I have three brothers, and clearly remember the rivalry and glee when our birthdays came around and we would compare our heights against our siblings’ at the same age. My mom still has the beautifully-painted wooden height chart at her home, which her grandchildren now love measuring themselves against their parents’ heights.
I don’t know if the Wiggly and Giraffe height charts from Skinny laMinx will reach family heirloom status, but I’m sure your kids will enjoy the annual ritual of marking off their growth on them. Our little models, Finn and Emslie got the idea straight away!
We’re selling our height charts along with a rather ingenious magnetic hanging system called Artgrip, designed and produced by some local blokes we know.
Two metal strips, one with a hole for a hook, are placed behind the paper, and then a strip of wood (in plain, white or black) with magnets set into it is placed on the front of the paper, holding it all in place without the need for a frame. Also, you can hang something of any length (like a height chart) with this system. So clever!
