I receive this magazine monthly and I am happy I did not have to pay for the subscription. I used some frequent flier miles in order to get this magazine and have been dissappointed in it. The articles when you first see them on the cover seem like they will interesting but usually they are not. The clothes and toys they show are very expensive and not many families would pay that much for clothes that the kids will grow out of in two months. Most of the pages are too busy in my opinion. They have random facts all over the pages. The stuff I do like in the magazine is the travel section becuase that is something we all need to have raising kids! I don't really get excited when I get the magazine in the mail and usually it sits around for a few days before I read it. Would not recommend for anyone to buy it.
