Kidsumers is a Canadian based blog that focuses on family friendly products, reviews, trips, giveaways and discussions. I work with a variety of PR agencies from around Canada and the US, and I am always happy to welcome newcomers to the list! In 2012, I will be adding new reviewers to my team to accommodate requests for US based promotions, and to provide coverage of infant products that many of my readers are interested in.
Here are a few basic things you need to know about Kidsumers…
ABOUT PRODUCT REVIEWS:
- I do not review sample sizes, previously used items or loaner items for the following reasons: I can’t properly test a sample size product; and I have four children who may or may not destroy your product while it is in my home
- Review items must be a minimum value of $30, with some exceptions.
- Reviews will be posted on my blog within 4 weeks of me receiving the product. The link will be sent to you when the review is posted. If you have a tight deadline, tell me in advance and I will see if I can accommodate it.
- As indicated already, I do not do loaners, so your product will not be returned to you.
- If we agree to a product review, and I am sent a different product than agreed to, I reserve the right to NOT review the product. If I choose to write the review, it may reflect the difference in product from what was requested.
- Products sent to me without my consent may or may not be reviewed.
- I will run a giveaway without a review for a fee, with very few exceptions. If your giveaway is exceptional and you believe it would benefit us both for me to run it without a fee, tell me why. I’m open to hearing about it!
- I do not ship giveaway prizes. If you send me the giveaway prize, it will be mine to donate or keep.
- I prefer my giveaways to be open to Canada and the US, but I do run giveaways that are limited to the US or Canada.
- You can request facebook and twitter follows as additional entries for your giveaway.
- I am willing to drive up to 6 hours for a minimum of a two night stay; or 3 hours for a 1 night stay.
- I prefer travel reviews that are for families or couples. I will do individual travel reviews in some circumstances.
- Details can be arranged for each individual trip, but my standard is one post prior to the trip and three posts following the trip, with tweets before, during and after.
