Last week we put the call out that we were looking for an Adelaide Dad to join the team here at Kids in Adelaide and WOW! we did not expect the response we got!!! We’ve had so many fantastic videos come in from so many fantastic Dads around Adelaide that we’re now struggling to work out how we’re ever going to choose.

We’re going to leave it open for another week(ish) so to answer some of the questions we’ve been getting we’ve put this post up to help you decide if you could be the Dad we’re looking for!

KiA Dad Search FAQ

What’s involved?
We are a team of seven Mums here at Kids in Adelaide and we feel it’s DEFINITELY time to “add a Dad” to the mix.
Basically we’re looking for someone who has an hour or two per week (sometimes more, sometimes less) to go to some events for us, visit some playgrounds, maybe sip a few babyccinos, possibly try some products out and just generally share what they get up to with their kids when they’re out and about in Adelaide.

Is it paid?
At the moment, payment will be in the form of free tickets to events, free movies, maybe some products, a free feed or two BUT down the track if we find the right guy we’re definitely open to this becoming a paid gig. Imagine that!!!! Getting paid to play!

Do I have to live in the city?
At first we thought yes, BUT since we opened up the applications we’ve had some really REALLY great regional Dads send in their videos so at this stage we’ll be finding one Adelaide based Dad and one or maybe two regional Dads. So no matter where you live, we want to hear from you!

Do I need any special skills?
No, not really. We would however like someone who is comfortable in front of the camera and happy to share photos and videos when they’re out and about. You don’t have to be Steven Spielberg but you do need a decent camera/phone and also need to be ok with us posting your images/videos on our website and social pages.

How many hours a week would it be?
It’s VERY flexible. To start with probably 1-2 hours a week, or one event/playground/cafe/place/thing a week. But that could increase down the track.

How do I apply?
Send us a short video either on Facebook, Instagram or you can email us at Let us know who you are, a bit about your kids (just ages is fine) and the kinds of things you like doing with them. Your favourite places to visit, where you like to go, your go to playground. Let us know if you have any ideas for what you could bring to our team, tell us a joke, show us your best dance moves (you won’t be the first one!!)

Got questions?
Let us know in the comments below, send us a PM on Facebook or Instagram.

So what are you waiting for! Send us your vid!

Hey Dads! We want YOU! ????We’re looking for a Dad, or maybe even a couple of Dads to come and join the KiA team. If you enjoy getting out and about with your kids, you’re comfortable in front of the camera, and you have time to check out some events, visit some playgrounds and keen to fill up your school holiday diary we want to hear from you.Send us a quick video message either here or over on Instagram and let us know a bit about you and why you’d like the gig and we’ll hopefully ADD A DAD to our team soon!

  • 2015 has been a big year in the Kids in Adelaide team! We have been so excited to see our Facebook followers increase from 3,350 to over 18,000 this year. Our website has also continued to grow and we do our best to keep it up to date while also managing our careers, kids and our never ending pile of laundry! We continue to be amazed by how awesome you guys are for supporting us and contributing to our content. Personally, 2015 has been a healthy, happy year for the KiA families. Julie headed off overseas with her family to watch her husband compete in the London and Paris marathons, and she was lucky enough to discover the joys (!) of travelling with a 2½-year-old and a little baby. I’d say travelling with two kids is a marathon in itself! Roxanne and Hubby have ventured overseas a few times also, taking their toddler along to great family-friendly locations in Fiji, Bali and Hawaii (clearly they hate the beach!). Roxy has also moved from a unit to a house with a yard this year and has been tormented by a pissed off magpie ever since.   In our little family, we…

  • As you've probably already seen on Facebook, I recently spent 9 days away in beautiful Bali. It was great, the weather was warm, the people were nice, our hotels were fantastic.... Holidays are my thing. I work my butt off to go on them. I go without lots of other stuff, just so that I can go on holidays. I love to travel, I work hard to travel and I'd love to be able to take my daughter overseas as much as I possibly can. BUT....................... sometimes, holidays with kids is shit! And when I say shit, I actually mean shit. Curious? Read on..... Almost from the minute she opened her eyes on our first Bali morning, she was foul. She was tired, but didn't want to sleep in She was hungry, but didn't want to eat anything for breakfast She was bored, but didn't want to go to kids club. Errrrr OK reality check here little lady. I know you're only 4 and the whole holiday concept means nothing when your whole life is one big holiday BUT STILL! We're in Bali mate, we've got nothing to do but swim, relax, eat whatever we want to, get our toes…

  • Decisions, decisions, decisions. We face them every day as a parent. Some are fairly easy – should I pack an apple or a banana in the lunchbox today? Some are a bit trickier - should I let my child walk to the corner shop with his friends? Recently I faced a parenting decision that I found difficult. Disclaimer: this isn’t the happy, funny post you are used to from Kids In Adelaide! But I think it’s a topic worth discussing and I would love to know your experiences. I have two young boys, aged six and nine. They are typical boys – they love to rough play on the trampoline, ride their bikes and generally make a lot of noise! They also like to read, to snuggle and to think. They are deep thinkers, they are sensitive, they are kind. My boys have always had great affection for their Great Pop (my husband’s grandfather). We call him Great Pop, because he was great! He was a truly incredible man. Even at 95 years of age, he would walk kilometres along the beach, or into town to do his groceries. We would laugh as he told us that everyone at the…
