Penwizard Personalised Books – a review

You all know I have a little book-worm here, I’m so pleased that a 4 year old Monkey still loves books.  I’ll often catch him having a quiet five minutes looking through a book, putting a story to the pictures.  Penwizard Personalised books offered me the chance to give Monkey something a little bit special.  A book where he features heavily in the story line.

Penwizard Personalised books have a lovely range of books available for younger.  I asked Monkey which book he liked the look of – Peppa Pig? Ben and Holly?  He loves watching both programmes, but then we spotted our ‘must have’ book.  We went for the Roary the Racing Car book – big Formula One fans, new season just begun. No contest!

Monkey was offer to Silver Hatch with Roary the Racing Car!  The paperback 24 page book is really easy to personalise.  You add your child’s first and last name, select the relevant hair colour and style, skin tone, eye colour and glasses if relevant.  It takes seconds.  Then add a personal message.

Penwizard Personalised BooksPress enter, and your selection from Penwizard Personalised books is ready.  The books are priced at £14.99 and free delivery is available for orders over £35.00.  Delivery is very prompt, so great if you have a birthday in mind.

When Monkey’s personalised book arrived he couldn’t wait for me to read him the story. I’ve covered Monkey’s real name with a red arrow in these photos! before you think they look a bit strange.

Penwizard Personalised BooksDaddy P had no idea that I’d arranged for this book to be produced, or that you could personalise the features of the character too.  His first words were, wow, that actually looks like Monkey.  Ah, yes, that’s the point!  Clever.

Monkey’s name features throughout the story, we’ve seen personalised books before where the child is mentioned a couple of times.  But with the Penwizard Personalised books, your child really is centre stage.

Penwizard Personalised BooksMonkey was so thrilled to be in a story with Roary, Tin Top and Big Chris.  He thought it was really funny.  The actual story being told is entertaining and features all of the characters Monkey loves from the TV programme.  The book has been well produced and would make a great addition to any bookcase.

With this term’s theme at Nursery School of Castles, Kings and so on, the Personalised Knight Book would also have been a great option here.

About over40andamumtoone

I’m a first time, full time Mum in my 40′s. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. We’ve had a busy 3 years so far, but now as Monkey has started pre-school I’ve decided to start a blog about our journey and experiences from here on in. We also have a kitten called Brewster who will be making appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari F1 fan, so am sure that will slip in to the blog too. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
