The boys love books, if they find a book they love then we are guaranteed to read them over, and over, and over again….
A few weeks ago I started having a chat with the super nice Fiona from Bobadeg. She has a range of personalised kids’ books. As she knew I was in middle of potty training the monkeys, she offered to send me two personalised books, on the subject matter of poo.
I knew that the boys would love this, what with poo being their favourite topic at the moment. Well, that and Star Wars. So I didn’t hesitate in saying yes. I just needed to provide a photo of the boys so she could create the books.
Before I go on to the review of the books, here is a little bit about the company. Fiona is the founder of the company, which is based in the UK. She has developed a range of fun and educational, personalised books for children aged five and under. The aim is for each product to provide a unique learning adventure, personalised for the child making them feel special.
Fiona says: “All of our books can be personalised with your child’s photo and name. A number of our customers comment on how proud their child or grandchild feels when they receive their book and how often they go back to it once they have received it.”
So onto the review. I was so impressed with the glossy design when I opened the envelope. The book is really good quality and made of tough material. This is so important as my boys have a tendency to accidentally rip books, a habit that drives me mad! I think they would be hard pushed to do that with these. It also means the books are very durable, designed to be read and re-read over and over again.
The pictures on the books were bright, colourful and eye-catching with an easy to read font.
Onto the subject matter. The book follows the monkeys on their own personal adventure discovering various animals’ poo along the way. Eventually ending up in their own toilet and, most importantly, washing hands afterwards. The book is funny and perfect for nearly four-year-old’s who find anything to do with poo hilarious! From a parental perspective, I liked important message about washing hands afterwards. It was a well-thought out addition and something that I am constantly going on about to the boys.
So what did the boys think of the books?
Bob L: “Good and funny mummy”
Bob D: “its all about poo, elephant poo is the best!! I want to read it again” **** Giggles uncontrollably ***
I have to point out at this stage that the boys have read these books over and over again since we received them. They are a huge hit and often have the boys in fits of giggles.
On the back of each book, there are examples of some more adventures that the boys could go on, they were particularly interested in the book where they can fight dragons!
I would highly recommend these books and starting from £9.99, they are a great price. I think these would make a really lovely idea for a present as well, particularly as each book is personalised.
How do you order?
You can order through their website: www.bobadeg.com. Once you have selected a book, pick a size and fill in the personalisation boxes so that they have the child’s first name, the message that you want to appear on the inside cover of the book and upload a photo. Then just add to the cart and go to checkout. Simple, quick and easy!
I want to thank Fiona for giving me the opportunity to review these lovely books, the boys love them.
