PR & Reviews

We currently accept family and child based review products or PR opportunities for children aged 2-15. I am happy to receive paid link proposals and advertisement enquiries so long as they are family friendly. (I do not run bingo, casino or credit articles on this site).

If you wish to send us a product which you would like us to review, they can be sent to

Merry Raymond (Patch of Puddles)
C/o MerrilyToys and Crafts Ltd
28-29 Maxwell Rd

I cannot guarantee to review all unsolicited items so please contact me by email first if possible.

In regards to review opportunities and sponsored posts, please read the following fully:

  1. I am always interested in review opportunities and PR days if they are family focused. I no longer review items for babies or under 2’s.
  2. I do not publish infographics or press releases without payment on this blog.
  3. I do accept sponsored posts HOWEVER I do disclose the relationship in full and I do not fudge that with misleading phrases. If you contact me via this form, you do so with this express understanding.

I accept a wider range of opportunities of paid posts and review products, including running competitions, on my other blog MerrilyMe, which shares all the same social media sharing channels as this one.

Accolades for Patch of Puddles and Merry Raymond.
