About the BAZOOF! Team
BAZOOF! magazine launched as ZAMOOF! in January 2007 after a pool of ideas swirled around then landed on some pages. The concept was to develop a magazine that was fun, entertaining, sparked creativity, and educate kids on the black and white values all parents agree on. By the end of 2014, ZAMOOF! began to broaden its mission of character development adding editorials on nutrition, fitness, positive self image and other healthy-lifestyle topics. Fall 2015, the title was changed to BAZOOF! to crawl a little closer up the alphabet.
