Hi. I finally have my hand on some copies of my just released kid's game Te Kuiti and want to send some copies out for review. Any suggestions on a good site to contact that reviews children's games? How do you find out about new kid's games?

Thanks

There's the parents-choice.org awards. Plus a few family boardgame reviewers on the geek.

is one I read for a parent's perspective, specifically: child, parent, and gamer, + skills.

I run a blog that does sorta-reviews based on plays with my now-8-year-old daughter, but our traffic is really low, so it won't be worth sending us a review copy. trainingagamer.wordpress.com

On a (hopefully) more helpful basis, have you tried contacting GeekDad? They do regular board game reviews from a parent's perspective.

FatherGeek could be useful - they'll sometimes review kid/family games. I don't know their availability of late, but I usually find their reviews helpful as they span audiences.

Actually you could check reviews on BGG of a popular kids game and go from there.

If you have an iPhone or iPad there are many games which are good for kids. Some of the games I installed for my 5 year old daughter are
Cut the rope, Knight Withstand and puzzles.
Actually there are many games to choose there in iTunes.
