Anywho, unless your name is Henry, Michael, Ashley or Samantha, it's hard to find such personalized items. (Disclaimer- I have nothing against any of these names) But then, you happen to come across a great company, a company called "Frecklebox."
Frecklebox makes personalized items for kids. For all kids. Kids named Henry, Michael, Ashley, Samantha AND kids named Saxon, Stephano, Tatiana, or Desiree. Plus every other name in between.
Even better, Frecklebox makes fun, EDUCATIONAL items for kids. I had the opportunity to create and review a personalized book from Frecklebox. Their site is quite easy to navigate, you create your book on the site and see the pages transform before your eyes into a lovely story all about your special kid.
The book I chose was the "My Name Is..." personalized hard cover book. I'm not sure who was more excited to see the book, me or my little one! The graphics in these books are beautiful! The colors are bright and vibrant.
Her name is featured in unique ways on every other page! This book is definitely a keepsake. The story is just precious. My little one loved it because she loved to see and hear her name. When she is a bit older and knows her letters and how to spell her name, I know that she will love it even more.
Although "My Name Is..." did not replace our nightly reading of "Goodnight Moon" (DARN!), it did get added to the list of "Books to read EVERY night BEFORE reading Goodnight Moon."
Frecklebox has several great stories to choose from, all of which can be printed in paperback or hardcover. Additionally, they also have coloring books, posters, journal books, placemats, growth charts and party favors. Recently they have added personalized puzzles and stickers as well.
If you're looking for a lovely personalized children's gift that will be treasured for years to come, I implore you to visit Frecklebox and take a look at all they have to offer!
As a special gift for my readers, Mark over at Frecklebox has agreed to give one of you lucky peeps a free personalized gift!
