Wonderbly Personalised Books – Review

Bedtime for You

We are huge fans of Dragons Den and first became aware of the Lost My Name book when they appeared on the show back in 2015.

Lost My Name has since changed its name to Wonderbly, but they still still produce the most wonderful, personalised books that kids will treasure forever.

The kids still adore their Lost My Name books and we have added to them since as there is something magical about seeing your own name in a story and this year we have added to our collection.

We were very excited to welcome a new grandchild into the family this month and I knew what I wanted her first gift to be – her first book.

Bedtime for You is the perfect gift for children aged 0-4.

Bedtime for Lilah Book

The book is a beautifully illustrated and written bedtime story in charming verse, personalised for your little one to enjoy. You can choose to personalise both the name, sex and appearance to reflect your own little one.

Bedtime for Lilah

It’s the cosiest, cuddliest countdown to sleep, ever and Isaac adored reading Lilah her first bedtime story.

For Sebby, we opted for the “Where are You….” book, where kids are looking for themselves!

Where are you

Full of fabulous detail, vibrant colour and curious characters, and packed with visual jokes galore, Sebastian loves this book already.

Where are you

Inside are 6 alternative universes, where the kids can spot different versions of themselves, along with oodles of other fun challenges.

Chef Sebastian

Sebastian loves that he can be different characters, including a superstar rock star, an archeologist and even a detective.


Both books can also be personalised with messages at the front of the book.


There is also a fabulous activity book which accompanies the “Where are You….” book, which features fun games, challenges and stickers for the kids to complete.

Where are you

Wonderbly books cost from £19.99 each and make a great gift for any special occasion.
