The Wonderful World of BabyLit and LoveLit

Love Lit Tote, Notebooks, Badges and BabyLit Dracula

I was approached on behalf of BabyLit to review some of their board books. I love their board books anyway, and we have Dracula (I discovered them after my two were past the board book stage, but I still bought one!) Then I also saw their LoveLit range of totes, notebooks and badges I knew that my wonderful book addicted readers would love everything LoveLit.

BabyLit Sherlock Holmes

The BabyLit board books take themes and ideas from classical literature and create stunning designs that work for babies, children, and adults. There are some mutterings from purists that these board books are nothing like the works they are based on, but I think they contain the heart and symbols of the books they’re based on and aren’t supposed to be a baby version of a novel.

BabyLit Jabberwocky

And did I mention how stunning the art work is? This is important on all sorts of levels, but leaving my personal love of them aside, let’s think of the board book reader demographic. You’re looking at a child from maybe four or five months, who can consistently grasp something, up to around three or four years when they’ve widened their book library with the ability to turn paper pages.

This highly fussy demographic is attracted to beauty. They want bright colours and contrasts, they want the familiar and they want the strange (but safe), they want to absorb the world and they need to learn constantly.ย  BabyLit has that covered. The books are also quality made and durable, an essential for this age group!

There are a huge range of books to choose from, and I’ve added some sample pages to this post but you can see the full range at (a US site), plus lots of lovely images at Alison Oliver’s website. You can also read (glowing) reviews from The Book Sniffer and Plastic Rosaries.

In addition to the board books, there are playsets. The first (and, at time of writing, only available playset in the UK) is Pride and Prejudice. It looks gorgeous. I’m afraid to say I’ve not seen it in real life but from the picture (and knowing the quality of the board books) it looks very sturdy and great fun. If a Dracula or Jabberwocky one comes out, I don’t think I’ll be able to resist at all…

Giveaway – ENDED
BabyLit’s UK distributors, PGUK, have very kindly offered one of their lovely totes as a prize – and the winner can choose which one they get. They also very kindly sent me a tote so I can confirm they are well made, very sturdy, thick canvas, and look like they’ll withstand being packed to bursting with books from your local bookstore or library! I was also sent notebooks and badges and will post the red notebooks and three badges from the top picture in this post to the winner. Mighty-Girl will be getting the blue notebooks to write her next novel in. The Dracula badges are mine ๐Ÿ˜‰

The winning comment will be chosen at random at some point after the deadline of 12pm on Sunday 8th December 2013.

  2. melanie stirling

    I have shared to facebook.

  3. I am in love with all of these beautiful things. I think I’ll HAVE to buy all of the board books for the little guy (me mainly). If I were lucky enough to win I would choose the Mr Darcy tote (although it is a super hard choice). Thanks so much for this super giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  4. What a great website. I’d like ANY of those totes – but I’ll request the ‘Pride and Prejudice’ one. I may be getting a couple of those board books for my 17 year old this Christmas – suitable to cheer a stressed A level student!

  6. Oh yes please! Actually was admiring the play set only today. Mr Darcy for me please ( although Moby one also v. Tempting)

  7. I retweeted. Does that give me another go? Not to worry if not x

  8. Such great looking stuff I think it’s Mr Darcy for me, just who I need to carry my shopping

  9. Oh my! Those books are looking pretty perfect for my book-loving 10 month-old. Dracula might go down well, as long as there are bats. “Bat” is a popular word just now.
    Bagwise I’m torn, “I like big books…” makes me smile.

  10. The Cheshire Cat does the smiling for me ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I have half of these books in my Amazon wishlist! And I would love the Big Books and I cannot Lie tote if I were to win ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Oh I love them all! Not come across these guys before and now want ALL the notebooks. Tough call – I love the Cheshire Cat one.. But think I would choose I Love Big Books and I Cannot Lie. Because I do. And I can’t!
