    Comments about TWINKLE, TWINKLE BABY MEMORY BOOK:

    I purchased Twinkle-Twinkle Baby Memory Book for a friend's baby shower. When it arrived to me from uncommongoods, first words out of my mouth where "this is NIIIIICE!" I am tempted to keep it or order another one to hold onto for one day when one of my daughters gives me a grandchild. It screams special!

    The book is great quality, well made and pleasing artistic flare in the graphics and creative text on all the pages. There is even a cute table of contents. The serene colors are classy and inviting and the few little add-ons give it a 'pop' and dimension.

    There are 2 proportioned envelopes within the pages for first lock of hair and hospital bracelet; "proportioned to just the right size for the item". Pages prompt the most special memories and leaves room for ad lib.

    Each page is thick and back to back to next thick page so no worry about accidentally ripping a page. The screw binding and hard fabric wrapped front and back covers are solid.

    This is a wonderful keepsake for any baby boy or baby girl or mom-to-be.

    I agree with another reviewer, it would be an improvement if the pages were glued at the bottom so they can double as pockets...they sure can handle holding small treasures but with that said: would the designer consider adding a matching memory box to this line please (with little drawers)?

    I rarely write a review but thought so highly of this product I made a point to do it this time.

    Comments about TWINKLE, TWINKLE BABY MEMORY BOOK:

    I searched through hundreds of memory books and finally knew I had found the right one. This book is high quality, gender-neutral, and the perfect length for some one who wants to document (but not be a slave to!) special moments. I am very hapoy with the purchase, and would definitely buy for a friend as a gift. There are pages from ultrasound to first day of school, pockets for hospital bracelet and hair, as well as plenty of spots for pictures to tell a story.

        A great keepsake

        By 

        from NY, NY

        Pros

        • Adorable illustrations
        • Well organized

        Cons

        • Pages Should Be Pockets

        Best Uses

          Comments about TWINKLE, TWINKLE BABY MEMORY BOOK:

          I picked "twinkle twinkle little star" as the "theme" for my baby girl (baby shower, nursery decor, etc) so this book is perfect (it's not an explosion of pink, those are so rare!). I love to scrapbook but since she was born, very little time to be able to do it so this book is absolutely ideal for keeping track of those memorable firsts and selected pictures. The book feels great, the pages are very thick but my only 'complaint' is that the pages are sort of folded into themselves, they missed a great opportunity to close up the bottom and make each page a pocket, to store little things that you'd like to keep. I might do that myself, just staple them shut on the bottom or something, but aside from that, it's a great keepsake.

                I had been looking for a baby book to give my daughter for my new granddaughter. The quality and construction of this book are beyond compare--worth every penny! The illustrations are phenomenal; pages are colorful and unique; paper is heavy weight; details are amazing. Don't hesitate if you are thinking about ordering this book and maybe unsure of the price--you will not find anything, anywhere that could match this!

                                          When Melissa first showed us this handmade Baby Book by Becky Santolamazza it got a ton of "oooohs" and "aaaaws" from our team. We love the attention to detail and the adorable illustrations. Would you write down your baby's special moments in this book or gift it to soon-to-be parents?
