Talltape Height Chart - A Review And Giveaway

I was recently contacted by Memories of Growing up and they asked if we would be interested in reviewing and hosting a giveaway for one of their products, Talltape. Now I have to be honest and admit that I have been pretty rubbish at recording the boys height. I did it a few times for Finley, once on the giraffe in his  old room (now Noah's) and once on his height chart he was given by Clarks shoes with his first pair of shoes. They no longer give these out to my knowledge and experience. And with Noah I have never recorded his height. I know naughty mummy.

So being contacted and asked to review Talltape I thought this was the perfect chance to start, because its never too late.
"Talltape, the portable children’s height chart, helps you to keep an on-going record of your child’s height from birth all the way to adulthood. The perfect alternative to recording measurements on a wall or door, Talltape won’t get left behind or painted over – it just stays with you.
Compact and portable, it arrives two metres long and tightly rolled up – simply roll it the other way to straighten it out."

They have a beautiful website that is very easy to navigate and very fresh looking. I was asked to chose a design each for the boys so I went for the 'Tree' for Finley and the 'Animals' for Noah. They arrived in the post a few days later and I wasn't disappointed.

They were packaged in two plastic roll tubes with the Talltape rolled up inside. Along with the Talltape in the middle of each roll was a mini sharpie pen.

As per the instructions I unrolled the Talltape and rolled it the other way to straighten it out. Once it was rolled out I could see the design fully, and it is gorgeous. I started with the tree design for Finley. I led it on the floor and got him to lie down next to it. We decided to do it on the floor rather than put it on the wall as we are moving very soon so will wait to put it on the wall until we are in the new house.

The tree design is a tree all the way up the Talltape and on the tree, sat on branches, are children and animals. The design is just beautiful and so magical.

It was then onto Noah and the animal design. On this one there are animals all the way up the Talltape and they are all stood on each others heads. Again this is a beautiful design and just perfect for children. Writing on the Talltape is made easy with the sharpie as I know from previous experience what a pain writing on a height chart can be.

The chart measures up to 200cm/6' 6", both measurements are on the chart. Once you have recorded your child's height you can either put it on the wall or roll it back up and keep safe for next time.

There are 7 different designs to choose from and another is being added which I have 3 to giveaway.

We all love Talltape, the boys for its fun and magical design and me because its easy to store, you don't have to worry that it will get ripped off the wall and it can be treasured forever.

  1. This is wonderful and storing it safely so it doesn't get torn is a great idea.

  2. How cute! I don't keep track of my daughter's growth, and I really should! I like that these roll up and can go along with you.

    I entered the giveaway without reading the rules! I'm not from the UK. If I win, pass me by! Lol! ;) #mg

  3. How cool is this! I love that you can roll it out like a regular measuring tape, makes it so much more of a fun event. x #MarvMondays

  4. oh these are super cute! I was excited to enter but I'm not in the UK, I love this idea, I have been a naughty mummy at this too. Thanks for linking xx #mg

  5. We still tend to draw in the wall near our staircase!! Not very practical I know, it looks a bit messy, These are a great idea. Sarah #mg

  6. These look like a great idea! We have a folding measure that is designed as a similar idea - compact and easy to transport - but the pictures on these are so cute! #mg

  7. This is such a wonderful idea. We don't really have anywhere we can do a wall height chart and I hate to think when we move, it would have to stay so love this! Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays! Kaye xo

  8. What a lovely idea! I am also rubbish and then our current measuring thingy had to get taken down when my daughter was last sick and hallucinating thinking it was a crocodile about to eat her in the middle of the night! Maybe I should get one of these instead! Thanks so much for linking up to #coolmumclub lovely xx

  9. Oh how great are these. My parent would measure mine and my siblings height on the inside of the door, but obviously a height chart you can take anywhere would be fantastic. We couldn't really take the door with us when we moved. The designs are adorable!!! :)

  10. This looks fab! My son would be obsessed and they're beautiful designs!

  11. This is lovely! I've entered the competition! I love the design on it! #justanotherlinky

  12. What a lovely idea, looks like an ideal present for a new baby. I'm going to enter the giveaway in the hopes of winning for my new great-niece who is due any day now! #justanotherlinky

  13. Thanks for the post, awesome idea, too bad I can't go for the giveaway, I am in the US. I found post through #justanotherlinky.

  14. I love the idea of those. We have a piece of wall in our house that every year on their birthdays they get measured. Great review and thank you for hostessing.

  15. I love the animal design one, adorable! Thee are so lovely, I wish I could enter your competition, but I'll just have to see if it's possible to buy these from NZ :) #justanotherlinky

  16. I have got several marks on the livingroom door marking the hights of the children who lived here before we moved in!! I think their parenrs should have invested in something like this :-)

  17. These are lovely, we used to measure our girls on the garge wall so this is definitely a better idea ! #justanotherlinky

  18. How cute! We have a giant ruler we made when our first was born and it travels with us. I love keeping track of how little they were and how much they have grown each year!

  19. Very cute! We forgot about the whole chart business and actually put J against a wall and drew a faint line. Really naughty but it's carried on since. I don't think I ever want to paint that wall! Thanks for hosting x

  20. Great post I, let me share with everyone about a Height growth system: Growth-FlexV® Pro is a complete height correction system to improve height and posture naturally without the need for expensive surgeries or dangerous drugs.
