Wow Toys Reward Chart

If you follow me on Twitter or facebook you'll know I have been struggling with Eva's behaviour. I can't pin point a time when she started becoming a bit difficult. It was certainly before Ophelia was born. She's not terribly naughty, it's more of a case of not listening. I think she thinks she's a grown up and she can do what she likes. She's quite independent.

I knew with Ophelia being born that I would have to attempt to address Eva's behaviour. I used a reward chart to help potty train Eva and that worked incredibly well so I thought that I'd give that a try.

I was lucky enough to be asked to review a Wow Toys reward chart. I picked the fairies one for Eva as this is more suited to what she's into at the moment. There's also a racers one and a dino one. 




This reward chart is way more special than your average sticker chart. It's an actual interactive chart with 3 Wow Toys as treats. There's a magnetic star tracker for your child to move along the fairy garden path when they are being rewarded for good behaviour. The treats are rewarded at stars 1, 5 and 10. 



The toys inside are a fairy figure, a unicorn figure and a chariot. I knew this would be a fab incentive for Eva as she loves nothing more than being given a treat.



We used the reward chart for when Eva helped me out with 'mummy' tasks such as helping to change her sister's nappy, putting toys away from the floor, behaving whilst I was breast feeding etc.

It worked a treat. In fact, it worked a bit too well. I found Eva was constantly trying to carry out tasks and then would run off towards her chart. She would have completed it in half a day if she could. We had to change it so that she could only move along the fairy garden path once a day.

I really liked the fact that the chart has a pop out hole meaning you can hang it anywhere. We hung ours on our kitchen door. 
 
I'd recommend this reward chart for anyone having behavioural issues. It's a fab incentive for pre - schoolers to complete tasks. I love the fact that it's brightly coloured and stands out. It immediately looks exciting and inviting to a toddler. It's everything you'd expect from Wow Toys. The figures are super safe for children to play with. They are also compatible with all their other toys. Not only is it great for teaching children to listen to and act upon commands but it's great for encouraging role and imaginative play and sensory development. 

You can buy Wow Toys from a range of stockists such as Amazon and Tesco. Check their website for a full list of places.

It honestly worked wonders for us. The only problem is she's now misbehaving again. Note to self I must order another one asap.

  1. What a great idea! They use medals at nursery and all the kids are desperate to help now. I'm not complaining either, as it's really had a great impact at home too

  2. This is such a fab idea!! We have just implemented a reward chart for Darcie as we're struggling a little with her attitude. Two weeks in and she is doing great!! xxx

  3. This is a great idea. We've had trouble with my middle one since my youngest was born. Maybe I'll give this a shot.

  4. Great idea - I'm about to give birth to my second so something like this might be worth going with for my eldest. Homemade Reward Charts have always helped us through any tough phases such as potty training and cot to bed transition and I imagine welcoming a second baby into the family is quite an adaption that needs to happen!

  5. Great to hear it worked so good for you. I love the idea of the magnetic tracker so they can see their progress and get involved with moving it. I think rewarding positive behaviour is so much better than simply doling out punishments for 'bad' behaviour. x

  10. This sounds fab, I think rewarding good behaviour is so powerful. I like the idea of doing one move per day to really incentivise good behaviour. I'm thinking that I could pop in extra toys to extend its use.

  11. I love this idea, I imagine it could be pricey in the long run for small tasks but for a set goal it's a great idea. xx

  12. what a great chart to incentivise children. I'm glad it has had a positive impact on your family.

  13. This is a great idea, at her age it's all about rewarding good behaviour and reinforcing good patterns. It gets harder when they get older, just written a post on doing this for older children. x
