They are just like the vintage punch out valentine books I grew up with.
kenneth yount
This book was very nostalgic for me as these were the nice, fun, with sweet sayings and just plain cute Valentine's that were from my era.

I got these adorable valentines to send to family back home for fun and they were perfect.

I was at Borders yesterday and while walking through the children's section, happened to see this book on the Valentine book display table. I couldn't believe such a book was in print again, and of course bought it, for the price is GREAT...only $4.99 for 25 Valentine cards. I have seen vintage books like these, some not even complete, go for $40 or more on ebay.

I collect vintage Valentine cards and have quite a few. I bought these because I like to have old-fashioned looking cards for my children and myself to send to relatives and friends. My children are homeschooled, and so never have had a school Valentine party where they needed Valentines to trade. I was always glad, because the ugly offerings we see in the stores really disappoint...who really wants a Sponge Bob valentine???

This book is very nice for children. The cards have fuzzy flocking on them, like was popular years ago. The cards are very very easy for a child to punch out. Some require a fold or two, some require inserting a tab into a slot, like the cute one of the ducky in the washtub of water. The book also includes cutouts to make 8 envelopes for the cards you would want to put in an envelope. Overall, these cards are just so pleasant to look at, with cute Valentine sayings; I can't imagine any child, adult, or grandparent not being happy to receive one of these cards. And they are easy enough that a child feels like he is "making" something, yet it isn't complicated at all. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves vintage Valentines or who wants a better alternative to the modern Valentine card offerings.

This book was very nostalgic for me as these were the nice, fun, with sweet sayings and just plain cute Valentine's that were from my era. At 57 I'm raising another child...four years old now...and I will continue to search for like products for her to share with her friends and classmates. They will make memories for her and bring back fond memories to me. Publishers take note...give us quality...or at least the choice.

They were just like the valentines when I was little-in the 60's. A reminder of a kinder, gentler time and valentines for everyone in the class. You do have to make your own envelopes-just like in grade school. So they don't work too well for mailing, but I made a garland out of several strung together and loved it.

Truly these are all very cute valentine's cards. I was disappointed that there were only 8 envelopes. I had thought there were equal numbers. Some of the cards were just folded over and a small heart tab holds them closed, but others needed an envelope because of the cute 3-d pieces that were added to them, and there were more than 8 that needed to be in an envelope. I am glad I purchased this, but wish I had known and I could have bought additional envelopes at the store.

I needed Valentine's for a just turned 3 year old preschool class (some of the kids are still 2) as a way of introducing them to Valentine's Day. So each kid would receive one card. There are 11 kids in class which is good bc only 11 cards were really big and vibrant enough to catch their attention. 5 of the cars came with extra pieces that were adorable but not suitable for this age group. But they were perfect for the 4 teachers in the class. The remaining 6 or so cards were small and folded. Ok, but nothing to be wowed over. Finally the last 4 or 5 cards were small and didnt fold. Not worth giving to a 3 year old in my opinion. I did make extra copies of the envelopes to have enough. They were easy to make and held together well with glue stick. I cant wait for the kids to open them, teachers too, but just know that there are WOW cards and then just ok cards. Definitely easy to punch out and put together, except the one with the big heart.

I enjoyed displaying such a fun vintage item for Valentine's Day; my childhood was in the 40s and early 50s

and greeting cards of that era bring happy memories. My only complaint about the book was that the

Valentines fell out too easily, if I wanted the book intact.

I would like to see similar vintage products for other holidays and seasons.

I found these online last year and purchased them for my daughter to give to her 3 year old preschool class. I loved that they were not the character/product types like the ones you find in the stores. Those are pretty ugly- these are actually quite beautiful. They are old fashioned and sweet. The fact that they are punch-out and sometimes need a bit of easy assembling make them fun to "make". The price can't be beat for the number of valentines you get!

I used these to go on the tables for my wedding reception back last year in February. All the guests loved them and since we were an older couple, our friends that were our age, remembered them.....just like we did.
It gave a really nice touch to the tables & guests were encouraged to take them home as an additional keepsake.
