We don’t charge you, our readers, a fee for the information provided on this website. However, we are running a family business. To keep the lights on, we partner with companies who pay us a small referral fee when you use the links below and make a purchase on their websites. However, we’re really, really picky! We only partner with companies that we know well: either we personally know the owners or we personally use their products on a regular basis. So feel good about working with them and even better about supporting KidTripster!
