Babiekins Magazine // Print 6 by Rus Anson

We have an eye for quirk. We’re high-fashion, but we value whimsy over tradition. Playful childhood is more important to us than making kids into copycat adults. We believe life is beautiful, life is valuable, and life changes when you see it through the eyes of a child. We seek to transcend skin color, language and zip codes and bring out the real, wild, magical creativity inherent in every child.

We’re currently accepting content which fits the Babiekins aesthetic and has not been published, posted, shared, or displayed elsewhere. Our team is looking for content that’s not only fresh, original, and trendsetting, but also speaks to our boundless belief in the wild magic of childhood.

  • Giveaway Opportunity // Babiekins is turning FIVE!

    B A B I E K I N S   I S   T U R N I N G   F I V E.   [ C i n c o.   五.   F ü n f.   C i n q u e . ]

    To celebrate these five fabulous years, we're launching a brand-new website, collecting all of our favorite things for goody bags, and throwing a bunch of mini parties -- complete with group giveaways -- throughout the month of May.

    Do you have product you'd like to include in the virtual goody bags / group giveaways? We'd love to feature you! A spot in the giveaway feature includes an image of your product in a super-fun party post published on our website, and we'll also add a clickable credit that will be directed to any link you choose.

    We will be publishing several multi-item giveaways throughout the birthday celebration, so your item will be grouped with other products of a similar theme, color, function, etc -- this will give your item maximum splash and pizazz. 

    The cost for this feature is $250 per product.  As a part of this promotion, you will be required to ship the product(s) directly to the winner following the giveaway end. (You may also be given the option to supply an additional item for an optional Editor's Choice promotion taking place during the birthday month.)

    We're so excited to celebrate our fifth birthday with you!

  • Craft / DIY Submissions

    WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
    We're looking for craft / DIY submissions which have clear, easy-to-follow instructions. We prefer projects which call for supplies the average parent already has around the home, or projects which require minimal purchase of special supplies. Ideally, the Babiekins DIY is a craft a child or group of children would be excited about doing, rather than a craft an adult completes on the child's behalf. Seasonal or holiday-themed content is fun, but we love creativity and cultural celebrations, as well as the celebration of the everyday.

    When thinking about what to submit, keep our favorite crafts in mind.

    The content should fit the Babiekins aesthetic and not have been published, posted, shared, or displayed elsewhere. We're looking for content that’s fresh, original, and trendsetting!

  • Writing Submissions

    WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
    We're looking for lighthearted non-fiction articles every parent can relate to, preferably ones with a funny twist. We are also looking for imaginative and clever fictional stories and story poems, like the kind you might read in a children's book. In the past, we've published childhood recollections, travel adventures, conversations about autism, adoption stories, and funny commentary on the everyday saga of parenting.  It's okay to tackle tough subjects, as long as it's done in an uplifting way. (We don't do mommy wars.) Like our mission statement says, "We believe life is beautiful, life is valuable, and life changes when you see it through the eyes of a child. We seek to transcend skin color, language and zip codes and bring out the real, wild, magical creativity inherent in every child."

    When thinking about what to submit, keep our favorite articles in mind.

    Written submissions should be short, around 400-1000 words, and not have been published, posted, shared, or displayed elsewhere. We're looking for content that’s fresh and original.
