Non-Native Treasure Trove: La Vie de Mon Doudou

Poppette loves her doudou.

For her second birthday (a few months ago now but I’ve only just got around to writing this post) Papa and I thought it would be a great idea to buy her a book in which Doudou was the star attraction.

Step forward La Vie de Mon Doudou - a brilliant French website that creates books in French where either your child or their doudou are the main protagonist.

In the interests of total honesty, I definitely think that Papa and I rate the whole idea far higher than Poppette herself. She seemed a little sceptical about the fact that it really was her Doudou. We picked the jungle theme which shows Doudou frolicking with various jungle animals in their natural habitat. Poppette must, and quite rightly too, have wondered how on earth Doudou could have made such a trip when he is never away from her side.

It's not the cheapest of gifts....and I did find myself wondering if I couldn't have created something of similar quality myself with Photoshop and a little patience!!! Still, it’s definitely worth thinking about as a gift if you want something highly personalised and original and your Photoshop skills are as lacking as mine.


  1. What a wonderful idea and gift, even if you two do like it more! Geoff STILL has his personalized book like that, typewriter font and all, and we read it to Kaya, which is quite fun. it will be a relic to cherish! I want to see it...send me a few pics!! xoxo

    1. Hi Tamara... Somehow I missed this comment from you!! Sooo sorry. Will take some pics for you and send them over. Hope you, Kaya and Geoff are all happy and well :-)
