DÓLITÁ is an illustrated playful-pedagogical magazine, which aims to stimulate children from 3 to 6 years old. In each issue you will find stories, games, drawings and lots of laughs!

The beginning

I became mum 4 years ago, and at some point, I started creating educational activities for my pre-school age son. It came in very handy during confinements! I remembered some games that used to excite me when I was little, I updated them, and it was a success. The magazine DÓLITÁ was born from that desire, to offer all curious and playful children simple and appealing game tools that help to strengthen their potential at home. It is a playful magazine that wants to teach and have fun, while respecting the intelligence and personality of each of its young readers (3-6 years old).

Three educational pillars

In order for the child to be an integral part of their own education, we have divided the magazine into three main points: LISTENING - TALKING - PLAYING. We want to awaken the senses and encourage children to be resourceful and find solutions using all the tools at their disposal: imagination, creativity and fun. DÓLITÁ will help to develop a love for reading, an argumentative and creative spirit, concentration, self-esteem, analysis and reflection skills. And children's emotional intelligence.

Adapted environment

Each magazine will be special and will deal with a topic that is simple and accessible to children. We want to treat all aspects of their lives: we'll talk about the planet, colors, friendly animals and much more. To better serve the demands of our target audience, the 24-page magazine will be large (A4). And the role will be reinforced, of course. We will also have the collaboration of different illustrators in each issue, so that the magazine is always appealing and challenging.

Each number of the magazine will be special and will deal with a topic that is simple and accessible to children. We want to cover all aspects of their lives: we will talk about the planet, colours, friendly animals and much more. To better serve the demands of our target audience, the size of 24-page magazine will be large (A4). And the paper, of course, will be resistant. On each issue, we will have guest illustrators making the magazine always appealing and challenging.

    DÓLITÁ: Juntos conseguimos!

    ATINGIMOS o nosso objetivo de 2860€, obrigada a todos os que contribuíram!

    Esta angariação vai permitir que a revista DÓLITÁ nasça. Com o vosso apoio o número 1, sobre o tema da amizade, será brevemente impresso e enviado para as vossas casas. Nos próximos dias também iremos começar a preparar as outras recompensas para os nossos doadores, Tote Bags e posters. Que empolgante! Mas a aventura não acaba aqui, pois aguardamos com expectativa a possibilidade de ouvir o vosso feedback quando tiverem a DÓLITÁ em mãos, para melhorar, claro, de forma a que a DÓLITÁ seja sempre amiga dos vossos pequenos.

    Ainda faltam 16 dias para terminar esta campanha. Pedimos à todos mais uma ajuda na divulgação do projecto, partilhando o seguinte link:

    https://ppl.pt/dolita

    Vejam também o artigo no jornal Público:

    https://www.publico.pt/2022/01/12/impar/noticia/nascer-dolita-revista-lu...

    E leiam outro, publicado na revista Time Out:

    https://www.timeout.pt/lisboa/pt/noticias/um-segredo-colorido-vem-ai-uma...

    Dado o vosso interesse e apoio, propomos agora ultrapassar o objectivo inicial. Este impulso adicional permitirá a criação de um website que irá complementar o projecto, e funcionará como loja online. Relembro que a DÓLITÁ estará também disponível em livrarias independentes espalhadas pelo país, cuja lista será divulgada em breve.

    Foram vocês que criaram esta revista para os pré-escolares de Portugal! Passem a palavra, são três sílabas apenas, DÓLITÁ.

    Obrigada :)

    Até breve,

    Mariana, fundadora da DÓLITÁ
