Who didn’t love reading Highlights magazine? I’m pretty sure that, literally, everyone I knew read it and loved it. It was truly a staple of my childhood, creating many fond memories.

Well, guess what? I have some awesome news!!! Highlights for Children, Inc., publisher of the most-read children’s magazine, announced its new interactive mobile experience, Highlights Every Day. In today’s crowded digital landscape, Highlights Every Day offers the screen time kids crave, backed by the quality content parents have always trusted and expected from Highlights.

Created in partnership with Fingerprint, Highlights Every Day features classic Highlights “Fun with a Purpose” reimagined for growing digital consumption habits of children. With kids’ screen time averaging more than four hours a day, parents are increasingly concerned about what their kids are doing with their devices.

Highlights Every Day delivers high-quality content that’s both fascinating to kids and trusted by their parents. This content includes original videos and quizzes, engaging fiction and non-fiction, and fun puzzles that build skills and stretch young minds. Included, of course, is the iconic Hidden Pictures puzzle popularized by Highlights.

 

Each day, the child is presented with a wrapped gift. When clicked upon, the gift releases up to five new pieces of content—a delightful mix of activities to read, watch, and do.  The more kids use the app, the more activities they will accumulate. They can scroll through their collection, personalizing their experience by saving their favorites and consuming expertly crafted content that inspires them, in the Highlights tradition, to become their best selves—creative, curious, caring, and confident.

  1. This magazine has been around for so long, I remember getting it as a kid!! Its nice to know that they aren’t fading out but rather adapting to the times!! Love it!

  2. I use to get these all the time when I was younger. I can’t believe they’re still around! I need to check them out for my girls. I loved them when I was younger.

  3. I am excited about this app, I didn’t read as a kid, but my older two and younger two now read it

  4. Oh I loved Highlights growing up! My favorite was the pictures where you got to find things hidden in them! I cannot wait to share with our little one!

  5. I used to read Highlights with both of my children who are now 23 and 14, so it has been around for awhile. I’d love my 2 grandsons to be able to check out Highlights, and I am glad they now have an app.

  6. I read Highlights as a kid. Loved it. Read one to my son at his dr appt. He loved looking and find things just as much as I did.

  7. I loved reading Highlights when I was younger. I am very excited about the app!

  8. Yes, I loved reading Highlights when I was as a kid. I especially liked finding all the little images in the larger drawing that they would have in every issue. It’s awesome that they have an app now. I was unaware that they did until I read this! 🙂
