Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again. Best purchase ever!! My daughter is 3 and has inconsistently helped with unloading dishes, picking up toys, etc but now she is way more willing and asks to put up a button afterwards! We don't use it like a calendar through the days of the week, we double the assignments to maximize our opportunity to get buttons. Plus the 1 year old also loves to play with the magnets (supervized of course, these are swallow-able)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This for Encouraging Responsibility. I ordered two for our children 3 and 6. The oldest was already great at helping around the house, but I thought this may help her be more consistent. They only arrived last night and already both kids are excited to complete chores & good behavior in order to put their magnet on the boards. We love that there are both charts and good behaviours as well as two blank magnets for creating your own. I've let the kids know these are not toys, and our family will take time each night before bed to review what they accomplished that day and they can put their magnets on. This will also allow us a way to implement an allowance for the kids based on what they completed. I think this will be valuable for us to keep in the house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great rewards system I just bought this yesterday and my son has already earned some magnet. We haven't set up a firm system yet on how many magnets at weeks end will get him some sort of reward. I'm thinking that we will use screen time as a reward as he is getting a new game this weekend and he will want to spend every minute playing it, so to avoid too much screen time we might get some chores out of him :P Only problem so far with this is that when no accomplishment magnets are in use at the beginning of a week, they do not fit on the extra board, but very minor issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like this product I really like this product so far. We've only been using it with our daughter for a few weeks. The only complaint I have so far is I wish there would be a couple of the round magnets in each color with sad faces as she doesn't always deserve a awesome or super smiley face and she is a bit ocd so leaving it blank is an issue for her.
Date published: 2016-04-26
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Purchased 2 for our twins. Both warped severely that magnets won't stay much longer. We've had 2 weeks but warped 3 days in. Highly disappointed in QUALITY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product! This is excellent for teaching children to do things on their own. And to see their face light up once they see their accomplishments is wonderful! I highly recommend!
Date published: 2015-01-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I first used this for my 7 year old when he was 4. Now I have a 4 yr old who is hyperactive and this really helps to teach him good behavior by reaching for goals every day and receiving happy faces for every one he completes for the day. It helps us to focus on the positive instead of negative things. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!!!!!!! Since the day My Grand-daughter opened this, She has done everything in her heart to work on getting her tasks completed. It hangs in our living room, so it inspires self pride. She is 4, and uses the pictures to figure out which task is ahead of her. I love love love this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! My children love this and as do i! it helps my daughter understand her chores and keeps track of them. my younger son even loves playing with the circle faces with his cars and on the fridge. this is a great item for kids of all ages, even those who dont understand the concept just yet. love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool!! My children really enjoy this chart, they love being able to move the magnets when one is completed and it keeps me from having to remind them so many times, at the start of each week I let them pick and share what chores they will have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice We got this for my 6 year old for Christmas last year. Since she started using it, she is really happy and excited to help out around the house! I especially like the blank magnets that come with it. It has really helped with some behavioral issues as well!!
Date published: 2012-03-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this! We use this chore chart every single day. My kids earn 10 cents for each magnet that they earn by doing chores that are listed. They are 6 & almost 8 and find it very easy & fun to use. We have had awesome results. My kids look forward to their chores just so they can earn a smiley magnet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! My mom got this for my 3 year old. I wanted one as well to help give my daughter direction and start teaching her responsibility. She loves it and thinks it's fun and it helps me with getting her to do things she's told. Like most 3 year olds my daughter is stubborn, but she loves helping and keeping busy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for teaching responsibilty We have been giving our five year old an allowance for doing simple things like making his bed and putting his clothes in his hamper but I have been meaning to make a chart to keep track of the days and just never found time to do it. Then I saw this and bought it. It is wonderful! You pick the tasks that must be performed and they are as simple as stop whining which is the hardest for my five year old to get a smiley face for. When I hung this up and put the duties on it, I did it with my son so he knew what was expected of him. I couldn't believe how excited he was with it. He loves to get up in the morning and get himself dressed and make his bed. This is two tasks that he has and gets a Smiley face for. The duties can be tailered to any age and include things like share, apologize, no treasing etc. So far we have been using it for three months and he hasn't lost interest in it. Probably because his allowance is based on how he does on his responsibility chart. The only thing that I wish it had was a spot to track two kids. My two year old is too young for it yet, but someday soon we will want to implement this with him. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Like I answered above my only real issue, which wasnt really an issue at all with my children, but there are some small pieces! Other then that we love it. gave it to my kids as a gift and they loved the idea. My older son (8) says it helps keep him focused and in less trouble (lol) and my daughter (Just 5) for her its a proud/self esteem thing. She gets so happy when she can complete a task and put her magnet on the board. The best part about the product itself is that the course are interchangable and realistic for all different ages depending on the ones you pick. this chart board definately was not cheaply made, all you have to do is look at it and see its a high quality product and i dont have to worry about stickers all over my wall and cardboard flimsy choure charts from other stores!!! all around great product!! THANK YOU!!
Date published: 2011-12-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool ! ...although I wish... We love this product for all the same reasons that everyone mentioned!! IF I could change one thing it would be chart placement. It would easier for the Responsibility Chart to be on the bottom board, and the extras to be on the top board. My reason is that I have to place the board very low to the floor on the wall for my son to reach the Responsibility Chart. The extra pieces get in the way by being on the bottom board. Maybe this is just an issue in own house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So excited to find it! My children were so excited to get to work right away and have been very helpful around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from L-O-V-E IT!!! I absolutely adore this responsibility chart. I bought it about a year ago, and I still use it daily. At first, I chose which chores and behaviors I wanted my (now 3yo) daughter to work on. Now that she knows what they all say, she gets to pick. She would beg and plead to learn how to "show respect" and "keep hands to self." She gets excited when it's time to "take out trash." After a year, earning happy faces is still a big deal. In fact, I don't even have to ask her to make her bed in the morning. Whether or not it's a responsibility for the week, she makes her bed before coming down for breakfast! I hear other parents complain about the "terrible 3s," not me! I love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Sanity! I saw this product in the mall, and it seemed to be the answer to my prayers. We have 6 yr old twins and a 4 yr old. My huband and I are constantly battling with them to get the simplest tasks done, and they are constantly fighting, whining, etc. When I bought this and presented it to them, they were very excited to get started right away and haven't missed a beat. I printed out play money, and every day when they fulfill their responsibilities, I give them 1 play dollar. At the end of the week, they can "cash" in their money for a small reward of their choice, or save it for something bigger at the end of the month. I do hope this works for the long haul. We'll see how it goes. We're trying to reinforce positive behavior and responsibilities, but if they do forget and falter, they loose 1 smiley face with the chance to gain it back by doing better next time. I think this is well thought out and gives kids a sense of accomplishment and proud of their daily achievement. Every family should have one, and they would make really great Bday gifts too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loves being responsible! We recently bought this for our four year old. He never wanted to do anything for himself including simple things like getting dressed and brushing his teeth. This chart has activities that can be changed to be geared towards simple tasks for young kids or more complex chores such as dishes, laundry, etc. It has made my son proud that he can take responsibility for himself and gets rewarded with a smile at the end. It is a chart we will use for years to come. We are going to have to get another because even our 2 year old wants in on the responsibility action.
Date published: 2010-07-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! No more nagging! Love, love, love this product! As parents we got tired of nagging or felt guilty when we let their chores slide. We don't tie it to their allowance, however. We give them an allowance to teach them about money. We make them do chores because they're a part of the family and we all pitch in. So, at the end of the week if we've all been responsible the whole family gets a treat - going out for ice cream or renting a special movie. We decide in advance what we're working toward. (And if it's expensive we'll all agree on two weeks worth of responsibility). They love the input they have. If they need it, they can always earn extra money by asking for more responsiblity, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids as young as 2 can use it My kids are all preschoolers and love this chart. They like putting the magnets on and it gives us a chance each day to both praise and to discuss what needs more work. I've seen it work on our 3 and 4 year old when we say "you need to work on not whining/sharing" and the for the rest of the week, they're much better. I wish there were tiles for "Obeying," "No Jealousy" and "Accepting Mom's Decisions," but we just write those on the blank tiles provided.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sanity Saver I have a very willful child, she likes to turn everything into a fight. The worst things were keeping her hands to herself, cleaning up her room and getting ready for bed. I was tired of the screaming matches and I was at wits end because nothing seemed to get through to her. This product saved our household. My daughter responds amazingly well to getting smiley faces. I have the board set up with the smiley faces on a rating system, so she can tell when she could have done a better job. Each day she does what she needs to do the rating gets better. If she has done a good job at the end of the week she gets a special treat. The better she has done the bigger the treat. Since we started this she has stopped hitting kids at school when she is frustrated, stopped arguing about picking up her room - she even cleans between play times now and no more screaming matches before bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great help! it is really great tool to teach your kids be responsible for their task i have 2 months using it, and my daughter still gets excited because if she has all her tasks done by the end of the week she will go out to a special place to have fun with the family it keeps her motivated to act good. and is a good size for all the activities involved great product loooooveee it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Idea! This is a great idea, we've only used it for a few days, but our daughter loves being able to put the magnets on herself, and we change it up every couple of days, so she has different goals. I also LOVE that it came with 2 blank magnets, so we went on the computer and printed up our own tasks that we really want her to work on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Awesome My son looks SO forward to "magnets" at the end of the day. We use it as a reminder during the day, too. IE, "If you don't share with your brother, you won't get your magnet." It really helps! Perfect.
