The response to our call for applications for our very first Parent Advisory Board was amazing! We had so many truly brilliant parent bloggers that applied (THANK YOU to each and every one of you!). The task of selecting just four was not an easy one- and we are seriously considering adding additional members in the near future.

But, after 2 wks of sifting through 200 applications and Pinterest boards, we are excited to tell you that our search for our first 4 members is officially complete!

Each board member has children of a various ages that they shop for and play with– one them is even a Grandma! We are confident that together these Moms will provide a keen insight into how parents today define “cool toys”.

Lead by Corine of, our parent advisory members will be contributing to our site every Wednesday giving you their thoughts and feedback on all things play.

The Toy Insider Parent Advisory Board will be meeting in the upcoming weeks to check out some of the toys we’ve begun checking out for our Spring List and voting on their favorites. We could not be more thrilled to meet with them and see which toys they pick as their favorites!

Now without further adue,
Meet our very first Toy Insider Parent Advisory Board–
