Pat Weaver Trustpilot product review 1 star rating 23 Nov 2020

It tells the story of the child going to a build a bear store and choosing a bear, stuffing it dressing it etc. All pretty pointless without the bear, so a complete waste of money. I even looked at buying the bear ready made, but the story then doesn't make sense. Not worth the money and an expensive mistake.

DEREK Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 8 Jul 2020

It was very cute, and seemed physically well crafted. It was a bit on the expensive side from a pure content perspective, as the book is short even for a child's book. However, it's still worth it for the charm and adorableness it charges forward with, especially when it stars your own furry friend.

Dinosaur book review

Really pleased with the personalised dinosaur book I had for my 1yr old neighbour! It’s so colourful and having his name everywhere possible is absolutely brilliant. I’m sure he will love it for many years to come.

Bruce Evans Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 14 Apr 2021

Excellent book including further items…

Excellent book including further items I was not expecting, but were brilliant and very exciting to read, my friend who I bought the book for was in tears reading it. Well worth it and would recommend it

Annette O Connor Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 14 Apr 2021

I bought 2 books for my grandchildren…

I bought 2 books for my grandchildren which I am delighted with. I love the personalisation of them. I knew they were going to be personalised but not to the extent that they were with their names on every page. The quality of the books is great as well. Each page is a lovely quality and hopefully childproof!! I received them very quickly in the post as well. I had both of them within 10 days and that included Easter and a weekend. Many thanks

Nice product but too late

The product is nice but the book arrived several days after the last delivery date it was supposed to (and without an apology or warning), so I missed occasion, despite having ordered it in plenty of time.

A special gift for the sports fan in your life

This is the second book I have bought as gifts and they have been a huge success. They are good quality, fast service and a very interesting different gift for an enthusiast.

Maureen Pringle Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 12 Apr 2021

Great book for a football fanatic!!

I love this book I've bought for my husband's 60th later this year who is Newcastle United mad!!!! My only criticism would be that when I placed my order and wrote what I wanted printed I tried to place it so it would be central, but, when it came one of the lines wasn't, thankfully it still looks ok but as a company I thought you would of automatically centralised the printing especially for the price! I bought the most expensive one saying as it's for a special birthday. Good quick service and well packaged though.
