We are excited that KinderPerfect is popular with parents – we are now a Top 100 Card Game on Amazon. Yet we are always humbled when we get a great Amazon review that reveals how our cards speak to parents.
We now have over 130 reviews on Amazon, and the vast majority of them are 5-star reviews. Some are short, just one sentence, but other reviews are long on detail and love that warm our hearts.
Just read this great 5-star review by Joette about how she enjoys KinderPerfect and compares it to Cards Against Humanity.
This is like Cards Against Humanity growing up and having kids.
I play KinderPerfect at our regular Mom’s Night Out and OMG! it is too funny. Its as if Cards Against Humanity grew up and then had kids. The question and answer cards speak to me as a parent.
- Poop or chocolate? – I ask this question daily.
- Crying over spilled breast milk – yep, done that.
- Beer cooler at the birthday party – Now that’s an idea!
The cards were crowdsourced from actual parents. I know because “a crowning selfie” was my suggestion. And yes, cards like that (actually pretty much every card) leads into a funny conversation when you are playing with friends, or some awkward ones if you are playing with family.
It was an interesting voyage of discovery playing this at a family reunion!
The cards themselves are the exact same size at Cards Against Humanity cards, so you can add them to your deck as another expansion pack, but I intend on playing it as its own game.
I like how its not as potty-mouthed as CAH so we can play with little ones running around underfoot. Only the parents will get answers to questions like “How we got your little brother?” or “Why is daddy in time out again?”.
We think KinderPerfect is an awesome game all by itself – its a Top 100 game on Amazon! – however any game can get boring if you don’t mix it up with new ways to play. That’s why we are excited that KinderPerfect fans are adding our game to Cards Against Humanity to create a whole new game for parents.
KinderPerfect cards are the same size as CAH cards. The red cards add spice to the black CAH cards, and since both KinderPerfect and CAH have white answer cards, players can add their ideas into the answer pile without anyone knowing who played a specific card.
Best of all, the combinations are hilarious!
Amazon Reviews of Combining KinderPerfect and Cards Against Humanity
We can tell you how fun it is to mix KinderPerfect and Cards Against Humanity, but don’t take our word for it, here are actual verified purchase Amazon reviews:
Case’s Amazon Review
Side-splitting! Great gift for parents. I highly-recommend it. It’s a Cards Against Humanity Style game for parents.
Kristy’s Amazon Review
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.
Rooney’s Amazon Review:
When there are no kids around, like on Moms Nights out, I like to combine KinderPerfect with Cards Against Humanity, which creates a whole new, twisted game. The red cards contrast with the black ones, and everyone gets excited when we come back round to them. The white cards play just like CAH white cards, just better for parents. Combined, you get combos that make everyone crack up.
John’s Amazon Review
I love playing Cards Against Humanity, but I usually play with other Dads, and while the game is fun, adding in KinderPerfect makes it way better with questions like: “Why does daddy drink?” or “Why is daddy in timeout again?” or “Signs you are THAT family” Just imagine all the fun answers you can find in a CAH deck! God bess, this is a great game for guys – buy it for your wife, play it with your pals.
Noelle’s Amazon Review:
OMG!!! So. Funny! It’s Cards Against Humanity for parents and if you have kids, you will sh#$ yourself laughing! Please, sir, can i have some more!?

We love seeing positive KinderPerfect reviews on Amazon. They are proof that our “Cards Against Humanity for Parents” game is fun and funny for everyone. Recently, we received several reviews on one of our cards that made us smile .
Card Review: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
We crowd sourced all the cards in KinderPerfect from actual parents, including us. One of our original card ideas was “Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see?” based on the children’s book of the same name that we were reading every night, again, and again to our kids at the time.
We are excited to hear that Amazon customer Michelle Burnham likes this card as much as he does. Here is her review:
“We played this with a group of parents on a multi-family vacation. It was so much fun! Very funny. Our favorite card was the ‘Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see?’ card. Every option was perfect for that one!”
Lisa Sorenson has a whole different Amazon review. She used the Brown Bear card to announce her pregnancy.
“I love this game! Cards Against Humanity is too raunchy for me personally… I’ve played with parents and other non-parents, and everyone has really enjoyed it. My husband and I even played it with our parents and used the cards as our pregnancy announcement by writing on one of them! “Brown Bear Brown Bear, what do you see?” ‘My unfinished baby book for baby Sorenson, due July 2017’ It worked perfectly!”
When making KinderPerfect cards, we are always nervous about the cards. We want to make sure each card is funny in its own way, and helps parents laugh at the challenges of modern parenting. We’re excited that millennial moms love our Brown Bear card. We hope you will too.
Parents hate Caillou. That’s the overwhelming message from the 700 millennial parents who submitted almost 8,000 card ideas to create KinderPerfect, the new card game for parents that’s like Cards Against Humanity.
Surprise! Parents Hate Caillou
When we asked parents for card ideas when we launched KinderPerfect, we expected they would suggest cards about poop and puke, the twin shocks for new parents. We did get card ideas like, “a poop mural” and “projectile vomiting,” but we also got a whole slew of cards hating on Caillou.
Parents have a deep hatred of Caillou, the animated television series about an inquisitive four year of the same name. We never imagined that a cartoon toddler would create such animosity. As Americans, we had never seen the show, and didn’t know much about the bald Canadian child.
Then we watched a show in the name of market research.
Caillou is a Whiny Bitch
Wow! Once you watch the show, you’ll realize why parents hate the show so much. It starts with the annoying theme song that introduces Caillou’s whiny voice, which then never shuts up. He has a sister named Rosie, a cat named Gilbert, and two parents without any noticeable personality traits, besides letting Caillou act in ways you’d never want your kid to act.
He whines non-stop, orders people around, foolishly hurts himself, throws senseless tantrums, and causes endless trouble, then shares his self-centered views about all these activities, while his mother stands idly by or even encourages him. All the signs he’s THAT family.
And why is he bald? Caillou is purported to mean “pebble” or “bald head” in French, and the show creators apparently made him bald as a way to represent all children, but how many bald toddlers do you know? There are whole Internet memes trying to explain why he is bald.
Oh, and its pronounced Cai-yoo, just to be extra annoying.
Caillou is Why Mommy Drinks
Usually, we can watch our children’s shows and find some fun in them. Not so with Caillou. Do not watch that show sober. You need at least one glass of wine before that theme song starts. Why? Here are a few reasons why Caillou makes mommy drink:
- The Cat: Why does it magically become a puppet, a talking puppet at that, and then switch back to being a regular cat, without any explanation? Even in cartoon-land there needs to be a reason to morph between shapes.
- The Mommy: Why does the mom act so casual during real emergencies? Caillou gets the chicken pox and she doesn’t do anything, which means poor Rosie gets the pox too. And wow, she needs a much better bra! No mom – cartoon or not – should have her saggy post-pregnancy boobies dropping like that.
- The Grandma: Episodes start with a grandma narrating a story about Caillou to two kids, and Caillou is a doll. So is this a story about Caillou, or a story about a grandma reading stories about Caillou? Or is it a cartoon about a story about a cartoon? Good luck answering those questions!
Blame Canada for Caillou
Canada usually obsesses about having a positive international reputation for love and neutrality. Yet Canadians are surprisingly tolerant of a bald toddler creating new foreign enemies every day.
Caillou is produced in Canada and was inspired by a popular Quebec children’s book series. The television program started in Canada, but is now shown on PBS in the USA too. Of course this has promted many parents to petition PBS to stop showing the children’s program, and rightly so.
But why does Canada continue to export Caillou? Could it be that Caillou is an accurate portrayal of Canadian parenting? Could Canadian parents be raising a generation of whiny bitches? Can this be the outcome of a tolerant marijuana policy? Too much maple syrup and whiskey? Probably…
In the process of developing KinderPerfect, a new card game for parents now on Amazon.com, over 700 millennial parents submitted almost 8,000 card ideas to create parenting-themed question and answer cards similar to the popular Cards Against Humanity card game. Their suggestions for KinderPerfect reveal a generational shift in parenting.
“We expected to see many card suggestions around poop,” says Wayan Vota, co-founder of KinderPerfect. “We were really surprised by the many ways millennial moms are consuming their own placenta.”
Card suggestions included the seemingly mainstream practice of creating placenta pills from the afterbirth, yet other ideas included “an ice-cold placenta smoothie”, “placenta pancakes”, and “placenta lasagna”. Some parents even suggested, “an umbilical cord sample platter.”
“As a GenX parent, I never thought about eating my own placenta when giving birth to our two daughters,” says Amy Vota, KinderPerfect co-founder. “Yet it turns out that humans are one of the very few mammals who do not engage in placentophagy – eating their own placenta just after childbirth. Millennial moms are taking us back to our mammalia roots.”
Consuming breast milk was also central to card suggestion ideas, including “breast milk popsicles,” “breast milk coffee creamer,” and “breast milk pancakes.”
Other insights from the thousands of card idea submissions include a deep hatred of Caillou, an animated television series about an inquisitive four year of the same name. For example, “Caillou, that whiny bitch,” is indicative of the overall dislike of the children’s character.
“I never imagined that a cartoon toddler would create such animosity,” says Wayan Vota. “As an American, I was surprised at parents’ visceral hatred of a bald Canadian child.”
Dreaming of Sex
Netflix is now central to the parenting experience, with multiple references to just watching, and often binge watching the television streaming service. Suggestions included the phrase, “Netflix and chill,” that refers to having sex while watching a TV program. Netflix is also used a digital babysitter, where that extra hour of screen time is an opportunity for parents to create younger siblings.
Sadly, millennial parents are not having that much sex. Following in the footsteps of their GenX and Baby Boomer parents, they are going long stretches without sex, or trying to copulate in hushed and hurried circumstances, such as “silent couch sex,” that was mentioned along with “Netflix and chill.” Card suggestions included question cards like “Our code word for sex is ____,” with responses including, “adult wrestling,” “daddy time,” and “Dora the Explorer.”
“During every Design Party, where we test out new card ideas, the ‘Our code word for sex is ____,’ card always creates a entire discussion about the duality of being parents and also being lovers,” says Wayan Vota. “Parental sex, and the lack of it, is a timeless challenge for parents,” concurs Amy Vota. “Millennial parents have more options to entertain and distract their children to allow for intimacy, but they still struggling with exhaustion that comes with parenting.”
Drinking Away the Pain
One way millennial parents are coping is through copious amounts of alcohol. KinderPerfect uses “mommy juice” as a euphemism for wine, but submitters are more frank with their alcoholism, and associated guilt. There were 40% more card suggestions that featured “wine” than those that featured “sex,” with multiple references to “a sippy cup of wine,” “the whole bottle of wine,” “the second bottle of wine,” “not enough wine,” and a favorite, “a bottle of fine whine”.
We designed KinderPerfect to be the Cards Against Humanity for parents that you’ve been dreaming of playing this Christmas. Like every parent, we love our kids, but they can drive us crazy. It’s their antics, and those of other children, that inspired us to make KinderPerfect.
Why We Made KinderPerfect Like Cards Against Humanity
Parenting is tough. You don’t get an instruction manual when you leave the hospital with your newborn, yet everyone you meet has an opinion of what you are doing wrong or should be doing differently. Worse, it’s usually your parents.
We want KinderPerfect to be safe place for parents to laugh at the pain of parenting, and allow them to discuss the real challenges of raising kids. That’s why we took the basic game play of Cards Against Humanity (and Apples to Apples before it) and adapted for the Millennial parenting experience – from the baby shower onwards.
For example, our kids had us read “Brown bear, brown bear what do you see?” until we memorized all the pages in that set of books, and started making up our own animals for it to see. And what parent doesn’t have a half-assed drawing taped to their refrigerator?
Another one of friend’s daughter was always sucking on the ear of a stuffed animal for over a year, only taking it out of her month to eat. She wouldn’t allow her mom to wash it either. That inspired the card, “No, don’t put ____ in your mouth!” And the potential answer card, “Another damn stuffed animal.”
Why KinderPerfect Is Like Cards Against Humanity for Parents
Our aim is to take the everyday pain of parenthood and make it into an excuse for mommy juice!
The “Parent” player will read out a red Question Card and other players will submit their white Answer Cards. The Parent picks the winner they like the best, well, because they said so. The winner then becomes the Parent for the next round. You win by amassing useless Answer Cards, just like in real life!
KinderPerfect plays well with other games, like Cards Against Humanity and Apples to Apples, but it’s also great to play on its own. We have 210 casino-quality cards that will integrate seamlessly with other games and last stain-free longer than a baby onesie.
Better yet, you can help us make new cards and if we use your idea, we’ll send you a free game!
Are you looking for Cards Against Humanity expansion packs? New card games to enliven your existing CAH card stock? Then you’re going to love these six secret CAH expansion games we’ve found just for you.
Secret Cards Against Humanity Expansions
We’re huge fans of unofficial CAH expansion packs that take the humor of CAH and apply it to uniquely American niches, producing biting satire across the country.
These games are often produced by leaders in their respective fields who want to bring a bit of levity to their profession. Support their efforts by buying a game from them. Who knows – you might actually get the inside jokes!
Disgruntled Decks is a card game for military service members and grizzled Veterans who enjoy laughing together about their time in the service.
With a unique blend of descriptive language and military themes, Disgruntled Decks gives one more reason for service members and Veterans to talk about their shared experiences while having fun in the process.
The founders of Disgruntled Decks strongly believe that humor is healing, and some Veterans still have a good amount of healing left to do. They hope to provide some of that humor with Disgruntled Decks.
A Game for Good Christians
A Game For Good Christians was developed through years of many irreverent and deeply theological conversations; Bible studies, seminary classes, sermons, readings and reflections are at the root of this game, as is deep exploration of the Bible.
The cards capture stories, characters, and statements from the Bible. Some familiar and comforting, others frightening and confusing. The Bible, like humanity, is messy because it contains the messy relationship between the divine and humanity: a relationship which is humorous and horrifying.
A Game For Good Christians embraces this dissonance. They ask you to do the same.
JadedAid is a new card game for world-weary development workers to be the cynicism they want to see in the world.
Their idea is simple: take the everyday frustrations of working for the Development Industrial Complex (the DIC) and turn them into a prescription for fun! JadedAid incorporates cross-cutting themes like paternalism, chauvinism, and elitism to illuminate the inherent discrimination and dissonance in international development.
JadedAid should be played with copious indigenous alcohol and really good friends. Best if at least one donor is marginalized afterwards. And yes, they have an expansion pack too!
Cards Against Urbanity
Cards Against Urbanity is the card game for horrible places. It replaces all the cards in a Cards Against Humanity deck with jokes by and about urbanists. The cards are less offensive than CAH, but definitely irreverent.
Players can create sentences like “Architects should really pay more attention to _______”, filling in the blank with “a blue-haired amateur historian,” “Mr. Monorail,” or “Peak beard.”
Cards Against Urbanity is a product of GreaterPlaces and Do Tank D.C., a tactical-urbanism group composed mostly of city-design professionals.
Wilted Green is a party game for the eco-cynic in all of us. They took the concept of Cards Against Humanity and added an environmental twist. Now you can kick off those Birkenstocks, fill up your Nalgene with craft beer, and take a break from saving the planet in good conscience.
Wilted Green is a way to poke fun at favorite overplayed stereotypes, unintentional parodies, and familiar caricatures in the wonderful world of sustainability. After all, you’re not a real environmentalist until you’re using your own poop as compost for your backyard garden.
Each Wilted Green deck brings levity to the kind souls among us who carefully weigh the environmental consequences of every decision they make.

Babies Against Parenthood
Designed by Amanda Hearn at The Eco Friendly Family, the free-to-download Babies Against Parenthood is a funny, multiplayer party game.
This version for baby showers is more PG than Cards Against Humanity, but thankfully that’s open to interpretation.
You can download the PDF and print out cards for your big event.
Cards Against Humanity
Of course, you can always go back to the original. Cards Against Humanity is available for free downloads under their Creative Commons license. You can download the original game here and print it out yourself.
Making the full card set will take an hour and cost about $10 if you print it in black and white. Less if you use your work printer (not that we’d do that!).
If all that sounds like too much work for you (it does for us!) we again recommend taking the easy route and just buying KinderPerfect on Amazon or downloading our print-at-home PDF.
KinderPerfect is the new family-friendly version of Cards Against Humanity, where you can learn fun facts about your childhood and your relatives parenting skills without the crassness of other card matching games.
KinderPerfect is Family Friendly
KinderPerfect is designed to be family-friendly PG-13 to celebrate the role of family in all of our lives. We don’t have outright sexually explicit cards, though there is plenty of innuendo, in case little ears are around when the game is played. We also do not have racist, abusive, or genuinely insulting cards.
There are 2-3 mentions of ass, damn, and bitch, but the few sh*t and f**k are starred out in case little ones are old enough to read. You can skip over the bad words if you choose.
KinderPerfect is LDS Friendly
We didn’t design KinderPerfect with Mormons in mind, but we’re very happy that members of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can enjoy the game too. Here is an Amazon review from the LDS community that we’re particularly proud of:
I am a Mormon. I bought these for a baby shower and it was a hit! You will need a Sharpie to ‘Mormonise’ a few cards. For example changing any alcohol related cards to sugar or caffeine highs!
They do contain the words F*** (already starred out) A** and D**. I just Sharpied those out and it works the same. It does have one B**** word which I just changed to boy. It doesn’t get much cleaner than Mormon, so if you are on the fence, I’d say go ahead and buy these with a Sharpie at the ready! 🙂
You can also check out our free PDF version and read most the cards before you buy the full KinderPerfect card game on Amazon.
Want a FREE KinderPerfect Game?
We think KinderPerfect is a great baby shower game. It’s a fast, fun game to surprise expecting moms and new parents with tales of poop, puke, and Caillou – the triptych of modern parental terror.
At 210 cards, you might be able to get through all the questions in one party, but if you have friends like ours, where every hand becomes a whole discussion of cloth diapers and hand-made organic baby food, we doubt you can finish before at least one mother is pumping at the card table.
For example, what is your answer to these cringe-worthy new parent questions:
- Before kids, I never thought about ______?
- What is that smell?
- Why does mommy drink?
- What the f**k is that?!
We’d love for you to play KinderPerfect at your next baby shower, gender reveal party, and similar events to see if we’re right.
