About Us

Kidsgearguide was founded in 2014 by a small group of moms and dads passionate about child development through play. Intending to create a hub of useful information about kids’ gear, they came together, and our site was born!

At Kidsgearguide, we review various kids’ gear and compile lists of the best products currently on the market. We aim to make things easier for you when finding the best product. To do this, we combine expert analysis, product comparison, and industry data to compile our list of the best.  We do all the research, so you don’t have to!

Added to this, we also focus on specific products to review. These reviews range from currently trending products to cool, unheard-of designer tech.

Finally, we know that parenting is a constant learning experience, and we’re here to support you every step of the way. That’s why we occasionally feature interesting and fun guide articles that provide additional hints and tips to help you on your parenting adventure. From creative playtime ideas to discussions on child development, we constantly seek ways to answer our readers’ questions with comprehensive and helpful guides. Our goal is to provide valuable insights and information to make your parenting journey more enjoyable and fulfilling. So, watch for our guide articles, and let us help you navigate the joys and challenges of parenthood!

How We Choose Products

When we curate our top lists of kids’ products, we take a comprehensive approach to give you the most thorough reviews possible. We consider expert analysis of the technical aspects, product comparisons, industry data, consumer opinions, and experiences to compile our lists of the best. Our reviews feature currently trending products, appear on our best lists, or come from small boutique brands that are not widely known but create amazing toys and gadgets that we believe you should know about! Our goal is to provide you with reliable and comprehensive information so you can make the best decisions for your child’s playtime and development.

Honest and Genuine Reviews

We understand many of you may be concerned about our product reviews’ integrity. We want to assure you that we do not accept payment in exchange for publishing good reviews of certain products. While we allow brands to send us their products for review, we do not tailor our reviews to suit any particular brand or ask for compensation in return.

Honest feedback is crucial for brands to improve their products, and we take pride in providing unbiased opinions. We believe that honest and reliable reviews benefit everyone, especially the consumer. So, you can trust that our opinions, views, and ratings are always our own.

But How Do We Make Our Money Then?

As much as we love bringing you the latest and greatest in kids’ toys and gadgets, there are certain costs involved in running our website. To sustain ourselves, we participate in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. This non-obtrusive advertising program enables us to earn a commission by linking to products on Amazon.com.

When we review a product, we’ll include a button that links directly to its Amazon.com listing. We receive a small commission if you purchase the product through that link. These buttons are marked with Amazon’s distinctive orange color and logo.

By purchasing products through our affiliate links, you can support our website and help us continue to provide useful content without resorting to spammy ads. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved! So, if you find our reviews helpful and informative, we encourage you to support us using our Amazon affiliate links.

Why Should You Trust Us?

So, let’s get down to it. Here are the top three reasons why you can trust us:

  • We’re as honest as they come! Our reviews are always unbiased and straight from the heart. You won’t find any sugarcoated feedback here, and the brands we feature have zero say in what we publish. It doesn’t matter if we’re raving about a product or pointing out its flaws – we tell it like it is!
  • We are a team of experienced and knowledgeable writers and content creators passionate about children’s toys, child development, and technology. Our team includes parents with first-hand experience and educators dedicated to bringing you the best information and insights on these topics.
  • We’re an open book when it comes to our website’s income. No shady business here! We make money through Amazon Affiliates and are not afraid to show it. Our affiliate buttons are marked with Amazon’s distinct orange color and logo so that you can spot them from a mile away. Transparency is the name of the game!

Who Are We?

Our writers and content creators deeply understand children’s developmental stages and needs, and they use this knowledge to create engaging and informative content tailored to parents’ needs. They are committed to staying up-to-date with the latest research and trends in child development and playtime, and they work hard to provide you with accurate and reliable information.
