KinderPerfect is brought to you by the Vota family – Wayan, Amy, Hanalei, Archer, and Taxi Dog – and our supportive community of Petworth Parents in Washington, DC, with a special thanks to Maria Mandle of Creativecouch Designs.
We are fans of Cards Against Humanity, and enjoyed playing it with our friends, but felt it didn’t really speak to our experience as parents. We started adding in our own cards, and those suggested by our friends, which were so good, we started playing with our own parent-themed cards alone.
We then thought we should make a real card deck for our fellow neighbourhood parents, but they told us to think bigger. In between fits of laughter trying to answer cards like “Why is mommy mad?” or “What’s that smell?”, they convinced us to launch a Kickstarter to bring KinderPerfect to every parent.
After raising over $20,000 from 800 backers, and getting over 8,000 card suggestions from 700 parents, we’ve taken the next giant leap and put KinderPerfect on Amazon.com. We are now a Top 100 Card Game on Amazon, which is a surprise and an honor. Our humble idea is now a hit with parents nationwide!
We still love to play KinderPerfect with our friends, adding it to Cards Against Humanity for more fun. We also love hearing from parents playing KinderPerfect. Here is an Amazon review that we’re particularly proud to read:
So we bought the game awhile ago because honestly, being a stay at home mom, I need to have a social life. We have a ton of parent friends who would rather drink and play cards then go out so we are so glad we bought this! It’s hilarious! My “parent friends” and I have a terrible sense of humor. Borderline insane. We play cards against humanity a lot and we like to give each other hell. We have decided that KinderPerfect, for now, is definitely a mom game.
If you’ve played KinderPerfect, please let us know what you think. Your positive feedback is our greatest reward!
We secretly hoped that our game idea would resonate beyond our neighborhood, and we’re excited to see that the press love KinderPerfect. We’ve been written up in several major publications:
