My Golden Ticket Personalized Book

By now you may have noticed our love for personalized books. Of course we love all types of books, but there’s something extra special about seeing your own name in print. My kids keep their “special” books on their own shelf, and they love to point out their names to me every time they read them.

That’s why we’re big fans of Wonderbly around here. Wonderbly specializes in uniquely personalized books for boys and girls, and their newest volume, My Golden Ticket: A Journey into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, is no exception.

We already have several books from Wonderbly, but I have to admit I was really looking forward to checking this one out in particular. I grew up reading Roald Dahl stories, and of course Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator were faves. What child doesn’t dream about visiting a magical chocolate factory with a river of liquid chocolate, a candy mine, and a toffee apple orchard?

Wonderbly’s newest personalized book is created in the style of a scrapbook journal, with each page decorated with keepsakes like the famous Golden Ticket, colourful and whimsical candy wrappers, posters, and a map of the factory. Note that the images are printed directly on the paper; they’re not separate pieces attached to the page. 

Each page contains hand-lettered descriptions of some of the rooms your child can visit in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. With magical names like the Great Flavor Fairground, the Rainbow Drop Room, the Rock Candy Mine, the Inventing Room, the Juicing Room, and the Vitaministry (where vitamins are added to chocolate), kids will love poring over all the fanciful details packed into this sweet book.

The book ends with a personalized Oompa-Loompa song based on the letters of your child’s name and a giant custom Wonka bar named for your child. My Golden Ticket is perfect for any kid with a sweet tooth. So yeah, basically everyone.

Like all of Wonderbly’s books, you can preview My Golden Ticket online before ordering. Just enter your child’s name and gender and an optional guest’s name (I got to go along with my girls on their chocolate adventure!), and you can see exactly how each page will look. It’s just like flipping through the book in person! Try it now by heading over to preview your child’s personalized copy of My Golden Ticket.

My Golden Ticket ships worldwide and comes in both softcover ($39.99 CAD) and hardcover ($44.99 CAD) versions with a gold foil-debossed cover and heavy, high-quality 150gsm paper that will stand up to lots of repeat readings. Order through my Wonderbly coupon link to save 15% off your first book!

  • Another one of their great books would be The Little Boy Or Girl Who Lost Their Name, but I must say Willy Wonka is my all time favourite and I would love to win this book for my granddaughter, honestly I think I would enjoy it

  • Thanks for another great giveaway.A Letter for the Littlest Bear is another one of their books i would like.

  • I would love to give the personalized book “A Letter for the Littlest Bear” because my nephew has a stuffed bear as his best friend and it would fit into the theme quite well.

  • The Little Boy Who Lost Their Name sounds like a great book and this would be for my grandson. 🙂

  • The incredible tergalactic journey home for my 3 year old space man, a letter for the littlest bear for my 18 month old, and the Christmas snowflake for my boys to share.

  • Another personalized book that I would love to give to my niece would be The Christmas Snowflake. Especially as Christmas is coming.

  • Definitely the little girl who lost her name for my daughter – heck I want to make one with my own name! You’re never to old for picture books.

  • I would love to get the Christmas Snowflake for my son as he loves winter, snow and the holidays, so this would be a great fit for him.

  • I would love to get “The Little Boy Who Lost His Name” as I have a young man in my family who is an avid reader. I think the title would really pique his interest.

  • I would choose “The Little Boy who lost his name” and give it to Ben, one of our great grandchildren. Ben is nearly 4, speaks Arabic and English. Thinks he is six like this sister. He is very intelligent. He is, at present, being a super-hero. I think he might love this book.

  • I love the Wonderbly Kingdom of You book. It would be great to read this with my daughter when she’s older so she can remember all of her favorite things.
