When I was a child I used to love receiving gifts with my name on, now I am a parent I love buying personalised gifts for my children as I feel they are more special. Since starting my blog and joining twitter I have discovered some rather lovely company's who make personalised children's gifts and one of these company's, Pop goes your Name contacted me on twitter and kindly asked if I would like to review a personalised children's CD.
Pop goes your Name is a new family run company based in Hertfordshire which was set up by parents Lucy and Richard after the birth of there son Noah. Richard is actually from Durham, in the North East which makes the company even more likeable to me, as I love supporting small family run and local company's, plus they are really nice friendly people. They sell personalised CD's for young children which are a mix of upbeat pop type songs and nursery rhymes, each song has the child's name in it throughout.
You can buy the CDs from the website www.popgoesyourname.com where they currently have 800 children's name to choose from, if they don't have your child's name you can fill in a form on their website and they will record it for you next time they are in the studio. Or if they do not have your child's name spelt the way you spell it they will change the spelling on the CD for you, which is a nice touch.
We received the CD for Sophia, who is just over one year old and it arrived really quick within a couple of days in a case with her name on the front. There are 12 songs on the CD and they are all upbeat, catchy songs that toddlers will love. When Sophia heard her name in the first song her little face lit up and she was soon bopping along dancing away to the tunes. Her favourites songs of the CD were 'wiggle time' and 'your song' as she seemed to dance non stop to these.
The CD has fantastic sound quality and the tunes are really catchy, I am sure every toddler will love them. After a few listens I even found myself singing along, they really are so catchy and uplifting.
Would I recommend this CD? Yes, I would as they are a perfect mix of songs for young children and they have the child's name throughout each song which will delight the listener. The quality of the CD is faultless and I personally think that these CD's are a brilliant idea.
As I mentioned before the CDs are available to buy from www.popgoesyourname.com and are priced at £12.95, which is what you would pay for a CD in the shops. I think they are good value as they are personalised and I normally expect to pay more for personalised products. With Christmas fast approaching these would make great gifts for young children and are a nice change from the usual Christmas presents that children receive,
Disclosure: I was kindly sent a CD free of charge from Pop goes your Name for the purpose of this review, however, all opinions and words in this post are my own.
