Colour: BeigeVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
From the box:

'As each child grows, we all collect priceless items and treasures too precious not to keep. Whether it's hospital tags or school reports, baby booties or their first masterpiece - ClevaMemories(tm) allows you to store all of these precious keepsakes in a personalised suitcase. The beautifully illustrated baby book lets you record your little one's milestones throughout their first year and store those cherished first photographs.'

With dedication, and, when the time is right, it will be possible to show your pride and joy their introduction to the world, aka 'my journey starts here'.

'Designed by Mums for Mums', this boxed set opens to reveal a reasonably sturdy cardboard suitcase with metal clasp and plastic-type handle (which lies flat if required), a hardcover baby record book and three tiny (fairly flimsy) card boxes, stowed in a larger and chunkier lidded cardboard box for:

* the hospital baby ID band
* the first lock of hair
* the first tooth

Three strips of sticky alphabet (lower case letters) & five sets of numbers/dots are supplied, for name and birth date personalisation, although they are a paler colour than the box detail and stock pictures above suggest.

The hardcover book, measuring c 18 cm x 24.5 cm is a typical baby fact record book with for all those unique details and photos, although the latter is on the ambitious side when it states 'place lots of photos here', given the size of the page. It might also be worth noting that a 'standard family' is assumed at times, e.g. a place to record:

'Daddy has given me ........kisses today'
'Mummy has given me ........kisses today'

All wrapped up, it is a neat little outfit measuring around 32.5 cm x 29.5 cm x 13.5 cm and would certainly make an unusual gift at a baby shower, perhaps when the sex of the baby is not known. Aside from the fact that 'ella' is the example name on the outer box, the contents do have a rather 'girly' look (IMO).
I also feel that the the RRP* is on the high side for something which is generally just of cardboard construction especially if you do want to store things like the first Teddy, bottle, blanket & rattle in the suitcase, as suggested, but I am sure that any proud parent/s would enjoy putting it all together when time is back on their side!

* 'For each item sold, £1.50/EUR 1.72 will be donated to Make-A-Wish®'.......to celebrate their 10th anniversary, which is a nice extra touch.

Colour: BeigeVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This is a nice idea, a suitcase with a hardback book and a few little boxes to store keepsakes and photographs of your child's early years, but the qualities just not here - I seriously doubt the flimsy cardboard suitcase would last a housemove, never mind a lifetime, and they certainly haven't shelled out a lot of dosh on hiring the graphic designer.

You wouldn't want to buy this for yourself, as it's just too cheap and nasty, and if I'd received it as a gift I'd actually have been quite offended as I'd have assumed that a) the giver reckoned I had rather bad taste and b) they'd spent about a fiver on it.

As I said, a nice idea if they'd put some effort into the design and manufacture of it. But they didn't.

Bought this as A present off Aunt & Uncle for new parents so for the price you get a suitcase a hardback baby record book three small boxes for first curl,tooth and ID bracelet, also letters and numbers to personalise the case.
New parents will be chuffed with this as its a nice thing to put all your bits and bobs in over the coming months and early years but all that said the case is made of cardboard which was a surprise and the catch is not that strong,I hope it lasts.

I love this. I actually brought this for my newborn son as I wanted a keepsake box for all this things. I love the fact that you can personalise the box with babies name and DOB. The book and little keepsake boxes are an added bonus too. It's pretty good quality and seems sturdy enough to last.

I would recommend this as a gift as it's a lovely keepsake memory box.

My daughter was thrilled with this suitcase and box. She did not want a blue one for her son and was happy with the beige one and the book. There is plenty of room in the case for all my grandson's baby cards and newspapers of the day he was born. I would recommend this item as a nice present.

It may be expensive, and the contents might be predictable, but there are very few new parents that wouldn't welcome a gift like this.

Whether or not they choose to fill in the books and remember to save all the keepsakes suggested, this is the kind of gift that adds to the excitement of having a new member in the family, and the fact that it comes in a case makes it particularly convenient.

The quality isn't fantastic (cardboard doesn't exactly make a good "suitcase") but there isn't a compelling reason for a keepsake like this to be any sturdier. The suitcase is symbolic and the expectation is that you'll keep it somewhere safe. As a memory box, this has everything that a new parent might want. You wouldn't buy it yourself, but would probably appreciate it as a gift.

Loved the Keepsake Suitcase and the memories book, a little disappointed in the hair,tooth and hospital band boxes as a little bit flimsy. Being such a good price was over all very pleased with the gift for my granddaughter!

Product arrived promptly, well packed and in good condition.
The catch on the storage suitcase is fiddly and does not appear very robust, particularly as it is intended to be used often to add items as the baby grows.
The record book has space for text and photographs, but is rather general/predictable, however, for first-time parents it could be helpful as a reminder of what to save for future memory-triggers. As so many parents now have digital cameras and electronic storage devices, the photo element of the book will be less relevant than in the past, but the storage for sentimental items will continue to have relevance. Would make a pleasant gift to new parents.

Beautiful box and book inside.
Although I wish the book was thicker so you could add more into it for the first year.
Roughly has 30 pages, which Id on't think is enough for the first year of a baby's life.
