Our Review Policy & Meet the New Age Mama Review Team


CONTACT LAURA DELUCA at NEWAGEMAMABLOG@COMCAST.NET with all inquiries.


Our Review Policy

Our families would love to offer reviews and/or giveaways for any products for house and home, toys, games, clothing, baby products, movies, and more.  Its great to find  exciting new products and share them with our readers. Email us about your product and we will reply if we are interested. Please note we get over 5000 emails a day so not every email will receive a reply - only those we are interested in.

If your product is accepted, we ask for one month (30 days) from receipt of the product to post reviews. If there are special circumstances where you need the review posted sooner, please let us know in your pitch letter and we will try to accommodate you. A negotiated review post date sooner than the above-mentioned 30 days must be discussed with and approved by us PRIOR to sending the product.

We must receive a full size product or package in order to write a review. We will not review based on small one-time use samples because without a full testing supply we can not write an honest review. Please note that acceptance of a product does not guarantee a positive review. Also we do not return products that are sent for review. Anything you send to us is ours to keep. No exceptions.

For book reviews we require 90 days from receipt to post the review to allow for reading time. Children's picture books we ask for 30 days from receipt. We only accept print copies. No eBooks please.

For movies/DVD reviews we must receive a physical screener or copy of the DVD. We do not accept digital downloads.


Giveaway Guidelines

Giveaways can be included with any blog review, but this is optional.   All giveaway prizes must be shipped directly to the winner. Due to the liability risk involved, the New Age Mama staff will not ship anything to winners. Anything sent to us we will assume is for review purposes.

MEET THE REVIEW TEAM

In September of 2010, New Age Mama was created by a very bored expecting mother who was on bed rest and desperately needed something to do. Five years later, it has grown into something I never imagined.  Recently, New Age Mama was ranked as one of the Top 50 Product Review Blogs in the USA on Cision, which was a pleasant and unexpected honor. Since then, I have literally been drowning in pitches.With four kids and my writing career taking off, I just don't have time to keep up with all the offers I receive, but I hate to have my awesome readers miss out on any of the great products and especially the giveaways out there! So, I have invited eight of my most trusted virtual friends to join the New Age Mama team to assist with reviews.  Ironically, I started out reviewing some of their products from their Etsy shops, Greenchild Creations, Sacred Secrets and The Sisters Elemental, but over the years, we have become really great friends. So without further ado, allow me to introduce the New Age Mama review Team.
