We take great pride in our distribution which has been developed over the last 14 years.

We actively seek out popular places where parents and carers regularly visit.

With more than 280 carefully targeted distribution points Smalltalk reaches an estimated 24,000 discerning parents of 0 to 11 year olds throughout Leeds and Yorkshire


Unrivalled high quality production and authoritative, interesting and useful editorial content ensures maximum retention exposing your business for at least two full months.

We find that readers tend to pick up Smalltalk and keep it for some time. We also find that the magazine will be visible and available for considerably longer that the two months which it covers.

“In a Leeds hospital we found a magazine more than three years old on a coffee table in the waiting room of a children’s department still being read!”

Publication Dates

Printed every two months prior to all UK major school holidays. This gives businesses the opportunity to publicise their business to parents when they are most actively looking for things to do with their children in the holidays.
