Are you a family-friendly business interested in reaching our followers?

PlaygroundParkbench is the web destination for parents seeking family-friendly entertainment, events, activities, birthday venues, gift ideas and more!

Sponsor a post featuring your business and all it has to offer. Written by a mother with 3 kids 4 and under for fellow parents. Extend your reach across our social network of over 6,000 followers on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter, and get parents planning their next play date with your product or party at your business!  Local businesses can be featured in a local round-up or review, or add your next storytime, craft lesson, free play or event to our Events page for FREE.


Sponsored Posts

Each week, I post on topics ranging from parenting or household tips, financially savvy advice for the Household CEO, At-Home Activities to keep children busy in and around the home, reviews of local activities and business, and Guru Favorites: our favorite people, places, books, and things that keep our household humming!

Most of our posts are not sponsored.  We are highly selective of our post sponsors, and sponsored posts must fit topics of interest to us and our audience.  We only accept sponsored posts from businesses we have tried and/or visited ourselves, and that we can genuinely speak of highly.  Sponsored posts are always disclaimed as such.  Compensation for sponsored posts may take many forms ranging from receipt of promotional goods for personal consumption, promotional goods for distribution to site followers, or direct payment.  Sponsored posts will be promoted across the PGPB network, including Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter.

If you are interested in sponsoring a post , please email us with the name of your business or event and basic description.  Our media kit is available upon request.
