This is such a wonderful journal, it’s an item that will be treasured greatly! I was very impressed at the originality and interestingness of the questions asked too. Things like "Describe something you still want to achieve in your life . . .” or "Before I was born, what other names had you thought of calling me?” I think it’s also very good how all of the questions asked relate to other members of the family too, so then everyone can get involved! The quality is fantastic for the price; I didn’t expect it to be this good! I am sure that this will last for a very long time and I can’t wait to give this to Charming when she is old enough to take care of it and appreciate it properly. I am definitely going to buy others from the website because I think it’s such a lovely idea! Overall, this is a wonderful product that will be passed on for years.

My first impressions were very good. The journal was packaged wonderfully, and had a great quality feel to it. I found the website simple to use thanks to the clean layout and I was impressed with the range of unique products available, and all at good prices too! The journal is of lovely quality, its hardback and the papers inside are lovely to write on, it doesn’t feel cheap and thin. The questions in the diary are quite thoughtful and thorough too; I expected brief and predictable questions but there were a lot of things in there that I would never have thought of. I am really looking forward to filling this out and giving it to Allison when she is a little older; I am positive that this will be a really lovely thing for her to keep forever. It’s also a great way to interact children with other family members, through stories brought up by the questions that they answer in the journal. Overall, a wonderful idea that will be treasured for a very long time. Leslie Marrogan – Allison 9 Months

The journal was well packaged, well presented and seems like a good quality product. The idea behind the journal is lovely. Good website – simple to navigate and a good range of products. The website also has a simple pricing structure (all one price) and it is easy to find contact details for company. As well as the "family” range of journals there is the option for alternative types of journal such as a journal with recipes from loved ones in it along with anecdotes regarding the recipes and authors etc. The journal is good quality. Nice hardback book with good binding and good quality paper. As well as many predictable questions there are many questions that I wouldn’t have thought of but which will make the journal a much more personal gift when Anna is old enough to appreciate it. It’s a lovely idea for relatives of a child to record facts & feelings about themselves and their life. It is very much a long term gift as it will be of more interest the child as they get older. The journal has a very straightforward and simple layout i.e. each question has a blank page for the answer. I feel there are a couple of possible improvements though. Firstly a good quality spiral binding would make it easier to use in a practical sense in that it would be easier to write in as it could lay flat. The other thing that I thought would widen the appeal would be if there was the option to complete the entries on a website and then for them to be printed off when complete. This would give the option to insert digital photos for example and also would mean that additional pages/questions could be inserted to make a more customised journal. This could probably work alongside the hard copy version as different users would have different preferences as to how they would like to use it. This would make a lovely and unusual christening gift. It’s also a nice gift to give to grandparents from the child. Although they would give it back when complete many would enjoy completing it and sharing their precious memories. The price seems to be pitched reasonably well – not expensive enough to put me off but expensive enough that a quality product is presented. I have already told several friends about this and Anna’s Granddad has been given his copy to complete. I had never heard of this product before reviewing but I am very impressed with it, have enjoyed using it and will definitely purchase more. Janet West – Anna 9 Months
