Ideals is a publication I look forward to during the holidays - not just Christmas -- unfortunately Ideals does not publish the same number of issues as they did 10 or 20 years ago. I went to book stores & told Ideals were no longer in business - so thank you very much for having Ideals in your catalog. The art work, poetry, stories are wonderful - the hope & reassurance that there is hope in the world.

sharla r on Oct 3, 2019
I get one of these Ideals Christmas books each year. I am absolutely amazed at the additional charges for a book that only costs $14.99. A $2.99 handling charge on a booklet is excessive and your charges for taxes is way out of line, I live in Virginia and I know what our sales taxes are and you charge me too much. We willl have to look at other sources the next time we get ready to make a catalog purchase.
Amelia I on Sep 30, 2019
Remember these from my childhood.

Is this the 2014 edition?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I haven't received the order yet...I am hoping it will be the 2014 edition. If not, back it will go! It's a shame that the cover, as pictured, doesn't show the year, nor does the description in the catalog. I am confident, however, that MK would not offer last year's edition. :)
How often is Ideal Magazine published?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It used to be 6 times a year
Summer
Autumn
Thanksgiving
Christmas
Spring/Easter
Mother's Day
But in the last 10 years all I have been
Able to find is their Christmas issue.
I'm not even sure they have subscriptions anymore!
Hope that helped - dina
Is this the 2016 issue?
What is the publication year?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have not purchased the 2016 issue as yet. But, I always get my ideals books from miles kimball--cheaper than anywhere else and they are such good gifts.
