Mister Maker, Tickety Toc Get Mags

Zodiak Kids has finalized deals with two magazine publishers to produce the first-ever Mister Maker and Tickety Toc stand-alone magazine titles in the U.K. and Eire.

Both titles will be available in 2014.

Immediate Media will produce the Mister Maker magazine beginning in June 2014. Each monthly issue will be filled with instant makes, art projects and ideas that will entertain and inspire, as well as a free art kit.

“There is already such enthusiasm for ‘Mister Maker’ on CBeebies. The magazine is the one-stop shop for children who love the program,” says Steph Cooper, editor, Mister Maker magazine. “The editorial is packed with Mister Maker-style humor and fun, offering creative and exciting challenges to preschool children.”

Signature Publishing will launch the Tickety Toc standalone magazine in summer 2014. The new preschool title will include stories, games, coloring activities and posters as well as a free gift with every issue. The Tickety Toc magazine will also be available in digital format and the show will be featured in Signature Publishing’s compilation magazines, Fantastic Funworld and Rainbow Fun

"Tickety Toc is one of the most exciting preschool brands around, so we are delighted to be working with Zodiak Rights on the standalone magazine," says Amanda Clifford, editor-in-chief, Signature Publishing. "Tickety Toc is a fantastic preschool property and has a unique appeal to boys and girls (and parents). It's a brand that's full of charm and fun, and we can't wait to publish the standalone magazine and incorporate it into our other existing preschool magazines.”
