Core Values

Trust. Trust is very important to us and that’s where we’re different from most sites. Most toy sites are actually just promoting products simply to make money off of you but at Pigtail Pals we pledge to never be influenced by any manufacturers in any way in the forming our opinions of the products we write about.

Independence. We include only our independent opinion on the products included in our list and promise never to be swayed by retailers who ask us to promote the products they sell.

Accuracy. Accuracy is paramount and we’re committed to providing the highest possible transparency and clarity in our buying guides. Nobody wants to read a guide and purchase a toy only to find out the toys comes with a few little surprises. We ensure accuracy through a rigorous editorial process that involves in verifying factual information from the manufacturer, what real users are saying about said products along with our own opinion.

Up-to-date. Having our content frequently updated to include the most accurate information is another thing we take seriously. All of our guides are updated on a bi-annual basis, often more frequently so you can be sure you’re reading the most up to date information on the top toys for your boy or girl.
