We started buying baby board books almost immediately after our 1st daughter Mia was born in 2012 – in fact we just couldn’t walk by a bookshop without going in to check out their baby books. / Mia quickly found a love of books and although we were delighted that there were so many wonderful books on offer, that said we wanted to create something individual for her. We wanted Mia to have books with pictures of herself, our family, her playmates, her favourite toys – all the things she loves.
That’s when we came up with the idea for Booky Wooky. The ability to create our very own 100% personalised board books they way we wanted - cover to cover - our story in our own unique style. And when we received the first samples of Mia’s personalised board books, we were thrilled to watch her reaction - she absolutely loved them!
In 2015, our second daughter Elle was born, and her love for her own books is the exact same. She simply can’t get enough of her Booky Wooky books. It funny watching Elle read them because regularly mistakes photos of baby Mia for baby Elle!
Every time we create a new book just for either of them, they literally burst with happiness & delight to see themselves in their very own ‘Once upon a time’ story.
We think the possibilities are endless, like...
- Welcome to the world baby
- Your very own ABC
- Who loves me?
- Here’s my family
- We’re your family in Oz
- My new brother / sister
- Our family dog
- My body parts (ears, eyes, nose…)
- Learning all about emotions
- Favourite Nursery Rhymes
- Flash cards with family faces
- Let kids write their own stories – drawn pictures can be scanned or kids can recreate scenes and take photos
