What are the guidelines for submitting a review on WittyBear?

Honesty and love. Everyone is trying to do the best they can. We’re always excited to hear all the juicy details but please be kind with your words. Try to be constructive and refrain from using foul language. We will be screening but will not edit any reviews. If we find a review with any cuss words it will not be published.


Are there any requirements needed to be listed in the WittyBear directory?

Yes, we have 2 requirements.

Since most of our readers are native English speakers, companies must be able to cater to English speaking families and have a fully functional English language website or Facebook page.
