What to do
Review places you go with your kids
Share reviews and tips about the places you go with your kids to help other parents who visit those places. Every outing with your kids is an accomplishment and we want to hear about it on PlayDoKids.

We are planning to bring in a Forum for parents to engage in lively discussions very soon. If you see a particularly great piece of advice, don’t forget to give it a “Like”! (Coming Soon)
Be nice, be respectful
You won’t always agree with what other users say on PlayDoKids. It’s ok to disagree but please do so respectfully. Parenting is challenging and it takes a village.
Flag unhelpful or inappropriate posts
If you see something inappropriate on PlayDoKids, don’t reply to it — let us know via the “Report This Post” feature. Our admins will be notified and we will review it immediately.
What not to do
Don’t post information you know to be incorrect
PlayDoKids is all about parents helping parents. We rely on our users to collect information about the places they visit and give advice to other parents. Please only post information you know to be correct based on your own experience.
Don’t publish people’s private information without their permission
Do not publish private information about other people without their permission. This includes personally identifiable information about children without the permission of the child’s parent.
Don’t spam or post irrelevant information
We want the site to be useful to parents. Don’t post information that is not relevant or helpful to other parents. For example, PlayDoKids isn’t the place for rants about a business’s employment practices or political ideologies.
Don’t post promotional material
If you would like to advertise your website, business, or services, please reach out to us at [email protected]
Don’t post hate speech
Hate speech has no place on PlayDoKids. Don’t post hateful stories or use hateful language in your bio or use a hateful image as your avatar. We will remove it and will terminate your account. Hate speech includes content that directly attacks people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender, gender identity or serious disabilities or diseases.
All reviews are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but in general the following reviews are not allowed and will be removed:
- Reviews written by people with a clear conflict of interest. This includes reviews written by any current or former employee of the business, as well as reviews by employees of competitive businesses.
- Reviews that describe criminal activity. PlayDoKids is not a replacement for following the proper reporting channels.
- Reviews that refer to other review sites such as Four Square, Just Dial or any other review websites or which are copied word-for-word from those sites.
- Reviews that are irrelevant to the experience of visiting a particular place with your children.
- Fake reviews or reviews that the author was paid to write.
What should I do if I see a review that looks fake?
We take content integrity very seriously at PlayDoKids. If you see fake reviews or brigading (many users posting similar reviews at the same time), please report them to us immediately at [email protected] You can also report reviews by choosing “Report” at the bottom of a review.
Can providers remove bad reviews from their page?
No. There is no way for businesses to do this as it would compromise the integrity of our content. However, businesses may report reviews that they suspect to be fake or abusive by contacting [email protected]
