Review: Personalised xylophone from My 1st Years

My 1st Years is one of my favourite baby brands and my go to place when I want that special personalised gift for my little one. I am a glutton for personalised gifts and it's no wonder that Noah has amassed half a dozen items from bunting to bean bags with his name on already. 

We reviewed the silver ark moneybox from My 1st Years a couple of months back and are still in awe of it as it's just so beautiful. When I was asked if I would like to choose another item from the website to review, how could I possibly say no? 

It took me good few hours to decide on what to select because there is such a wide range of products available; from PJ's, to silverware, to ornaments for your Christmas tree. In the end I finally settled on a personalised wooden xylophone which I knew both Noah and I would love. 

The xylophone arrived a couple of days later and I was impressed the moment I opened the box. My 1st Years are known for the quality of their products and this instrument is no exception to this rule. It's plain to see how well made this product is. From the engravement to the paint job, it's perfect and for just £15.00, it's a bargain too. 

Anyway less of what I think, let's move onto what Noah thought. He loves musical instruments so I knew the xylophone would be a big hit with him but I didn't realise how much so. He usually looses interest with toys in a matter of minutes but he will sit there for lengths at a time running the sticks up and down the xylophone keys waiting for applause, it's very cute. 

As you can see by the photo's Noah is enthralled with his new xylophone. It's captured his interest and imagination unlike no other toy and he just loves to sit there performing for us. He's a little musician in the making.

If you are still looking for last minute Christmas gifts then have a browse on My 1st Years website for inspiration and if you are spoilt for choice like I was then I couldn't recommend the xylophone any higher.  

- We were sent the product for the purpose of this review. However, all opinions are my own.
