I was really pleased to be asked to review this personalised Peppa Pig book from Penwizard as I’m always struggling to think of original gift ideas for my family and this would make a great gift for children to give to their mums for Mother’s Day (26 March 2017) or any other special occasion.
I found the whole process of ordering the book from the Penwizad website very simple. After choosing the book I had the option to add a personalised message of up to 100 characters, which is printed on the first page of the book and is a lovely addition for giving the book as a gift. I then had to personalise the mummy and children’s characters by choosing hair colour and style, eye colour and whether they would wear glasses or not. I also had to enter my children’s names. Up to two children can be included in the story which is ideal as I have two sons!
The checkout process was also quick and easy and I was very impressed at how quickly the book arrived after ordering and how securely it was packed.
The book itself is lovely quality, although a lot smaller than I had anticipated. It has a glossy hard cover and is very colourful throughout.
The book tells the story of Peppa Pig and her best friends, in our case Joseph and Samuel, talking about their mummies. They are mentioned by name on every page and their characters are shown in the pictures with Peppa and her family.
It’s a really lovely story and both my sons (aged 5 and 2) were really excited to see themselves in the book with Peppa and her family. My youngest son wanted to read the book over and over again which is a definite recommendation!
The book costs £14.99 + £2.50 postage, which is fairly expensive for a small book, but the book is so lovely that I would be happy to pay this for a gift for someone and I would be very happy to receive this from my boys for Mother’s Day. In fact, I’m already planning to order some of the other family member books as gifts from my sons for my mum and partner!
