The Reward Box - Review & Competition



Recently I was contacted asking if we would like to review The Reward Box. With Noah turning 2 last week and with the terrible two's and tantrums on the horizon the opportunity couldn't of come at a better time.




The idea behind The Reward Box is rather straight forward and a fun and unique take on the traditional sticker reward charts. At the moment it comes in two different designs, a pirate chest and a fairy house both of which are beautifully crafted and made from solid wood. Included is an organza bag of 20 silver wooden stars, stickers to personalise your box if you wish and also IOU cards. 



The Reward Box is suitable from the moment you think your child would understand the concept and to 5 years and onwards. I can think of many different ways this reward system could work and our first port of call will be with potty training. Every time Noah goes to the potty we will pop a star in to the chest and once it's full he will be given a nice treat. I much prefer this concept than the typical sticker charts as it's more fun and the product itself is beautiful.



The Reward Box costs £35 which on paper I would of thought was rather pricey but upon receiving the product I would of been more than happy to pay that price as everything is such fantastic quality.

I'm so impressed with The Reward Box as it's not just a good idea in theory but it's an idea that works, an idea that will interest your child and an idea that will be used for years to come! 

I have teamed up with The Reward Box to run a competition along side this review and I am so excited to be able to offer you guys this chance!

  1. My worst mishap was very early on with a nappy change - I made the grave error of leaving a bottom unshielded whilst turning round to grab a nappy (had the ankles in the other hand). Of course this was the time she chose to projectile poo all over the whole nursery, had to wash everything in the blast zone and was still finding flecks I'd missed for weeks. NOT good! x

  2. When my eldest daughter was small she drew a picture and asked me if she could 'put it up' I was engrossed in a tv programme and said yes. When I walked out into the dining room she had glued her pictures to the wall ! I couldn't tell her off, ....

  4. Chatting too much with other mummies and forgetting to give my daughter lunch! Luckily it was right at the start of weaning, so she didn't really notice and enjoyed a nice long feed instead :)

  5. My biggest mishap happened in the supermarket. Poorly baby had been nursing like crazy. He then decided to have a super long sleep. I forgot to wear breast pads...need I say more.
    More recently with my second baby, at the Rugby World Cup I was feeding my baby. He pulled off and I was too engrossed in the game to look. It was only when I heard the man in front as if it was raining (on a glorious sunny day), that I realised my letdown was more powerful than I thought. Oophs!!

  7. Playfully tossing my daughter in the air without realising I was in a doorway. Nearly forgetting my child in the car when registering her birth. But the best has to be when I left her in the playroom with a closed pot of paint, I returned to find a smurf.

  12. when my oldest was ten she had a friend coming and told me that morning she wanted to move bedrooms. the other bedroom was fine but we had a spare small tumble dryer in there from my grans house. she felt that this spoiled the room and we decided to put it into the attic!!! she of would not go up because there may have been spiders. so i went up and the tumble was quite light so i got hold of the plug and lifted if all the way up on my own. unfortunitly just as it got to the hatch the plug cane away in my hand and fell unto my daughter head. so stright to hospital were she told her tale and the dr's thought it was hilarious. thankfully she was fine but the tumble was broken but you cares as long as she was fine

  15. I was busy washing up in the kitchen and I asked my eldest (who was 2 and a half at the time) what he was doing (he's a curious child!) He said that he was drawing on some paper. I didn't think anything of it...until I walked into the living room and when he said paper he really meant walls! Thankfully the markers were washable and those magic eraser cleaning things really do work!

  16. The worst was when my daughter was only a few months old and she fell off a chair in the sitting room and hit her head on the hard floor. She was fine after a couple of minutes of crying but I didn't stop shaking for the rest of the day! :(

  30. Yep!! Jack is known for his crazy hair.....Mummy found Daddy clippers and decided to give it a go.....BIG MISTAKE, he ended up with awful wheel arches and then the no 2 guide fell off mid cut, we ended up having to give him a no 1 all over, poor boy. Needless to say I'm no longer allowed anywhere near his hair now :-)

  31. I am constantly forgetting to put my sons hearing aids in in the morning for school! Like you, by breakfast so much has happened, and my brain is so busy remembering everything I get so forgetful! It doesn't help that my son hates wearing them because he has a sensory disorder so he doesn't even remind me, it is an added bonus for him if I forget. By 910am I am getting a call from school reminding me (bad mummy!) Lucky for me I live opposite the school so I am very lucky

  32. What a great idea! I have two young girls aged 3 and 6 who tend to test the waters a bit, shall we say! this would be great to teach them that good behaviour is rewarded. :)

  35. I kept forgetting to put a change of clothes in Bella's changing bag. I thought we'd never really needed to use them.. until my husband looked after Bella while I went to a wedding. He came to join me at the wedding early evening with Bella. When he arrived in the pitch black car park he realised Bella had pooped. She had pooped so much that it was in her socks! He wasn't too phased as he is such a calm person, until he realised that there were no spare clothes in the changing bag! Bella was covered in poop, it was pitch black and he was trying to change her on the back seat of the car which isn't easy! He ended up having to make a trip to Sainsburys with Bella wrapped in a blanket and covered in poop, to buy new clothes so he could finally get to the wedding!!

  36. The most recent one happened yesterday when i took my 15 week old little girl to the doctors. I had to take her babygrow off so that the doctor could listen to her chest but i forgot that i'd drawn on hers and all my childrens feet to enter a competition. The doctor said " What's that?" and i just said "oh, it ok, i just drew on her" with no more explanation.

  37. This just happened last week, my 3 year old little boy told me he needed a pee pee and poo poo so he went to the toilet and came back out and goes look Mummy I found a raisin and gave me it, I never thought anything of it because he had just been eating raisins before he had went to the toilet so I took it and said thanks thinking he was just being nice and sharing, lifted it up to put in my mouth and the closer it got there was a strong horrible smell, so I turned to my son and said where did u her this raisin and he said "I picked it from my bum" !!!!!! Close call, VERY close call.

My son is 5 now but afew yrs ago we were in tesco getting a big food shop and i sat him in the trolley .He was getting bored and playing up and as we walked past the toy isle he started whining for a peppa pig toy so i let him look at it and got distracted so i forgot to take it off him to return to the shelf. Half an hour later we had a full trolley of shopping and as we walked out the store the security gaurd started running after us shouting excuse me at the top of his voice . He then took me back into the store to ask why i was stealing a peppa pig!! I explained that i meant to put it back bit im sure he thought i was a shoplifter. Even now i still see him watching me every time i go in the shop. Soooo embarrassing !!

Very embarrassing having to crawl around in the window, being watched by what seem like hundreds, trying to retrieve her.

  78. We've had many, and I'm sure there will be plenty more, but here's some of my favorites:
    - A disastrous swimming lesson in which he pulled the emergency call bell 4 times, causing a herd of physiotherapists to run into the hydrotherapy pool where we have our lessons, then after the lesson he snuck off and did a poo on the leg of a hoist that was stored in the changing room- luckily I found it!
    - Managing to pour laundry washing liquid all over his head when he was a few months old.
    - Watching him run down an aisle in a supermarket, pick up a cooing apple, take big bite out of it, then returning it to the display.
    -Him hitting a waitress on the bottom when we were out at lunch- I'm sure she thought it was me!
