Thanks for joining us for our second annual "Winter Wishes" Gift Guide! We've put together some great gift ideas this year and have some awesome prizes to give away too! This event will run through the New Year, so make sure to check back often to see what's new! Our gift guide page has all of our gifts by category, which you can see by clicking the image above.


You are probably wondering why the logo has cut out pictures of childrens' faces next to it? That is because Bammco makes a where's your child find me type of book out of your child's picture. Find Me If You Can is 30 pages of fun. The cover looks like this:


The more exciting part is what is inside the book. Hundreds of children's faces and it is up to your child to find their face among them. I find that kid's love to find pictures of themselves and Big Sis is no exception. She loves trying to find her face among all of them. I also enjoyed the fun in it and I liked it when I found a picture of a boy with a clown wig on, it made me chuckle. Here is what it looks like on the inside:



Here is another shot of one of the pages from their website. How cool is this?


A little bit about Bammco:

  • Bammco is a small, family-owned business, started by Tom and Sue, who have 3 boys and have been married 31 years.
  • Every page in every book is unique, just like the children featured.
  • It takes a week to develop, print, bind and ship a book.
  • The book can be made with up to 120 faces in it (Think soccer team!)
  • Books are available for school fundraising.
  • You can pay more to get multiple faces.
  • They use the highest grade paper for colorful pages.

The only cons I had were that my daughter's picture had the slightest white online around her picture. None of the other stock photos had that white online. It made it super easy for me to find her picture among them all but I don't think she was able to notice.

Here is a close up shot so you understand what I am describing:



I don't know if it would help but you might want to send in a picture of your child with a dark background to try and prevent that white outline from happening.

I am also not a fan of the spiral binding. I understand that it actually costs more to do that and it is for the book to lay flat. It is probably just the librarian in me. I would not use it as a reason not to purchase I am just stating that I prefer a traditional binding.

These big and bright pages really do have great paper quality.



Overall this is incredibly fun book for your children to read. My daughter much prefers to find her face in this book rather than find Waldo yet again. This is a great idea of a special keepsake sort of book for the kids you know this holiday season. I would say this would be especially great for kids in the 2-7 age range. Big Sis is 4 and is constantly grabbing this book to find herself again.

Find Me If You Can is a super fun book to buy this holiday season. Remember this is also a family owned business which I love to help support during the Holiday Season.
