I remember as a kid I had a Christmas book which was personalized for me with my name in it and information such as friends’ names, my address, details on me etc and I remember thinking how amazing it was, especially as I have quite an unusual name. I think personalized items are great whether you’re a child or an adult so when Lostmy.Name contacted me and asked me I wanted to receive some of their kid’s books* I automatically thought my of my friend’s little boys and jumped at the chance.
Lostmy.Name do two styles of books ‘The little boy who lost his name’ alongside ‘The little girl who lost her name’ and ‘The intergalactic space adventure’. The first one is aimed at slightly younger kids aged 0-8 as it features brighter colours, animal images and a shorter story where as the space adventure one is aimed at ages 3-10.
The books are personalized with the kids names and the space adventure one goes even further to make it truly unique. The story follows a little explorer from outer space right to their front door and it includes a satellite view of their actual neighborhood including their address on it so it really connects the kids with the book as it’s about their own home.
Normally you’d expect personalized items to take a week or so to create and get to you, but from the point of making my order I received both books within 2 days which is incredible considering they’re specifically printed to your specifications including choosing the image used as the kid within the books. Considering the books retail at the reasonable price of £19.99 each I was impressed at the quality of them; the images are vibrant and the books feel durable (important when kids are handling them). Ever since making the order I swear I have noticed the brand everywhere from adverts on the tube to an advert on TV the other day, so strange!
For now the books are packed up ready to give to my friends’ two lovely boys for Christmas and I can’t wait to find out what they think of them.
