Christmas is just around the corner, and you may have already started to look around for gifts. If you have little ones to shop for, a personalised something would probably make a nice gift.
Well, you can now shop for these personalised somethings from the comfort of your own armchair. Enter Tolalu.com. The new e-store on the block stocks puzzles, stickers, notebooks, story books, calendars, placemats, wall stickers, and more. What’s special is that all items can be personalised with your child’s name, and you can even customise select items with your own photo.
When you enter the site, the first screen prompts you to enter a child’s name.
Once you have entered a name, you can start shopping! Simply select a category, for instance, stickers, and each of the designs will display your child’s name so you can have a good idea of how it will look like.
Aren’t these monster stickers cute?
At first, I tried to order two sets, one with Vera’s name, and one with Javier’s. But I wasn’t too sure how to go about doing it. In the end, I realised that it is quite simple. On the item’s page itself, click the ‘Customise’ button just below the item and ‘Add another Name’. Then adjust the quantity to make sure the right item is matched with the right name.
Once you’re done, and happy with your purchases, enter your details and delivery address, and proceed for payment. (Tip: ‘LIKE’ their Facebook page to get a 5% discount.)
Quite a fuss-free affair, right?
Anyway, I decided to get a puzzle in the end. Can you guess which one I chose?
Bonus points if you guessed the monkey.
Here’s Vera, beaming happily after finishing the puzzle. (Of course, with good ol’ mum helping her along.) I found that the puzzle pieces are quite large and sturdy, making it easy for small hands to handle them. However, as all the jigsaw pieces actually fit in any hole, unlike traditional jigsaws where only the right piece fits, I reckon the puzzles are more suitable for an older child, perhaps 3 years and above.
Vera enjoyed putting it together all the same. It also helps that she has recently started to recognise her name. The first time we completed it, she was so amused by the fact that her name was on it. She kept repeating “Why the monkey write my name!?”
