Great for both children and adults!

Operation Ouch! magazine is the official children’s magazine of the award-winning BBC TV show. Packed full of interactive puzzles, eye-opening experiments and awesome facts, it follows twin doctors Dr Chris and Dr Xand van Tulleken alongside Dr Ronx as they explore the fascinating worlds of medicine and human biology.

We were sent a copy for my daughter to review. Here's what she thought...

In "Ouch!" magazine you can read all about the body, how it works, and get tips on how to stay healthy. I enjoyed reading it and I think it is a good magazine.

I especially liked the section on pages 22-23: ‘Can you run barefoot?’ It taught me a lot about the soles of your feet and why it is very important to have sensible footwear on whilst running. I was extremely surprised when I found out that your feet have 200,000 nerve endings! No wonder stepping on a piece of Lego hurts so much! I also enjoyed reading about hiccups and what causes them. It helped me understand where they come from and what you can do to stop them (nothing). I also tried the balloon breaths on pp. 58-59 but that didn't go well as I couldn't stop laughing. 

If there was one thing I think they could improve it would be the contents page. A few of the subjects covered in the magazine are listed on the back page but I wasn’t told where to go to if I wanted to read about eyes, for instance. I think that a more traditional contents page would have been better.

Overall, however, I think that this magazine is great both for children and adults. You can learn lots from it and has bits in that will make you laugh. I would recommend it if you are into the body and how it works, and if you need to do some research for a project.

Out of the mouths of babes, eh?
