Board Book Albums, LLC Review and Giveaway (Christmas Wish List 2010)



I’ve got a pretty neat little product to share with you all today, I know that most of you have someone on your shopping list this holiday season that has or is going to have a new baby, right I know that I can think of two right of the top of my head that fall into this category on my shopping list so when I discovered this really neat kid-friendly photo album by Board Book Albums I knew that this would make a perfect gifts for the soon to be and new parents on my shopping list! As many if not all of you know I have a rather destructive 2 year old little boy that just loves to look at his baby pictures and other pictures that have been taken over the years and to be honest our photo album is not even close to being kid-friendly! So when I was given the opportunity to choose an album from Board Book Albums, I was very excited and couldn’t wait to test it out with “Bug”!

About Board Book Albums, LLC (Taken From Website):

Board Book Albums, LLC is proud to offer a new chunky board book style photo album that can be used by small children, big kids, and adults alike. The "Take Your Pix™" photo album (patent pending) has sturdy pages, into which photos can be inserted from an opening in the top of the pages. Unlike other albums, these albums have thick sturdy pages that are perfect for little kids to handle (like the chunky little kids books). Notches have been added to the page edges to facilitate page turning. The photo album is 7" x 7" with 10 pages. It holds 20 4" x 6" photos and has a cover photo frame that holds a slightly smaller photo (about 4" x 5", so you can just trim a 4" x 6" photo to fit). All of our Board Book Album products are free-standing and perfect for display!

Scrapbooking, Baby Shower Gifts, and Wedding Photo Albums

The albums could be used by little ones to keep all their favorite photos or to record memorable events. Moms and other grownups could make scrapbooks, or customize and decorate the albums for special occasions, to give as gifts, etc. The solid white albums are great for weddings, scrap-booking, or decorating yourself. Kids would have a great time decorating their own books with stickers, stamps, or markers. We also offer pink, blue, and yellow albums titled “My First Photos” that are perfect for toddlers or to give as baby shower gifts. We plan to offer the books in other styles and colors in the future. Please feel free to make suggestions or share ideas about products that you would like to see in our store!

Our Thoughts:

We was sent the Blue Take Your Pix™ board book photo album, to review, and it arrived very quickly and very well packaged for shipping! “Bug” was super excited to get his very own photo album where he could put his favorite photos that he could keep in his room and on his on bookshelf so once it arrived we immediately got our photos out an I let “Bug” choose his favorites to put in his album! This album has 10 pages and holds 20 4x6 photos and boy did “Bug” and I have a good time picking out his 20 photos for his very own photo album! We ended up spending well over an hour looking at all the photos from the day he was born on and he ended up picking out photos up him, myself and his daddy on the day he was born and then some of him and his aunts and grandparents and then of course some of him and his buddies!

Since we have received this album, “Bug” has really put it through the ringers, for sure the first few days he had it we had to take it with us whenever we went to his grandparents house and just if we left the house in general! I knew my little man enjoyed looking at pictures but what I didn’t know was how much he would like to have his very own photo book! The pages are super durable and have held up amazingly well, especially under the stress he puts on it just about daily and with the front cover being blank we were able to personalize it to say Zane’s Photos with some decorative stickers we found at our local craft shop! I really love everything about this book from it holding his most favorite pictures that he chose himself to the pages being durable and very easy for him to turn on his own! I think this is one of the best kid-friendly photo albums on the market today!


Bottom Line:

The Board Book Album has really been a huge hit around our house with “Bug” and all of his little cousins that get to set down and look and “Bug’s” favorite photos without having to worry about messing up the album or the pictures and I have really enjoyed making it super special just for my little man and I’m also loving the fact that we can change out the photos as “Bug” gets older and acquires new favorite photos, since placing the photos in the album is easy as well as taking them out is super easy as well!

I think that one of the Board Book Albums would make a wonderful gift for any family with little ones or is expecting a little on this holiday season, but the ideas don’t have to stop there why not purchase one of the blank albums and customize it with decorations and wording unique to the gift recipient or create a fun little gift basket with a blank album and the stickers and markers so that they can get creative their selves!
