Highlights Fun With A Purpose Offers New App Experience

Highlights Fun With A Purpose

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 Fun With a Purpose Every Day is 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.

What To Expect

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.

    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! 🙂
