Highlights For Children
The first print issue should arrive in 6-10 weeks.
International Addresses: Magazine subscriptions offered at Amazon.com can only be shipped within the 50 United States, APO/FPO address and U.S. Protectorates. We are unable to process magazines to other destinations at this time. Please contact the magazine's publisher for further assistance.
When to Expect Your First Issue: Magazine subscriptions ordered at Amazon.com are shipped to you by the magazine's publisher. The first issue of a weekly magazine should arrive within 4-6 weeks of your order. The first issue of a monthly magazine should arrive within 6-10 weeks, unless otherwise noted.
Once you've placed an order at Amazon.com, it can take one to two weeks for your subscription to be received and scheduled by the publisher. Your subscription is then added to the publisher's next production cycle and shipped via standard mail. For example, if your monthly subscription was ordered and received by the publisher in November, and the December issue has already shipped, your order may be added to the January mailing. You can find out more information, including how to contact the publisher about your subscription, in Amazon's Magazine Subscription Manager.
Renewing Your Subscription: If you are ordering as a renewal to the same name and address as the current subscription, the publisher will add the Amazon order to your current subscription. For example, if you have 5 issues left and you add 12 through Amazon, you will now have 17 issues left on your subscription. Please note that the expiration date in the Magazine Subscription Manager will not reflect if you were already on file with the publisher. We will work with the publisher to ensure that you still receive all of the issues left on your subscription.
Publication Frequency: Magazines which show "irregular" availability are those which are not published according to a regular schedule. If you place an order for such a magazine, you will receive new issues as soon as they are available.

I do not doubt that they engage in the practices that are alleged. The stories are too similar to discount and why would anyone lie about it. I am guessing that because the billing and shipping addresses differ we are not subject to the problem. I notice that grandparents are not complaining about the practice. It appears that because they have no billing information on the recipient they don't bother with the scam.
My advice is to have the grandparents order the magazine for the kids if you want to receive it.
If we ever did receive the item(s), then they must have been thrown away as we do with all unsolicited junk.
My research on RipoffReport, BBB and Amazon websites shows that Highlights for Children is in the business of violating the law about sending unsolicited items. See Title 39, United States Code, Section 3009. That section of the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970 makes the mailing of unordered merchandise unfair methods of competition and unfair trade practices under the law. Highlights for Children also breaks the federal law by following the unsolicited mailing with a bill or harassing communication. See the article "Receipt of Unsolicited Merchandise" on the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
I intend to do the following and invite others in my situation to do the same:
1. File a complaint with local postmaster and nearest Postal Inspector;
2. File a complaint with BBB and highlight to BBB the other numerous complains for this company;
3. File a complaint with FTC;
4. Consider a class action lawsuit; and
5. Spread the word about these scam artists.
However, be wary once your a customer and a client because you will be in their records. Their marketing trick is to keep on sending you "gifts" or packages of more books or puzzles even up to the point that you dont even ask for it. Later on you'll be charged for it for not returning their books (of course you will mistakenly think they were part of your subscription in the first place.) So you will incur charges, even late fees if you dont pay. And cancelling can be a pain too! You will be in their "collection agency" if you don't pay up. Bad customer service!
