Haven't opened the book fully as it is for a Christmas present but from what I have seen it looks very good quality. Smaller than expected.
Just ordered a personalised book for our 3 year old grandson for Christmas and it absolutely blew us away! Such a wonderful gift that will be enjoyed for years to come. Gifts are better when they are personal and this I could not of got a better gift. Thank you for an incredible service and out of this world purchase. Would highly recommend!

Fantastic service but it can get confusing if you’re trying to use a groupon voucher and it doesn’t except the code.

Great personalised product but some isues
Great personalised product but not straightforward to make it a gift without buying the extra box at £5 and delivery quoted was somewhat optimistic; it came on the last day of the quoted range (ok, it did arrive but we hoped it would be sooner such as mid-range)
