work with us

(cool) progeny is dedicated to connecting Charm City metro area families with fantastic resources, products, businesses and events. Here's how we can help you:

Product Reviews
Part of our mission? To find the creme de la creme kid and family friendly products and services. That said, we’re picky about the products we share with our readers. If you’d like your product to be considered for review, all you need to do is send it to us:

Want to discuss ahead of time? Feel free to call us at 443-280-9563.

We’ll evaluate it and if it fits with our content, would be happy to let our readers know!

Baltimore Metro Area Family Friendly Events
We are always delighted to help promote Charm City-area events that are family friendly. All you need to do to be listed on our calendar (and considered for our “what’s up for the weekend” posts) is to fill out our online form. You’ll notice that there is a box to check if you’d like us to cover the event. We'd love to -- and if we can't, we'll find a guest family to attend your program and provide a post about their experience. The catch? If there is a fee associated with attending your event (i.e. you need a ticket), we ask that you waive it for our correspondents.

Our local event giveaways are our most popular - and a great way to spread the word about your activity! We happily coordinate ticket giveaways on our blog at no charge. Please contact us via email or phone at 443-280-9563 to arrange one for your next event.

We happily promote all local events through ticket giveaways, but are selective in our product giveaways. Please note that there is a nominal coordination fee for product giveaways, and the sponsoring business or organization is responsible for all postage costs. Contact us via email or phone at 443-280-9563 for details.

Play Dates
Have a product, service or business and looking for feedback from (real) families? Let us host a play date for you! We’ll work with you to develop a play date concept at your place of business (or other venue) and play host so that you can get unfiltered reactions from parents and kids. We can work together on an invite list or we can pull from the fabulous (cool) progeny reader community. Your play date will be captured through photos and/or video, and reviewed on (cool) progeny - - giving your business, product or service added exposure. If your product/business/service rocks (and we’re sure it does!), you’ll have a group of local parents ready to tell the world about it. Please contact us for play date rates via email or phone at 443-280-9563.
