Kindling Magazine – Volume 02: The Body Issue
A new magazine for people with children, from the team behind Kinfolk.
Kindling is a place to explore the new ideas and fresh perspectives that come with being a parent. It’s non-judgmental, unfussy and made to be enjoyed by anyone currently raising a child under the age of ten. We’re interested in exploring the big ideas around parenthood, not what your child should be having for dinner or wearing at the weekend. Compact and colorful, the magazine is designed to be kept and treasured—whether on a coffee table or a child’s bookshelf.
For the Body Issue, we’ve teamed up with Wow in the World to answer children’s most curious questions about their bodies, from “What is a vaccine?” to “Why do my teeth fall out?” We also hear from the Swedish social worker who successfully campaigned for the “snippa”—a neutral word to replace the many euphemisms used for female genitals, and report on the important role of parents and caregivers in making children feel good about their bodies.
Kindling is made to be read by adults and shared with children. In our fashion shoots, we’re making DIY hi-vis outfits and customizing crutches, wheelchairs and casts.
