My 1st Photo Fabric Photo Album Reviews

Product Tested By Gemma Monaghan – Amelia 1 year

Gemma Awarded The Medium My 1st Photos Album 5/5

I was extremely impressed when the photo album arrived! What stood out was the quality of the photographs on the material, and how clear they were – having seen other similar products I was expecting slightly blurred images and this was not the case at all! The album is a brilliant size to enable Amelia to hold and explore, but still provides photos that are large enough to recognise faces. The design is great! Due to a large family, I provided ‘collage’ style photos so that everyone could be featured, and this worked extremely well with the text – the resulting product is one we cherish! Submitting the order was easier on a laptop – I initially tried on a phone but found it quite difficult to navigate photo uploading with associated text. There was a small problem with some of my uploads, but the company got in touch proactively and resolved it speedily, professionally and friendly! I genuinely couldn’t fault the customer service in any way. The initial order placed said approximately 10 days, if I remember, but the product arrived 2 days after the order, which was amazing! Absolutely enjoyed creating this. We have printed photo books for Amelia to look at when she is older of things she did and memories created, but having something for her to have now is very special. Also, given the last 16 months, Amelia has not met a lot of her family as they live across the UK, so it was even more special to be able to have her hold the pictures of loved ones and give them cuddles and kisses. More than happy; it’s definitely a special thing to have and I would definitely buy it for another family as a cherished present. I am genuinely impressed with the quality of the fabric and the quality and clarity of the photos printed on the fabric. My daughter loves it,  the size is perfect for handling and the pages thick enough that she can grip them and turn them individually. For the family she recognises, she smiles and pulls the book towards her face like she’s hugging them – it’s very precious! Absolutely great it can be chewed, scrunched and cleaned. At 1, she has no concept of what she can / cannot eat, and explores using everything she can, including her mouth. Knowing that she can safely have the book and chew on it is great, and even better that it can be cleaned up using some antibacterial wipes I have only had to wipe it clean from the odd mucky hand or baby slobber, but the book has come up in perfect condition every time it’s been wiped. I loved how vivid the colours are in the photos and the clarity of the faces in the photos – how well the colours have transferred and Amelia seeing the faces so clearly make it more engaging and she laughs when she sees people she has met, which is lovely. I also like the selection of the font – very clear and good text size for reading to. Both great to look at and in terms of quality of materials used. I think initially £35 may seem like a lot, but it is something that she can keep forever, and most other baby gifts like nice clothing, a good quality toy/teddy would be a similar cost and doesn’t have the sentimental value or the longevity. I would buy this as I think it’s a lovely thing for Amelia to have now and in the future. I would recommend not only for the product, its quality, and value for money, but also for the amazing customer service received regarding submitting the order online and the proactive communication regarding its dispatch. Other than the slight blip in ordering the product online, I cannot fault the product! I am extremely impressed with the product, and most importantly, Amelia engages with it and it makes her smile, which is so special to see. It is a beautiful way to capture friends and family that she hasn’t met yet, and also for those that she has but as a daily reminder of their faces and smiles. The quality of the fabric and clarity of photos was above my expectation. I’m not sure if it’s possible, or would impact the quality, but having something within the pages that created a noise (like scrunching) I think would be a great additional feature for young ones. Any mark we’ve experiences has come off easily and the product looks great even after lots of use! The customer service cannot be faulted in any way, and I would definitely recommend.

I was really impressed by the quality of the pictures on the material and the quality of product overall, there were no loose threads or white parts on the pictures. I thought the design was really well thought out and looks really effective. I thought the book was really easy to order online and the process was simple and clear, page by page help and it was easy to add text/photo. From placing the order to receiving the order the process was completed within a week. I really enjoyed making the photo album, although I personally struggled with what photos to select, I wasn’t sure if it should be a “journey” book or a fun picture book. We went for fun in the end. I was really happy with the final result when it arrived, really good quality picture and sewing. A lot of effort and thought has gone into the end product and it shows. My little girl loves looking through the book and telling us who all the people are in it, she loves to show off to people when they come round. I liked the fact that the book could be left with little one safe in the knowledge it wasn’t going to be broken or damaged. This product is easy to clean and comes back to original quality once washed. I loved my little girls face when she saw herself and family in the book, the high quality of the printed images really help to make the book appealing to little people. I think this product is of high quality and has been lovingly made to order, with attention paid to ensure no loose threads or spoiled images. I think that this is a good price for the product and provides good value for money. I would consider buying this product, my little girl has really enjoyed making her own story up for the photos. I would recommend this product to friends and family as it is a nice item for little ones to play with, and then to keep as a momentum once they have finished playing. I had a really good customer service from Nadine and she was very polite and helpful. I had a really good experience from start to finish with this product, my main problem was selecting which photos to include, we went for a fun themed book with lots of pictures to help encourage my little girls speech. Nadine was helpful and friendly when in contact and the book arrived quickly and came in a nice black envelope which stood out from “normal” post. Being able to choose from pictures/text gave the freedom to create a book that was fit for our personal needs and the pictures look really good. Bethan Lloyd – Poppy 2 Years

Product Tested By Vicki Marler-Hausen – Max 4 Months

Vicki Awarded The Medium My 1st Photos Album 3.4/5

The album arrived in a lovely package and I was impressed when I opened it as it was great to feel the quality of the material it is made from, something you can’t really appreciate until it’s in your hands.  It was also lovely to be reminded of how little my baby was when he was born when I saw the photos I had chosen in all their glory. The printing came out better than I was expecting too. I made a simple album, just one page of text at the beginning and the rest filled with photos of my son’s first few days with us.  I do think the cover is a bit plain which is a shame. For me it would be more appealing if you could add a photo of your baby to the front or change the font type or colour of your baby’s name so it is a bit more unique.  Adding some colour and extra elements might make a baby want to explore it a bit more.  I also think adding a hangtag would be really useful so the album can be easily attached to a car seat or bag for taking on our travels. It may have been the web browser I was using – I tried Chrome and Safari for creating the album – but I had a few issues with the uploading of the photos.  I also couldn’t see how to do a collage of photos so in the end just picked one photo per page.  Maybe I had to create the collage myself and upload as one image, but I couldn’t see any instructions. As a new Mum I just didn’t have the time to be that creative and make my own to upload.  When I do a photobook usually, I like to go back to it several times before pressing the order button.  I left my album overnight but my laptop must’ve done an update so I lost the pages and had to start again.  An ability to save a draft and come back to it later would be helpful. The website says to expect delivery in 2-3 weeks which would usually deter me, especially if I was ordering for a gift and I needed it more quickly.  But I understand it’s an independent business and the albums are made to order, so it is good they are honest and customers know how long it will take. Delivery of our album did take some time, but the lovely Nadine emailed to explain the delay so that was good customer service. I actually found it a little stressful designing the album and dealing with the upload issues whilst having a very young baby at home.  I don’t think I put enough care and attention into putting together a really lovely keepsake for my son, but that’s all down to me and juggling too many things as a new mum.  Choosing 9/10 photos out of the hundreds I have was also a challenge!  I’d have liked to include more family photos too, but as he was born in lockdown we didn’t have those family moments to include. The album really is lovely and we keep it in my son’s box of toys so we have easy access to it and can show him his newborn photos as and when we feel like taking that trip down memory lane with him.  I think we will show him more when he’s older though to see his reactions and talk him through it.  He was poorly in hospital for a few days when he was born so I’ve included some photos which will give us a story to tell him later. He has taken some interest in looking at the photos and can turn the pages on his own.  It will mean a lot more to see him with it when he is older and see how he recognises himself and his mummy and daddy.  The fact it can be chewed, scrunched and cleaned is a great bonus.  The material is perfect for it.  They have identified a gap in the market and created a really lovely album for babies to enjoy without spoiling precious photos. We have not had to wash this yet, but I am sure it will be fine in the wash as it’s one of their key selling points! I most liked the lovely material it is made from and how soft it is to the touch. The quality is excellent and you can tell they are made with love. Sadly I think the album is very expensive and this is what lets it down for me.  Whilst I appreciate they are handmade and a lovely keepsake, I would not pay £35 for the medium size album for just 10 pages.  I also note the price has now gone up even more. My son actually has a lot of fabric books to play with that are more colourful and make noise, so these get chosen ahead of the photo album as they keep him engaged for longer. I feel the keepsake side of My First Photo Album is more for the parents to get sentimental as the babies are too young to really understand. I would also personally rather spend that money on a traditional photobook. I sadly would not buy it as it’s just far too expensive for a baby gift/toy.  I do love the concept so would happily recommend new parents take a look at the idea and make up their own minds regarding the cost. If someone visits us now we are out of lockdown and comments on my son’s album, then I will direct them to the website without hesitation.  I want to score it more highly as it’s a lovely idea to give babies photos to look at and play with in such a unique way, but the cover design could be more appealing, the creation process could be better and the price is just too high for what you get. It was lovely reading the story of how My First Photo Album came to be and I think it’s a wonderful idea, especially creating something so personal with precious photos that babies can’t spoil. I will enjoy showing my son his newborn photos in his bespoke album that he can also play with, but I do think that I will be the one looking at it more over the next few months as I’ll be the more sentimental one!  Vicki Marler-Hausen – Max 4 Months
