Mumsnet Reviews: how do they work?

Screengrab of reviewsThe basics

Mumsnetters rate products and destinations by awarding them between one and five stars for particular attributes. These attributes vary according to type – MNers rate pushchairs, for example, on whether they're easy to fold, steer and transport – as well as on their durability and value for money.

We rank each product or destination by totalling its stars, then dividing the total by the number of reviews to reach an average overall score.


Wisdom of the crowd

To determine display order, after rating, we factor in the number of reviews each product has received. So, if two products have the same overall score, the one with most reviews will rank highest.

When a product has received more than five reviews of more than four stars over the last 18 months, it will be eligible for Mumsnet Best - you can find out more about this badge here.
