hello lovely mums netters. I've never posted a message on here before so here goes.....my husband and i are going through adoption and have recently been matched with a baby boy. were looking for a book like the tomy forget me not record album which is now obsolete i was just wondering if anyone on here knows if there are any similar recordable photo albums available as we can't find anything as good. thanks smile

I think someone posted about this quite recently and found an alternative. I think it was someone pretty regular so they will probably come along and tell you shortly.

And congratulations on the match!

You can buy talking photo albums from this site but don't look colourful like the Tomy one.

You can still find the tomy ones, if you're prepared to hunt around a bit!
This sure seems to have them peterandpolly.co.uk/product/tomy-discovery-forget-me-not-photo-album/ and there's a brand new one on ebay at the moment smile

Our lo was only 6 months so we got the Lamaze butterfly one but it does only hold 4 photos. I have to say I think it is perfect for little ones who don't really get the photo thing so early intros. He's 7 months now and loves it and recognises us in the photos but especially likes hearing our voices.

I just brought this tomy talking photo album a few days ago from Amazon.com..luckily managed to find a seller from US who was OK with shipping to the UK. Delivery is expected on Tuesday. And i only paid exactly £30 inc shipping (much less than some UK sellers are selling it for) Unfortunately the seller is no longer shipping to the UK otherwise I would have posted the link for you but I think its worthwhile to keep checking every now and again as you may well find another seller who is willing to deliver to UK again soon. Its worth holding out for as the new replacement doesn't seem to be as great, its much smaller with not much space for that many pics plus more expensive. Good luck!

Asda do photo books may be better for older children, can make a great book and have it professionally finished, also they are great just too make up for other things record of child's best trips out , 1st birthday , Adoption celebration's. etc. just Google Asda Photo books.

Forgot too add too make things more personal you can do a PowerPoint presentation on your PC and burn it on too cd or dvd , they can then view using TV or Their PC. Can do a video same way.

New to mumsnet and trying to find my way around do you still have an interactive photo album?

Has anyone got any Tomy Talking Photo albums for sale? Im adopting two little ones and trying to get hold of two! Proving to be quite tricky! Thanks.

You could try the 'Lamaze - Photo album with butterflies and sounds', they are quite pricey, around £18 but the Tomy ones are on sale on Ebay for more like £50.

Just so you know we also made/bought a number of things for our son:
A dvd of things in our area, like the local park and school
A scrapbook of things that he may like
A blanket with his name and date of birth on (which I slept in the bed with so it smelled like me!)
A number of soft toys (3) and a book which we gave to him in the week of introductions - all focused around things he liked - and at different stages, e.g. a teddy the day we met him 'Look after teddy until we see you tomorrowand another toy the day our dd (birth child) met him
Plus a Tomy record-able book.

Because they are so expensive and you need two maybe see if any rich relatives would like to buy this for you (not for them to give the children but for you to give to the children).

Good luck and CONGRATULATIONS
