Good idea as a gift but the quality is not strong enough and the price is too high just for personalising the book.

Thank you for your review.
We are so sorry to hear of your disappointment
All our books are made with 120gsm high grade printing paper, which is ideal for printing purposes. We are unable to locate any communication to our Customer Service Team from you in regards to the issue with the quality.
In regards to price, the personalisation make it more unique which does make it more expensive than just a generic book. However it also includes the materials to make your item, the machines to print the pages on and the staff to make put your book together.
If you need to contact the customer service team, please do on 0330 058 0403 or email@example.com
Love love love this gift! I gave it to my 2 year old baby niece as her birthday present and she loves it! Yes it's a bit pricey but the memories it'll bring reading to her are priceless. So well worth it I'd say.

Lovely idea but the book is very small…
Lovely idea but the book is very small and thin. Thankfully Groupon sold it as a steal!!!..
Won’t be buying this again. I had to buy several other items, for a child’s 2nd birthday, just so I wasn’t embarrassed.

Disney Princesses tales of bravery…
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.
