We discovered the cool parent-run company that creates personalized Lost My Name books for kids nearly four years ago, and became instant fans. From the gorgeous art to the compelling story, and the clever customization that makes every single book different, they remain one of our very favorite gifts for kids.
Now they have two brand new stories to choose from — Kingdom of You and The Birthday Thief. Which means two more easy gift ideas that kids of all ages are going to love. (My kids will vouch for that.)
In Kingdom of You, your child is the hero of the story, interacting with your choice of dinosaurs, superheroes, animals or princesses. Your kid’s favorite food — pizza? Ice cream? Chicken nuggets? — plays surprising role near the end of the book, which made my kids giggle.
The Birthday Thief is brand new — in fact, they currently only have stories available for kids with birthdays from January to June, though more should be coming any day. Here, you choose a protagonist that even looks like your child, who will encounter a cast of characters unique to your child’s own birthday.
The plot is magical and inventive, brought to life with stellar illustrations; my kids especially loved seeing the moon makers, a team of minion-like characters (but blue) who help the moon along its course each month.
Always glad to have more customized gift options for kids at such affordable prices. More, please!
