As parents we so often want to record all of the milestones in our children’s lives. We diligently keep up with their baby books keeping track of all their firsts. We take a million pictures. We save the first lost tooth, locks of hair, baby shoes, etc. It is absolutely amazing to me how quickly my little one is changing and growing. She’s almost 2 1/2 and it seems every week I have to go through her closet and move clothes to the “too small” box! Of course the best way to see how much she’s grown is with an actual growth chart. In our home we, like so many others, have made use of a wall for this task.
Not too pretty is it? It does the job, more or less, but some day we actually will have to paint that wall. The biggest problem we have with our “growth chart” is it has lead our little one to believe it is perfectly acceptable to write on the wall with a pencil. Luckily there are alternatives!
I was thrilled to have the chance to receive my very own Oliver’s Labels Room-eez Growth Chart Decals to try out. If you aren’t familiar with Oliver’s Labels and you have kids you really should check them out. Oliver’s make a variety of high quality, stylish personalized labels for clothing, shoes, sippy cups, household labels and much much more!
Now I’ll be honest, I’ve used other wall decals (not Oliver’s) in my little girl’s room before and they looked awesome but they just don’t stay put so now when I see decals in the store, no matter how pretty they may be I walk away. With Oliver’s Labels reputation for quality I was crossing my fingers that these decals would stay put!
Ordering the personalized decals was a breeze, and fun! I just went to the website and started by picking my favorite design. There are four to choose from – Transportation, Monkey, Princess and Giraffe.
They are all adorable but for my little girl I had to go with the princess. After you choose your favorite design you can get right into the personalization. You can enter up to two lines of text in a variety of fonts and colors to personalize your growth chart. One of the features I really liked, when personalizing, the website allows you to test out what your decal is going to look like in your room by letting you change the wall color to preview your decals.
When our decal kit arrived I was immediately impressed. Not only is it absolutely adorable but the quality was very evident as soon as I opened the package. This wasn’t the same flimsy material that our previous decals were made of but a thick, almost vinyl like, material with substance. But it’s NOT vinyl.
“Room-eez™ Growth Chart is made from a specialized material that is strong enough to stick on the wall forever yet gentle enough to be repositioned or removed without causing any damage. Unlike the majority of wall graphics on the market, this advanced, high quality material is not vinyl and therefore doesn’t shrink, curl or stretch the way vinyl does. That means your Room-eez™ Growth Chart won’t peel at the edges and fall off the wall over time”
I was excited to get started and put up our new growth chart! I started by reading the instructions, which were simple and easy to follow. After washing the wall (actually we hung ours on our daughter’s bedroom door) and letting it dry we got started.
The decals were very easy to put up – just make one simple measurement, peel the labels from the backing paper and stick them up. There was almost no “bubbling” at all which I’ve found common with other decals and we literally had these up perfectly in a few minutes. Molly adored the princess theme and had fun helping put up the smaller decals.
I can’t tell you enough how much I love this product! The graphics are awesome, the quality is excellent and my daughter loves it! I knew as soon as I saw the princess castle online we would put it up on her bedroom door. She is just making the transition into a big girl bed in her own room so this was a nice touch to make her room extra special for her. And I’m thrilled to finally have a proper place to track her growth! I also know that if we ever decide to move the chart we can do so without worrying about paint coming off, we can simply take it down and reapply wherever we like!
