My 1st Years: A review & giveaway

By | July 18, 2011

I was contacted a few weeks ago by My 1st Years and asked if I was interested in being sent any of their items to review.  The website and products are all gorgeous but, as the name suggests, it is a website that mainly sells products for babies.

I did, however, come across some gorgeous personalised teddies which I knew C would love as her favourite toys are her cuddly teddies.  I eventually decided to order her the Charlie Doggie, purely because I thought it was the cutest!

Charlie Doggie wears a cream jumper and can be personalised with up to 2 lines of text, up to 15 characters on each line, with a choice of 7 different colours.

To say this is a personalised item I was really impressed with the speed of delivery.  He also arrived in a lovely gift box which was a great touch if you’re buying as a gift.  C loves him, as I knew she would, and I’ve already recommended this website to a couple of people who needed to buy newborn gifts.

Charlie Doggie costs £20.00 with free UK postage but you can get your very own personalised Charlie, thanks to My 1st Years. 

To enter, simply visit the My 1st Years website and leave me a comment letting me know what your favourite item is.

The competition will close at midnight on Sunday 7th August and I will pick a winner at random.

I love the hooded towels. There is something extra cute about a baby with a little towel/hat on its head.
