Kazoo celebrates girls, ages 5 to 12, for being strong, smart, fierce and true to themselves.
We pack every 64-page, ad-free issue with science, art, comics, games, crafts, recipes, stories—and inspiration. There's no other magazine like Kazoo.
Representation matters, so we develop all of our features with legendary women role models, including scientists, artists, athletes, writers, chefs, leaders and more.
Our experts include:
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Shonda Rhimes, Jane Goodall, Misty Copeland, Dolores Huerta, Stacey Abrams,
Margaret Atwood, Jacqueline Woodson, Ani DiFranco, Elizabeth Warren and more!
Girls deserve to be the heroes of their own bedtime stories, so in every issue, we run original fiction, written by a major author and featuring a fierce girl protagonist.
Meet some of our contributors:
Newbery Medal winners Erin Entrada Kelly and Meg Medina; 5x Pulitzer nominee Joyce Carol Oates; National Book Award finalists Angela Flournoy and Carmen Maria Machado; and bestsellers Kimberly Brubaker Bradley and Meg Wolitzer.
History comes alive in every issue with a true-tale comic about a woman who changed the world, drawn by today’s most acclaimed women and non-binary artists.
Meet some of our comic artists:
Eisner-winners Rosemary Valero-O'Connell, Alitha E. Martinez, Jen Wang and Emil Ferris; New York Times bestseller Lucy Knisley; GLAAD Media Award winner Kat Leyh; and more.
Kazoo launched in 2016, after running what was the highest-funded journalism campaign in Kickstarter's history. Since then, we’ve won three consecutive Parents’ Choice Gold Awards and in 2019, we won the National Magazine Award for General Excellence. That’s a pretty big deal!
Kazoo is based in Brooklyn, New York and prints in Burlington, Vermont on recycled paper. We’re proud supporters of Brooklyn Book Bodega and First Books, which provide books and magazines to kids in underserved communities, and we've been part of the Arbor Day Foundation’s Time for Trees initiative, which aims to plant 100 million trees by 2022.
Erin Bried is the founder and editor of Kazoo and the mother of two daughters (a.k.a. Kazoo’s Tiny Editor and Teeny Editor). She’s also the editor of Kazoo’s graphic collection, Noisemakers: 25 Women who Raised their Voices and Changed the World (Knopf), and the author of three books, including How to Sew a Button. Named one of Family Circle’s “20 Most Influential Moms,” she’s appeared on The Today Show, The Katie Couric Show, NPR’s Weekend Edition and in magazines and newspapers nationwide.
Kazoo is an award-winning, ad-free, indie magazine for girls, 5 to 12, that celebrates them for being strong, smart, fierce and true to themselves. It's published quarterly in Brooklyn, New York and is sold all around the world.
