Review of Big On Children's 'Music For Me' CD

Personalised stuffed toy and Little Me toys
What is it that makes some toys or gifts more special than others? For kids, it can be because they were given by someone they are close to, or something which marked a special occasion, or because it was given as a reward for an accomplishment. I have recently been introduced to another way in which you can make toys for your children extra special - by personalising them!

I was invited to visit a concept store called Big On Children in Dubai Mall, and was surprised by the dozens of options they provide for personalised items. The company has just celebrated a year of launching and provides items such as alarm clocks which sing your child's name, teddy bears that sing a lullaby to them, 'Little Me' plush toys which have a 3D image of your child's face, and much more. The items can be personalised in ten different languages. They already have a database of 40,000 names but don't worry if your child's name isn't available. They have a list in which they keep adding new names and are currently updating their products to reflect names of the many nationalities in the UAE. Big On Children is also the exclusive distributor for Bandette, Bandle and Toothband products, which allow you to write your child's name on feeding bottles, sippy cups and toothbrushes.

Personalised alarm clocks and DVDs

One of their popular products is the movie DVD which is a personalised film featuring your child (more on this product below). Little Dude had a go at this and was fascinated by seeing himself on TV!

Another product which caught my (and Little Dude's) attention was the 'Music for Me' personalised audio CD which I am reviewing for you in detail. I think this CD is most suited for children from toddlers up to 4 or 5 years old, who will appreciate the peppy music and will be delighted to hear their name sung over and over! This CD has 12 tracks which are personalised with my son's name. The songs include a birthday song and a lullaby.

The most peppy song in the CD is Wake Up, which Little Dude loved the most. He also responded well to the song That's Your Name! For a child, it seems like the singer is addressing them, and that's why they will love listening to the music. I personally liked the track When You Grow Up. Babies and toddlers will like the tunes and listening to their name, which at their age, they love hearing! Older children will feel special listening to these songs. In fact, I've been getting requests to play the CD from Little Dude at least once a day!

One of the best qualities of this CD is that the name doesn't sound like it has been 'pasted' into the song. Each of them has been sung individually, so the effect comes across as smooth and continuous.

The 'Music for Me CD' costs AED 95 and will also make a great gift. Apart from this version, there are also other versions such as Let’s Play and Learn, Animal Love Me, and a Christmas music CD. The music CD is available in ten languages - Arabic, Khaleeji (gulf Arabic dialect), English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese and Greek.

You can visit the Big On Children store in Dubai Mall (Level 2). Their products are also available at Hamleys in Dubai Mall, and Toy Store in Mall of Emirates and Dubai Mall. They also have an overseas store in FAO Schwarz, New York City. Visit their Facebook page for more details.
