Are you scratching your head thinking about what will make your child’s special day amazing? There are so many choices these days and it seems that our inboxes, mailboxes and social media outlets are overflowing with ideas. I typically am looking for unusual gift ideas that have some meaning rather than the latest, greatest fad. This is why I was excited to be picked to review Your Amazing Name – Personalized Adventures for EVERY name! by CrossTimber-Name Meaning Gifts. Here is what we found…

CrossTimber is an American company that prides itself on providing quality items with a personal touch. They believe that a person’s name helps them become who they are. Because of this, they go out of their way to make beautiful products that reflect the beauty in each name. They have a wide variety of personal name products, but for this review, we will concentrate on the Amazing Name – Personalized Adventures for EVERY name!.
A Little Bit About Your Amazing Name – Personalized Adventures for EVERY name!
Amazing Name is a short cartoon movie adventure (approximately 30 minutes). The video comes in either a streaming format, DVD or both. During this cartoon adventure, your child will travel along on a journey to find the meaning behind his or her name. Parents are asked to help customize the video by sending in their child’s artwork, a photo, and a personal letter about how they picked their child’s name. All of these things are woven into a masterpiece your child will truly treasure.
CrossTimber has many storylines to choose from, or you can do what we did, and have them surprise you. Additionally, we received fun activity sheets to print and use. These were also related to our daughter’s name, which she found very exciting.
My daughter loves to be the star of the show, as I am sure most kids do. That is why the video and activity sheets were such a big hit in our house. I don’t think there is a person our daughter knows that has not seen her video, as she is very proud to show everyone.
How We Used The Product
Our daughter is most likely not the target market for this product as I would say this product is more for someone in elementary school. However, she is currently at this age emotionally, so we thought we would try it out. She is battling a lot of medical issues currently, as well as making up time in her learning. We thought this would be a great way to reward all of her efforts.
One day, we pulled her from her schoolwork. We explained how proud we are of all her hard work and that we had a surprise. We turned on her video, and she was immediately drawn in by the fun animations. When she saw her artwork flying around the screen, she got excited, pointed, and said, “That’s my picture!”
She loved that this video was all about her, and has had to show everyone she knows! Her older brother (who is in middle school) said that he would like one, “even though they are more for little kids.” The first time our daughter watched her movie, she interacted with the pencil character. Each time he would ask a question, she was answer. It was very sweet.

“I like my video a lot. It has my picture and my artwork.”
“These videos are very thoughtful and of great quality. We loved the owl puns that were included to entertain the adults. These videos are something different. This is something your child will want to keep even when they get older.”
