This is a relatively rare magazine released by the founder of MECC. Each issue contains puzzles and games for children, as well as two pieces of carefully chosen commercial educational software. These are the full games, not crippled demos, and the manuals appear to be identical to the normal commercial packages as well. Each issue includes a colorful poster for one of the games as well that did not come with the original game. One interesting thing to note is that the Troll's Tale map is slightly different from the boxed game - instead of stickers it has pieces to cut out and use, and this version was only distrubuted in this magazine (as evidenced by The Learning Advantage written in the corner). I have not been able to find any information on this magazine and have no idea how many issues were released. This, however, appears to be the first issue, and at least three were produced.
