I See Me Book & Blanket Review

I have an awesome product to tell you about, but I bet alot of you have seen them already and that is the new personalized blanket and personalized book from I See Me! company that does an awesome job when it comes to cranking out some great stories in the book featuring one of your children as the hero/heroine of the day!

Now, they have added a nice touch, a soft and beautiful blanket to cuddle with! This book is about Who Loves Me? and all throughout the book it answers that question with the names that you supply them prior to them publishing the book. We have a new niece in the family (well, she's actually going to be 2 or is 2) but we don't get to see her much and the other niece gets alot of cool stuff from me, so I decided I better make up for lost time and get her some beautiful things and I consider I See Me! Books as part of that equation. I try to mix in as many books and coloring books as I can in with the toys so that they understand that reading is very important!

Here are some specifics if you need them:

Gender and ages:Girls and boys ages 0-6
Blanket Size:14" x 14"
Book Size:8.5" x 8.5"
Number of pages:20 (if you complete all 6 spreads)
Awards:Mom's Choice, Creative Child Magazine and

Standard delivery:Receive 2 weeks after date of order
Expedited delivery and Air delivery:Not available on this item

Oh, if you happen to have twins, they can fix that, too, so don't worry about that. Or if you want both of the siblings in the same book they have a version for that also. So, whether it is for one child or two, they will have a unique story because all throughout the book while telling them who loves them, they name all the family's names and who they are like Aunt, Uncle, Grandmother, etc. It actually is quite cute! The blanket will have a blue hue in it for a boy and then of course the girl's is pink and burgundy. And it's very, very soft! Below is a video I found on I See Me! website that will explain the process and show the book to you more than I can.

I have tried really hard this year to get thought provoking gifts as I get older, because I know my time is ticking and I hope to leave behind a legacy that reading is important. I have always loved to read and would do so when I needed to work thru a divorce or breakup, the passing of my mother then my father, job losses, health issues, etc.

Check out the other new Holiday Book that can be personalized also. I love bears and this one is so cute! Perfect for boy or girl. I think the boy's book will be in blue.  You can find this in the Holiday Gift Guide section and if you look further down, I have left the link for you to go straight there. It is above the Christmas Tree Coloring Book.

Without reading I would have been lost. It got me thru the worst of it and I hope that I can pass that strength on down the road. Once you watch this video you will see just how precious this book and little blanket really is.  I hope that they treasure it  and save it to pass on to their children.  One can only hope so!

I See Me! has lots more books beside this one to choose from and you can pick books for girls or boys. And this year they have two new products to add to their list, a personalized place mat and a coloring book! I almost got those instead because then I could have had it done for my grandson, but I already have him quite a stash so I didn't want his mom to think I was trying to outdo her or anything, so I got the book and blanket instead for Emma. (which is my middle name)!

Above is the place mat and since I did not look at them when I ordered the book & blanket, it's a good thing I didn't because he adores dinosaurs and I would have wanted to have these. The coloring book below is something that can keep them occupied for hours! Oh, just so you know, when you order 2 or more products they give you a discount! There will be special Holiday Placemats and Coloring Books like the one below! Below is the coloring book:
I think either of the products would have been met with just as much happiness so it doesn't matter which you choose, your child still wins, regardless!  Using coloring books also teaches them lessons that need to be learned so either way, we did right by our children, because they will know deep in their hearts that Mom & Dad and Grandma & Grandpa love them all the same!

Oh wow! I just read something I did not know! Jessica Alba & Courtney Cox get their kid's books here also! Neat! Here is a little more info on the story of I See Me!:
Welcome to I See Me! where we provide the highest quality, most personalized children's books available. We opened for business in May of 2000, after a year of active product development. My husband Allan and I received a personalized book as a gift for our first son in 1998. While we loved the fact that it was personalized, we thought that the illustrations could have been much better and the story more customized to the child. Thus I See Me! was born.

Allan, who is a graphic designer, and I developed the first book My Very Own Name as a team. Our goal was to produce an educational book that would teach young children how to recognize letters and spell their names. After I developed the concept and wrote the book, we brainstormed together to develop the characters in the book. Allan found and hired the illustrator, and designed the book, while I wrote the business plan.

We are pleased to say our books have become popular among celebrities including Courteney Cox, Brooke Shields and Jessica Alba.

Our mission is to increase self esteem in children through personalized books that celebrate the uniqueness of each child. The goal of our books is to show each child how absolutely unique and special he or she is, to teach the child how to spell his or her name, and to build vocabulary skills.
