Such a nice book and keep sake for younger children and helps with learning too
I bought this for My husbands cousin for her baby shower present as she requested everyone bring a book rather than a card. What a fab idea! I wanted a book that i could personalise for her little one and something that nobody else would get....this book is amazing! The quality is fab and its nice and bright plus its educational. The mummy to be was really thrilled and everyone asked me where i got it from. Thank you so much i do believe it was her favourite book on the day ! X
Very elegant and classyLoved itBought as 1st birthday sentimental keepsake gift
Bought this as a christening present and although it is aimed at an older child, I thought it would be a nice keepsake and her parents clearly thought so too. They loved it. It is such a fun book, colourful, educational and funny and the ability to add your own personalised message in the book is a really nice touch.
The letters are not the usual a for apple, b for ball etc. Book is imaginative and bright. Only thing not sure about is when baby was born, daddy said 'yummy'. Gave us adults a laugh. Beautiful book.
A lovely and educational gift for a little child, bright, colourful and cheery. I will prob order one again for another friends little boy.
Lightening Quick delivery. Superb Book. Highly recommend ;-). Will be buying more.
I think this is a beautiful gift and it's surprisingly actually better when you receive it than what you expect from the information given on the website.My grandmother saw it and bought one for a friends son immediately.I'm sure my friend's son will love this book and it will become one of those books you keep until you're an adult.One of the best gifts I have bought.
I have got this book for my niece and look forward to presenting it, Its bright and colourful, really nicely put together.
This is lovely. The story explains how mummy makes a journey and collects the letters in the chosen name. It's beautifully illustrated too. Only quibble is the phonics misrepresentation, the short 'i' sound is represented in the word 'ice' where it is long 'i'. Apart from that it's great!
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

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.
