Time Out Malaysia Kids

Kuala Lumpur, 3 June 2015 – Award-winning city guide Time Out Kuala Lumpur today officially unveils the launch edition of its specialist magazine for families – Time Out Malaysia Kids.

Time Out Malaysia Kids launches as a quarterly magazine, suitable for parents and families with children from the ages of zero to 16 years old. It is priced at RM5.90 and is available at leading bookstores nationwide and as a digital edition on the Apple iTunes Store and Google Play for Android.

The demand for trustworthy, useful advice for family activities in Malaysia has never been higher. Now, Time Out Malaysia Kids delivers all the guidance needed in an entertaining, user-friendly read. Whenever a family wants to know what to do this weekend, where to go during the school holidays or how to throw the best birthday parties, Time Out Malaysia Kids is here.

The magazine – which follows the successful format of Time Out Kuala Lumpur – builds on the huge success of the annual Time Out Malaysia guidebook for children as well as a surge of traffic to the Kids section of www.timeout.com/kuala-lumpur, demonstrating the need for reliable information and listings. The Kids section on Time Out Kuala Lumpur ‘s website receives 15% of the site’s total 1.018 million page views per month and on Time Out Penang, the Kids content garners a significant proportion of the site’s 390,000+ page views per month.

Malaysia now boasts its own edition of a publication that can already be found in print and online in New York, Mexico, London, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

There are currently no other magazines or similar publications providing this type of information for parents in Malaysia, giving Time Out Malaysia Kids a unique edge in the market. Where the magazine will be the ideal guide for parents planning adventures and activities for the family, Time Out’s website and free App will host even more content, for the modern parent on the go who needs the information at their fingertips.

Time Out Malaysia Kids is a world of family-related topics including entertainment, eating out, parenting, education, child development, things to do and places to go – all curated by the award-winning Time Out Malaysia team.

The magazine is divided into eight sections of articles and listings, where readers will find all the latest openings, events and promotions. The sections are: Learning, Eating Out, Get Active, Shopping, Parenthood, Culture, Travel, and Time In (for Kids).

The team scoured the country to find out anything and everything the discerning parent needs to know, from where to get the coolest new pushchair to the best places to take the kids for an unforgettable day out.

Leading the Time Out Malaysia team is editor Leah O’Hearn, who oversees the team and also edits the annual Time Out Malaysia guides for Visitors, Shopping, Eating & Drinking and Penang.

Leah says “I am very excited for this launch of a magazine that will make a real difference to parents and families around Malaysia. I hope the new Time Out Malaysia Kids will quickly become the go-to resource for families looking for the best things to do and the best places to visit with their kids. I’m very proud of the magazine and how hard the team has worked to pull it all together.”

The public can grab the first issue at any major bookstore or newsstand in Malaysia from today for only RM5.90. The first issue can also be bought at eshop.mongooseasia.com at 20% off the cover price for a limited time only, while the digital copy is only USD0.99.

The launch of Time Out Malaysia Kids will be officially confirmed at an event at 1 Utama on 12th June 2015. For more details on the launch and to meet the Time Out Malaysia team there, visit www.timeout.com/kuala-lumpur/kids.
