The other day, my 10 year old son asked me this very question –
“Dad, with all the stuff on Google, I can’t find any real and honest toys reviews. Am I looking in the wrong place?”
As you can see, I have a very wise son. He is basically right, it is very hard to find real world and honest toy reviews. The task was made harder by the fact that he was looking for Toy Reviews for 2013 and it was still 2012. But come on, he is only 10!
Where Are The Honest Toy Reviews?
It turns out that most sites create a toy review in this way…
- Read a Press Release on a New Toy
- Write an Intro Paragraph about the New Toy
- Close with How Fun the New Toy Is
Yep, you read that right – countless toy reviews are based on press releases. In fact, many writers never touch the toys they are reviewing.
How Do You Know if They Really Reviewed the Toys?
Guess what my son figured out – videos don’t lie! He found this DadDoesBlog Toy Review Channel and it has videos of the writers playing with the toys. Boom – instant proof that they actually played with the toys. We watched countless videos from DadDoes.Com and they were great. My son is hooked and so am I.
