Get Your Gamer Kid 12 Free Digital Issues Of Little Player Magazine  

Does your kid love video games? Does he or she need some reading material that doesn’t conjure up visions of school? Then check this out: Right now, you can get 12 free digital issues of Little Player, a video game magazine made just for kids.

Download year one (issues one to six) here and year two (issues seven to 12) here.

The idea for the magazine came to a dad named Martin Alessi when he noticed that while kids are obsessed with gaming, all the video game media out there is designed for mature audiences.

“One of the greatest joys I can remember from my childhood was getting an issue of Nintendo Power in the mail,” he writes. He wants today’s young gamers to experience that same thrill of geeking out over print.

Little Player, geared for kids ages five to 12, is written by video game industry veterans, teachers, and gamer mums and dads.

I checked out issue nine, which features previews of games and hardware, “big and little reviews” by adults and kids, special moves you can do in Super Mario Odyssey, and the history of how Super Mario 64 paved the way for this generation of Super Mario games. If your kids have their own review to share, they can submit it and possibly see it published.

If this is all making you, the parent, a bit wistful, know that every issue of Nintendo Power is also up on the internet. You’re welcome.
