Leading independent children’s magazine publisher Redan Publishing is partnering with Studio AKA to add Hey Duggee to its trusted Fun To Learn range.
Redan is well known for its popular Fun To Learn portfolio of licensed pre-school titles which includes FTL Peppa Pig, FTL Bing and FTL Friends magazines. The award-winning publisher will now introduce a standalone title with Hey Duggee.

A popular Hey Duggee story will be re-told throughout the magazine, interspersed with a stimulating mix of activities including stickers, crafts, recipes and games. All activities are specifically aimed at nurturing key learning skills.
Julie Jones, MD at Redan Publishing, said: “We absolutely adore Hey Duggee and have been waiting for an opportunity to feature him in our Fun To Learn compilations for a long time. We are thrilled to now have the rights to publish the standalone too and can’t wait to get started. With our wealth of experience in creating content for very early learners, we feel confident we will create a product that will delight all the Hey Duggee fans out there, big and small.”
