MadeForMums journalists review all things parenting, from buggies and car seats to newborn clothing and pregnancy gear, to help parents make confident choices.
We also offer parents the chance to test products at home for free. As mums and dads who use parenting products every day, we want to hear your opinions on what the best items are really like to use.
*Please note: we are now resuming our product-testing after a coronavirus-enforced break. Products for testing will now be sent direct from manufacturers or their PR firms, rather than from the MadeForMums office, and will include smaller items (such as skincare products) as well as bigger ones. Please bear with us while we work through the backlog; we will be prioritising testers who’ve been waiting the longest.
We’ll have a variety of products ranging in value to review every month, which may include pushchairs, baby monitors, nappies, bottles, cribs, soothers and a whole host of other fantastic products.
If you’re selected to test a product, you’ll be asked to give it a thorough test at home and provide your comments and photos – then it’s yours to keep!
We’ll then use your feedback to help create some our top parenting product round-ups.
Products available for home testing include:
Quinny VNC pushchair (£579)
Owli Sleeping Guru Swaddle/Sleeping Bag (£29)
Angelcare AC327 Baby Movement Monitor With Video and Sound (£199.99)
BabyMoov turbo pure steriliser (£79.99)
Izmi baby wrap (£50)
How to have the chance to be a MadeForMums product tester
Each month we choose a number of families to be product testers. For a chance to be one of the home testers, you need to:
- Post at least one top quality review of one of the products we’ve tested in our reviews section for that month
Here’s what you need to do…
- Register as a member of MadeForMums – click here to sign up with your email. When you sign up please remember to enter the date of birth of your child or due date if you’re pregnant, as this will help us to match you to products. Please note the Home Testers Panel is open to UK residents only.
- Once you’re signed in as a member, you need to write at least 1 high quality review on any of our existing reviews on the website. This includes products such as pushchairs, car seats or nappies.
- Have a browse through our Reviews section to see if you can spot a product you’ve used or pop the name of a product into our search to see if we’ve done a review.
- Once you’ve found the product you’d like to review on our website, scroll to the bottom of the review page where you’ll see a button that says ‘write a review’. Click here to leave your star rating and your comments about the product.
- Remember – your review doesn’t need to be long (100-150 words is perfect) but it’s important it shows your experience and opinions. What’s this product like to use – what do you like/dislike, would you recommend it to your friends?
- Please note we cannot guarantee you will be chosen to receive test products – but the more useful reviews you post, the more likely you are to be selected as one of our parent testers! The best reviewers each month will be contacted by MadeForMums via email and invited to join the Home Testers Panel. If you have any queries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you took part in last month’s panel you’ll need to leave a new review again this month. Happy reviewing!
