I may make a small commission when you click on an external link and/or purchase a product that is featured on the Little Playful Learners blog.
I only promote products and websites that I trust – either through personal experience or through online research. For example, if I find a product on Amazon that looks like it would be a great recommendation but I’ve never used it before, I will always:
- Look into the manufacturer – are they a reputable company? If they sell baby products, do they use non-toxic materials?
- Read reviews – what are other people saying about the product? Has anybody had any safety issues?
- Check to see if I can find the product on other trustworthy websites (if it’s only listed on Amazon and can’t be found anywhere else, I might be leery of it)
I am currently an affiliate of the following merchants:
As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. I have been a loyal Amazon customer for many years – I love that you can literally find anything you need, and when you’re an Amazon Prime member, it comes super fast with free shipping.
HearthSong (via Rakuten & Skimlinks)
I am a huge fan of the HearthSong website and the products they sell. They have unique, high-quality toys that I’ve never seen anywhere else. Plus, their products promote learning and active play.
Melissa & Doug (via Rakuten & Skimlinks)
As a parent, I’ve had lots of experience with Melissa & Doug products. I always knew I could count on their toys, puzzles, and games being very sturdy and well-made, so I’ll never hesitate to recommend their products to others.
Magic Cabin (via Rakuten)
As stated on their website, “We at Magic Cabin are inspired by the simple delights of childhood and good-old-fashioned imaginative play. We specialize in providing a variety of open-ended, nature-inspired toys and crafts that nurture children’s innate sense of wonder and curiosity.” How can you not want to support a company like that?
Fat Brain Toys (via Skimlinks)
I’ve ordered from Fat Brain Toys a few times and have always been so impressed with what I’ve received! Their whole focus is on learning and development, so that’s a huge plus for me. And as far as I’ve seen, all the brands they sell are trustworthy.
In addition to these trusted merchants, I may also recommend high-quality products from other websites using Skimlinks. However, they will always meet the requirements listed above.
