The Victoria Chart Company Review & Giveaway


I love charts!  I like nice lists with check marks next to each item.  It makes me feel like I have accomplished something when I can check it off.

Kids love to feel a sense of accomplishment too!  They feel proud when they complete a task and make mom or dad happy.

The Victoria Chart Company's charts are easy-to-use and fun for children.  Their reward charts are age-specific and cover life stage developments in young children’s lives.  Most importantly, their reward charts can be customized to the individual need of your child. 

The Victoria Chart Company has charts for families, schools, and organizations.  Some of the charts for families include:

My Big Star Chart for ages 1+

My Growing Up Chart for ages 4+ 


My Credit Chart for ages 7+.  This is the chart we received.  We have it posted on the fridge so Funny Bunny can easily see what she has to do for the day.


There is also a Good Night Sleep Chart, Vacation Journal for kids, and a Meal Planner for mom.

My Thoughts: After receiving our chart I mounted it on our fridge for easy access.  Most of the activities the chart lists are everyday chores that will probably be easy for most children to accomplish and check off.  Some listed will be a little harder to achieve and there are two spaces to list your own chores.  I listed that Funny Bunny feed our dog, Maisy, and that she tidy her bathroom.  Because I would expect her to check almost every item each day, she made the Bronze and Silver Rewards fun.  Once she gets 12 check marks she can play with the electronic device of her choice.  And after completing the whole chart for 7 days, she gets to wash the car {she loves washing the car so it really is a reward for her}!  She seems to be enjoying checking off each completed activity. 

The chart is sturdy and comes with a dry-erase marker and sticky mounting pads.  I had no problems at all wiping the marks off with a paper towel.  The sticky pads seem to be working well but I do wish it also came with magnetic strips. 

Thoughts of a 9-Year Old:  My chore chart motivated me to work harder. It is dry-erase so I can use it the following week., too. I'd never done twelve or thirteen of those things [all in one day] before without the chore chart. It makes work fun as long as I get to check off the answers! ;)

Find Out More:  You can find out more online at The Victoria Chart Company.  Charts range from $5.99 to $18.99 and you can also purchase extra reward stickers.  If you like them on Facebook, you can get a 15% off coupon code.

I would love one of these charts (maybe even two!). It would make it easier for my boys to keep track of their chores, etc....especially my youngest. He has learning challenges, but likes routine.

I like that it can be hung on the fridge so everyone has easy access to it and can see what has/hasn't been done.
