We recently had a chance to review a very unique gift for kids. Caty had the privilege to have a Your Personalized Adventures for EVERY name! video made of her name from CrossTimber - Name Meaning Gifts. This was such a cute video and one that littles will appreciate for a while!
CrossTimber - Name Meaning Gifts provides quality products for families featuring the meaning of their names. These items include stationary, name plaques, frames, and origin scrolls. But this time we had the privilege to have a Personalized Adventures for EVERY name!. This video is roughly 28 minutes in length, and personalized to your child. Featuring a Christian perspective, your child will discover that their name is more unique than they may think. We received the digital download, which we were able to watch on both our laptops and also tablets. For a few extra dollars, you can also purchase a DVD print of the video.
Benjamin the pencil takes your child on a journey through the meaning of their name.
You land in your video with a personalized room for your child. It features many little touches that have their name. Caty found this hilarious, and wants pillows embroidered with her name now.
You also see a piece of their artwork float into the room. She perked up when she realized that this was her painting!
The artwork is converted into a rocket ship that take your child and Benjamin to outer space. They meet the stars and make their way back to earth where they meet Mr. Owl.
Benjamin and Mr. Owl explore the meaning of names and where they come from. I found this very interesting as an adult while we were watching it together.
The story encourages your child in continuing to explore and build their relationship with God. They also meet Rescued, who was formally known as Lost. Scriptural thoughts are shared to help your children to continue to build their relationship.
To complete this project, you will send in pictures and information upon your order of the Your Amazing Name - Personalized Adventures for EVERY name!, but the real personalization is the letter that you can write to your child about why you chose their name for them. This is a very touching addition to this already meaningful gift. It can really show your child how you spent time thinking about what they would be known as.
I thought that this was just a beautiful touch that can be added. The letter is read to your child. Caty really thought this was sweet and said she understood the people she was named after better.
Caty has this saved on her computer now. She can watch it anytime she wants. This is such a sweet and touching gift to give to a child to have saved in their memory. The price is very budget friendly, and can be given by parents and grandparents alike, depending on what you want the video to say. It could be given for all ages, but would definitely make the most impact on elementary aged students.
