If you're stuck for what to buy as kids' birthday presents, or looking for something wow to add to your child's bookshelf, or just wanting a special keepsake, then check out the Amazing Alphabet from Tinyme. It's a beautiful and fun personalised book that can be ordered online, and which features your child as the central character.
The beautifully illustrated book teaches kids the letters of the alphabet, or reinforces them when they're a little older. My seven-year-old knows how to read and write well, but still benefitted from the book – not only from seeing his name in a book, but learning new words as the book is full of rich and wonderful words.
But wait… there's more. The book is complemented by a great free app (for iOS or Android), which, when used alongisde the book, brings images to life with popup 3D animations, and music and sound that "jump" out from the pages. The app can also read the story to your child.
Interestingly, Tinyme is run by three dads, who have 15 kids between them. They also have an incredible range of personalised stationery, bags, photo products, labels, bags and more.
The Amazing Alphabet costs 30 Australian dollars, and around 10 dollars in shipping.
