What are Personalized Kid's Photo DVDs?
Personalized Music CDs are audio CDs that contain stories and theme songs from popular shows personalized to include your child's name. Your child's name is mentioned throughout the entire CD by their favorite characters. Unlike our personalized books that can be made to include any child's name no matter how unique, Music CDs have limited names available.
We provide sample songs for all of our music CD titles where you can hear songs personalized with your child's name. For example, click here to listen to song samples for Elmo and Friends personalized with your child's name.
Please verify that your child's name is available in the list of names when ordering Personalized Music CDs. Each Music CD has their own list of available names. Also, if the spelling of your child's name is different, that's okay, we can spell the name any way you like, for example, Katelin, Kaitlyn, or Catelyn.
Is it safe to order through your site?
Personalized Photo DVDs for Kids makes your child the star of their own cartoon adventure with today’s most popular characters. Your child's face and name are incorporated into the cartoon animation. All we need is a digital photo of your child. Please be sure that the photo is clear, child is facing forward with no obstructions to the face (no hat or sun glasses).
We provide samples clips for all of our DVD titles where you can view the cartoon. For example

However, if you're giving a book as a birthday or holiday present, specify the occasion in the dedication such as "Happy Birthday! or "Merry Christmas! We also recommend that you indicate the year in which the book is given.
Can I view the illustrations and read the story for each book?
Can the book be personalized for a child located in another country?
We provide a virtual tour of all our personalized children's books so you may view the color illustrations as well as read their story line. We feel the virtual tour is the next best thing to holding the actual book to give you an idea of how each book looks.
In addition to our virtual tour you can preview your story personalized for your child prior to purchasing. Look for the "Preview Story" icon where you enter your personalized information for our books.
Absolutley! Simply provide the country and province, for example to use Rome, Italy as the country and province, enter Rome as the "Hometown" and Italy as the state. Your personalized information will read as Rome, Italy in the book.
Are your books available in other languages?
Some of our books are available in Spanish. If you want to order a book in Spanish, please contact us for more information.
Is it okay to submit my order form without the child's age?
It will come out just as good regardless of whether the child's age is included in the book. The same goes for the child's middle name - it's up to you whether you want to include it in the story.
Can I see how the book is personalized for my child?
Can I read the entire story for all of the books?
YES! You can preview your story personalized for your child prior to purchasing. Look for the "Preview Story" icon where you enter your personalized information for our books.

Yes, you can read the entire story for all of our personalized books in our Reading Room

page where you can see how your child becomes the star of the story in our most popular books.
We would first advise to check to see if the child’s name is spelled differently, for example Katelin, Kaitlyn, or Catelyn. If we do not have the name then unfortunately we are not able to produce the music CD as names are pre-recorded.
