To the poster who gets her circles too late:
I live in Cleveland, and we were also getting them too late. Even though you can update the automated system do they'll send you another mag at the end of your year, my kids were frustrated because they were missing out.
Thankfully, we have a wonderful lady in the neighborhood who's the type to take initiative... And she got anyone in the neighborhood who subscribed to circle ahs wanted to join, to form a GROUP! now instead of us getting our circle in the mail on Thursday if we are lucky, it is shipped UPS and arrives at this lady's house on Monday, and a have a whole week to pick it up!!! (She keeps them in a large plastic bin with kid outside her for, so you can pickup whenever without knocking.)

Try that. It is great!

I don't know. Ask Circle. I guess it had to be kedai for them. I wonder if ten would be enough?

Also,,some ppl but it through the school and also get it ups in time.

I haven't looked at our group list recently or counted, but we are definitely over 30 families.

I just want to say that this really isn’t a “major promotion”.
A few weeks before subscribing I went to their website and a yearly subscription said $185.
When I called up after seeing the promotion ad they said it’s $195 for the year + free gift OR instead of the gift I can choose to get $10 off for $185 a year.

I skipped the free gift but had a laugh at the marketing tactic.

Pretty sure there’s a Chanukah sale for $20 off $185 making it $165

I subscribed to the spotlight magazine recently, and we're really enjoying it!
Lots to read, many interesting and diverse articles. I also get the junior and aim weekly , but the spotlight has way more material. So far happy with my choice.

Ha! I remember when a subscription to spotlight was still 30 something dollars some ten years ago. Oh, how times have changed! My kids still love it tho so still a subscriber. but was funny to watch how price kept going up each year. still worth every dollar!

Ten years? I thought it's a fairly new magazine...

Maybe not ten years, but it's definitely around for a while. I remember buying it for my dd when she was in first grade and she's in eighth now so you do the math

Here is my take:

The Hamida, Binah, Mishpacha, and Ami all have a kids magazine, I like the mishpacha Jr. best. I would not recommend you buy any unless someone will read the other magazines to, I heard that the Hamida and Binah will sell just the kids magazine but I do not think it is worth the money.

If you are looking just for Comics, I would recommend the Marshmallow over Comics because the Marshmallow story's began and end in the same magazine the Comics are all to be continued.

When I saw Mendy and the Golem in the store I was like I remember this from when I was a kid, when I brought it I saw that it was the same magazine, they must have sat in some warehouse for years and now are reselling them.

I liked the Kidalingo(English) when it came out once a week and was the same as the Yiddish, now it comes out once a month and there is nothing in there, every time I buy it I am what am I paying for.

I find that the Circle and the spotlight have something for all ages, my kids will read it and reread them- they don't like that the spotlight comes out once a month.

The WOW magazine is a Science magazine with a few pages of Comics and jokes, my kids do like it.

Did I leave any out?

You did your homework well! LOL
Are you subscribed to all? Can you share the prices for subscriptions too?
