Miggins & B Reward Charts – Review and Giveaway

March 8, 2016

I’ve been given a fabulous opportunity to try Miggins & B reward charts… and what’s better, you now have the chance to win one!
During the last month, Dexter has had moments of quite testing behaviour, sulks and tantrums. I think it was mainly as he adjusted to Paisley being in our lives and no longer being the sole focus of my attention but with the amount of time I was spending dealing with the demands of a new born, he started to act out and was getting quite hard to deal with. I tried to give him all of my attention while she slept but then when she woke up, he would act out again. Don’t get me wrong, he wasn’t bad, he was just defiant and testing the boundaries. So we needed a way to discourage his new found ‘attitude’ (for want of a better word) and to encourage his normal, sweet, well behaved, polite side. Reward charts

I showed Dexter the choices of reward charts available from Miggins & B. Each of the charts follow the idea of earning fun stickers that add to the story or scene. They are A2 in size and made of PVC so quite hard wearing. There is a place at the bottom of the design to hold the stickers that are yet to be earned. These are reusable so your child can choose where to place them and then have fun moving them around too. The reward charts cost £12.50 each and come in a choice of 6 colourful designs.Screen Shot 2016-03-08 at 09.30.24

I already knew which of the reward charts he would choose but gave him the option anyway. I wanted to get him excited about it from the start.

As suspected, he chose the space themed one. With this, he gets to collect aliens, flying saucers and astronauts and stick them in the scene. His final sticker is the fire or booster for the rocket.

He wanted it straight away, as you’d expect so I had to explain that he had to wait for the post man to bring it. Anybody that has a toddler knows they don’t do patience very well. When it arrived, Dexter was very excited to open it.  They come rolled up with a small band round them and then some waxed paper to protect it. It also comes with a sheet giving tips of the best way to use it.

We wanted to get him excited by it and into it straight away but didn’t want to make it too much of a challenge to earn stickers so we told Dexter that any time I thought he was being good, he would get a sticker. Straight away I noticed a change. We started with a low target too. We used the 4 astronauts and the booster. We talked about how once he’d got the rocket booster stuck on the rocket he could have a treat. He was very eager to get sticking so it was quite easy at first.

Every time he had a bit of a paddy about something, I spoke to him calmly and explained that it was no way to earn stickers. He caught on quite quickly. It took about 2 days for him to earn his first treat –  a Peppa Pig colouring pack. His behaviour has massively improved since we got the chart. Maybe thats just coincidence, maybe it was just a phase or maybe the reward chart has really helped. Either way I’m happy. Now that we’ve cracked that issue we are using it to try and reward good eating habits. He doesn’t always want to eat his dinner and when he does, he picks at his favourite bits. So every time he eats a reasonable amount of his meal, he earns a sticker. We are still working on a low target of 5 and he has already earned himself a new yellow digger toy. This challenge is a bit harder for him but it’s still working so far.

As we continue to use it, we will change what we reward Dexter for, we will make it harder to earn the stickers and give him higher number to aim for. He really loves it so far so I hope we continue to have success with it.
