My children range from 2 to 8 years old so this was great for all of them to either watch or be hands on using the computer/touch screen. My 5 year old son was the main character in the story and he said this made him feel really special and 'like a star'. We read the story together and he enjoyed using the mouse to turn the pages. Then he showed his older soster and brother thr story and the other interactive parts on the cd-rom. They all thoroughly enjoyed using all features.
My eldest son asked if he could use it for his computer, which is a notebook so unfortunately it doesnt have a disc drive only USB.
Overall, as a parent, I found this cd-rom to be great educational fun. Teaching children to read, to use theire computer skills and to double as a gift, is a winner.
Thank you, the personalised beach towels and beach bags were so beautiful. Kids are so happy with them. Your fast responsive customer service was so impressive. I will definitely buy again.
My 4 year old loves this, but unfortunately we can only play it at Grandma's house as it's not compatible with our Mac! The Xmas special of $15 is awesome! (Just email the code word READING for the discount). I love that it is self personalising & can add my child's friends names as well. My daughter thought it was great and loved the farm theme. I enjoyed reading and playing it with her too, as did my 2 year old
FABULOUS! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
These self personalising CDs are absolutely magic for our son, who is 6, had no trouble whatsoever in entering the names of 3 of his friends. And they enjoyed the story. There was 3 levels of reading to do. So our younger children enjoyed the juvenile text and story, while the older ones enjoyed and recorded the efforts of observing on the playback and the manner in which their reading skills sounded. Highly educational, ideal for 6+.
My boy was surprised that his name was in the story. He enjoyed the animations the most but he got bored. It was too hard for him to read alone so i read it to him. Its not something he would go to on his own so would be something we could do together at bedtime
I just wanted to let you know that I gave the CD to my Grandson for his 1st Birthday on the weekend and he loved it. He kept looking around each time his name was spoken on the CD lol...
So thank you once again!
When my son received the personalised CD-ROM, he was very happy and wanted to play it straight away. I really love the idea of creating a personalised CD-ROM for growing kids who are older than 4 years. It's obvious that my son adored being in a story with his friends. The animation featured in the story was perfect, it assisted in the interaction with the kids who were responding and enjoying it. Through having exposure to the CD-ROM, kids could improve their reading skills as well as computer skills.
I bought some real good products on this site. Excellent customer service and products are real value for money.
My 2 girls 5 and 7 loved this product. It was great because they could both be in the story, plus have a friend each. They really enjoyed the personalisation so they felt they were part of the story. Especially my youngest as we have difficulty finding books that have her name in it.
They found it easy enough to navigate with my guidance. They are both becoming more interested in using the computer so this was a great treat for them.
It was educational and fun!
Our books were a huge success. Marcelle was amazing. She was patient, accommodating, caring and obliging of my needs. I order over 20 stories as gifts for my daughters 2nd birthday. Marcelle helped me get the books exactly right and worked with me until I was happy. The children and adults who received a copy loved them. They were a real hit, so much so I had to order a few more for guests that wanted another copy. I love the way I could personalise each story and include my daughters name in each guests book. They were great quality and definitely something I would order again. Thanks Marcelle 👐 ten out of ten.
My Daughters can't believe it...this is Fantastic! I am a single Dad taking care of my 4 and 6 year old girls. They have loved every book we purchased from Personalised Gifts. They spend hours reading now and look forward to reading the stories to their friends. Whoever created these books, must of had my family in mind I thank Personalised Gifts from the bottom of my heart. Rob, Jenna and Victoria
Thank you so much for managing to print and send my tea towel so quickly! Great customer service, I will definitely recommend personalised gifts to anyone.
Thanks and I much appreciate your express service, the gift is amazing! Wish you lot of business in the future
EXCELLENT FOR THE CHILDREN! With the continuation of birthday's coming up with my 5 grandchildren I have been more than happy with the personalised books I have purchased and they are all very different stories. Highly recommend. Their faces light up when I present them and it looks like I am special for doing so!
