My Best Friends Magazine is an educational bimonthly magazine originally created and published in Brazil by Casa Publicadora Brasileira titled as Nosso Amiguinho, which literally means "Our Little Friend".[1]

The magazine was created in December, 1952, as a "Special Edition for Advertising", having its first edition officially released few months later, on July, 1953. The editor was Miguel J. Malty, and collaborators were D. Christman e R. E. Adams.[2]

Early editions were monochromatic, changing the color from month to month. Colors were added in the long run. In 1972, characters that were called "Our Little Friend's Team" were created by the editor Ivan Schimidt and drew by the Uruguayan designer Heber Pintos.[3] In 1986, the magazine started being published and distributed in Portugal.

Currently, besides the magazine, there are several products commercialized in Brazil under the "My Best Friend" brand, like books, notepads, backpacks, Bibles, CDs and DVDs were released.

In North America, the magazine is being published by Review and Herald, a Seventh-day Adventist publishing house; the English version is named "My Best Friends Magazine". It has been distributed by Autumn House Publishing Co., since May, 2010.[4]
