Petra’s Planet interactive magazine launches in UK and Ireland

Published on: 7th July 2016

The interactive digital magazine introduces Nordic style learning.

petra480Launched on 4th July and developed by Finnish company Dramaforum, Petra’s Planet draws on the Nordic approach to learning by combining fun, quality content, and cultural and environmental awareness with the concept of global citizenship.

With the digital magazine, children can learn about different countries, cultures, customs, food and animals as they travel with a character named Petra.

Dramaforum founder and mother-of-two, Eevamaria Halttunen, commented: “We know that children learn while playing – and that possibility also exists during screen time. With Petra’s Planet, children engage online in a way that is fun but also helps them to learn more about the world around them. By learning about new countries, cultures, and nature, we can foster compassion towards people and respect for the natural world. It also makes reading fun and that’s great news for parents and children.”

The digital magazine is published monthly and comes with downloadable activities, including a printable passport for children to update. Subscribers can complete creative projects, solve interactive puzzles, read news and reviews, and complete quizzes.

The e-magazine is in the Apple and Android app stores, and available via Amazon, Windows 8, and Sainsbury’s Entertainment, on the Pocketmags digital news stand, and direct from www.petrasplanetmagazine.com.
