Excellent but a bit expensive. Service was excellent - ordered 3 Sep and arrived 7 Sep.
Big sister in this case, who’s 5, was delighted with her book and loved seeing her name on every page. She was amazed to find her photo (holding her new baby sister) on the last page within a week of baby’s arrival. She kept thanking me for her “amazing” and “brilliant” book so, in that respect, the cost of the book was worth it.

Very pleased with the quality. Opted for the soft cover and it is a great, slim book.Special for the sister to be able to find the name on each page, like a mini treasure hunt within the story.

DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!
DONT DO BUILD A BEAR U ONLY THE BOOK!! SCAM
wasted 28 pound on this for my sons birthday very disappointed and angry.
Would not recommend to anyone.
Very arrogant on the phone when calling to ask about the item. And email reply wasn't any better.
Save your money and either build a bear on the website or go elsewhere like etsy or not on the highstreet.
If i could minuses stars I would as even 1 is to much

The book itself is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully illustrated. I couldn’t upload a photo onto the website, it kept sticking, so I ordered the book on a bank holiday Friday evening and it was confirmed at 2000h same night.
I e mailed in the book with a photo attached the following morning Saturday at 0730h and asked if anything could possibly be done to attach it. I received a reply that it was too late, already in production, nothing could be done. In 12hrs ? I was really disappointed - I wish I had contacted CS before placing my original order.
Also I assumed Alice would somehow be woven into the stories as advertised “in the books” other stories but The Ultimate Princess Collection does not offer this. Your child’s name appears on the top of each page but they are actually not IN the stories.
If I ordered again I would be much more aware of what is actually on offer.
In The Book does not mean IN every story, so read carefully before ordering as I’m sad to say I didn’t do.

A great cover and fronts piece.
A great cover and fronts piece.
However, Some of the early pages were unreadable even with glasses and a magnifying glass in use. Some of the pages of the 1960s were unreadable as well, and one was even shown to be torn and disheveled as if lifted from a dustbin.

The child's name only appears on the opening page of each story. Other companies replace the name of the character in the story with the child's name.
The format and quality of the book prints and presentation are good.

Very disappointed in this book for so much money - unfortunately I believed my granddaughter would appear in the story not just at the top of the pages - feel as if I’ve been conned!
