The first thing that caught my eye about this company is the name - I've always loved freckles, despite not really having many (or perhaps that's why I love them lol)...every time I see this company name and logo I can't help but smile! THEN I looked at their products - and I haven't stopped smiling since!
On a mission to educate and entertain, Scott and Mark conceived this here web-based business to offer truly unique, personalized gifts for children at affordable prices. Their entertaining selection of personalized items are designed to delight your children and friends (and trust me, they will!).
I love it all. I absolutely adore personalized items. I remember seeing a teddy bear at a mall once that had my name on the dress - my name was NEVER one of the ones pre-made, and even if it was it was never *my* spelling. It was a momentous occassion - I HAD to have that bear. So I got it, justifying myself by saying it was a christmas present (what's wrong with buying yourself a christmas present??). I still have it in fact - I just can't part with it. Considering I was about 18 when I bought the bear and knowing how excited I was to see my name, I think I have a pretty good understanding of how awesome it is for kids to see the same. I knew we had to review this company!
The most difficult part about this site was trying to decide what we wanted to review. Megan and I were each able to choose one item from their product list to review (incredibly generous!). Brooklyn was really excited about the Unicorn book and Hadley chose the Pigeons puzzle. How fun is that - both were so excited when they arrived! Brooklyn asks for her book regularly and often it turns into 4 or 5 times in a row. She loves seeing her name incorporated into the story and is always reading it to her friends when they come over. We even got to put a little *dedication* page in at the front. I wanted this book to be even more special to her, so it was a gift from her little brother, Jonah. Hadley has a blast putting her puzzle together and seeing her name spelled out at the bottom (in birds no less). It's so fun and a great way to encourage early literacy!
And now - we've recently been notified that Frecklebox has launched their *back to school* line. I'm in trouble.....with Brooklyn starting kindergarten, and really wanting to avoid the whole *paper bag* scenario (for waste reasons) I HAVE to have one of these personalized lunchboxes, among a few other items that are just calling my name (like the personalized placemats for example). I'm certain I'll be putting in an order shortly - I just can't get enough of their products. Awesome quality, fabulous prices, and personalized for each child! I love it! It's so easy to personalize the items online and it's even set up to give you a preview of what it will look like with your child's name on it (and you can see each page of the books in the preview!). It sure makes ordering online a little less daunting! In addition, it's soo difficult to find accessories for boys - what a great way to make sure the little men in our lives aren't left out.
So I'm guessing you'd like to see for yourself! Scott and Mark are offering one lucky winner their choice of personalized item (aren't they fabulous!!!). You pick whatever you want - how awesome is that!!!!
