It really is a Haynes manual - looks like one, laid out like one - just hilarious. Very well received

I would’ve given the quality of product a 5 as the product itself was exactly as it looked on the website. However, the cover was not smooth and glossy because of what appeared to looked like glue residue on it. I had to give it a wipe and thankfully it did all come off and now looks and feels as it should.
The book itself is very good and funny for any parent or parent to be!

Purchased for my wife for Christmas as we have a 10 month old. The book is great and very humorous. A lovely gift which we personalised with my sons name so will be a keepsake for years to come.
I got this for my besties daughter. She loved it. Seeing her name and face in a book about elsa was a very cool surprise

Extremely bad quality
The order was late and they had given a week delivery slot which is pretty bad. The book arrived with a dog eared corner and a crease down the spine. It’s a flimsy quality that will tear easily along the spine if bent the wrong way. I have bought this for a 1 year old first birthday and I don’t know if they will be able to play with it. Please trust the reviews and stay away!! The products are overpriced and poor quality. I don’t usually leave reviews but felt the need to on here.

Grandson's football book!
I bought the football book for my Grandson. Despite being under three and therefore not yet able to read he has enjoyed the pictures and having the story read to him with his name.
