5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for young children January 14, 2007
By jtk
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Zootles is a relatively new bimonthly from the creators of Zoobooks. Zootles features vivid, colorful spreads of wild animals, drawings of wildlife, stories, poems, games and other activities geared towards very young children aged 2 to 6. Each Zootles issue features a different animal and the focus tends to be on young animals or those often popular with young children (e.g. baby zebras, tiger cubs, rabbits, horses, elephants).

Zootles presents the material in an educational and fun way without being "baby-ish". The themes tend to revolve around physical and developmental characteristics of the animal mixed in with fundamental learning skills such as reading, rhymes, counting and pattern recognition.

Each issue features a particular number and letter each month and there is a recurring character, an otter, which is part of an regular comic strip on the back cover, that playfully guides the entire magazine along. The middle includes a bit more advanced detail about the animal featured and a page or two of additional resources and tips for parents who wish to engage their children further based on the current issue's theme.

There is no advertising other than the subscriber insert cards for the magazine itself. Each issue is about 20 pages.

This is one of the few magazines I've found most appropriate for and enjoyable by very young children. I also suggest you consider Ladybug, which is geared towards the same age group, but is a more general literary magazine with stories, poems, songs and games for kids in the same age bracket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to wildlife for preschoolers November 10, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year
My preschooler loves Ladybug, another periodical (with more of a language arts theme) for young children, and when I came across Zootles, I decided to give it a try. Zootles is a bimonthly publication and is a great magazine focusing on wildlife. The magazine is ad-free which is a great bonus in my opinion. Each publication features a particular animal, for example pandas, and the entire magazine (for those two months) has interesting facts about the pandas, covering their habitat, the panda babies, how they play, their diet, and a short story featuring the panda. The magazine also has a 'fun pages' feature which comprises fun activities like coloring, drawing, and other learning activities.There are plenty of full-color photographs about the featured animal as well as beautiful illustrations. Highly recommended for ages 3-6.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great little subscription for older toddlers April 23, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This subscription focuses on animal science concepts, mainly physical features, subspecies, and interesting fact. Very limited on th phonics, and number focus, but maybe that is why it is a science subscription, lol. Some facts were even new for me. Example, you can easily tell the various monkys from apes because monkeys have tails, apes (gorillas, chimpes, orangutans, bonobos) do NOT. How cool is that. The photos are outstanding in this magazine, the poems are sweet and emphasize rhyming. The section in the middle for extension ideas is super and can take it to that 6 ending range or keeps it simple for the 2s. Lots of sensory activities which is great for the little ones. I will renew. Only thing that would make this a 5 star would be a few more letter/number activites.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very cute magazine, but not for my kid September 18, 2013
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
My daughter is 2.5 and we have been getting Zootles for about half a year or more. I'm not very excited about this magazine:

1. It is limited to 10 pages or so and comes only once a month!
2. More than half of the magazine is drawn, which is a negative to us since my daughter prefers real life photos to drawings.
3. Not very well organized, really hard to concentrate on anything when you get to a page.

One good aspect of it is that there are no advertisements, but now that I have this magazine, I would rather have the ads and rip them out before giving the mag to my daughter, than settle for something that is bellow my expectations in content.

Is this sturdy enough for 14 month old?
Probably not. While perhaps slightly more durable than The Economist, it is probably on par with a typical adult magazine such as Harpers, Atlantic Monthly or The New Yorker, albeit with few pages. I think I might only have two staples for a binding, so it isn't going to be terribly resilient... Read More

is this magazine good for a two yr old
Zoobies, a sister magazine might be more appropriate content-wise. Babybug, from another publisher might also be worth checking out.
