Frecklebox Personalized Storybook Review and Giveaway

Children absolutely adore seeing their name in print, which means you can never go wrong with personalized children’s gifts. Frecklebox has one of the largest selections of personalized kid’s products including everything from personalized school supplies and lunchboxes to growth charts and room decor to coloring books, party supplies, puzzles and so much more.

Frecklebox-StorybooksMy husband and I named our son Ayden which happens to be a very popular name, however the spelling we chose seems to be the least popular spelling choice. I am always on the lookout for cute personalized things for him, but the spelling is always “Aidan”, “Aiden”, or something similar. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review a personalized gift from Frecklebox. Ayden’s favorite activity is reading. We lucked out because Frecklebox has such a wonderful selection of personalized story books, twelve titles to be exact.

When I Grow Up Childrens Book All of their storybooks can be personalized to include a child’s name, a dedication and I noticed several books also allow you to personalize the book right down to the city the child lives in. I decided on the book, “When I Grow Up.” This 16-page book features a child’s name throughout the book. The story begins with a Teacher asking the student (or your child’s name) what they would like to be when they grow up. They discuss several different professions in which the child’s name is displayed on the back of a fireman’s uniform, a police car, a doctor’s office sign, an airplane, a veterinarian's office sign, a zoo gate and even in the clouds. Ayden has enjoyed hearing his name throughout this book, but his favorite thing to do is point out the objects on each page. It has been a great learning experience for him and he has even learned several new words! 

I loved the fact that Frecklebox offers a preview feature when shopping through their personalized children’s books. I was able to read the entire story before prior to ordering to assure this was the right book for us. I was also able to view all of the sections where my son’s name would be printed.

Personalized Story Book

The Story Books are available in both soft cover and hard cover. We chose the hard cover which is perfect for younger children because it’s very sturdy and durable. The Hard Cover Storybook covers are printed on matte label and adhered to 100pt. chipboard with a laminated finish. The interior of the book is printed on 100# gloss text and measures 8” x 8”.

“When I Grow Up” is such an adorable book! The illustrations are bold, full of bright colors and elaborate. Ayden enjoys his new book and it’s one of my new favorites. I’m actually considering purchasing a duplicate so that we have one to read daily and one to put away as a keepsake!

Whether you are looking for a special gift for your child, or shopping for friends or relatives, Frecklebox is a great place to find unique personalized gifts that are guaranteed to create smiles and lasting memories.

  2. I love personalized gifts to receive and also to give. What a great idea to personalize a story book! My 2 year old daughter Ahrya (also an uncommon spelling) would love to have a story about her! Thanks for the great review!

  3. personalized storybooks are so satisfying to kids! My kids just love seeing their name in print

  4. thanks for the review. my two year old grandson duran is not a common name either. mine wasn't either growing up. i always felt so cheated!!!! love that frecklebox has these books & other personalized items!

  5. Frecklebox has a very nice selection of personalized gifts for children. Like you, I could not find my granddaughter's name on items that are personalized. I'm saving Frecklebox's site. Thanks for review!

  6. What a great idea! I am going to order these as Christmas gifts for my kids and nieces and nephews. I think personalized gifts are great and books even better. My kids love to read and my youngest 5 is just learning and would get a kick out of seeing his name in a book.

  7. It is great that you can preview the entire book prior to ordering. I did not realize that. I thought you could only preview the cover.
