I just don't get it

Zoobooks has been around since 1980, and hasn't had a new issue since 1991
I've seen commercials for it as long as I've been alive, and they are exactly the same
If you subscribe for more than a few years, you get the same issues in a cycle

How on earth have they stayed in business this long?

    I get you, AM, but when your target audience is almost certainly going to stop following the material before the books have much time to run out, it makes sense to just keep reprinting the same stuff.
