This personalised first day at school book is excellent, I was really touched when I read it and I know the parents of the child I have bought it for will be too, and it is something that they can cherish and keep and give to her when she is older.
I bought this as a present for a little girl who is very fond of Rabbits. This book was just what I was looking for in picture format and text. Little girl was absolutely thrilled when I gave it to her. So I am very pleased indeed with my purchase. Arrived very quickly too.my only criticism is... children in the UK are taught to read and write with one capital letter and then lower case letters in their name. The text in the book is a mixture of First letter capital followed by lower case, and all capitals. Rather a shame that they have done this in my opinion.however, I would still purchase again.
Alice loved her book and Mum was delighted with it. All the characters are her favourite friends and she related to them straight awayAlice is starting school in Sept so thus book gives her all she needs to prepare for this big step in her lifeThankyou for supplying a n apt storyline that a child can understand
Excellent service and a wonderful book to read my grandson just loves the pictures too
What a buy!!This book is just fantastic. The pages are colourful and well illustrated.... but the story is outstanding. It brought back memories of taking my two daughters to their first day at school. I bought this for my granddaughter.... she loves it and it has put her at ease and she is now really looking forward to her first day at school in a few days time!

I bought this book as a leaving present for a child who is starting school (I have been his childminder since he was 6months old). This is a very sweet story about a child who is nervous about starting school, but very quickly starts to enjoy it. It's a lovely touch being able to personalise the book. A lovely gift!
Great item , very well made and my husband loves it ! Thanks guys 😃😃

The book was amazing (history of Leeds FC, brilliant. Unfortunately was due to arrive 7-13 and didn’t arrive until two days later. I had actually rung them to ask if could arrive by 11th. They were apologetic and refunded postage. Good gesture but present didn’t arrive for birthday.

Didn’t get the product
I ordered the book over two weeks ago and told it had been despatched and yet have had nothing delivered nor any communication from in the book regarding my complaint. No one sad boy is without a birthday present

Disappointed 18 January
I purchased a personalised Winnie the Pooh book for a christening
I purchased a personalised Winnie the Pooh book for my grandson’s christening. Having only a week until the event I paid £6.99 for priority delivery. They gave a due date of 7-8th January, which was 2-3 days in advance of when I needed the book. However, after waiting in both days, the book didn’t arrive. On 8th January I emailed to ask when I was likely to receive the book, to date I haven’t received any reply (it’s now 10 days later). The book eventually arrived 10th January (having been posted on 9th) but I didn’t receive it as we had already left to travel for the christening. I emailed again asking if I could have a refund of the priority delivery charge since the book hadn’t even been posted until after the stated arrival date. I received no reply. Whilst the product is ok the service has fallen well below expected standards and I was left embarrassed with no gift for such a special event.
The book is of good quality
The book is of good quality, the story and chosen name is inserted on each page, the service was very good would recommend to others.

The making of a good company is how they handle customers when things go wrong.Had there been ANY quality control before orders are dispatched my problem would have been spotted.
Such a shame customer goodwill is not something this company offers.
