Can't praise this company enough. Excellent customer service. They were very prompt in replying to email as l had made an error with my order. Everything was sorted out swiftly. They kept in touch by email and l was thrilled with my order when it arrives. Would definitely recommend.
Unfortunately it took three attempts to receive an item that still is nothing remotely resembling the item that was advertised or that I ordered. Would not recommend, which is a shame because the item advertised looked good. But the three items received were incorrect. I gave up in the end.

Prompt replies for queries
Prompt replies for queries. Should allow for two names (like for twins) for personalisation. allow tracked services for standard delivery as well.

Ideal for 6 year old boy
Ideal for 6 year old boy, less so for 9 year elder brother, although children differ so that's no more than a guide. Being named on every page especially compelling for the younger.
