WWE Kids Magazine on sale now!
Some of WWE's biggest fans are our littlest fans -- kids. They tune in to WWE programming week after week, log on to WWE.com and now they can grab a copy of WWE Kids Magazine to check out the latest in sports-entertainment and beyond.
"The goal of WWE Kids Magazine is to entertain and educate kids ages 6 to 14," said Vice President and Editor-in-Chief Tony Romando. "Through the power of their favorite Superstars, we're looking to challenge young fans' minds as well as bodies with tips on everything from healthy eating to history lessons."
The magazine, which is published once every two months, isn't just for WWE fans. There's a little something for every young reader to enjoy, including puzzles, comics and the latest in entertainment.
"Mind Slammers is the most popular section with WWE Kids readers. It's packed with puzzles, hidden picture challenges and activities that challenge every level of WWE Wrestling knowledge," Romando explained. "There are also match results in the magazine, great photos, pranks, sports, video game reviews and awesome Superstar interviews."
Don't be surprised if the parents of young readers are caught red-handed with a copy of WWE Kids Magazine. WWE.com recently talked to several Superstars and Divas who said they, too, are big fans of the colorful and exciting read.
"Of course I've read the new WWE Kids Magazine -- I, the Gold Standard, am prominently featured in it, after all," said ECW's Shelton Benjamin. "There's a great Fab vs. Flab section which highlights all of the perfect parts of my body." (Check it out)
Jillian's favorite section of the inaugural May/June 2008 issue is Slammin' Super Fans, which features hot A-List celebrities who are also big WWE fans.
"Bow Wow, Aaron Carter and Snoop Dogg are fans of WWE, or more importantly, fans of me," Raw's Diva songstress said. "Ashanti's a big fan, too. She sang ‘America the Beautiful' at WrestleMania XIX, but that's only because I wasn't available."
Finally, Matt Striker explained to WWE.com that being a former teacher, he is well-versed in children's publications, including a new favorite, WWE Kids Magazine.
"What I like about the magazine is that is brings our youth up to a level as opposed to talking down to them. Yes, there are cartoons and more children-friendly images, but we don't dumb down in the magazine," Your Teacher explained.
"This forces the youth of America to come up, maybe look a word up or ask their parents, heaven forbid, for some help! ‘Mom, what does ‘trepidations' mean?' or ‘Mom, what does ‘arrogant' mean?' -- Especially in a story about me, Matt Striker, Your Teacher," the ECW Superstar smiled.
"So I really do enjoy it. There are a lot of great features, and of course, being a kid myself, I really, really like a lot of the artistic ability that's in the magazine," he said. "I look forward to contributing to the magazine and perhaps writing a column. Maybe, Ask Your Teacher? What do you do think?"
Striker may believe he has some important lessons for WWE Kids Magazine readers, and with a publication packed with sports-entertainment, brain-busting puzzles and most importantly, fun, anything goes -- maybe even a lesson by Matt Striker, Your Teacher.
