poor qulity for a personalised book

  • In the Book Team 21 Nov 2018

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear that you feel this way in regards the Book received.

    From looking into your order notes I can see that you have spoken with a member of the customer service team in regards to this. With the Book received this is licensed by Ladybird therefore the story is as the original was written and we have the license to add the your chosen name on the front cover and a special message on the inside. On the website we have a Flip Through to see the story before purchase.

    We do appreciate you taking your time to review the Book and we value your feedback.

Being able to personalise the book makes the gift extra special

fatbird Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 29 Aug 2018

Very good in the main although it assumes all husbands like DIY and football. Illustrations are great and it brings back memories of the original books.

Jaskenyellow Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

What a funny read, my husband loved his book and can't wait for a new one to comes out.

Ian1970 Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 29 Aug 2018

Personalised Ladybird Book which had the same charm, feel and quality of the originals. Personalisation was extremely good not only on front cover and spine but on various items within the illustrations, E.g. Cake on Table had the Person's Name on it, but not just the one item/page but several occurrences. Also option to insert personal message in front pages. Price possibly a little more than would ordinarily pay but the appreciation on the face on the recipient was worth that little extra I would suggest, can't really put a value on that. Really easy to order deal with supplier. Very Unique gift, well worth it overall.

Bluedegu Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Aug 2018

I bought 'The Husband' Ladybird book as a gift for my husband on our first wedding anniversary. It is great quality and each page is an amusing take on the role of the husband. Would definitely recommend. We have enjoyed reading it.

Bought this as a part of a first (paper) anniversary gift for my husband. He thought it was funny then noticed it was personalised and thought it was even funnier! Definitely a good shout ?

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.

Adam Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 29 May 2020

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

Tammi Clark Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 May 2020

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.
