The three essential ingredients of childhood, as it is meant to be, are toys, music, and play. That is why we only write about play and review toys.
Broader Minded's mission is to encourage "a brighter approach to play" in order to stimulate curiosity and creativity in your child.
Broader Minded provides a trusted resource for parents who want to create quality memories and lasting childhood memories.
We believe in simplicity, fun, and we don't consider ourselves technophobes. Broader Minded loves technology and media. We believe technology should be balanced with imaginative role play and unstructured play.
Children today spend too much time on screens and not enough time outdoors.
We can ensure that our children have happy memories as well as bright futures if we find the right balance.

Who Broader Minded Is For

It can be hectic and full of surprises. There are many great ideas for creating the perfect childhood for your children, but sometimes life gets in the way. You realize that your children are being shaped and influenced by technological and cultural forces.
Broader Minded is for parents who are playful and intentional but find it difficult to make their children experience the simple joys that childhood has to offer.
We are run by like-minded parents and can be accessed quickly. We have everything you need, including ideas, rules, and suggestions for great toys, both classic and modern.

Why You Should Trust Us

Broader Minded is run for parents by parents.
We only write about things that are important to our children. It is only posted if it can be of benefit to other families.
We spend as much time researching, networking, and discussing topics before we even start writing reviews. All this happens before we ever put pen to paper. 
Should you trust us? You will ultimately decide. Please take a look at a few articles of Us about some toys and guides. We are a friendly bunch, and we hope you will find that we "click" with your parenting style. We'd love to have you as a regular visitor.

About The Team

Our team is made up of playful parents who were not ready to be adults. Broader Minded gives them the opportunity to experience the joys and wonders of childhood again through a healthy outlet. They are also a lively and thoughtful group who are dedicated to today's children's happiness and well-being.

How We Choose the Best Toys and Gifts

We take the possibility that you will part with your hard-earned money when we make a recommendation. This is more important than any junk product for your family. We feel it is our responsibility to make sure that any product we recommend is as safe as possible.

We have not tested the products or bought them. This has been tried, but we prefer to speak to our parents and conduct extensive research on customer feedback.

Our experience shows that buying and testing products are useful, but it does not tell the whole story. It takes at least three weeks to put a toy through its paces. This is impossible to do. We don't have to.

Instead, we reach out to families who have purchased the product and tried it. We are able to establish a reliable and accurate picture of the quality of toys and products based on phone conversations, subreddits, and parenting forums chats, as well as scouring the internet for customer feedback using a fine tooth-comb. We share this information with you.
