…it took a while, but here we are and are very proud to welcome you to TimTimTom.com and our personalised, bilingual children’s stories. Passing a love of languages onto our children is very important to us, but we could simply not find bilingual books that our kids seemed to enjoy reading. We noticed in our own families – and then after thorough research – that children read more and absorb more detail and words, when reading (or listening to) personalised books.
Combining these two as tools for language learning and inspiring kids to have more fun while reading is why TimTimTom.com was originally created.
TimTimTom – Playfully Reading and Learning in 2 Languages
First Bilingual Personalised Book
We have now launched our first book: An Underwater Adventure in which the child becomes the hero of the story. He/She gets to ride on a dolphin’s back and has to try to save a turtle tangled in a fishing net. A perfect personalised gift for a baby, a child in a multi-lingual family or a great aid for children learning a new language.
- It is bilingual because you can select any two of ten available languages, to tell your child’s story. Currently available in English, Mandarin (simplified and traditional), Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
- It is personalised because your child becomes the hero of the story: his or her name and image (hair colour, skin tone, eye colour), can all be customised.
Beautifully Illustrated Personalised Books
You can choose from more than a hundred customization variations for the appearance of the child and from ten languages. We have designed our hardcover books to be high quality and long lasting, so that you and the kids can read and enjoy the books over and over again.
A bilingual and personalized story that will spark your kid’s imagination and language ability.
You can customize the name and look of the child and choose any combination of two out of ten available languages.
(Some available language combinations: English-Spanish, English-German, English-Russian, English-Chinese, English-Portuguese, English-Italian, English-Dutch, English-French, French-German, Russian-German, Spanish-German.)
The books are now also available in one language
