When I was offered the chance to review the Keepsake Critter experience for myself I was delighted. I was bowled over by the idea of turning a piece of Freddy's old clothing into a cherished memento of his babyhood! I knew right away what I wanted to send to Ruth for her to do her magic...Freddy's first pair of big boy pyjamas that he had when he is 5 months old!
It was just over a week until our package arrived. We excitedly opened it to find a lovely hand made cloth bag tied with a ribbon. A gorgeous smell of lavender filled the air and I thought that it was a lovely touch to add the scent to our package with a matching hand sewn lavender pillow. A hand made label read "Freddy's Critter made from his first grown-up PJ's." The whole experience was shaping up to be a wonderful and thoughtful one. It is the little personal touches that makes Summerland such a lovely company to deal with.
When I saw our Keepsake Critter Mohawk Monster, I couldn't help but smile! He was extremely cute with his quirky expression and button eyes. I loved that Ruth had used the pocket of the pyjamas on the Critter's tummy. The soft felt mohawk, hands and feet contrasted perfectly with the material I had provided, tying the whole appearance of our Critter together. Our original bespoke creation is indeed a charming and fun keepsake!
The Keepsake Critter would make a thoughtful personalised gift and is a lasting memento. Any item of clothing from baby's first outfit, to a dress worn on a memorable holiday to a favourite pair of trousers can be transformed into a monster, a mouse, a cat or a rabbit to keep forever. Priced at £25 and with free p & p, the whole experience is a unique, great value idea for any occasion.
This is what Kizzy thinks of PJ our Keepsake Critter!
