Parenting Introduces iPad Exclusive Quarterly

Forget boring socks and underwear.  This season parents will find what they really need in their stockings: expert advice for raising their kids.  According to Folio, Parenting magazine’s parent company (does that make them the grandparent?) Bonnier Corp. has released an iPad only quarterly titled Parenting Seasons.  The all-digital venture will roll out winter, spring, summer, and fall editions and include a monthly calendar filled with parenting lessons.

Digital editorial director Rachel Fishman Feddersen says Parenting Seasons has a lot to offer subscribers:

We think we’re providing real value.  We didn’t want to just toss something on the iPad, we want to give people a lot for their money.

The pricing plan for Parenting Seasons varies depending on when issues are purchased – $2.99 at the start of a season, $1.99 midseason, and 99 cents at the end of the season.  The inaugural winter edition is sponsored by Gerber and Huggies.  How adorable?!
