Welcome to Tots100
Are you a UK parent blogger?
If you write an independent UK parent blog then we’d love to welcome you to our community. As a Tots100 blogger, we’ll share your blog and posts with our community, increasing your readership and introducing you to brilliant new blogs.
Tots100 bloggers can also enjoy regular blogging tutorials, webinars, social events and free blogging workshops, at our BlogCamp events around the UK.
If you’re interested in working with brands, the Tots100 runs a blogger-brand messaging platform. Tell us about your family and interests in your Tots100 profile, and PR agencies and brands will be able to contact you directly with event invitations, review opportunities and advertising offers. We have more than 100 brands and PR agencies who use the Tots100 to contact bloggers, so it’s a great way to get involved in reviews and brand events. But if you decide at any time you no longer want to receive messages, just log-in and change your preferences in your profile.
To join the Tots100, simply fill in the registration form and once your blog is approved, you will be issued a user ID and password that will give you access to the members-only content on our website. You’ll also be able to download a personalised Tots100 badge, which will display your Tots100 ranking on your blog each month.

About our Sponsor
H&A have been named our headline sponsors for a second year after a great 2014.
At H&A we’re passionate about bathtime! We believe it to be one of the most important times of the day for children and parents alike. It is a chance to spend quality time with your little ones, have fun – and it can be educational too. H&A is there to help with a fantastic range of products to make the experience even more enjoyable.
Our products include bathtime accessories, mild and gentle bubbly baths and shampoos and great bathtime gifts. We produce character products for the likes of Disney, Hasbro and Hit, along with our own well-loved and hugely popular, Bathtime Buddies brand. The H&A story began in 1988, when Angela Hall and a small team began developing products for supermarkets and high street stores. Over the years the business has evolved to what it is today, the UK’s number one children’s washing and bathing supplier. It isn’t a good luck story; the H&A team continually work hard to create exciting products of the highest standard with a fun bathtime in mind!
H&A is proud to design and develop each product in the UK, at our offices in the historic City of York and work with suppliers in the UK and around the world.
We’re really pleased to be working with the Tots100 for the second year and to benefit from working with the best UK parenting bloggers.

There’s a problem – what can I do?
Because our index relies on other people’s software and websites, sometimes problems can occur – if this happens, let us know and we’ll do our best to fix it as soon as possible. You can also log-in to your account at any time to see a complete breakdown of your scores. If you have a problem registering with us, or using the Tots100, then please contact us and we’ll do our very best to help.
Can you remove my blog?
Absolutely. If you’re the site owner and you would prefer we don’t list your blog, we’re happy to remove you, no questions asked.
Who publishes the Tots100?
The Tots100 was devised in March 2009 by freelance journalist and blogger Sally Whittle, and was previously published at her blog, Who’s the Mummy. Sally’s blog has been named the UK’s number 1 Mummy blog for three of the past four years by Cision, and Sally was short-listed in Red Magazine’s Red Hot Women Awards in 2012. Sally regularly appears in the media commenting on parenting and blogging issues. She is an experienced public speaker and has provided training to more than 200 PR agencies in media relations and blogger outreach in recent years. The Tots100 is now published by Flea Enterprises Ltd, which also publishes the Foodies100 and HIBS100 websites, and organises the MAD Blog Awards for British parent bloggers.
