Personalised books with MyFairyTaleBooks

Recently I was asked if the boys would like to receive a personalised book from MyFairyTaleBooks for a review. I have written before how I love reading and hope my passion for books is passed onto the boys. The National Literacy Trust compiled a report which says that only 1 in 4 boys read out of class every day. As a mum of boys I really hope that my 3 continue to enjoy reading.


My Fairy Tale Books is an online website which offers the customer the ability to personalise stories for their chosen recipient. Started in 2009 (Jacks birth year 🙂 ) the owners Kelly and Dinesh set out to fulfil their aims –

“To foster education, build self-esteem and create joy in the lives of our customers”

Placing the order was really easy which is helped by the easy to navigate website. There is a whole range of books available to choose from such as Disney, Nick Jnr and other story books. The range of books is quite extensive from Frozen to SpongeBob Square Pants to baby books.

I let the boys choose which titles they would like to receive. It really didn’t take long before they had made their mind up.

  • Jack chose The Avengers
  • Oliver chose Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and,
  • Arthur chose Toy Story 3

When ordering the books you are asked to input some personal information such as recipients name, Date of birth, where they live and their 3 friends name. There is also the space to write a little message from the sender. Which for the older 2 was really easy. Arthur however was a little more difficult as he only has 1 friend. I did however include his brothers to make it to 3.


The books arrived really quickly (especially considering they are personalised) and well packaged. We received hard back covers which are pretty solid. The finish is of  high standard you can tell instantly when you hold the book. Reading the story and seeing your child’s name in print is pretty awesome!

Their Reactions

Arthur was made up! Toy Story at the moment is such a familiar story to him that he knew what to expect when we started reading. It wasn’t until I mentioned his name, and then Jack, Oliver and Adam (names he recognises) that it clicked he was in the story. He loved it, absolutely loved it!


All 3 boys at one stage or another throughout reading it asked where they were and pointed to the pictures. Maybe something for the future? Not sure how it could work though and to be honest they moved on pretty quickly.

    Personalised fairy tale books, best thing I’ve seen in a while! Oh my, Pyry is so going to need one. I’ll have to look into this and see if they ship to Finland.

    Excellent books, we really love personalised stories over here, I think the older the little ones are the better but we once had one that even had Noahs face superimposed when he was 2 – it was so great as he could see himself. He’d be majorly impressed with the toy story book, it’s his fave!

    Personalised books are always lovely and I like that these have familiar stories. I think it can be hard to get some children interested in books, but I’m sure by being featured in them it could help encourage reluctant readers.

    I love personalised books! I haven’t got any for my kids yet so will keep this site in mind when I order! x

    We are huge lovers of personalised books and my S is at the age where she is learning to notice her name! Thank you for the recommendation!

    These sound great. Erin would love the prospect of being inside the story with her favourite characters!

    I remember having these as a child and they meant so much to me I feel like they make an amazing gift. This is going to be something I can see me getting Jess in the future when she is old enough to understand and appreciate books.
