Among many of our popular items, the personalized growth chart continues to delight customers as an indispensable tool for families with growing children. What is a growth chart? It is a measuring device similar to a ruler that is secured at a fixed height from the floor and used periodically to measure a child’s stature as he or she grows taller.
Families often simply mark down their child’s height along a favorite door frame or even along a wall unless they have the good fortune of obtaining a nice growth chart instead. Kids get excited to see the progress they have made and how much taller they are each time you record their height. It’s good to have the kiddies measured in a planned fashion at regular intervals. You might want to measure them every six months or once a year on their birthdays.
So…instead of just having the children stand against the door frame or the corner of the wall, why not try one of My Bambino’s genuine wooden growth charts instead?
As one of our most popular newborn and first birthday gifts, the beautiful personalized growth chart hangs easily with a tack nail. It’s a great baby gift and keepsake, and in these busy times, it can serve as a modern day baby book.
My Bambino offers this sturdy wooden item in three finishes: white, natural, and espresso. You may also order the growth chart (in white) with cutouts along its length for sliding in your favorite photos.
The finish on our personalized growth chart is lovely enough in its own right, but the chart is absolutely beautiful once the design of your choice is applied. There are many design options to choose from depending on the age, gender, and personality of your child. Our designs are plentiful to match any decor, colors or interests.
Do you know a little princess? We have a princess design that features a crown, a magic wand with flowing ribbon, and a trail of magic dust with hearts and stars. Or how about a little future all-star? Our sports design includes a basketball, a soccer ball, a football, a baseball with bat and glove, and cute accents like blades of grass (outdoor sports) and “bouncy” dotted lines to indicate movement of the sports balls listed.
Our personalized growth chart is available in two different applications, hand-painted or
imprinted with the design of your choice. For your reassurance, both processes are non- toxic and permanent so that the design withstands whatever surprises it encounters.
With hundreds of designs from which to choose, we are certain that you will find something pleasing and fun! Whatever your choice, it is always with your child’s name either hand-painted across the top or imprinted vertically along the length of the item, enhanced by elements of the design you have selected.
The growth chart, which begins at 2′ 6″ from the floor, is an archival record that you can take with you if you move. Remember when our parents used to mark our height with a ruler and a pencil along the length of the door frame … and then at some point in time, the door frame would need to be refinished or replaced? Well, this popular item saves the door frame! And you will always have it with you wherever you go.
In addition, the personalized growth chart allows room to record details beyond date and age; for example, my kids have notes such as how many freckles Tali had at age three and how many teeth Caden had lost. These other interesting tidbits become precious memories for you and your children.
Several years ago, one of Tali’s really tall friends asked to have her height measured. We happily complied, and today that notation is a sweet memory now that Tali has grown into a pre-teen.
I had one customer that wanted to use a growth chart from birth (without having to wait for her baby to be old enough to stand up), so I suggested adding ribbon to the bottom and then adding the details of the infant’s monthly checkups. This customer-inspired idea would help to create memories right from the get-go.
As you can see, the personalized growth chart is a very versatile gift that you can enhance with your own notations to make it truly special and unique to your family.
