It is time to have some fun. Yes, there are many serious issues that Dads face each day – which is exactly why we now need to spend some time playing with our kids and their toys!
Help Us Review the Top 16 Holiday Toys
Time To Play Magazine has released their “Most Wanted List 2010″ - the top holiday toys for 2010! We did a write up on the Top Holiday Toys here and you can also view the full list from Time To Play Magazine. In all there are 16 cool toys on the list and we have decided to review them all – and we want your help!
Dad Does Things Differently – Real World Reviews
As we state all over the site, here at Dad Does we do things differently! We are not going to the toy manufacturers PR department and asking for their toys to review, that would be to easy. Instead, we are using good old, hard earned cash to buy all the toys – just like every other regular Mom and Dad would do. This means we owe nothing to the toy companies and can write completely honest and unbiased reviews.
We Need Your Help and We Will Pay You in Toys!
We are looking for some real Dads, Moms and kids to try out these toys and write (or video) a short review that we can post on our site. We will send you the toy, it is yours to keep – we just ask that you and your kids play with it and let us know what you think.
We are not being paid or sponsored by anyone to do this, we really just want some honest, fun opinions on the hot holiday toys.
How to Get In On The Toy Fun!
We are going to try to keep this as simple and as easy as possible. So here are the steps…
- Join Us – takes about 10 seconds. Make sure to check the box “I am Interested in Receiving A Hot Holiday Toy to Review” This just allows us to email you and discuss what toy you want to review.
- Click Here to Review the List of Most Wanted Holiday Toys (or look at the Toy Chart Below).
- Maybe leave a comment below, let us know which toy you would like to review and the age and sex of your kids.
This is our first time doing this, so we are really trying to keep it simple and fun. We will contact anyone who is interested with more info via email.
Do I Need to Re-Tweet, Follow You, Sell You My First Born, Etc to Get a Toy?
No, we are not going to make you jump through a bunch of hoops to get the toys. All we ask is that if we do send you a toy you do a honest review of how your kids liked it. The review could be written or a video of them playing with the toys. You also don’t need to be an expert writer, we want to know if real Dads, Moms and kids enjoy the toys – that is it!
Now, if you are feeling generous, you can always follow us on Twitter – @DanDadDoes . You can also use the buttons below to tweet or like or share this post with friends on FaceBook – but that is up to you.
Will Everyone Get A Toy?
As much as we love being Santa Claus, it is possible that not everyone who signs up will get a toy. The good news is that since we are blowing all our money on buying the toys, we have no money left to advertise our site. This means, if you found this page, your odds of getting a toy just went up!
Join Us and Let’s Have Some Fun!
We love toys, Dads love toys and of course kids love toys. Let’s get these 16 hot toys, test them out and let everyone else know if they are hits or flops with our kids. Join Us – this is going to be fun!
