Redan Publishing has announced the launch of Skoodle, a new multi-character, art and design focused magazine, bursting with imaginative ideas for children who love to be creative! Aimed at the Primary age group, readers can Sketch and Doodle with popular characters, including Barbie, Monster High, Piñata Smashlings, Rainbocorns and many more, says the publisher.
Skoodle aims to help children to independently explore and express their artistic abilities including fashion designing, sticker mosaics, 3D papercrafts, doodling challenges, sketching activities and much more.
Speaking of the new magazine, the publisher expanded, Skoodle interlaces current art trends with popular licensed character art and encourages readers to use their imagination, express themselves and really celebrate their own creativity. The 4-weekly magazine will provide an escape from everyday stresses, boosting mental health and wellbeing.
Content includes a combination of activities using popular licensed character artwork as well as original activities utilising the new Skoodle Squad brand.
Redan says it is expanding on the marketing usually embarked upon for a magazine launch and for the first time are running a pre-roll advertising campaign on YouTube commencing from the launch date. In addition, Skoodle is ‘taking over’ UK Mums.TV for two weeks with exclusive competitions, free activity downloads and influencer reviews.
Becky Mitchell, Redan’s managing editor adds: “We’re extremely excited about the launch of Skoodle, it has been in development for many months and to see it in print is such a great feeling. My hope is that Skoodle will give readers the opportunity to try new ideas, be resourceful, inventive and develop their creative confidence. With opportunities both on and off the page, Skoodle is bursting with ideas for readers to explore, experiment and most importantly, have lots of fun!”
When asked, ‘what is your favourite part of the magazine?’, Becky went on to say: “The Skoodle logo looks really striking so I’m most pleased with that! Developing the Skoodle branded letters page and activity pages and inviting our readers to join in and become part of the Skoodle Squad is really exciting too.”
