I’ve been watching Kidazzler since February 2019. Over this time, they proved themselves as a legitimate company with great ideas pursuing a good cause.
This review is organized a bit chaotically because I had to write numerous updates as the actions and plans of Kidazzler progressed and were gradually revealed to the public. Please check out updates at the end of this review.
Important Announcement from Julia Rehman, Kidazzler’s co-founder and VP of Sales & Marketing: Directory Launch Date! The launch of Kidazzler Directory is postponed by 30 days. Please watch the video for details:
I decided to test yet another earnings opportunity. Unfortunately, you can’t wait for my results because then you’ll miss the opportunity altogether.
In this post I will do my best answering two questions:
What is Kidazzler? AND
Is Kidazzler a scam?
I will share with you my findings, but please be aware that I never claimed that this is a legit opportunity – I have no way of knowing. The time will speak for Kidazzler or against them. Please continue reading and if you decide that you can afford the risk, click here to sign up.
If you find the overall idea of Kidazzler interesting, you don’t mind waiting for your actual earnings and are willing to join the Kidazzler’s community, I encourage you to also read bUnited review. It looks like Alex Rehman, the founder of Kidazzler, was inspired and motivated by bUnited’s idea. His project, while different in many ways, seemed to grow out of bUnited’s prototype.
What is Kidazzler?
Kidazzler is a mobile app and a website for parents. Kidazzler came up with the idea to launch a global directory for parents with places and activities for their kids: after-school education, sports, dance studios, arts and music classes, entertainment, restaurants, camps, pediatric services, daycares, clothing stores, toy stores, pet stores, and anything else that a family with children may be interested in. Basically, any child-friendly or family-friendly business will be listed in their directory. They claim that it will become a “One Place for Everything Kids” platform, a free parenting resource.
Kidazzler invites everybody to participate in building such a directory. There is no fee to join as a contributor. The company expects to earn revenue from the advertising businesses and reward everyone who participates in growing its directory and adds new listings to it with a share of it.
Kidazzler’s mission is honorable: they aim to offer, free of charge, a tremendous resource for all parents and help financially by introducing their “Shared Revenue Model” to those parents who decide to contribute.
Kidazzler blog: “Our goal is to reward as many parents as possible with a financial stake in the platform that we’re building together.”
How does it work?
Kidazzler announced two phases. They are currently in Phase 1, which runs through March 2019. Their directory is not launched to the public yet.
In phase one Kidazzler team and all the contributors build the directory, starting with the USA and Canada, but aiming to eventually expand globally. Until the end of phase 1, the directory will not be searchable. Contributors provide businesses’ names and contact information, Kidazzler team contacts the businesses and offers them to advertise on the Kidazzler platform.
Phase 2 starts in April 2019. That’s when the businesses which agreed to advertise with Kidazzler start paying their fees, the directory becomes searchable, and the contributors start getting paid their share.
What is Expected From the Contributors and What Reward is Promised to the Contributors?
By signing up for FREE and downloading the app the contributors add the businesses in the app (or on the Kidazzler website if not using a mobile device) starting in the area where they live or anywhere in the USA and Canada.
We, the contributors, are promised to earn $10.00 monthly from EACH business we put in which decided to sign up and be included in the Kidazzler global directory. At the time I joined Kidazzler, the maximum number of businesses I could “lock” in my name was 45. We don’t make any calls, we just find and add the businesses in the app or on the website. Multiple locations of the same business are considered individual businesses as soon as each location has its own unique phone number. The required information is a business name, phone number (must be unique!), and street address. Optionally, we can add a business email and website. Kidazzler staff will call the businesses about the possibility of placing their advertisement in the directory. Once one person added a business, it is locked under this person’s name. This means that another member cannot add the same business again. The unique key is the phone number of the business.
We can also invite friends to join under us and earn an additional $2.00 per business they add!
Basically, Kidazzler tells us that the company wants to share the revenue from the advertising businesses with us, their members and contributors. They claim that each one of us, as an active contributor, has a potential of earning up to $4,800.00 per month.
Is Kidazzler a scam?
The company’s idea sounds really good and the way they manage their business at this starting stage seems legitimate. While none of the members are formally getting paid in Phase 1, they run some drawings with small cash prizes to encourage members to actively grow their directory and their community. Scamadviser gives Kidazzler website high trust rating – 83%
My personal feeling after all the research I’ve done gave me a green light to sign up. The work of adding business contact information is not very time-consuming.
This gig definitely cannot be considered “a job”, not even a part-time job. It’s a small project that, if turns out to be legit, may supplement your income from another source. If you are looking for a meaningful online occupation which leads to a sustainable income, use this link to read about the place where you can be earning while learning.
So far, I spent about 1.5 hours of my time and added 20 businesses with their emails and websites (I visited each website to make sure I submit the correct information). I didn’t rush at all, and I am sure that many others could do the same amount of work quicker. I am planning to add 25 more businesses. The research of the company and writing of this article took me more time than all the work I’ve done so far directly for Kidazzler. I wrote this article to share my findings with you, my reader. It would be nice if you decided to sign up using my referral, but if not, I am okay with that too. I don’t want to lie to you. I’d rather show you a true picture and possible level of risk. If you don’t want to be scammed, join Wealthy Affiliate instead, an all-inclusive platform where you can learn all about affiliate marketing, build and host your own website, and run your own full-scale online business.
In my view, the worst that may happen to me in this venture is that either none of my proposed businesses will decide to advertise with Kidazzler (though, Kidazzler convincingly believes that their platform will be more attractive to businesses of all sizes, than what their competitors have to offer!) or Kidazzler turns out to be a pure scam artist, and will not pay anything to anybody, but instead will close the business at the end of phase 1, and reopen under a different name sometime later using our collected data. That last phrase is a totally made-up assumption based on nothing – I’m just trying to imagine the worst possible scenario 🙂 In that worst case, you and I will lose the time we invested. I don’t want to waste my time, and I don’t think this would happen, but if it does, I am prepared not to stress out too much over it. Honestly, if this family directory will ever be launched, I don’t mind contributing to it even if I was asked to volunteer. Even a non-guaranteed possibility of getting paid makes the mission even more attractive. Free access to a huge assembly of kids-related and family-oriented places and services is a really thoughtful and generous idea, isn’t it? I want to believe that such an honorable idea is not being used to scam people.
If you don’t want to take chances, then join a 100% guaranteed legitimate all-inclusive platform where you can learn how to build your own lucrative online business. The Starter membership is FREE. Click here for more information, and/or…
While it’s impossible to give 100% guarantee that Kidazzler is a legitimate company until they start paying out to their members, my research convinced me that the risk is minimal and in the worst-case scenario, the possible loss of invested time is tolerable. No financial loss is involved since it’s a FREE opportunity. Basically, the main question is: should we do the work now and trust Kidazzler’s promise to pay us later? It’s up to you to decide… I lean toward trusting this company, and at the same time, I am prepared to be scammed.
Do you think Kidazzler is trustworthy? Would you take this opportunity with a small chance to be scammed?

05.03.2019 – Update on Kidazzler
The major news is that Kidazzler community members, whose “locked” business(es) opted-in to advertise with Kidazzler in April, received their first payment on May 1st. There is a lot of excitement, positive energy and a sense of unity present in the Kidazzler Elite Inner Circle Facebook group. The first amounts are low, but there is a lot of hope and joy. People are cheering and congratulating members who received their first reward.
The “Invite Only” feature will be disabled on August 1st, 2019. This means that until this date, new members are welcomed to join and invite their friends, “lock” businesses and receive recurring payments from the businesses’ advertisement fees locked by them and by their friends as described in Kidazzler’s rules. Starting August 1st, 2019, Kidazzler will be an open platform for anyone to use and benefit from. Per many members’ requests and enquires, Kidazzler team decided to “grandfather” the invitation feature for those who signed up before August 1st. This means that even after August 1st, these members will have the ability to continue inviting their friends and benefiting by “locking” their name to every business they add to Kidazzler.
Today, I am inviting you to join Kidazzler with more assurance that this business is real and its idea is honorable! Sign up before August 1st using the button below. Once you become a member, join Kidazzler Elite Inner Circle Facebook group to be updated regularly, participate in all the fun activities and share the excitement.

I am a skeptic. “The hope that GOOD still exists in this world” was the drive for me to join in. If at the end this whole project turned out to be a scam, my biggest fear was not to lose the time I invested, but to lose that faith. I certainly wouldn’t lose faith in good people as I am lucky to have many in my life, but I would lose faith in honest entrepreneurs. I believe in Alex’s, good intentions and the good purpose of this project. I hope that they won’t let me lose my faith.
Once again, you, my dear reader, make your own choice and trust your own gut.

02.22.2019 – Update on Kidazzler
I want to thank YOU, my reader and my website’s visitor, for giving your feedback. Your comments keep me on my toes and encourage me to think of new resources for more information and to continue with my research. So, please do keep those comments coming!
Today, while answering to the comment regarding validating Kidazzler’s website, I searched for the name of the founder of the company, and couldn’t find it. I sent a private message to Kidazzler on Facebook asking why they are thoroughly hiding the owners’ name, and what assurance could they give me that this company is NOT a SCAM.
In about 2 hours, I received a polite and detailed response from Jennifer, the Customer Service Representative.
First, Jennifer answered the “Founder” question. She wrote: “The names of the founders are not hidden. We don’t make an effort to publicize this information to protect their privacy, but we’re happy to answer this question when someone asks as we’ve done before in our Kidazzler Elite Inner Circle Group on FB.” Then, she gave me the Kidazzler’s Founder and CEO full name. Since this is a public website, I’d like to respect their attempt to protect this person’s privacy, and therefore I will not publish his last name either. Everyone who is interested in this information can contact Kidazzler via the link I shared above or in the Facebook group that Jennifer mentioned. His first name is Alex.
I found Alex’s personal account on Facebook, and there was his letter to all his Facebook friends, dated December 20th, 2018 :
Every day I talk to so many people across the country and I hear their stories of hardships. It’s sad to see so many people hurting and not having many options to make more money to improve their lives.
Even the people that have good-paying jobs also feel unhappy. The pressure of not having the freedom to do what they want and feeling stuck in their own un-ending cycle of working countless hours just to pay the bills can be overwhelming at times.
The way I see it everyone struggles in life. Stress and moments of depression hit everyone, no matter who you are, where you live or how much money you have. Just because our circumstances may not be ideal today, DOESN’T MEAN that’s the way it has to stay. Change is possible.
So I had this idea. Billions of people use many social platforms today, and we now understand just how important our daily participation is to their success. Every time we like, share, comment, login to these platforms, we help attract more and more businesses to advertise and spend millions or even billions in advertising dollars.
What if there was a way for all of us to do what we do on social media and continue being a part of the success story, while at the same time also being a part of the earning story?
I believe that with so much money in advertising today, there is plenty to go around to the company, users, investors, businesses, and everyone else.
From this belief, the idea for Kidazzler was born.”
Then, Alex continued his letter by explaining his Revenue Sharing model and summarized the Kidazzler’s idea with the following: “If I had to explain it in 4 words they would be: ‘Build Together. Earn Together.’ “
The fact that the real person behind this business is disclosed, adds another bit to my trust and, hopefully, yours too.
In response to my second question, Jennifer wrote a long essay! There was much of repeating the public information of the company’s mission, its honorable goals, and an explanation of the overall idea of the “Revenue Sharing Model” again. I’d like to quote her here only on a few points. She wrote to me:
“I mean, generally speaking, scams require financial investments and never pay out. Kidazzler is free and we’ve already paid out thousands of dollars to our members through the Kidazzler Contests that we ran this month.”
“I assure you that we didn’t spend the last 2 years developing our platform and mobile apps, creating branding content, and acquiring trademarks and a provisional patent on our Revenue Sharing Model as part of an elaborate scam.”
“Kidazzler is not a job and it’s not a get rich overnight scheme. Kidazzler is an opportunity that will benefit all who use it and all who build it. [ … ] To make $4,800 per month in residual income is life-changing. But for some people, $1000, $500, $300, $100, or even $50 extra per month can make a huge difference.”
The point of this update…
My additional research did not change my final statement: there is no way of guaranteeing that this business is legitimate until people start receiving their share of the revenue. However, my trust builds up on my new discovery and my personal experience communicating with Kidazzler’s representative. I hope that you, my reader, are feeling the same. If so, join Kidazzler while they are still in phase 1.
But, if you are an incorrigible skeptic, then you might be the only person whom you would trust. 🙂 No problem! Build your own online business with the help of Wealthy Affiliate, and you won’t be scammed for sure.
By the way, if you do decide to join Kidazzler, you are still welcome to join Wealthy Affiliate – these are two completely different opportunities, and one is not in the way of the other. You can manage both; they won’t interfere with each other. Happy earnings!
02.17.2019 – Update on Kidazzler
Today, I received an email from Kidazzler. It explains a notification I see under the bell icon on my account page stating that one of the businesses I entered “has claimed their listing”. It only means that this business verified their name, phone number, and address I provided. They created a business account with Kidazzler for free. The email states: “As we move on to Phase 2, businesses will get a chance to begin advertising on Kidazzler. And when businesses “Locked” in your name pay us, we’ll pay you. That’s how our “Shared Revenue Model” works.” This is not bad news, but unfortunately, the business didn’t pay to advertise just yet. We are still waiting for Phase 2.
Kidazzler tells us that the directory grows quickly. Therefore, they are opening more space to provide an opportunity for parents to participate in Phase 1. The new maximum number of businesses a single member can add is 50 (5 more slots were recently added).
So far, Kidazzler’s behavior does not give any signs of a wrong intention: they stay in touch, they keep us updated, their website is functioning well, their actions are logical… While they don’t generate any revenue, they have nothing to share with us. It seems like they do more work than each of us does for them, and they also don’t produce any profit to be paid for their efforts. I am very hopeful that this company can be trusted.
However, even if Kidazzler keeps all its promises, please don’t count on this opportunity as your main source of income. Sign up and do for them as much as your time permits. Don’t sacrifice any time required by of your other obligations for this work. Remember that nobody can guarantee that the businesses you entered will choose to advertise with Kidazzler. Think of this venture as your possible supplemental passive income – not your main job.
