Our keepsake chick is a fantastic and extremely cute way to remember your child's babyhood. Made from the most cherished of your little one's old clothes and with personalised embroidery, it can sit on a shelf or hang on the wall. You can choose from large or small. The large chick can have up to 45 characters of embroidery, the small chick can have one name and a numerical date of birth (such as 'Olivia 24.9.14').
All of our keepsake animals come with an accreditation certificate which includes the child's name and date of birth, the large chick also comes in a lovely presentation box (we're afraid the little chick gets a bit lost in the boxes!). If you want to give one as a gift and can't get hold of the clothes, why not consider one of our lovely gift cards? Just pop in what embroidery option you want, then checkout and you'll receive an email telling you where to send the items of clothing.
We suggest you send in 2-3 babygrows or the equivalent amount in other clothing in order for us to create a large chick or just one baby grow for a small chick. The LoveKeepCreate small chick sits at approx 8 cm tall and has a ribbon loop for hanging it while the large chick is approximately 12-15cm tall. I am afraid that the Chick cannot be weighted to a birth weight as even the large size is not big enough, most of our other keepsake designs can be.
We can also add a little pouch internally to your keepsake, which contains a removable and re-recordable sound device, shaped like a heart. The device can be taken in and out of the pouch (which is fastened with velcro) and you can record a message which is played back whenever the device is squeezed. The device is approximately 6.5cm across and can be recorded over as many times as you like. This is a wonderful way to treasure special messages from loved ones to parents or vice versa, for the sound of heartbeats or any other treasured recording.
Once we receive the clothes from you it generally takes about six to eight weeks for us to get your finished item back to you. If you select our Express Service we can do it in under three weeks. If there is a special date you need it for please do make a note of this when you send in the clothes. Please contact us if your order is really urgent (under three weeks).
If you have got a lot of special requests and additions then, depending on the complexity, we may contact you to request an additional payment to cover the cost of making these.
While our keepsakes can be machine washed at 40 degrees, we would prefer that they are hand washed and dried naturally. Do not tumble dry. The stuffing is 100% CE tested polyester. As these can be delicate items, often made from very well-worn clothes, they can not be CE tested and therefore come with the following Warning: This product is not suitable for persons under the age of 14 years.
