesting. The crafts are easy to do, require little creative ability (so literally anyone can do them), and generally do not involve specialty items that are hard to find. I really like the fact that this magazine is more geared towards helping families have fun with each other while recognizing that not all of us have 3 hours each day to devote to doing the activities that they suggest. Most of the crafts and activities can be done in less than an hour and they are just as easy for younger kids as they are for older kids but are still interesting to both age groups. This magazine also doesn't "scare" parents with articles on complicated and rare developmental / medical problems. They present articles on common problems that are well researched, thought out, and well written. A definite must have for any busy parent who still wants to be able to do stuff with their kid(s).

5.0 out of 5 stars The most for your money in a family magazine! January 9, 2005
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I have been a subscriber to Family Fun for 4+ years and I have always enjoyed the magazine. I don't remember ever being disappointed in an issue.

I usually will read a magazine once just for entertainment value and then go back later and sort out the articles & ideas I want to keep on file for future reference. In most magazines this equates to a few pages to hang on to at the most. With Family Fun I always end up with a huge stack of ideas that I want to hang on to. What is even better is that these are tips and bits of information that I actually use and apply in our everyday lives. Practical, useful and fun are all words I would use to describe this publication.

My favorite features include:

"My great idea" - submitted by readers

"Family Almanac" - seasonal activities and resources

and the travel ideas. We have discovered many great places that our on our list to visit someday and we have even been able to add some wonderful and educational fun to trips we have already had planned.

Some reviews have complained about the magazine being owned by Disney. I'm not sure why that is such a problem, but I do realize some people don't like Disney. The truth is that some major corporation owns just about everything major magazine out there anyway. At least the Disney company has helped Family Fun gain a bigger audience and provided a fantastic web site as a resource companion to the magazine. I don't find that Disney is overly promoted (a rarity in the world of Disney I know!) in this magazine. There are plenty of reviews and references to very non-Disney products such as the Harry Potter series, Shrek movies, and hundreds of travel ideas that have nothing to do with anything related to a Disney enterprise.

This magazine has definitely earned the 5 star rating.
