Our favorite companies include start-ups, family owned businesses, those involved with charity work and with persons of special needs. At this time we are particularly interested in brands that improve the life of children affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental disabilities.

Due to the volume of inquiries I receive, I cannot respond to all emails. If I’m interested in reviewing your product or service, you will receive an email with further details.

We do not participate in earned media campaigns that have been solicited.

Product Reviews
Feel free to contact us to see if your product or company would be a good fit and to send samples of your product. In most cases, product of value must be a minimum of $150.00. Products under $150.00 may be featured in social only posts, round ups etc.

Discounts and coupons are not considered compensation for reviews. We can also not review a product from photos, please do not ask us to.

If we encounter a problem or issue with your sample we will let you know privately. Unless other arrangements have been made, all products sent for review are kept by the owners of and not returnable.  Negative reviews are not posted. A majority of our review products are donated to the local school district or organizations that work with the special needs community. 

Please note that unless previously discussed, please allow an average 6-8 weeks for all reviews AFTER receipt of the product. Some reviews may take longer,especially if the product is used outdoors and we need to take photos (we deal with unpredictable weather year round!) One link will be provided to the sponsors website. We may include affiliate links or ads as we see fit.

Giveaways are great way to generate excitement about your company or product.  We offer integration of social media outlets such as promotion of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other areas into your giveaways.

Typically all giveaways are accompanied by a sponsored post due to the effectiveness of this combination.  However if you would prefer to do a giveaway only, we can provide a company or product overview in lieu of a review.  Please contact us for our fees for our Giveaway only services.

All prizes in sponsored giveaways should a new product and  be sent directly to the winner within 30 days. Unless other arrangements have been agreed upon, we do not ship prizes to winners. The Maven is not responsible for lost or misdirected prizes to winners.
