The Reward Box* is lovely alternative to the more traditional wall chart. We have tried wall charts in the past without much success so we were intrigued to see how interested Rose would be with a box instead.
The box comes in two designs; fairy and pirate. We opted for fairy as I thought it would sit a bit prettier on Rose’s bedroom shelf but she would have equally loved the pirate one – this is the girl that asks for dinosaur facepaint instead of butterfly wings!
The box arrives really nicely packaged in a presentation box, my first thought was what a beautiful and unique gift this would be and suitable for a wide age range too.
The box itself is wood, not at all flimsy and really well made, it’s obviously had a lot of care and attention taken into consideration with design, the look of it and shape being immediately appealing. Rose couldn’t wait to investigate and post the silver wooden stars through the slot in the top. She spent a really long time just looking at it and figuring it out whilst I explained to her that we would personalise it with the stickers we were sent and that it was to be her special box for when she’s a good girl.
The idea is that you use the stars in the same way you would a wall chart, you could also add in surprise gifts or collect stars daily and exchange them for a special reward at the end of the week. I really love the idea of this and think there’s scope to encourage the use of Rose’s imagination at the same time as using rewards to incentivise good behaviour.
The box could also be used as a ‘worry box’ or a place for you and your child to swap notes to each other. I’ve done similar with my older children and this would be a really lovely way of sharing feelings, sometimes it’s much easier for children to write down their thoughts rather than expressing them verbally so this is a great way of encouraging all-important communication.
When the time comes I also thought The Reward Box would be the perfect place to leave teeth for the tooth fairy and see what surprise there is in the morning, as I said there’s loads of scope to develop imaginative play.
I am really impressed with The Reward Box and Rose adores it too it will be a wonderful keepsake for her. It’s sitting proudly on her shelf and is currently housing a new Toy Story soft toy as she’s been really poorly this week and I wanted to give her a little pick me up!
It’s well worth popping over to The Reward Box site as there are some brilliant items and some really good price saving bundles. At the moment if you order a box you will get a personalisation kit worth £5 for free. We also have a really cool wall hanging to show you in another post which is currently in the sale on the site.
