FamilyFun is a family magazine published 8 times annually by Meredith Corporation.[2]

History and profile[edit]

Launched in 1991[3] by Jake Winebaum,[2] FamilyFun is written for parents with children aged 3 to 12, and focuses on family cooking, vacations, parties, holidays, crafts, and learning. The magazine was purchased by Disney Publishing Worldwide in 1992 and Meredith acquired FamilyFun from Disney in 2012.[4] Disney Interactive relaunched its FamilyFun.go.com site as Spoonful.com in 2012. FamilyFun is now part of the Parents.com network.

The headquarters of the magazine was in Des Moines, Iowa, until late May 2015 when it moved to New York City.[2] In August 2015 Elizabeth Anne Shaw became the editor-in-chief of FamilyFun.[5]
