ChickaDEE Magazine celebrates 35 years in children's hearts

Since our celebration window has gone up, not an hour goes by without a squee of joy from outside our doors. So many Torontonians have a deep connection to chickaDEE magazine, and they have been delightfully reminiscing about the interactive stories, puzzles, animal features, and science experiments they did as kids, or do with their kids now.

Created in 1979, chickaDEE satisfies the 6- to 9-year-old’s insatiable thirst for knowledge and appetite for humour. chickaDEE acknowledges the growing independence of primary-aged children and fosters their curiosity about and connection to the world around them. Happy 35th Anniversary chickaDEE!
