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.

A lovely gift for my Granddaughter and her husband on the birth of their baby daughter.
The font size was not very good for a young child to read, it was too 'fussy',.
Also the child's name was not mentioned enough.

Not interested in full customer satisfaction
Uploading a photo on the inset of the book was one the features that made me purchase the book, but this did not upload as I found out when the book came through late! Slightly disappointed they didn’t offer a reprint as a goodwill gesture for full customer satisfaction. The book was one of a number of presents for a 5 year old. So seeing her pic on the book would have made all the difference

Purchased as a gift
Purchased as a gift. Delivered earlier than expected, it turned out to be an awesome addition to a true baseball fan’s collection. Embossing was perfect, book was exactly what we expected.
