I bought this book from some MN and Amazon reviews that blared on about how fab and delightful it was.
I was rather disappointed that the books were flimsy paper books, rather than being something a bit more practical like boardbooks, the weight makes them easier to stay flat and when little hands reach out to feel they are firm and don't get ripped.
The mobile was the biggest disappointment, without plenty of tape some additional string and an old metal coathanger this would still be in the box. It was just flimsy and the slightest breeze made it collapse in a pile of floppy paper.
Black and White images were good for DD to focus on, but I went and bought a more sturdy board book [with trains on] for her and it's still a hit now, 2 years on. Where as the paper books in this set have all been recycled now as they damaged so very easily.Read moreLess

Comments from Mumsnetters:
"This book comes with a black and white mobile and supports the principles which are set out in a parenting book; 'The Social Baby'. Our baby certainly seemed to engage with the bold black and white images and stared for hours at the mobile". "These books have very basic black and white pictures which babies do seem to take an interest in even when they are very small". "We didn't have the theory book ('The social baby') but still enjoyed looking at this together".Read moreLess
