Jeremy and Audrey Roloff have their connection to the TLC series Little People, Big World to thank for their massive following on social media. One of the perks to having a massive social media following is getting to use it to make money. Companies and brands will hire social media influencers to push their products and services.
While there is certainly nothing wrong with using social media to make money… LPBW fans aren’t too happy with Jeremy and Audrey Roloff using their following and their children to make some cash.
Jeremy Roloff recently used his daughter Ember in an advertisement.
A few days ago, LPBW fans watched as Jeremy Roloff treated their daughter Ember to a Fisher Price Little People toy. Initially, his followers loved seeing her reaction to a new toy. They thought it was a sweet moment between father and daughter. But, those feelings shifted when he posted on Instagram. In the post, he encouraged followers to check out the Instagram Story (which has now expired).
In the caption of the photo featuring himself and Ember playing with the toy… Jeremy Roloff kicked off the caption by clarifying it was an advertisement. He then went into great detail about the toy.
“Ember really loves playing with little figures and baby dolls. And since she’s about grown out of all her baby toys it’s time to get her something a little more her age. So after our recent trip to Bend I got her the Little People Cuddle & Play Nursery from @fisherprice.” He penned as he explained why it was time to upgrade some of his daughter’s toys.
It’s the perfect toy for her and it comes with several different ways to take care of all the figures. It’s also a carry case so she can take it with her places.”
He concluded the caption by announcing it was “time” to get down on the floor and play with some baby dolls with Ember. Jeremy revealed this toy set was now available for purchase on Amazon if anyone else wanted to pick up a set.

#ad Ember really loves playing with little figures and baby dolls. And since she’s about grown out of all her baby toys it’s time to get her something a little more her age. So after our recent trip to Bend I got her the Little People Cuddle & Play Nursery from @fisherprice. It’s the perfect toy for her and it comes with several different ways to take care of all the figures. It’s also a carry case so she can take it with her places. 🤙🏼 Time to lay on the ground with my daughter and play with baby dolls. 😂 If you didn’t watch my stories, you need to. It’s available on @amazon Now! #letsbekids #littlepeoplebabies
His fans loved the picture, but hated the promotion.
Unfortunately for Jeremy Roloff, the post did not feel genuine to his followers. They took great issue with just how promotional the post was. The picture felt staged and the caption read like an advertisement or product listing. Moreover, fans did not care for Jeremy Roloff using his daughter Ember to make money.
“I was excited for her…. almost emotional… then realized it was all for an #AD lame.” One disappointed follower penned in the comments.
Another chimed in: “they stated that they were getting her a toy for being so well behaved on their trip. It seems less genuine when its an ad. Like I’m sure they picked out the toy, but it should have been more from the heart and less because they had to make so many IG stories to meet the requirements of their contract with Fisher Price.”
Overall, the biggest concern fans had was that the thoughtful gift didn’t feel real or from the heart. It felt promotional to be a sweet family moment.
