Although the centenary books were of a reasonable quality and went down well as Christmas gifts, my experience wasn't great. Having ordered 2 books, only 1 was dispatched and I had to chase the 2nd one. No explanation offered as to what had happened .Although this issue was resolved, when ordering online the ability to execute an order and get it right first time is just as important as the product.
The order was late and they had given a week delivery slot which is pretty bad. The book arrived with a dog eared corner and a crease down the spine. It’s a flimsy quality that will tear easily along the spine if bent the wrong way. I have bought this for a 1 year old first birthday and I don’t know if they will be able to play with it. Please trust the reviews and stay away!! The products are overpriced and poor quality. I don’t usually leave reviews but felt the need to on here.

Grandson's football book!
I bought the football book for my Grandson. Despite being under three and therefore not yet able to read he has enjoyed the pictures and having the story read to him with his name.
