What’s special about our books?


Our PERSONALISED BOOKS are totally unique because they have 3 very special features:

  1. A child’s name, where they live and their friend’s name all feature in the story. They won’t believe it when they see that their book is all about them!
  2. There are 2 bonus pages. One with a nice message on from the person giving the gift and another at the back of the book to record special moments & milestones.
  3. Each book comes with a certificate giving your child free, exclusive membership to our online Kids’ Club. With their special login code they can get access to lots of exciting printable activities.

This is not just a book, it is a unique keepsake gift providing hours of fun & endless special moments that can be then kept safely in their memory box to look back on in years to come.

Our BABY RECORD BOOK is unique because…

  1. it is full of beautiful poetry as well as having sections to record precious childhood milestones and memories.
  2. The poetry is about lots of different parenting topics with a relevant section to fill in after each poem.
  3. It is heartfelt and funny and has literally brought people to tears and made them laugh out loud.
  4. We understand that it is very easy to forget to fill these books in when you are in the throes of early parenthood. Because of this, we have made it as easy as possible by not asking for information at specific times. Lets face it, most of us can’t even remember what we did last week never mind what our child was doing at 2/3/4 months old!

Who are the books for?

Our personalised books are for children up to the age of 6 years old.
There is a special, printed message from you on the first page making them a perfect and relevant gift for every occasion. They even make a beautiful New Baby or Christening gift because there is also a special page to record precious moments & milestones throughout the child’s early life.

Our baby record books make a beautiful new baby or Christening gift for parents. If you want a gift that has an impact and evokes emotion then this is the one for you!

Can I customise the characters in the personalised books?

No, our books are personalised with a child’s name, their friend’s name and where they live, not their appearance. We also offer a choice of 3 different skin tones in our new superhero books for that extra personalisation.
