BBC Magazines to launch Disney Explorer next month

 MUMBAI: BBC Magazines will add another title to its pre-teen range on 25 September with the launch of Disney's Explorer, a publication containing facts, photographic spreads, unique features, fun experiments and competitions.

Disney Explorer will feature Disney characters such as Lilo and Stitch, with boys and girls aged 7-10 as the targeted readership. It joins pre-teen titles Disney's Comic and Disney Girl which were launched by BBC Magazines in April, and Disney's Big Time, which got transferred to BBC Magazines in January. Disney's Explorer is aimed at children with a passion for exploration and discovery, who love animals and are interested in nature and the environment, and who are fascinated by the weird and wonderful. The launch of the 36-page magazine will be supported by a range of in-store activity and sampling in 1,000 schools in the UK, says an official release.
