We are huge fans of I See Me! Personalized Children’s Books in this household. My son has both the Very Merry Christmas and Very Happy Birthday Book. We absolutely love the uniqueness of both books. So when I found out I See Me! was coming out with Personalized Coloring and Activity books as well as placemats, I was more than eager to learn more about these great stocking stuffers!
So first let’s talk about the coloring books! They offer an Owl Storybook version and a Fairytale version. Either one you choose, your child is the star! Their name is prominently displayed throughout the pages. If you choose to submit their birthday as well, that is tied into the story.
We chose the Owl version to feature Connor, my sons name. In this tale, adorable animals bring letters one by one to spell out Connor (or your child’s first name) in rhyme! Since my son loves animals, this was especially fun for him to look at. He enjoyed coloring the personal pages even more! There are also fun activities like asking your child to draw a picture of themselves, and match each letter in their name to an illustration where the subject represents that letter.
My son is a little too young for this book activity-wise, but he did love the coloring! The black and white illustrations are beautiful and quite detailed. My son had such a blast coloring them. As a mom, I really enjoyed seeing his name and birth date threaded into the journey.
Now on to the placemats! There are 14 different themes you can choose from. Some are holiday themes such as Christmas or Easter, while others feature characters from other I See Me! books. Popular ones include the Owl Storybook tale and Fairy Tale coloring books I mentioned above, as well as the My Very Own Pirate Adventure book.
For Connor, we went with the Cars and Vehicles Personalized Placemat. The vibrant colors and fun city scape made any meal time fun for my little one. He loved pointing to the cars, trees. and little people hanging out on the hillside. The placemats measure 12″x17″. They are not only quite durable, but also made up of BPA-free plastic. I have a messy little man so I pretty much wipe them down after every meal. I have yet to experience any issues with these mats!
Now I See Me! offers a great way for you to save and for your friend to as well! Simply sign up for the Refer-A-Friend program and when you tell your friends about I See Me!, you’ll receive $5 I See Me! Dollars for each friend you refer. Better yet, your friend will get $5 off their first order as a new customer!
Overall I’ve been very happy with the high quality products produced by I See Me! I love the idea of their books as gifts, but the coloring books and placemats as stocking stuffers.
