I was trying to make a photo book for my nephew, and could not figure out which one to purchase on amazon bc I was getting conflicting input from all of the different reviews of these little books. My two primary criteria for the book are: 1) safe for baby (soft, no edges, no plastic chemical smell) and 2) number of pages to hold ACTUAL photos.

I actually ended up going out to stores (Walmart and Babies R Us) to look at the product because I couldn't tell what was true online. I compared two. One is a product by "Bright Starts" from Walmart which is identical to the Baby Einstein Photo Book sold on Amazon.com. The second is this one by Sassy that I'm reviewing, which is sold on Amazon. This book, the Sassy brand, is the hands-down winner from the two.

The Sassy book has no chemical smell, the plastic is very soft (and I wouldn't think twice if my nephew sucked on it), and there are seven 4x6 pockets with one wallet size pocket on the cover. The book isn't stiff or crinkly (it's made of very soft, smooth, matte plastic) when you bend it, so I think it will hold the pictures nicely inside for the ultimate tough baby test... The other product - similar to the Baby Einstein, has the same handle and a similar cover as the B.E. book. It has a VERY strong, toxic plastic smell, the plastic edges are a little sharp and could feasibly cut soft baby skin, and there is only space for five 4x6 photos and one wallet on the cover. The book is stiff and made of shiny, sticky plastic which seems to stick together quite easily. I think that's why it comes with paper between the pages, where the Sassy one does not.

I have not given the book to my nephew yet, that will be the ultimate test. But with regards to the actual product from a consumer point of view, buy this product over the other photo books. I think it's a better product.

Although this little book is excellent in theory, the fact that there's no way to protect the pictures from the copious amount of drool to which they will be subjected diminishes its utility in practice. A simple tuck-in flap or some other design trick would ideally protect the pictures, which get chewed (and chewed and chewed) and ultimately destroyed in this mouth-friendly toy. It's not a big deal to replace the pictures, but the chemicals that dissolve make me nervous and end up sort of corroding the pages, making the sleeves stick together so much it's hard to insert new pictures.

I contacted the manufacturer to see what chemicals were used in the materials/plastic in this toy since I saw some feedback online stating it had PVC and phthalates. Good news is the newest version of this book is BPA, PVC and phthalate free! -Oh and it's a great little toy, my 9 month loves it!

Until today, if I had rated this product, it would have gotten 4 stars (I would have deducted 1 star because the plastic bunches up on the pictures). I purchased this look book at Target about three months ago. This morning my 7 month-old daughter was playing next to me and outsmarted the book. She ripped the clear protective sheet clean off one of the photos. I'm thankful I was sitting here with her, or else she'd have had either the clear piece or the picture in her mouth.

I purchased this album because I wanted to have an album for my son that had pictures of my extended family in it. This album is great! It's soft and durable, and the side are not so sharp that you can cut yourself on it. My son brings it to me every day and wants to look at it. You may need to trim your 4x6 photos to fit them in the sleeves.

I cannot speak to the durability of this product, but I want to note that this album works great for care packages to children pending adoption. It fits nicely into a one-gallon size ziploc bag with room left over for other items. It took me a while to find the right one (taking reviews into consideration, of course) so maybe this will save a little trouble for someone else down the road.

I'd heard that babies love high contrast black and white images and that they're good for brain and vision development, so I was thrilled to find this look book. The book is just stiff enough so we can easily prop it open in front of our baby during tummy time or other floor play. She will just lie there and stare and stare at whatever image we open it to. Last night my husband picked the book up to turn the page and she immediately started squawking because she was enjoying looking at the current image so much.

We'll probably eventually use the look book for actual photos when she's tired of the black and white images, but I actually bought it for the black and white images; the photo pockets are just a bonus.

Thumbs up for this, I actually got this product because it was eligible for free shipping with other items if your order was over $25, but it turns out that it's a beautiful educational toy. You get to put 8 photos inside plus one for your baby on the cover of the album. It's well made and edges are soft so they won't hurt your baby, my baby loves chewing on it :). You can also change photos every now and then so your baby can get to know the names of family members. It's a lovely product, and i would very much recommend it. I also think most of the Sassy brand products are creative and are worth the money.

This product is great in two ways. The first is my 2.5 month old just loves to stare at the print on each page (large black and white graphics) and can grasp the pages. The second is the inserts for family photos are well made and durrable. I highly reccomend this product.

I bought this for my son because I wanted a photo album for him that he could play with and not destroy it! (Haha) He LOVES this book! I have another one sort of like it (the Baby Einstein Baby's Photo Book), but I like this one a little more. Unlike other baby photo albums, this one has black and white pictures and patterns underneath where you insert photos. My son LOVES to look at them, so I haven't even put pictures in it yet! He also likes to chew on the handle (the black part of it is sort of rubbery). It has held up really well to baby wear and tear!
