Disappointed!

Comments about Ideals Christmas Issue:

At one time I had subscribed to this magazine as a Gift for my Grandmother. It was a beautiful magazine and she greatly enjoyed it as did my Aunts when they were visiting her. She kept them and enjoyed them for a long time after she received them. The one I recently does not compare and is not worth the price. The quality is not up to par. I was disappointed. However, the poems are lovely and so are the pictures so I will send them to my Aunts, but will not order again. I think anyone who had not seen the original Ideals Magazine might be very happy with it.

Pros

  • COPY of original

Cons

  • Disappointing
  • Not Like Original

Best Uses

  • Will not order again

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

IDEALS has been a Christmas 'must have' tradition for decades, in our family. When my children were little, we would gather around our fireplace and read some of it every evening. We did this till they were grown. Mother had a subscription to IDEALS for years! Sad to say, that is no longer possible. We miss it very much. I was so excited when I found it was still available. Would be nice if it was by subscription, again! All of the IDEALS are worth reading but the Christmas issue is a necessity!

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
