Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Modeled after the popular Taggies baby blankets, My First Taggies Book is a soft fleece picture book with eight different looped ribbon tags to rub and pull and chew. The content of the book is very simple: three two-page spreads featuring a plush kitty, bunny, and puppy, along with accompanying rhymes. "Sweet dreams, little kitty,/ Rock-a-bye and nighty night." The point here is not the plot line, but the delightfully cuddly feel of the book and the interactive tags. Designed to be tactile and visually stimulating, each tag has a different print or texture, much like the satin edges of blankets or clothing labels that so intrigue babies and toddlers. A gentle and safe way to introduce the very youngest "readers" to the world of books. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

This is a must for a baby shower gift!
Brenna N Levings
I think they should have made the tags bigger, they are a bit small and maybe brighter colors would be better too...

This is a wonderful book that my nine-month-old has enjoyed since we received it as a gift when he was 2 months old. I don't understand the other reviews that say "it isn't much of a story". "Sweet Dreams", as the title implies, is a bedtime book. And it is perfect for that. Short, simple, engaging but not exciting, it is oh-so-soft and very comforting. My son loves it. He touches each animal ("kitty", "bunny", & "puppy") as we read, and I even stroke his face with the book once at the end as a final soother. It is the second of the two books we read at bedtime, the first being Baby Animals, which is a more active "Tough & Feel" book, but a good transition from active to night-night. I highly recommend Sweet Dreams for anyone looking for a comforting quiet book for bedtime reading with their baby. At nine-months, he seems far from outgrowing it; we will enjoy this book for some time to come.

An update at 13 months: still a wonderful way to go to bed. He can be teething or excited or anything other than sleepy. But when we start this book, he settles right down and gets snuggly and sleepy. After all, kitty, bunny and puppy are asleep in their beds, so it must be a good idea!

I think this is a perfect gift for any baby shower or new addition to your family. Especially for those who are adopting a child International like we did. We wheren't sure how much stimulation our daughter received in her Social Welfare Institute in China and so we brought this colorful book along. The book is a soft flannel and each tag is has a different color and texture and what child doesn't like tags of any sort. If you find this book in the book store or sometimes in a gift shop you can choose the colored tags and textures, for each one is different.

As a reading book, this is not and I am not really sure that's what this book was intended to be. I think this book is for stimulation of your babies sences. Can't say enough about this book and the taggie blanket, you just can't go wrong bringing to a baby shower on as one of the items packed in your already full bag on your way to be united with your daughters and or sons!

My eight month old daughter recently received this book as a gift along with another brand of cloth book. I thought the other book would be a hit because it had crinkly sounds, bright colors and more textures/3D pieces. But no, she prefers this book by Taggies. Like other commenters have stated, this is more like a toy than a book - she likes to hold it and chew on it while rolling around on the floor. However the simple (VERY simple) text when read aloud has a lovely repetive sing-song sound that she enjoys and it seems to relax her. The Taggies themselves don't get much play from my daughter - I think they are too small and not silky or textured enough. The info tag is the only one she plays with, but she loves the soft fleece fabric against her face. It's not really a bedtime book as that it is so very short and simplistic, but it's a fun toy to add to the arsenal.

Someone gave this to my daughter on her 1st birthday and she hasn't been interested in it at all. I wish she had gotten it earlier because I know she would have loved it.

This is a terrific book. My 10 month old got it for Christmas and some people thought it was too young for him, but no way, he really enjoys the simple pictures the soft texture and chewing on all those tags! This is a must for a baby shower gift!

My six-month-old loves her Taggies Book. (She received it when she was four months old.) Now, she likes to hold it and rub the tags. It is perfect size to lay across her lap while she is in her car seat. Very nice.

My 6 month old daughter loves this book!

She loves to play with the information tags on all of her toys and bibs because like my husband said, "they're on everything, it's very consistent." Her all-time favorite toy is her taggie blanket, which is such a clever invention--of course a mother came up with it! Someone gave it to me at my baby shower, and it will now be my standard shower gift. It is just the right size for her to cuddle with, and all of the brightly colored tags can hold her attention for a very long time. She loves to poke her finger through the loops and to put them in her mouth. (My favorite thing about it is that it's very easy to clean.)

So when someone gave her this book recently, I knew it would be a big hit. We took a 6 hour car drive this weekend, and she chewed happily on her taggie book the entire trip! (That makes it our favorite book now as well!)

I received a taggie blanket at my baby shower and my daughter loves it, so when I saw this book I bought it. She loves it, it as well. I find this works well in the stroller or backback and she likes to chew on all the tabs (tho' mostly the information tag, as it is the biggest). It cleans easily in the wash. It isn't really much of a "story" -- this is mostly a book-shaped toy. But she gives it lots of attention and it is a wonderful distraction for in the car or playpen. My son, who is two years old, thinks the loops are funny and likes to stick his fingers in them, but this is really an item for a baby. I don't imagine a toddler interested in real books would get much out of it.
