South Africa joined the Europe/Middle East territory in the fall of 1994, just as a new magazine was in the works. Disney's Kidz World is the first Disney magazine to be launched in South Africa and was launched in November of the same year. A small number of books and direct mail clubs already existed in South Africa, but this was actually the first Disney magazine to be published there.
The only magazine of its kind in the country, Kidz World is aimed at children aged 8 to 14 years, and is supported by K.T.V., the country's major children's television program.
The magazine contains 50% comic material and 50% editorial content. The editorial is created locally with a team of Whizz kidz," children aged 13 to 16 from across the country.Trends, movie reviews, books, videos, computer games, celebrity profiles, puzzles, games, ecology and wildlife conservation, TV programs, travel, contests and comic fill 100 pages every month. Letters and reader contributions are key to the magazine; in fact, readers are able to communicate with the editorias via an electronic bulletin board. The title went bi-weekly in July of 1995; the cover price is R 5,50 (approximately US$ 1,55).
