MyFairyTaleBooks {Review & Giveaway} Personalized Children's Books and CDs

{This giveaway is now closed - congratulations, Elizabeth!}

Every year as one of my daughters' birthdays roll around, I am that parent. You know, the parent that, when you ask what their child "is into," gives you a vague, not-really-helpful response.

I don't do it on purpose, I just have a hard time thinking of children's gifts in general. Toys? Clothes? They always end up outgrown or discarded. I'm not a big gift certificate person (even though they are extremely practical) just because I like to try to perpetuate this idea that I have that I'm a creative person. If the entire world would have a continual gift registry running at all times, wouldn't that make things a little easier?

Fortunately, from now on I plan on heading directly to one website for gift ideas that boys and girls of all ages will love for years to come: MyFairyTaleBooks.com.

From personalized children's books to personalized children's music to personalized children's gift sets (are you detecting a theme here?), MyFairyTaleBooks offers a huge variety of items to amaze and delight kids from their first glance or listen. Whether reading a story where they are the star or turning on a CD to hear their name mentioned throughout the songs, a customized gift like these will continue to be a big hit time and time again.

Know a sports fan? Maybe they would like the Personalized Children's G-o-o-oal! Book, where they go from watching the game on the sidelines with their friends to scoring the winning goal - with every name, age, location, team and more customized just right to make them the main character.

Looking for something that includes a little educational value as well? I love the idea of helping a child learn or practice counting with the Personalized Children's Let's Count on Sesame Street Book or make potty training a little easier with a Personalized Children's Bye Bye Diaper Book.

As MyFairyTaleBooks gives you the option of previewing the entire story for their books right online, you never have to guess if the one you choose will convey the message that will work best for your child or not. Instead, you can safely place your order knowing that your present will bring surprise and happiness to the lucky young recipient for a long time afterward!

Big Sister E was more than excited when the opening notes of her Personalized Children's Elmo and Friends Sing Along CD came through the speakers. Elmo's voice alone was enough to send her running for her stuffed Elmo to dance with, but upon hearing him welcome her and tell her just how glad he was that she was going to sing along with him... well, who wouldn't get a little wound up over that?

This is an action shot of Big Sister E - she would hardly stand still long enough for me to take a picture of her. As for Little Sister B, your guess is as good as mine as to why hearing Elmo sing to her made her want to stand on her head.

Extremely easy to order, MyFairyTaleBooks has a long list of names available, including pronunciation, to choose from. Not only that, to again ensure that your order will be perfect, you can hear a sample from the disc to know that the name is the exact one that you are looking for while you shop.

An instant hit in our house, this CD included just the right amount of the Sesame Street cast talking and singing to keep both of my daughters interested in joining in and hearing more. With her name mentioned more than 60 times throughout the music, there was no doubt in Big Sister E's mind that Elmo was talking directly to her - which she loved.

After listening to this CD over and over, Big Sister E still gets just as happy that Elmo wants her to sing with him and Little Sister B makes great attempts to join in with her big sis and "Melmo" as well. With seven different CD options ranging in price from $19.95 to $23.95, I love the idea of giving personalized music as a gift for something that truly can't just be found anywhere.

Plus, the 40+ personalized books that MyFairyTaleBooks offer not only come in a wide range of subjects and styles, but most of them cost just $11.95. Combine that with the great customer service and high quality items that MyFairyTaleBooks prides itself on and it's no wonder they are a popular and well-praised site to shop for all of your gift-giving needs!

Also, thanks to the generosity of MyFairyTaleBooks, one more lucky child is going to get to experience the joy of a personalized book or CD, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of personalized book or CD from MyFairyTaleBooks!

How Awesome! I had a personalized book when I was little. Actually, I had two, Snow White and the 7 Dwarves and a Bert and Ernie one about the pigeons. I loved them!!! I didn't realize they were still doing them. I definitely have to get my girls one.

I think for my older daughter I'd have to go with Seasame Street and my younger one, I'd have to go with the princess ballerina. They'd make great Christmas presents!
