Oana Iorga Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 3 Aug 2020

I placed an order with 'the book about you' product, which contains data and statistics about the year/month/decade of the person that it is addressed to. It was a nice surprise I did for a friend in Germany, as she could find out more things as she if she had been born in the UK :D I also gave 5 for customer service. Unfortunately, one of my orders to Romania didn't reach its destination :-( after more than 1 month since being placed.

As the title says it's a book all about you or about the person you have purchased the book for. It really is a unique present/gift that will guarantee to put a big smile on the face of the person receiving it.

RON REES Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 17 Aug 2019

Great service, good quality book, I am really pleased with the book.

Traci Thompson Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 14 Aug 2019

I was very happy with the book I purchased & how quickly it was made & posted to me. I thought the quality of the book was great and my son on receiving it was extremely happy. The only remarks I would perhaps make or suggest are firstly I feel the price is a bit steep for what you actually receive & I think I feel that way as there should be a bit more choice for the customer i.e the actual colour of the book & maybe a bit more choice/option of being able to add into the book a bit more of a personal touch from the customer about the person the book is being made for. The book is great for facts about the year and date the person was born etc but the only personal things about the recipient is 1 picture, name on front & front page & personal greeting from the sender with only a limited number of characters to be used and lastly the recipients name appears on the odd page throughout the book. The book is called “The book about you” so I feel that the customer should have some more options to actually add facts & or pictures about the person the book is being made for however even though I have made these suggestions I am very happy about the purchase and is a nice little keepsake (even if a bit too expensive for what it is).

Toy Story 3

We ordered this book for my grandsons birthday and it was delivered to us in less than a week. The name of my grandson was added within the story all the way through the which he was absolutely thrilled about and felt he was part of all the action. We were also able to add a message to him at the beginning. The quality of the book was excellent. We were very happy with the purchase and fully recommend you and your service.
